    A sand floor, giant fish tanks, surfer memorabilia and big plastic tiki cups full of dangerous, tasty, libations. Next time you crave a zombie or a genuine OB vibe, go here. -Jacqueline Lombard, Top C

    They actually have a sand floor. No joke. And the entire place kind of smells like a mix of fish and beach in the best way possible.

    Lobster rolls are crack! It's a great spot if you want to be in the city and getaway from the city at the same time! Helps when u feel sand under ur feet as well!

    Cocktails are great: try tiki ones! Calamari are a good starter. Lobster roll is a must, with chicken shrimps tacos. Finally, the tiramisu to "assemble" is very curious and well made.

    The lemonade and mojitos are great! The atmosphere of this place is beyond amazing as well as the decoration! One of my favorite places in NYC.

    Surf bar fries were awesome, shoestring French fries with honey and sea salt. We ended up eating two batches.

    Fun decor and atmosphere! Order the surf fries. Awesome! Waiters are friendly but seem a little confused - sent us some extra orders a few times!

    Very nice bar in Brooklyn where sand is on the floor and is a getaway from the city! Cocktails look nice and their menu has a Hawaiian touch

    Probably not someplace you would want to frequently, but it's good for some kitsch every now and again. Try a piña colada and feel the sand between your toes.

    Great environment. The staff was very attentive and the place was was beautiful. The sand on the group was a nice touch, highly recommend it for a date

    Fun vibe to chill out with a good selection of frozen drinks for those hot summer days. The low rating is probably for the food.

    August 23rd: Pretend you’re in Malibu and hang ten at Brooklyn Surf Bar in Williamsburg. There’s even sand on the floor. Read more

    N-Sider favorite: Our must is the Surf Bar for their frozen Mojito's – slushee's for adults. They load 'em up with mint and are delicious.

    Floor actually is sand lol and the frozen Mojitos are better than the frozen margaritas!

    This place is FANTASTIC. Sit on the patio, the floor is sand and truly feels like a beach in the city.

    Frozen cocktails are awesome. I got the Mudslide which is basically like a huge icy coffee milkshake. Lovely.

    Cool atmosphere and the signature drinks are delicious. The food was unimpressive, the salsa is obvious shelf bought. The clam chowder was watery and greasy tasting.

    Honey fries rock. Bottom of the tray gets excessively sweet though, but that is to be expected 😋

    They don't honor the checkin special but the atmosphere is amazing. Sand on the wall, live music and kitch galore.

    There are worse things you can be doing than having a piña colada in a bar with a sand floor. What they are, I don't know

    When it's so hot outside you should seat on a surf bench, feet in the sand, drinking frozen margarita here!

    if you order the yuca fries, ask for aioli. the tomato sauce stuff that comes with it just doesn't do the job.

    Slightly gimmicky Hawaiian themed bar with sand underfoot, but reasonably priced drinks

    Outdoor patio, SAND FLOOR throughout entire venue and intoxicating tiki-drinks, need I say more?

    Good drinks and a sand-covered floor makes a solid spot for day drinking. But eat before you get here because the food is very overpriced.

    The best part is the sand inside. The food was overpriced. The drinks also bottom shelf liquor also overpriced. The waitress sucked. But the outside seating was nice for big groups. That's about it
