This was our second time here. The last time was more than 2 years ago, but I doubt much has changed. As before, when we walked in, things looked bleak. Wall-to-wall jocks watching wall-to-wall TVs, a different sport on each. Last time, we escaped the crowd and the accompanying noise by moving to the back room. This time, that room was occupied by a private party. It was too loud to talk, and there didn't seem to be any place to sit. Uh oh! Big-chested guys OOH OOOH OOOHing all night. Just what you want to spend your evening with, right?
No! Jon, the manager, came to the rescue. Not only did he find us a safe corner to sit in. As we grew (4 to 8 to 10 to 12), he had the staff moving furniture, digging up chairs, physically moving people to accommodate us. Jessica, our waitress, was as tolerant and helpful as her boss. She even split the bill and put up with mind-changes and mind-numbing requests. If I were the waitress, I would have quickly told us where to stick that order of ""a glass of ice with nothing else in it."" The staff here really saved the day and moved an ordinary sports bar into the 4-star range.

I recently made a 30th birthday party there for my twin sisters. The manager put up all of the decorations I bought, as well as set up the slide show I made. The bartender was quick and the waitstaff was awesome. They even gave us the whole bar for our friends. This was a great experience. In addition, the owner is a nice guy.

I had my birthday party at Stone Creek last month and we rented out the back room. It was great because we were able to have the entire space to ourselves. They paid for a DJ for us and he was willing to play whatever we wanted. The staff was great - very kind and fast. I would definitely reccomend Stone Creek for a private party!

I just moved to the area recently and thought I would give this local place a try. I'm really glad I did. Fantastic Happy hour prices and the bartender was very attentive and cool. I called a couple of friend to meet me there and were able to get comfy on the couches on the stage area. We got some food and had a really fun relaxing time. I'll be back!
After reading some of the positive reviews on this site, I decided to have my birthday party at Stone Creek. Being in the Murray Hill area was a big plus since I had friends coming from uptown and downtown. It's easily accesible off the trains and pretty centrally located. The staff did a great job. They were VERY accomodating from the beginning. I booked the party with Jessica(I think she's one of the owner's sisters). She was easy to work with and very responsive. We had the back room to ourselves which was spacious and completely private! Our bartender Victoria was really sweet and quick with the drinks. We ordered some of their passed appetizer plates and all of the food was excellent. They also allowed us to decorate the room and bring our own cake without a cutting fee. The DJ (Caleb) played whatever music my friends and I wanted. All in all it was a great experience and I'm sure my friends and I will be back for more birthday parties in the future!

On Friday afternoon I made a Saturday night dinner reservation for 5 for a friend's birthday and gave my name and phone number. When the birthday girl arrived at the bar on Saturday night at 8:30, she was informed that they had no record of my reservation and that the bar was closing at 9pm! When I showed up shortly thereafter to ""discuss"" the situation with whom I can only presume was the manager, he was aware that I had a reservation (clearly demonstrating that my friend was initially lied to) but was never given a phone number to call me. Then, after some prodding, the ""manager"" finally admitted that they were closing down at 9pm on a Saturday because they booked a private party AFTER I had already made my dinner reservation. As consolation for this second rate treatment, we were told that we could stay in the empty bar until 10 for a free drink but no food was available....because that's a classy way to celebrate a friend's birthday, right? To top it all off, in person, the place is shabby looking and definitely does not live up to its pictures on the website. I will never visit this establishment ever again, and discourage anyone else from going here either.

This review is long overdue! I hosted a birthday party for my husband at Stone Creek in January. We had been to the bar once before for a birthday party and I immediately fell in love with it, which is why we made it a point to go back. It is the perfect cross between a bar and lounge!
The owner Jon was an absolute pleasure to deal with during the whole planning phase and did everything he could to accomodate my every request. He was always accessible and even added the DJ for the night which really made the night fabulous! We ended up having between 50 and 60 people so we took up the back room and most of the front of thebar. I was a little nervous at the beginning of the night when the bar was a bit crowded and the back room was occupied by another group. But things turned around very quickly and our guests were able to use the back room/bar and they ended up taking over most of the front bar as well.
The manager Luka (Lukaz?) was very friendly and took care of all our guests. All the bartenders were extremely nice and friendly. Having the DJ was great because you could basically request the music based on what our guests enjoyed and he took every request!
Overall it was a wonderful experience and I would recommend Stone Creek to anyone who is planning a party! We will definitely go back!

I work a few blocks away from Stone Creek and it is my place to unwind. The place has a cozy atmosphere and the bartendars are friendly and attentive. John and Luka are always quick behind the bar (this seems to be becoming a rarity in NY) and have a quick one liner to make me laugh. The food is your typical bar food and is OK but it is even better after a few glasses of wine. Note to the Kitchen - ease up on the salt. My girlfriends and I have made it our afterwork hangout and thought these guys deserved a good word on the Search.
