    Amazing food and beer options. Great after work hangout. Wish they were opened for lunch. The burger is insane!

    Absolutely love this place. It's excellent for groups and they made hosting my birthday party super easy. There's a huge upstairs area and the beer selection is 💯🔥 (plus the poutine is p good too).

    Everything. Today I came for brunch and the scrambled eggs and the fried chicken with gravy and a egg on top were so good. The waiters and bartenders are friendly and helpful. My favorite spot in LIC.

    If you pair one of Alewife's many craft brews with a table near the LIC bar and restaurant's upstairs fireplace, even the coldest of ales won't make you shiver. Read more

    I like doing brunch here. $30 all you can drink (for a subset of the craft beer selection), with some delicious food. The chicken and biscuits is quite tasty, and the wings are juicy and flavorful.

    Not a Happy New Year for brunch here: price went up and quality of food and drinks went way down. Mimosas were basically just OJ, and not even the fresh squeezed one they had in 2013.

    It might look far away on a map, but this LIC bar is just one subway stop from Grand Central. And it's worth the trip for one of the best rotating lists of American and imported drafts in the city.
