“The food is good too!”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

Full disclosure: I did not drink any of the beer, so I really can't comment on that. But I stopped in for lunch and was pleased by how large and delicious the chicken cutlet sandwich was. I'd go back for that and to try some of the other food. The place is small (so it can get crowded) but had a good, cozy vibe. And the waiter was very friendly. If you are looking for a casual place to eat and don't mind some noise or crowds, I recommend this place. Especially if you like beer, since I hear the beer is good too.

“Great selection and good scene”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Really nice selection of beers, the wait staff is helpful and knowledgeable. There is a really nice vibe to this place. When I was there, we saw hipsters, old couples and children and somehow all blended harmoniously, and that was before the beer!!

“Just leave before you're drunk! :-)”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

I like this place quite a bit. Blind Tiger always has a nice variety of East Coast beer, as well as representation from other parts of the country. The decor is "pubby" and welcoming, but the focus is on the beer. Definitely try and make it when the pace is a bit slower, as you can get a table or spot at the bar easily, it's nice and friendly when it fills up too.

If you're looking for a good, unassuming, casual place in the village to have a quality micro, check this place out.

“Best craft beer bar in NYC”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

Great selection, knowledgeable staff and really cool atmosphere. The crowd was diverse and very friendly. Good place to come to try beers or to be introduced into the craft beer world. Great place to gather with friends.
