    Fun place with great drinks. We had the crab dip appetizer, hot friend chicken sandwich and the hangover breakfast bowl (Sunday brunch menu). I did not consider the Hot friend chicken sandwich spicy, I wish it was hotter. The wonton chips that come with the crab dip are delicious! The bowl also tasted awesome but I wish they cut the home fries and Brussel sprouts smaller. I could have drank the dirty Chai tea alcoholic drink all day. It was handicap accessible but is street parking and I only noticed one handicap stop.

    The Bowery is a favorite of mine. The food is excellent, the service is fantastic and overall vibe is upbeat. The many seating options are an added plus. You can sit at the bar, in the bar area, in the dining area and now outside. The outside seating is a must try if you haven’t!

    Booked a heated yurt for my daughter’s birthday. Outside cold and windy. Inside warm and toasty with blankets. Great decorations. Spacious table. Service was 5 star despite being outside and the need to zip and unzip. Food was excellent. From apps to dinner and drinks. Everyone was happy. Menu can satisfy most accommodations. Highly recommended

    Omg I had the BEST pancakes I've had in my entire life at the Bowery Bar! I am not lying when I tell you I've never had anything like it in my entire 38 years on this earth!! I'm sad that I live 4 hours away... I'll be dreaming about them until the next time I visit. Do yourself a favor and order the coffee cake pancakes! It will change your life... thank me later.

    We celebrated my daughter's 21st birthday in one of the yurts. Everything was wonderful, the food, service and ambience. The reservation fee was deducted from the total, and yurt was decorated beautifully. The yurt also had heaters making it comfortable in the February weather. Our server, Gabby, was superb. I would recommend go there for a night out or special occasion.

    We dined in one of the yurts. It was winter so we had to use our jackets, but it was still an awesome, cozy experience. Food was delicious, my only complaint was, I thought the appetizers were a little bit overpriced.

    We went for brunch. It was so loud a table of two could not really talk to each other without yelling a bit. The menu is lacking more fresh and healthy options. I had the Bowery Brunch Bowl. I found it to be very greasy. My husband had the breakfast tacos. He said they were tasty but quite boring and looked like they were thrown on the plate. Obviously, the place is appropriate for some because it was packed. It is not about the food at all. It's really about hangover food with more booze. Very loud. If you are into that you might love it.

    We booked one of the yurts for a late lunch, and it was a great experience overall. We loved having a quiet space to ourselves. Sam was a wonderful waitress! Our only critique would be having a more expansive menu. Most of the options with meat were mostly if not all seasoned or marinated with Cajun seasoning. Nothing wrong, we were just hoping for a little bit more variety in the options of flavors.

    We dined in a private yurt in the yard. It was beautiful, warm, and fun. My only wish is that they offered more basic vegetarian options. The food is yummy but a little heavy and spicy.

The yurts were warm and beautifully decorated, the music was great and upbeat, and we all had a blast at our ladies holiday brunch!!!

    We love Bowery Bar! Great meals every time we go and the staff is always very friendly. We love the misters on the outdoor patio in the summer but have yet to try out the Yurts in the winter (it’s on our list!). Personal favorites include the crab Rangoon dip, chicken sandwich, and Buffalo cauliflower bites. Drinks are always delicious as well.
