    Sure, there's almost always a wait, but you'll forget all of that with a single bite into their luscious Mac & Cheese. They use goat cheese which imparts a touch of tang and a super creamy sauce. Read more

    Everything on the menu is great and it's One page. It's always rotating draft. Funky new ones. The Beer cheese is a must. Fair prices and good bartender. Just added a back part for more patrons.

    Try the Earl’s Eggo waffle, drizzled with maple syrup and stacked with aged Cabot cheddar, coffee-cured bacon and rich slabs of grilled foie gras. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011. Read more

    Creative Asian fusion choices here, such as the scallion pancake taco w/ pulled pork (Earl's Taco) - yum! Beer cheese comes w/ a generous portion of perfectly crisp-on-outside-soft-on-inside toasts.

    SO happy this place has moved into the hood. Great people, very cute hipster-like decor, staff is super friendly, good prices, nice pub cheese, box of wine on tap & they have TAB by the can. Love it!

    These are my two favorite foods- beer, cheese. Everything I've eaten here is perfect but small portions. Awkwardly narrow passage next to the bar to get to the back. Very cozy and casual.

    The Calabro mozzarella with miso mayo and potato chips; the Cheddar with pork belly, kimchee, and a fried egg; and especially the pork-shoulder scallion-pancake “taco.”

    Earl's eggo waffle foie gras deliciousness!!! Also the beer cheese is superb, if you want dessert order the bread pudding beforehand bc it takes 20 mins to be prepped! Enjoy

    Mount Sinai medical residents take advantage of this middle of the avenue beer hall. 12 people make it "crowded", which it always is. Young crowd with young money to spend. excellent selections.

    This tiny bar serves some of the tastiest cheese-based food in town. Try the calabro mozzarella sandwich, topped with mayo and pickles and served on an english muffin.

    Order at the bar and then sit anywhere and they will bring the food to you. For brunch try the calabro mozzarella or the huevos rancheros!

    Get the NY State Cheddar: a grilled cheese sandwich w/ pork belly, kimchi, and fried egg. Inspired collision of American sandwich staple and Korean goodness.

    Come hither. They stop serving the waffle at 10pm. The taco is delicious and best split with someone (unless you're Adam Richman).

    I wouldn't call them grilled cheese but they are delicious sandwiches with cheese on them. Picnic table seating in the back.

    The delicious kale salad isn't embarrassing to order especially if you eat all of your table's beer cheese

    The bread is really good ! The place is tiny but it's a cool spot to stop have a beer and relax.

    So there’s only 4 beers on tap, but don't worry - they curate the list so well that you'll still have trouble choosing.

    Beer cheese and tomato soup are musts. If you are still hungry split a grilled cheddar with a pal.
