Ate dinner here with a group of friends. I enjoyed the crab mac and cheese, my friends liked the salads. Great rotating beer selection. The service was friendly and fast. Would definitely go again.

The Crazy Horse sits on a downtown corner, with outside seating available. They have many drink specials, and the food is always good -and hearty portions. The inside sits sort of like alley seating and can be pretty loud, but the atmosphere is very enjoyable, it is NOT obnoxious loud. The bar side is very fun and holds many reunion,... More

I grabbed lunch and a few beers out on their patio across from my hotel. Service was good, as was the food. Decent beer selection. The patio was great for catching a few rays and people watching on a beautiful, 80 degree day in May.

It's Spring in Bloomington, a fine time to dine outside. The Crazy Horse offers alfresco dining, so we returned there. LOUD because of heavy traffic passing immediately tableside. Otherwise, the server was prompt and pleasant, the dining options were varied, and our choices (small salad and a half club sandwich for about $6) were excellent.

The wait staff and bartenders are all very friendly and the pub grub at lunch is excellent. I enjoy sitting at the bar, because that's where all the action is!

Ordered a hamburger with Mac and cheese, both were pretty good. Also got fish and chips, fries were good but the fish was actually fish " nuggets" not filets like we were expecting. The coleslaw was warm and nasty. With so many places to go in Bloomington will not be back.

Came here for dinner when we couldn't get a table at the Irish Lion next door. The sign said to seat ourselves when we walked in for dinner, so that we did. The waitress then came and took our drink order and we ordered the crab dip appetizer. It looked and smelled nasty when it arrived. But the bread rounds... More

Loved the Crazy Horse. Went there in the evening. Their soups are great and inexpensive. Sometimes they are very spicy, so check with your waiter. TVs all over for sports fans. Nice paintings and memorabilia on the walls. Live music sometimes in the evening. Great specials every night, including on beers, wine (half price) and hard liquor (2 for 1).... More

Visited the place a few times while staying across the street at the Hyatt. Good Steak sandwich but I must say I thought the service later in the evening was a bit unattentive. Literally sat at the bar for 10 minutes and the bartenders never achknowledged me so I sat myself in dining area. Felt the staff was more concerned... More

This restaurant is a Bloomington institution. Its conveniently located right off the Courthouse square in a narrow space with low lighting and music. The food is Greek. Service is friendly and quick. The salads are chilled. The main courses are appropriately warm or hot. The quality is consistent and tasty. There's a bar upstairs with TVs. Downstairs is quieter and... More
