• Buck Wild Eats & Drinks: The Stewed Cow

    Disclaimer: you’ll eat your weight in appetizers and entrees at the Stewed Cow, but you’ll live to tell the tale. Mainly because everything on this laid-back, All-American pub’s menu is delectable {plus, there’s a mechanical bull}!




    The Stewed Cow is a restaurant/bar at 4th and Adams (in place of the old Gaslight). With a long, high bar + some Western decor (skulls, a mechanical bull, and mostly rock/country music), it’s a nice break from the usual sports bars in Hoboken. The redesign looks really great – dimly lit and a cozy, rugged feel.



     Here’s some yummy things you can order:








    All apps are delish. The menu is chock full of fun, All-American fare with a little twist (think: buffalo calamari with blue cheese sprinkled on top. Ah-mazing). Their truffle fries were also delectable – the chips are #nextlevel. While there were a good portion of meat entrees and ‘tizers – a few vegetarian dishes were mixed in as well.

    As far as whiskey selection goes, the Stewed Cow is easily making its mark as the “Whiskey spot” in Hoboken – with over 70 types of whiskey for the tasting. We recommend the 6 Shot Sour – a sweet beverage  (in a mason jar – of course) that was a little bit dangerous, since you can barely taste the booze.



    Weekends are packed {maybe it’s because there’s a bull you can ride?} Weeknights are a bit better as far as crowds go. On weekend days there is also the “infamous brunch” for $20 – similar to Gaslight’s brunch which consisted of 2 morning cocktails, entree, + “a lil’ somethin’ from the house.” Not a bad deal, especially for a large crowd!

    Overall – the Stewed Cow is a gem. It is a fantastic local, neighborhood bar with some All-American flavor + a Western twist, making it quite the unique lower midtown Hoboken spot. Prices were very reasonable, and the food was extremely good.
