    Many thumbs up for the cocktails. Also, I love any bar that serves bacon mac and cheese, but this one is particularly yummy. I saw they have pickle backs and a pickle cocktail that I want to try!

    Nothing beats the breakfast burger with deep fried pickles and a Bloody Mary. Belly will be happy.

    Loved the Mac & Cheese. Made with scallions, new york state cheddar, muenster & gruyere. Get the Double Smoked Brooklyn Bacon on it.

    Very good vibe for a bar. Some very good craft beers. Food is hit or miss.

    Great atmosphere but in order to pay with a CC you have to put a minimum charge of $20 which is really annoying

    Try the lavender cocktail!

    There's not much space here, but what's offered up is a lovely stone-walled cloister complete with wreaths and hanging plants, a perfect spot for imbibing cocktails.

    This popular Astoria spot gets crowded as hell on weekend evenings, so it's quite fortuitous that the outdoor garden provides a respite from all the loud-talkers boozing inside. Read more

    Very Williamsburg. Happy Hour $4 drafts. Sweet Afton Breakfast Burger (Pat Lafreida beef, fried egg, & bib lettuce) during brunch (until 6:30pm) is delicious. Mac & Cheese and Fried Pickles are tasty.

    I actually don't like the fried pickles! They are in a thick batter and are NOT crispy!

    the burger is great. it's even better during brunch when it's served with an egg on top. excellent fried pickles too.

    I love weekend brunch and afternoon drinks. Mike makes the best cocktails in the Burroughs, and the breakfast burger of chicken and biscuit can't be beat.

    Sean Wilkins · August 17, 2014
  • David B.

    Delicious pickle martinis and fried pickles - usually with a bluegrass band on Mondays. One of the best bars in Astoria.
