    The food is pickle-centric-- with a big selection from the Brooklyn Brine factory right around the corner. Try the extra-hot "Fire Scapes" and five-spice ramps. Read more

    The ricotta sandwich had “the right ratio of bread (Runner & Stone sesame seed) to filling, and the vegetables successfully stood up to the oozing and abundant ricotta.” Read more

    Their house-made shack veggie burger is complied from grilled vegetables and mushrooms, and comes with bread and butter pickles, aioli, and ketchup on a potato roll. Read more

    Low-key but well-stocked craft-brew bar adds a small menu of meatless sandwiches, salads, and snacks, as culinarily inventive as a smoked-tofu bánh mì adorned with house-fermented kimchee and avocado.

    Vegetarian here: One of my favorite spots in Brooklyn. Love the great beers, pickles, incredible sandwiches, kimchi, pies, everything else. Entire menu is vegetarian, and I'd recommend any of it.

    Pickles and beer, together at last! This collaboration between Brooklyn Brine and Dogfish Head pairs great vegetarian food with a rotating selection of brews from the beloved Delaware brewery.

    The waitress said they make the veggie burger by cooking down a mixture of mushrooms, beets, and other vegetables, canning the mix, steaming it, then slicing it into patties. Holy shit it was amazing.

    Amazing tofu bahn mi and grilled cheese (cashew cream is delicious for those avoiding dairy). Nice outdoor space. One of the best beer menus I've seen. Great spot.

    Simple vegetarian menu, but good vegetarian - no fake meats & cheeses.. The beer list (both on draft and in bottles) makes up for the lack of meat. Nice garden out back when it's warm!

    Village Voice is proud to welcome The Pickle Shack to the 2014 Choice Eats food fest! Fried pickles with aioli is as mouthwatering as it looks and sounds.

    The grilled cheese and veggie burger are delicious - both best in the 'hood. The fries may be some of the best in the city.

    Those fried oyster mushrooms and the tofu banh mi are my favorites, don't miss out on dill pickle french fries either.

    Small but great menu (as others have said) and mighty beer selection. But the acoustics here are off - this spot is loud. Be wary if you want a conversation

    Cornmeal fried oyster mushrooms provide just enough crunch for your (satisfying) munch.

    Must for beer fans. DFH exclusives. Also for the fried pickles & the cheese plate as sandwich (get it with fries).

    Bucket deal is the move, 3 cans/bottles of beer for $10, bartender's choice. Sourdough Grilled Cheese is fantastic.

    The sandwiches are amazing, but there were only four drafts available the night we were there. They definitely need more taps!

    Although we were very much looking forward to the food, it was not worth waiting around being treated like we didn't matter. Terrible, rude service. We walked out.
