    Amazing Williamsburg dinner spot! Artichoke dip and shrimps in garlic & chili were exceptional. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful. Would definitely go back. Anytime.

    The cheeseburger was AMAZING! If fried calamari is on special, get it! It's the best my friends and I have ever had. Drinks are awesome too, especially the mojito. This was our fav stop in Brooklyn.

    Goat cheese and beet salad, with a dozen oysters, and the bar steak is in my top 3 favorite meals in Williamsburg. The mint julip is way good. The fig cocktail should be illegal.

    Great brunch place. Chill spot and friendly staff. Chicken Paillard salad is knockout. The hash and bacon sides are utterly superb if you're feeling naughty (Bacon as it should be: crispy).

    On a nice day, with the windows open, the front is great but the back is even better. I wasn't a fan of the French toast though, way too much sugar. Great spot, fun, hidden TV by the bar.

    Get the chicken & (pumpkin!) waffles or French dip served with a whole dunking bowl of au jus or better yet make someone go halfsies with you :)

    Great for brunch and dinner! Eggs Benedict for brunch 💯💯💯 the burger or fish for dinner. Get the fries and pigs in a blanket as well as the artichoke dip as starter

    The pumpkin pancakes with fried chicken, honey, and hot sauce are absurdly delicious. Savory and sweet, two for the price of one.

    The "porterhouse pork chop" here is fantastic (especially considering its huge size for only $22) -- maple-brined and served with beans & artichokes... this is a winner.

    Have a Spritz Aperol before dinner or with your brunch, it's the typical aperitivo drink in the Venice area. It is really well made and tastes exactly like the originaI talian one.

    Catfish was fantastic and will be dreaming of the black-eyed peas. Chicory salad was also excellent. Very friendly staff and cute atmosphere as well. Recommended.

    The eggs Benedict are 👌🏾. Revisited the 🍔 -pretty great flavor, do med-rare instead of med if on the fence. Awesome hash browns. 🐔 & waffles- 👍🏼 but chick was undercooked.

    An upgrade on American classics. You will not regret the French dip with a side of mashed potatoes. Definitely make reservations if you have a party of 6.

    Oysters are super-fresh, and the spicy garlic shrimp is tremendous-- has the consistency of lobster, and it arrives in a small heavy skillet with butter and garlic...

    I loved the updated spin on the chicken and waffles. The chicken was moist on the inside and had the perfect crispy crunch.

    Gourmet food doesn’t have to be a $15 Gruyère cheese burger. If you want a Manhattan menu without NY prices, look to Walter Foods, the new kid on Grand St. Laid-back vibes, slinging drinks til 2 am.

    Honestly, hold your fried chicken cravings for down the street...your better off with the delicious short rib burger. You know, after you've had a dozen fresh oysters or so.

    French dip is ok, it's better at marlow and sons... But the fried chicken with spicy honey is unbelievable. The short rib burger looks great too.

    Fine, but for the same price or less: Go around the corner (Lodge, St. Anselm, Miller's, Extra Fancy, etc.) for a better meal, less expensive, higher quality/sourced ingredients.
