Mother's Day Brunch

Just celebrated Mother's Day with my extended family for brunch. Prix fix was reasonable ($25) and the menu offered a variety of appetizers and main courses of breakfast and lunch items. Great Bloody Mary too!

I think this place might be good for drinks and a burger. It always seems busy. We came for brunch. This was our first visit. The staff is attentive but it is not worth a second trip for us. I am in the food industry and travel a lot so maybe I am spoiled. The food was not that good,... More

Mother's Day disaster! The front of the house had NO CLUE what the back of the house was preparing for a PRE-FIXED menu. TWICE we had to change our orders, after an hour of being seated, because the original pre-fix menu was not correct. Basically were left with burgers for Mother's Day. Wait staff needs more training or needs to... More

Went here for brunch, and ordered the brunch that came with drinks. For $30 you get an appetizer, entree, and all the mimosas, Bloody Mary's, Dosequi, or Sangrias you can drink while you eat. The food, drinks, and service were excellent, and the atmosphere was very nice. I will be going back.

Great outside seating and the bar has view seats too. Great for people watching. The bartenders are friendly and the locals are too. The food is good enough to keep you coming back.

A tip: try to get there BETWEEN Lunch & Dinner, when the noise level is bearable ! We were only there for drinks, but thoroughly enjoyed the French onion soup, the mussels appetizer (good broth !), the squash salad & the wine. The service was good, the ambience is quite nice, the location is perfect -- only a 2-block walk... More

Cute gem in Hoboken. Limited seating downstairs but another room upstairs. Good cocktail menu. Food was delicious. Service a bit on the slow side for a Thursday night both at bar and table. Worth it for a memorable evening.

Food here is pretty good... Could be better for the price. I like coming here to escape the normal crazy crowd of hoboken. Its nice to come here for their happy hours for the cheaper wines and beers. Cocktails are expensive here though. Fun place overall.

I've eaten at Brass Rail a hand-full of times and never have been disappointed. It's a nice environment where you won't feel rushed and can enjoy your meal and some drinks.
