    Comfortable southern and soul food restaurant with good pickles, biscuit sandwiches, and beer.

  • The Wall Street Journal

    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.

    Our favorite spot. Jacob is here every night & is more than happy to talk to every table. Fantastic food. We've tried & enjoyed everything on the menu. Great beer selection.

    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.

    Beautiful interior, great staff and a good bar -Try the Porch Sipper & Bloody BLT! Spectacular rib dishes, great fried pickles and excellent barbecue sauces. Excellent food, and large portions.

    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.

    Try the Biscuits & Fixins for an indulgent treat! They come with a wide variety of spreads from organic butter to clover honey.

    Get the largest Growler and share it with a friend's...or drink all 64oz yourself. Up to you!

    Darris Lee · February 23, 2012

    Any place with fried pickles on the menu and root beer on tap is ALL RIGHT BY ME. Also the biscuits. Eat all of them.

    Best fried pickles I've ever had. Plus, grab a refillable Growler to go!

    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.

    Fun place on the UWS great for groups at the long communal tables in the back. Not heart healthy but sooo yum. The fried Oreos are a must. Yes really. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Comfortable? No. Jesus Christ. Good food, but insanely large portions.

    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

    Split the biscuit French toast. It is neither French nor toast, but it is both delicious and massive.

  • David J.

    Mushroom gravy chicken biscuit OR honey chicken biscuit are must-have's. Great service/ambiance.

    Brooklyn comes to the Upper West Side, via a detour through the American South. So hip it hurts, but there is a pickle for whatever ails you.

    the BLT Bloody Mary Rocks!

    J Nitzky · March 16, 2013

    Brunch is very well done. Sausage egg and cheese biscuit!

    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

    Chicken good. Pancakes good. Bacon good. Grits good. Home fries good. Throw them all together, sip on some beer and you may just get transported to food heaven.

    Can we all just agree the fried pickles would be so much better if they were SLICED before being dropped into the fryer?!
