Overpriced and overcrowded so far this 2019 summer. Massive speakers, loud club music, bouncers, bit of a party scene even on a Wednesday evening. $9 beers and $12 wines. This won’t be our first choice anymore for Brooklyn happy hour with water views.

Kool water front spot over looking manhattan, great view. But the drinks are a little overpriced for a beer garden type and the bathroom line sucks.

Brooklyn Barge offers a wonderful view of the Manhattan skyline. Ordering food (especially reviving a receipt) is a little cumbersome. Otherwise, great spot.

The service is very bad, you have to order with the phone on a website that doesn’t work properly and you have to give all your information. Food and drinks are low quality and overpriced. The only good thing is the view. Once you order...More

The view is great and it’s a really cool idea, but it’s NY and a lot of places are cool with good views. The guy that made my drink complained that he hated the place, it was a curse word and that he wasn’t a...More

My friends and I were out for the day celebrating a 60th birthday. We took ferry from NYC to Greenpoint. Walked over to the Brooklyn Barge. It was a hot day....wish the way in was a bit more clearly marked. We found a table, ordered...More

Its location is not good.. unless you are a Greenpoint resident! Anyway, the place offers an amazing view of the Manhattan skyline. I really liked it. The prices are a bit high, but I guess they are due to the location and the view. The...More

Very nice bar in the heart of Green Point. It is on a floating platform therefore don’t go there if you suffer from sea sickness (and if you drank too much) :) wide beer and cocktail selection, although prices are quite high.
