Baltimore style succulent jumbo crab meat cooked to perfection and the bread(which you need to request) is the best in Georgia....The only issue is the acoustics; my mom had to sit outside(and it was hot) because she was feeling nauseated from all the noise near the bar. I was told they will be renuvating soon.

I absolutely love the service and food here. My boyfriend and I make it here almost every Saturday for lunch or dinner, not to mention the many many times he goes without me for lunch. I don't think I have ever tried anything on their menu that I haven't liked. The food always comes out fresh and delicious. I only... More

The food as always is incredible and we were not disappointed. However that's where it stops. We had a reservation, arrived early and requested a booth by the window. I understand a request is just that, a request. Unfortunately, we were seated at the second least desirable table in the restaurant. First, being the one located by the bathrooms, ours... More

Brooklyn Cafe is like a new model car as it gets better and better each year. The food is excellent and served with pride from the servers and owners. On a recent visit the special Panko Trout was exceptional.Every item we have sampled in the past year has been excellent. The crab cakes are at the top of our list... More

We went as a group and enjoyed the food, atmosphere and service. The short ribs and fish tacos were particularly good. We will return.

Found this place by accident while on business to the area. Menu was short but offered several great choices for lunch. I enjoyed the reuben sandwich & wife had the mahi tacos. Both very good. So good we met & interviewed a contractor for dinner several nights later. Four entrees, all very good - Sam's Lobster chops, grilled salmon, ribeye... More

First visit - outstanding! Great atmosphere, wonderful service! Marjore made our dining special and fun. We'd heard great reviews about the crab cakes, but had other ideas about our meals, so Marjore accommodated us with a single crab cake appetizer; score! We had the filet salad and the Creole chicken/sausage, both amazing! We're not often in this part of town... More

Brooklyn Cafe seems to improve with age. We go there frequently, but the last two visits were outstanding. First, they are known for their enormous vine ripe tomatoes that are served with almost every meal. If you like tomatoes, that is reason enough to visit. My two favorite dishes are the scallops when they have them, and the lump crab... More

I have passed the Brooklyn Cafe hundreds of times over the years and have never tried it. Today I had lunch there with a colleague and I am glad we did. The small place in the heart of Sandy Springs is located in a retail center across from what will one day be the new town center for Sandy Springs.... More

10+ years ago this place was so-so...never went back. Friends told us we needed to go back...Now have been twice in a month! Love the place, vibe, and of course, the food...and service!
