    First time here? Get the fried chicken. Second time? The sausage biscuit egg and cheese with a side of pickles. Go early to avoid the crowds or be prepared to get a cocktail and wait for a table.

    Came here on a Sunday for brunch (more than 1hr to get a table!) but the wait was so worth it. Super crowded, but the food is good and the cocktails are great. Loved the Rosemary vodka lemonade. Yum.

    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!

    chicken and pancakes! what a combo. Jacob's is an amazing value in terms of the calories you get for your dollar; make sure you get the biscuits, and be prepared for a wait beforehand

    I've tried a lot of stuff here and it's all great. I love the ham egg & cheese on a biscuit, the BBQ jack sandwich, and the jam jar. Always expect a wait here! 🍗🍳🍓

    The honey chicken and pickles biscuit sandwich is fantastic - swap out grits for fries if you want. Challenge yourself to actually eat it like a sandwich, but have tons of napkins on standby.

    The food here is fantastic! The shredded pickles with the chicken are just an irresistible combination (even though it sounds weird). The collard greens are good too -- not too vinegary.

    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

    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 biscuit bread pudding is so warm and soft and balances perfectly with the ice cream. Bonus: Jacob’s also has the best fried chicken and biscuits in Manhattan! Read more

    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.

    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.

    Weekends are packed, get here when they open at 9am to ensure a table. Otherwise, they will text you when your table is ready so grab a brew next door at E's bar - reasonable prices for craft beer.

    Chicken bacon egg & cheese on a biscuit is the best choice for brunch or dinner. Start with a rosemary vodka lemonade and a pickle sampler. The mac & cheese is amazing, but leaves you feeling guilty.

    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.

    One of the best meals that I have had in awhile. Get the pickles appetizer, try the shrimp & grits (phenomenal), fried chicken smothered with sausage gravy - off the chain. Be prepared for sodium hi!

    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

    I normally try their specials of the day, because they're always great. But the sausage gravy smothered buttermilk fried chicken biscuit is so much comfort in one sitting

    Best meal in NYC so far. Sausage gravy buttermilk fried chicken biscuit is like a hug in your mouth. Grits are just okay. All endorsed by a true Southerner.

    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.

    This is a fabulous place for brunch - delicious biscuit sandwiches with locally produced eggs, cheese and ham make for the perfect meal! It doesn't stop there - they also have killer bloody mary's!

    The $16 pickle sampler is absolutely enormous, good for the whole table. You can't go wrong with the pickled green beans or the loaded Bloody Mary.

    Great fresh cocktails & liquor selection, open late. Friday late nights fun & not too packed. All the southern influenced dishes are best, and the seafood good quality too. Biscuits are a must-try.

    So good! Pickled tomatoes, biscuits and fixins, and deviled eggs were perfect. Shrimp and bacon and grits was salty enough but could have been saltier, especially when paired with the blt Bloody Mary.

    I love this place. Appetizers are amazing (Get the biscuits and fixins!) Drink selection is fantastic. The porch sipper is good for anyone who likes whiske. Definitely an uws staple for me.

    I gave it another shot & had the fried chicken biscuit in mushroom gravy & it was delicious! I couldn't sub the cheese grits for mac & cheese so we shared it- it was a huge order plus creamy & cheesy.

    If it's your first time make sure you get a biscuit! For a lighter menu option try the fish tacos - super flavorful and filling without feeling heavy.

    Worth the wait and the tight squeeze in there. Make sure to have the cheese grits. Most amazing part of the meal. Chicken and waffles for brunch or southern blt are really good options.

    Was expecting a small sandwich when I ordered the Sausage Gravy Smothered Chicken Biscuit. I was shocked when this huge portion with cheese grits came out! So yummy and saved the rest for breakfast!

    A pleasant surprise. Jacob's Pickles has some of the best Soul Food in New York City. The servings are enough for 2. Pick your favorite and go for it!
  • Elizabeth I.
    The biscuits and fixins is worth making room for but it's a healthy portion so consider sharing with the group. Start and end with the maple butter!!

    To know: The beef is from the butcher in Astoria that owner Jacob Hadjigeorgis used to visit as a child. His family has been using the same butcher for decades. Read more

    Pancakes and chicken is really good as well as the mac and cheese ! The portions are huge, make sure you are hungry before coming or ask for a doggy bag to enjoy the deliciousness at home !

    This restaurant serves up delicious comfort food from all over in an environment that makes you want to linger. Think reclaimed barn wood, endless craft beer, pickled everything and cheesy grits.

    bloody Mary's and dill pickles! The bacon was delicious and it was a really cool space. Wish we hadn't had dinner planned 4 after, or we'dve enjoy the full menu.

    Standout brunch items include the biscuit pancakes & buttermilk fried chicken combo, the equally decadent biscuits, gravy & fried eggs plate, and the biscuits french toast. Do not attempt on a diet. Read more

    My favorite restaurant in the city! I have never gotten anything here that I haven't loved. Make sure to get some pickles, dilly beans, candied beets, and something with biscuits (or a side order).

    This place is hip and young with great music in the background. The french toast, and especially chocolate banana french toast is to die for. Black eye peas are amazing on the side!

    Amazing chicken sandwiches for brunch. There will still be a wait, but go late to avoid the insane rush. Really good beer selection, too. Pickles are healthy portions, so be ready.

    The sausage gravy chicken and biscuits is amazing! The cheesy grits will also make you wonder why you could ever avoid grits. The service was also amazing. Will definitely be back!!

    A hungover friend took me here for brunch, assuring me a zero calorie meal. Ha, funny! She assures me the fried chicken biscuits are best hangover cure ever, and still damn tasty without one.

    Biscuits, chicken, beer - everything is great and portions are huge. Hugely popular at brunch. A chicken biscuit is a must. Be sure to ask about the specials if they don't mention.
