“Fried chicken a must at the Brooklyn Bowl”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

After reading a few food blogs and coincidently staying at the Wythe Hotel across the street, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to try the food at the Brooklyn Bowl. I will keep the instructions simple....if you are alone, order the fried chicken dinner. Two or more...order the fried chicken (enough pieces plus a few extra....you'll be glad you did) plus the amazing sides...mashed potatoes, collards with smoked bacon, mac and cheese....don't worry about the calories...you can bowl them off! We ate this meal twice (!) during our week long visit to Williamsburg....it was that good.

“Stellar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

The band was on point, the location was wonderful, the vintage feel made it stand out. I was told to order the fried chicken- being from the south, I thought it wouldn't stack up, but was pleasantly surprised by the best fried chicken I've ever had.

“Great Music Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Brooklyn Bowl is a fun, relaxed, and well-equipped music venue for relatively small shows. The availability of reasonable drinks and an extensive menu of high-quality food is an excellent perk of the space, and it makes it easy to make a night of it here. The nice staff, clean bathrooms, and fluid layout are great.

Easy to get to off of the L and easy to stay once you're there.
