Blondies Sports offers live music, Monday night all you can eat wings with beer specials, college basketball and football shown on two big screen TVs and 40 other TVs. This sports bar also offers a party room with private bar accomodating 20 to 100 people.
A few menu items served include Blondies tossed salad, grilled chicken salad, half pound hamburgers, Blondies Philly cheese steak with onions, BLTs, chicken tenders and much more.
Beer, wings, and tons of flat-screens--what more could you ask of a sports bar? – TV sets airing the big game line every inch of this narrow Upper West Side pub--the brainchild of two enterprising Playboy bunnies and their flight attendant friend. The ceiling displays T-shirts from various fire companies throughout the U.S. The decor is otherwise unremarkable, with plain brick walls, a long bar, and an adjacent table-service area, which also features several oversized booths. Sports fans stop by to wind down after work or gear up for a Saturday night with some good, semi-clean, all-American fun. Glasses are constantly being refilled and the staff is friendly and competent.
Beware of delivery guys – Food is no better than you average bar food, so the condescending attitude an terrible customer service can not be explained.
Buyer beware, the delivery guys will walk away with your credit card. If they do, be aware, Blondie's will NOT send them back with it. They will tell you how it is your fault, and make no attempt to do the right thing.
Enjoy yourself... that is if the staff approves. – Nothing you can order here you can't get anywhere else. Careful to not put anything in the jukebox the bar staff disapproves of, they will single you out and skip your songs without a refund. Then somehow swear loudly and act surprised when they recieve a lousy tip equivalent to the service and treatment you recieved. Thanks for a great birthday Blondies (sarcasm)
Ideal UWS spot for brews, wings and friendly neighborhood feel – I've been to a lot of sports bars in NYC and most are simply too rundown/frat-like or trying too hard to be upscale....Blondie's hits it just right with the perfect combination of consistently great bar food (wings, burgers etc.), a clean comfortable space, new flat screens (finally!) and a staff that makes you feel at home. It's the consummate neighborhood bar and if you are staying in...they also deliver!
Shotty Service But Good Wings – Blondie's seems to be the sports destination of many alumni chapters from major universities, probably because of its immense space with multiple televisions all over the place making it ideal for group parties. The service is not the best, our "blondie" waitresses have on more than one occasion been snooty or slow in getting what we ask for and have even bickered about receiving a 15% tip. The food is typical bar menu type stuff, but Blondie's is known for their cheap wings, which are quite tasty. Drinks are not cheap, a standard mainstream beer could run you $5 or more and cocktails are typically $10 and up. Come here for the games, but don't let the alcohol and food sneak up on your bill.
Ohio State Bar follows the path of Maurice Clarett – Just like the once-great Maurice Clarett, Blondie's was a great place to eat wings and drink beers with friends. Now, profit is the clear driver, the old charm is gone. For beer at adult club prices ($5.50 per Corona), emaciated wings, and sad salads, try Blondies. They put a lot of money into flat screens, cut the quality of the food and raised the prices...New Yorkers are too smart for that.
Wings – I usaually order mine in and watch the game at home or at bourbon ST, the wings and bar food are the best on the westside of manhattan.
great place – I don't understand some of these ratings, because I had a great time there. We didn't know to make a reservation, but when we got there, the lady made every effort to get us seated. I thought the food was good for bar food, but the service was excellent! The waitress was very attentive and everyone was so friendly! Plus, they have every game on. I highly recommend!
Very Disappointed – This place is nothing special. I had heard of Blondies from numerous reviews so I figured I would go try the place because after all, I live on the west side on 82nd street and westend ave. To my total dismay there wasn't even a large screen in the entire restaurant. Not only that, but the food and the service were way below par. The place is also to small and loud to bring a lot of friends and be comfortable.
Ok... Not impressed – I've tried a bunch of Sports Restaurants looking for the perfect place for me and my buddies... and this isn't it. Pretty nice atmosphere but just so-so food and service. This is not the place to bring a big group of people. I might give it another try but I was not impressed by anything.
