    This is the best Caribbean food I've ever tasted, the plantain dipped in the homemade jerk sauce is sublime, wonderful jerk chicken, I can't fault it. the staff were fantastic too

    One of our favorite new bars in Williamsburg. The frozen Dark 'n Stormy is out of this world and perfect on a hot summer day. The jerk chicken also cannot be missed.

    What's good? Rice cakes, rib tips, jerk chicken, plantains...I wanted to eat EVERYTHING! Tip: Great place to dine with friends and your dog...where we made new friends with their dogs. We'll return!

    Have a Van Damme inspired cocktail while lounging outside. The Carribbean meets concrete with a well-seasoned menu of island bites. And there's a crazy wing thing canopy too.

    Raining on your parade? Grab a seat under the awning to enjoy those summer showers with finger licking food and spectacular cocktails. All served with a smile.

    Plantain chip nachos and frozen Dark n Stormy will get you a meal unlike any other in the city. Check out the Jerk chicken sandwich and the Left Hand Milk Stout as well

    Last night had one of the best DJs I've heard in long time mixing up young and old pop and rock and hip hop. Great place, big, and fire pit outside.

    Delicious Caribbean food and great atmosphere with plenty of outdoor seating, good service and the best kale I've ever had. Scoop it with the plantain chips. Yum.

    I miss Loreley, but I gave Battery Harris a try. The beer selection is decent and the prices seem to be reasonable. I'm not really a cocktail guy but I tried the Dark and Stormy & it was delicious

    Such wonderful drinks. Favs are jalapeño mimosa and drank and stormy. Feels like you are on the beach when you are really inches from the BQE.

    I can't remember the last time I've been somewhere in NYC where I loved everything about the vibe, space, menu and cocktail selection. They nailed it.

    Look for the lit arrow, you can't miss it! $7 beer and shot, signature slushie Dark & Stormy, beef patties, pool table. Add friends and enjoy.

    good for big groups (still pretty undiscovered), good carribean comfort food: jerk wings, jerk chix and curry sammies, and frozen dark and stormies!

    I love this place but I wish they would update their music. They used to play better music. I brought some friends here from out of town and had to leave because the music was so outdated

    This place is the best. The waitstaff and bartenders hook it up (Lauren always keeps you covered with drinks and impeccable playlist curation). Heaters and walls for winter = mainstay year round

    The best kept secret in Williamsburg! Late night pork buns, empanadas and jerked wings -- I say YESSS. Cute backyard for date night or group chillin'

    Good brunch spot with a well stocked bar and selection of Caribbean inspired dishes. Perfect for a sunny day.

    Frozen dark n' stormy is not the same as the non-frozen variety (aka much sweeter), but still refreshing and delicious. Play pool for $1 to break the ice.

    Frozen Dark 'n Stormys help beat the NYC summer heat. Sit outside and enjoy the occasional happy dog at the mix of bench and lawn chair tables.

    The frozen piña colada is delicious, outdoor and indoor seating. A little noisy but also friendly ☺️

    Battery Harris is nothing short of amazing. I had my wedding here because of the great atmosphere and amazing food!

    Excellent Bloody Mary. Thicker mix with lots of black pepper, just the right amount of horseradish, and a good kick.

    Great music and great vibe - if a little less Authetic feeling than it used to be. Good place to dance!

    This reincarnation of the former Lorelei spot on Frost shed its pretentious interior for a more relaxed vibe. Service was very attentive on Monday night @ 7:30pm.

    Frozen Dark 'n Stormies FTW. Also, the Jerk Chicken here is quite possibly the best thing you'll put in your mouth.

    This place was actually really cute I like the outdoor-ish seating and the whole feel is very tropical 🌴

    Feels crowded in the winter, but the roof comes off in the summer which makes it perfect for a beer outside after work.

    House tip. Ask for a Black Eagle or Lionheart if it's Friday night and the pretty brunette is bartending.

    Food is good, the Dark & Stormy is a must, but the other drinks are well made too.

    Solid beer list and creative cocktail menu in a space that certainly feels further from the BQE than it is.

    Mexican eggs. Jerk fries. MMM. There's also this frozen whiskey ginger drink that's divine.

    The frozen dark & stormy is anything you could ever ask for in an alcoholic slushie. Just make sure it's actually frozen before you order it.

    Chicken dishes can be substituted with tofu. Try the house salad with jerk tofu & a veggie patty.

    $11 is worth it for the frozen dark & stormy. It's really so good.

    Pulls a large crowd on the weekends and the food is pretty great, but never order delivery from this place. They always cancel 1hr after ordering.
