Sports bar with good food?

lambretta76 May 27, 2008 01:55 PM

A buddy and I want to meet up to catch some games tomorrow night - he the Celtics and me the Penguins - and we're trying to think of a sports bar that also has decent food. Something along the lines of a Bounce Deuce, but with edible food (and perhaps minus the dbs).

Anyone have any good suggestions in Manhattan or nearby Brooklyn?

    Personally, I like the bar food at Stout. The space itself is quite large, as well.

      You know what - I thought of Stout last night, too. Went there to watch the World Cup a few years back. And the food wasn't half bad - definitely better than most places that are "sports bars". I had an Irish boxty or something that was quite tasty. Thanks!

      I like the bar food at 1849. They make the best wings in the city and their nachos are nothing to scoff at.

        I second that, Jungman, And at $.20 per wing from 3-6 daily and all day and night Sunday and Monday, those delicious little bad boys might be the best deal in the entire city.

            Sorry JungMann, I'll have to disagree - Croxley's Ale has THE best wings in nyc. Monday/ Wednesday $0.10 wings, and a great beer selection. I will have to try 1849 to see how it compares!

              I'm familiar with the rivalry. I will have to make the trek eastward to try Croxley's, though they still won't have as many tvs and monster-sized party plates as 1849!!

            depends on what area you're looking for. stout is a good choice. i also like mollys and back page on the UES, if you're going to be up there.

              I always thought the food wasn't too good at Back Page. Kinsale on 3rd avenue between 94th and 95th has solid food and is a very good sports bar overall.

                Now that I think about it, I was thinking just about wings. Not sure about the rest of the menu.

                  That's fair then. I've never had the wings. Think I had a grilled chicken sandwich and my girlfriend got a salad. Neither were great.

              Stout is definitely a good choice, especially on night where there is nothing going on in the garden Can get pretty crowded there.

              The POUR HOUSE has better than average food and a good beer selection. 11th and 3rd ave.

              Anyone have any Seaport area suggestions?

                Personally, I don't like when sports bars get way too crowded and you don't have a good view of the tv. Plus I feel Stout is way overpriced.

                Stout's good, although pricey and often crowded. Lansdowne Road, 10th Ave between 43rd and 44th is good. The Kinsale is definitely a safe bet.

                  barrow street ale house is very typical food; not sure I'd go as far as decent, but they do have a buffalo chicken sandwich, their fries are large and they have a nice spinach salad. its a sports bar though. they also have certain specials on each night.

                    Seconding the mention of Kinsale.

                    Also on the Upper East Side, Ship of Fools and Southern Hospitality.
