    Great brunch place. Fun location and lots of food options.
  • Marc S.
    Great restaurant. Try the artichoke dip and the burger. Bloody mary's are also great!
  • Rhiannon B.
    Absolutely love this place hidden down an alley. Great vibes and good for both brunch (the shakshuka egg skillet is delicious) and dinner

    Awesome place for dinner. The mussels are fantastic.

    The chicken breast is 🔥🔥🔥, so is the artichoke dip, and the location, and the decor, this place is 👌👌👌

    Meh. Hype exceeds expectations. Waiter was also a dick.

    To get here walk down the alley way across the steer from Loreley's.
  • Leanne Z.
    Very atmospheric.
  • Angie J.
    Order the skillet! The upstairs is definitely the place to get seated. ❤️
  • Conrad G.
    Cozy would be a euphemism to describe how narrow tables are stacked together where we sat. The Lamb & Pork Merguez Meatballs and Grilled Lamb Chops were worth it though. Could be romantic with a date.
  • Berk K.
    Really cute place at the end of an alley. Dont get the trout, because it comes with hard-boiled eggs. Get bacon with dates and the artichoke dip. So delicious! Decent minimalist bloody Mary.
  • Alison B.
    Unremarkable brunch, but the poached eggs with cheese grits and asparagus is yummy, as are the cocktails.

    The wait can be a little long but the food makes up for it easily. Definitely have the artichoke dip. Menu rotates every 4 months based on what's in season!

    Freemans serves incredible American food for brunch, lunch and dinner but it's the cozy decor and courteous service that makes this spot feel like home. Read more

    Love the brunch here! The alleyway and restaurant are super cute. Be prepared to wait, especially on Sundays, but it's worth it.

    Super cozy atmosphere. If you like whiskey/scotch, get The Daddy.
  • Cole K.
    Even if the food wasn't good, it'd still be worth it for the cozy vibe. Luckily, the food is delightful, the drinks eclectic, and the staff friendly.

    "The Daddy" is so freakin tasty and nice to sip on. Pair it with the cheese plate and you've done it right.

    Their English breakfast is a heavy and delicious dish. The restaurant is quite spacious with two floors. Still be prepared for a 1h wait on weekends.

    It's a fun place to be in, as you lead non-NYers down a hidden alley, but food is pretty basic. Grab a drink and a bite at the bar (if it's not too crammed).

    Low light, buzzing atmos. Lovely staff, sublime cocktails. Artichoke dip is sensational. Shame the fillet mignon was unseasoned - melt in the mouth but flavourless. Pork belly & beans YUM!
