Cowgirl opened its doors in February of 1989. The restaurant was conceived and founded by Sherry Delamarter after a visit to the Cowgirl Hall of Fame Museum in Hereford, Texas. Sherry brought the images, soul, and cooking of the Western cowgirl to New York City and created a warm, Texas-friendly atmosphere, one of the first true Country Western locations in NYC. We were also the first to offer a warm welcome to buckaroos with a kids menu and trick-roping demonstrations on Hudson Street's now-bygone parking meters.

Over the years, the Cowgirl has hosted many famous CW recording artists including Dolly Parton, Reba MacIntire, Bonnie Rait, Roseanne Cash, Billy Ray and Miley Cyrus, Roger McGuinn and many others. We are proud to be a part of uniting true wild-west spirit with the independent, creative energy of NYC.

Hostess was telling me my party wasn’t there because they don’t seat partial parties (which I hate). But they were there. Pretty pricey, food wasn’t great, especially the meat.

I mentioned on the open table reservations Ithat this dinner was a birthday dinner but there was no follow up from the waitress . I thought the fried chicken would be traditional fried chicken so I was a little disappointed that the crust was on the soft side .

The food was really bad. Nothing had any flavor, and one dish tasted moldy. Service was good, and drinks were good (and a good deal). Also love the kitschy decor. It’s a shame about the food.

Had a party of 7. They squeezed us into a 6 top, while there was a long table available the whole time. The female host or owner walking by was quite rude when I asked for the check, saying, "ask your waiter." Maybe have a smile. Not going there again most likely.

Frito pie very good tho

Cowgirl is lovely and quirky, like its imagined namesake. Excellent tasty food (I had the chopped salad and my companion the Cowgirl eggs) and great attentive service from a waitperson whose name I didn't get (a slender young woman) and friendly Phil. I'll be back.

A group of friends and I went to Cowgirl for brunch. The brunch menu was huge and had many great options. The prices were good. The food was great and everyone enjoyed their meals. The food seemed very fresh. We each got a margarita on the rocks and the drinks were tasty and strong. The service was quick but not very friendly. We did not feel rushed to finish and get out of there, which sometimes happens at brunch.

I have been going to the Cowgirl for years, but this time I brought my mom and brother. We were staying at a hotel in Midtown, but the restaurants there were so overpriced and overcrowded. Even with the cab rides from Midtown and back, the brunch we had here was a great bargain. It was also extremely filling and tasty. To my mind, the Cowgirl Hall of Fame makes the best biscuits in New York. And if I ever have to choose a last meal, it might just be the Texas Two-Step with cheese grits and the chicken apple sausage. My brother (a vegetarian) and my mom (90 years old) both loved their meals, as well as the general atmosphere of the place. Now it's a family favorite.

I always love meeting friends at The Cowgirl. The staff are very accommodating regarding seating. Waitstaff let you know if drinks will take a while if the bar is busy. Nobody has a hissy fit if you request an alternative side and I've never had an incorrect meal served. Food is excellent and portions are generous. Gets noisy at times because people come here to enjoy themselves. A neighbourhood gem.
