Great food, not my scene

We came here for lunch by way of a big recommendation from a friend. It's not at all our scene. Loud music and hipsters abound. The food was killer though, and I would recommend it too. Our waiter was especially nice. I had the monte cristo, which was like lunch and dessert combined. My daughter... read more

The food is delicious and incredibly unique, I got the Parmageddon and it was fantastic! The waiters are all casually dressed and have a relaxed demeanor that reflected onto us, making us feel really comfortable and not rushed. The locations are each decorated differently and there's always something to look at on the walls!

Visited more than once! They started brunch and it was outstanding! The restaurant is in Red Hook with limited street parking but the garage next door (down the hill) usually has spots.

The place is nice but the wait is too long. Food was okay. I think that they need a bigger place and more staffs to cater costumers.

The concept is huge portions. But quantity isn't quality. We ate there again a month ago, after having stayed away for several years. The place has not changed. The sandwiches were enormous. The cheese in my 'grilled cheese' was still cold in the middle, even though I asked the waitress if she would have the kitchen "grill it well done... More

I found out about this restraunt through Man vs Food. We stopped here for lunch while we were in Cleveland. I really liked the concept but the portions are just to big for me.

I have heard a lot of wave reviews about this place and so we decided to give it a try. I'm not saying it's a bad place but it's just not for me. I love a good grilled cheese sandwich but they take it to another level. I order the kindergarten with bacon and tomato and mind you only a... More

I've had this place bookmarked since I saw it on Man v. Food. When one of my friends recommended it, it was just another sign that I needed to check this place out. The only thing is - it's not exactly in Cleveland. It's about a 20 minute drive out of the city, so if you have a car, that's... More
