“Staten Island Restaurant”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

This was a nice sit-down family style restaurant on a small budget. Plenty to choose from and it had draft specials

“Staten Island Ferry-Accessible”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

My sister and I took the Staten Island Ferry (I was visiting from California) and upon landing, wanted to get a bite to eat. Because it was New Year's Day, most places accessible by foot from the ferry were closed. We ventured into Karl's Klipper not knowing what to expect, but figuring we couldn't be choosy. We were pleasantly surprised. We shared an Asian chicken salad (copious) and a pastrami sandwich, had more than plenty to eat, and were served by an obviously overwhelmed staff person. She was great--another employee had called in sick, so she was doing triple-duty as bartender, hostess, and server. In spite of all that, she was good-humored and attentive. What could've been a merely life-supporting meal turned out to be a very enjoyable experience. I would recommend this place as a ferry-friendly destination.

“Close to the ferry service”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

St. George's district--We were there on a Friday night, it was noisy at the bar side, at 7:30 pm, but after 8:00 things settled down, when many people left to go to the local theatre. Our meals were very tasty, with plenty of food served. Our waitress was always checking back with us, especially when she thought she was giving slow service, and she kept apologizing (no problem for us), as she was overly busy with a table of 15, who arrived without a reservation (shame!!), and she felt overwhelmed that she couldn't keep-up with her other tables, of smaller groups. She felt so bad, she gave my husband a free beer, which he never expected, as he felt the service was acceptable. Everything worked out perfectly. She was a real trooper>Maggie. Prices were reasonable! We were staying nearby (holidaying), and it would be handy for someone having a meal here, then just a very short walk to the ferry, over to Manhatten.
