    The Alobar was one of the best deserts I've had in ages.

    The tips on here are spot on! Maple bacon popcorn. Pork Belly was delish! Brussels hash also a winner for a green.

    We've lived in LIC for the past two years and had never been here. We missed out. Everything we had was awesome. Maple bacon popcorn is a must.

    The Maple Bacon Popcorn is very Sweet but tasty might want to leave it for dessert

  • Scott L.

    Went with the small plates and really enjoyed the pork belly, gnocchi, and octopus.

    The pulled pork grits are a little too dry, but the much tipped mushroom toast is great and the popcorn is amazing.

    The maple bacon popcorn is incredibly addictive.

    Not sure if it was cause we sat in the corner or had the Whiskey Passport (free drink at a bunch of bars in the city) but service was less than stellar.

    Pork belly is fantastic

    Among the many great things in this bar I have to mention the desserts... Absolutely fantastic.

    Long wait for the cobler... IS worth it

    Visiting an artist friend in LIC, we tried this place 1st time. The kitchen is serious about the food. Nice atmosphere for an intimate chat. Everything we ate taste good.

    Good casual neighborhood spot. Super friendly and fun staff.

    Mezcal Mary for brunch

    The maple bacon popcorn is a no-brainer. I had the Prime NY Strip, which is both delicious and deliciously-priced. Solid ambiance. Definitely coming back, probably with a pretty girl.

    Maple bacon popcorn and peanut butter French toast was worth trying. Everything else looks better than it actually taste.

    Kelly Wong · November 5, 2014
  • Helen

    Brunch is so yummy! The main entrees are okay, but the sides-particularly the cheesy grits and bacon- are excellent. Only $5 for a plate of bacon too! What a deal! Will definitely be going back

    Brunch > Dinner in my opinion!

    Whiskey flights!

    BLT is overpriced. Very disappointing. Store-bought white bread can not be the foundation of a $14 sandwich.

    Melanie Lahti · September 21, 2014
  • Irma Z.

    Try the cheeses - the smoked ricotta is amazing as are the pickled peaches. And at lunch, they have a $5 glass of gruener veltliner. Definitely one of my LIC faves!!!

    Irma Zandl · September 3, 2014
  • Rory P.

    Food is delicious but if you are a tall person, ask to sit at a round table or a tall bar table. The square tables will kill your knees!

    Rory Parness · August 17, 2014
  • Kristen P.

    Yum! Nice brunch. Get the maple butter popcorn, the steak and eggs, and the peach cobbler

    Kristen Payne · August 9, 2014

    The menu is pretty unique with some very tasty choices. Love it

    Half chicken, bacon maple popcorn, cheese, wine, friendly staff, salads

    The menu rotates so I won't recommend a dish, but go here for brunch or whiskey. 🍳

    E Murray · July 5, 2014

    This place has a menu like you've never seen before! Between the Maple Bacon Popcorn and Vanilla Glazed Carrots, your stomach will be pleasantly surprised and completely satisfied. · June 20, 2014

    Incredible selection of 100 whiskeys.

    Treat a lovely lady to the best brunch in LIC.

    The apothecary-inspired restaurant is beloved for French country-inspired gourmet like wild mushroom toast to the wildly popular maple bacon popcorn.

    Sloppy Joe is the move here. Add a spicy Bloody Mary and you are at your beach.

    I tried to take a picture of the Steak & Eggs to show y'all how good it is, but they disappeared too quickly. Just order it.

    I love eating at Alobar. It's my go to spot when I'm in a pinch and it never fails. Great food, many drinks to choose from and the ambiance is great to bring a date, loved one or friends. Read more

    Offering free maple bacon popcorn with large plate at dinner or a free mimosa with a large plate at brunch during #QUEENSLOVESuberX, 11/29-12/1.

    AVOID lunch! I dine here often and love it. However, the phrase "3 strikes you're out" rings true for horrible lunch service. It's always the same waiter/bartender, now dubbed moody mustache.

    JenKudu · November 2, 2013
  • Michelle C.

    Great place to come for dinner or just drinks! Ambience is cozy and wait staff is friendly. Favorites were: Vernon smash cocktail, mushroom toast, and bone marrow! Crispy pork was divine as well!

    Wonderful staff, the food is incredible and even the freaking bathrooms are charming.

    Pretty decent beer selection, good cocktails, and the best damn burger in LIC.

    Hard to comment on the food -- maybe it'll arrive before sunrise. Service: suboptimal.

    Mushroom Toast!!
