    The rustic wood and brick interior pulls in a youngish crowd for regional beers such as Ommegang Abbey Ale and plates of buttermilk-fried chicken sandwiches, mac and cheese and fried pickles. Read more

    Pickles are the bedrock of this fun-loving café that looks like an old-fashioned Jewish deli. They’re servin’ up Southern fare with a Jewish flare! Don’t miss the XL biscuit sandwich and fried Oreos.

    I've never been compelled to write a tip, but the food is heavy but delicious and perfect for winter. The beer list is great, and the variety could make any beer snob happy. Highly recommend.

    A one of a kind joint on the UWS - but a true gem. Solid atmosphere and a must try! Pro tip: Get yourself a growler.

    First Date? Avoid the sandwiches, they're messy, but definitely worth checking out otherwise (Honey Chicken & Chicken BLT). Don't make the mistake of not getting Fried Pickles, so good.

    The Founders Rübæus, or the Peak Organic Fresh Cut Pils (probably the best beer they’ve ever made), are a great for balancing the acid of the pickling liquid.

    The food is awesome! The fried chicken is excellent and so are the huge, fluffy pancakes. Loved the fried pickles, and Mac n cheese. The MUSHROOM GRAVY is amazing. Bloody Mary is excellent.

    I challenge you to eat the southern BLT like a sandwich! Between the friend green tomatoes, incredible buttermilk fried chicken, and the towering pickle slaw this is a mountain of food!

    The salad wedge appetizer is an amazing amalgam of blue cheese, cherry tomatoes, bacon, and of course lettuce. True: delicious, crunchy, crisp, flavorful. False: nutritious.

    The Bloody Mary at Jacob’s Pickles is a piece of art, assuming your idea of art involves topping things with eggs and bacon. They'll also hook you up w/ addable beets, cucumbers, carrots, and pickles. Read more

    Disappointing. Waitress forgot our order and only realized it 20 minutes later. When the food finally came it was not hot and there is just no way to eat a burger on a biscuit without it falling apart
