Cute atmosphere, really good catfish

We stopped here for a late night snack. The drinks were strong, the catfish was amazing, and the atmosphere was really cute! Service was quick and courteous.

My wife and I were walking in the area when we came across cowgirl. The exterior is quirky and we were curious about the place so decided to call in for a drink and a bite to eat. The quirky theme continues on the inside and although it's kind of dated, I liked the place and it made me smile.... More

It had been about 10 years since I was last at Cowgirl so, on a recent trip to NYC, we were in the neighborhood and decided to stop for dinner. It has not changed at all. As usual, it was busy and had a good vibe. It is definitely dated and the food, while not anything special, is consistent and... More

We needed a quick bite to eat after several beers and Cowgirl is the place to grab that menu and make it fit the bill. We ordered water, lots of water for me and ice tea to hydrate, the Frito Beef Brisket nachos and 20 piece wings. The Frito beef brisket sounds weird but it is so darn delicious. Love... More

Go to Cowgirl for the nachos, Papa Joel's pulled pork sandwich, the adorable sweet potato ice cream dessert and the overall vibe. Cowgirl is a neighborhood joint no tourist to NYC should miss. It's also a stone's throw to the new Whitney and the High Line, so a great spot to visit after or before either of those hot NYC... More

Cowgirls is a decent spot to come AFTER you've been drinking. Not a huge fan of their drinks or food given I'm sort of a conscious eater so "Chicken Fried Steak" or "Black Eyed Peas Salsa Dip" doesn't appeal to me. However, "All Chopped Up" is my absolute FAVORITE dish! It has: romain lettuce, grilled chicken, bacon, sliced green apples,... More

Such a fun place to dine in the village! Funky food the largest iced coffee we ever had and delicious breakfasts! If you're downtown and you're looking for some country in the city I would highly recommend this place.

Sat on the patio for drinks and ended up eating an early dinner. Food was very good, South West/Mexican. Sangria and Margaritas were great. Happy hour 50% deal on a hot day made it easy to stay a long time. Really calm and comfortable, easy to forget you are in NYC.Friendly staff.

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
