    See if you can spot historical images from the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Our favorite is of the USS Vermont, the Yard's receiving ship after the Civil War. It looks like a giant floating apartment building.

    It’s hard to believe that this obscure South Slope bar serves one of the best patties in town. The tidy, wallet-friendly standout features a disc of meat smashed and griddled Steak n Shake–style. (CP) Read more

    This loosely nautical-themed bar serves hand-cut plain, salted fries and cheese fries. The cheese version could more accurately be called cheese-product fries. Read more

    This place offers up a sea-themed vibe, and we hear a garden is coming soon. When asked, our photographer simply told us: CLAM ROLL. So, get the clam roll. Pro tip: If you want a fork, bring your own.

    The fried pickles are amazing. The bartenders mix really good cocktails (though don't be a pain and order something complicated when it's packed). They play awesome music late. Burger is solid.

    “The music (Gang Starr, the New York Dolls, Van Halen) and the drinks (topnotch cocktails; twenty beers on tap) are savory enough to keep you floating around for a while.” Read more

    love this place... except couple of bartenders. Whatever planet they live on, they need to come back to Earth. Just say something like thank you or how what would you like to drink.

    Sunny Saturdays are the perfect time to sit in the back and enjoy a Bloody Mary, plus Becca's an awesome bartender. Not only does she make good drinks, she's cute too!

    This place is so unique and outstanding that I don't know what to say. Imagine a haunted version of The Little Mermaid, with matching soundtrack, and...A tiki bar. Outstanding.

    It's fun to go for brunch when they just open. It's pretty quiet then. The eggs and egg sandwich are great for brunch. The burger is good and the shishito peppers are a great side to any meal.

    The bar of my dreams. Sea witch ambience with 25 ft. tropical fish tank, and outdoor garden and sensational clam rolls and fried oysters.

    The cheeseburger patty is phenomenal. Its on the smaller side but considering the light price, its still a great deal.

    Great place, except for the red-bearded jerk behind the bar who basically told us to quiet down because we were "the loudest ones in the bar". DUDE IT'S A BAR, NOT A LIBRARY. We immediately left.

    Kinda crappy. The prices seem low, but it's all low quality (except the fish tacos, those were pretty good). They also kicked us out of the backyard before 11 PM. Not one of my faves,
