    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

    Hope you brought the beach ball and tanning oil, the backyard of Brooklyn Surf Bar will make you feel as if you've escaped to a sandy beach. Read more

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

    Great food, meh on the drinks. Sand is a pretty cool feature though!

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

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

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    The food is delicious and the drinks too. Very strong, which is awesome. Love the outdoor area too.

    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!

    Shredded RUBBER BANDS in my frozen Mojito. Management doesn't want to be bother. NO customer Service! Won't come back!

    Great place but definitely NOT A TIKI BAR. Don't expect a proper Mai Tai.

    Love this place!! Feels like Cali was brought to New York! The vibe is great, and caipirinha delicious !

    Don't actually surf on the bar. They don't like it when you do that. Also the fish tanks are not for swimming in...

    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.

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

    I fell in love with this place the minute I walked it. I love the environment and the theme of the place, and the food was awesome! I definitely recommend this place!

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

    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!

    Cute decor, lots of promise but didn't deliver. Overpriced and no substitutions!

    Do NOT get the fried whole fish. It sounds tasty, and it is, but It's impossible to eat (and expensive).

    So much fun. Sand in the city. It was great. The blended drinks were yummy too!

    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.

    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.

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

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

    Do not order the Zombie. There is a reason they only let you order two.

    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.

    If you squint your eyes hard enough and bury your feet in the sand you might think you're not in New York anymore

    Cool place, I love the atmosphere in the back outside. But the service is soooo unbelievably slow. Sucks. :(

    Sand on the floor gives it that laid back vibe! Only Downer they don't serve Guinness!

    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

    Try the shrimp Tacos, they are very tasty. Goes well with the Blue Point IPA.

    What's up,Surf Bar? Worst burger....EVER. Worst service...EVER. I'd been here before and loved it, but after last night, probably won't return.

    WORST SERVICE..... EVER. Avoid at all costs. 90 minutes after ordering BURGERS and a Lobster rollr they brought the roll. No burgers, the manager didn't even put our order in! Drinks took forever, we
