    This place transports you to England. For brunch, the eggs Benedict on crumpets with avocado was super satisfying. We didn't go for it, but the pitcher of Pimms was very tempting.

    Here Mac n' cheese works best when it's filled with all sort of culinary non sequiturs. Add sun dried tomatoes or jalapeños for $2, bacon for $3, fresh lobster meat for $7. Unadorned mac is $10. Read more

    The burgers are great and the sweet potato fries and regular fries amazing 🙌 don't even let me talk about the Mac and cheese with lobsters. Great service, they made any drinks we asked for.

    This is your Brooklyn go-to for all things Tottenham Hotspur. It's good to be in a lively and friendly environment while Spurs are crushing your hopes and dreams.

    This spot is particularly adept at furnishing their already perfectly suitable mac n' cheese with tasty extras like sun dried tomatoes, jalapeños, fresh lobster meat, bacon, etc. Read more

    Grilled Portobello sandwich with goat cheese and carmelized onions is the best I've had. The Swan Toddy is one of several warm drinks that is perfect on a chilly day

    One of the best Bloody Mary's I have had in the city. Anything topped with a slice of bacon is an A+ in my book.

    Great spot in bedstuy. Solid beer and shot choices and various other specials. Food is good but if you want to save a buck you can always pop next door for a bucket and wash it down with a drink.

    Have the chicken'n'waffles. The chicken is greasy (in a good way), with crispy waffles And whipped butter, and syrup on the side. Works brilliantly. Add a bit of salt, to compliment the sweetness.

    Amazing food. $12 unlimited prosecco from 6-8pm everyday (EDIT: Server told me it was everyday; apparently it's Wednesdays...). They're good about refilling too. Definitely the best spot in the hood.

    Legitimately one of my favorite restaurants ever. Great food/menu, awesome beer selection, perfect Bloody Mary (with great garnishes). Every time I'm in Brooklyn at all I have to come here.

    Great place...delicious food, nice atmosphere and very kid friendly. The burger was delicious and the kids French toast was more adult in style and yuuuumy.. I'll definitely be back.

    Mac and cheese (def add bacon) is beyond, and rich enough for two. Also very worth it: hand crafted winter cocktails. Watch out for the bro-y bar crowd and really mediocre service, though.

    This is a damn near perfect pub. The weeknight mussels & fries special is crazy, but can't go wrong with the Camden.

    My salad was awesome except the dish was heavy on the cheese. I found the waiter to not be as nice to me as I would have liked but I was too hungry to allow him to ruin my experience. Good Food

    The burger is too big to eat without having it fall apart in your hands, but that's because you have the option of adding almost any number of toppings for not much extra money. Yummy mac and cheese!

    The front bar is dark, but behind it is a large seating area with a skylight. Tasty brunch and super friendly service. Bloody Marys come with bacon AND shrimp!

    Gluten free beer (New Planet), Angry Orchard Cider on draft & 2 other bottled ciders to choose from. No gf menu, but you can modify easily. I'll definitely be back.

    If Gnocchi is on special, you must. Bees knees cocktail is a fave. Good vibes for movers and shakers. Nice low lighting and airy open space in back.

    They have an impressive selection of beer. You can get a whiskey and beer combo for $7! Did I mention you can get a scotch, bourbon, rum or tequila flight? Major plus!

    The food is great, I had the black swan burger. The service is the only problem I had, my waiter was MIA most of the time and different servers had to help pick up his slack.

    Burgers were OK. Pre fixed prices for weekends before 4. Then kitchens closed till 6. The wings looked like they get so much love @prep. They're bound to be amazing. Great beers and great HH deals.

    They have hidden specials on dinner menu, so ask if they don't tell you. I had 6-hour smoked ribs paired with a mescal cocktail that laid me out.

    Came back to taste the burger again and was hoping the first time was just a mishap. Same deal the 2nd time around. But I must say the jerk wings are real and delicious. Real meaning good meat :)

    Mac n cheese, add sundried tomatoes. Great place for a date or to take your parents. Narrow bar in front. Big tables in the back.

    9oz burguer with goat cheese, fried egg & sweet potatoes. You will be counting calories for a week but won't regret at all.

    Big fan of the burger with cheddar and bacon medium rare! On extra special days get it with an egg on tip for extra indulgence!

    Excellent for brunch and late-night boozy snacks that are actually tasty. Hate the term "gastropub" term all you want, it's accurate.

    Thai sweet and spicy wings are delicious. Doesn't come with blue cheese however; it's extra. Try the deep fried mars bar

    Get the burger or the Thai wings. The plain Mac is good bypass the lobster add-on it's horrible. Drinks are good, owner is super friendly.

    The mac n cheese, cornbread, and chocolate cake are all excellent, and the vibe is great (but the collard greens are a total miss)!
