“A must see for music lovers”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Can't say enough about the staff or the nostalgia of this place. If you love music, you will love it here. Great bands, great people and a ton of fun.

“Pilgrimage!”
Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

Went to the Pony on a pilgrimage before the Springsteen gig on September 22 and it didn't disappoint! Grubby from the outside but once inside found it very atmospheric (and with $3 Yeungling too!). Great memorabilia on the walls, a must visit for any UK Bruce fan!

“You Just Have To”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

History, stale beer and upcoming talent. It's a must for all and a place that has stood still as my grays pop up! Nothing like the live music that comes from within those walls. Girls including me still wait for Bruce to walk through the door,

“great live music venue”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

the stone pony is a live music venue that's been putting on tremendous talent for many years. very little seating so get there as soon as the door opens is you want to grab something inside. an outdoor bar area is good for a sit down break. the music is loud so bring ear plugs if you want to stand up close to the stage. this is the place where bruce springsteen started off. its got recording level artists in a beach front setting. lots of fun!

“The Legend”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Are you kidding. If you like live music and you haven't been here something is wrong with you. The list of bands that have played this place is unbelievable. It's a must visit place. Hurry and get there before the condo creeps decide to knock it down
