    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.

    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.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 😋

    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.

    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

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