Description: Cal Elliott's Rye is at heart a classic neighborhood restaurant. Rye's casual elegance offers something excellent for everyone, from an intimate dining experience to a festive group feast. Rye embodies Brooklyn's living and breathing history - a poignant example of how both past and present continue to coexist harmoniously on Williamsburg's south side. Rye, free from outside investors, remains true to the DIY spirit and history of the Brooklyn neighborhood in which it resides.

$5 burgers. $3 beers. $5 cocktails. Their dinner is good too - meatloaf, ribs, mac& cheese. New twists in our traditional comfort food that's welcoming.

My in-laws were in from Florida for the weekend, and we decided to take an expedition to Brooklyn for the day. Rye was our choice for brunch / lunch via Yelp.com and we were ver pleased with our decision. Fresh squeezed pink grapefruit juice, challah French toast, their special meatloaf sandwich and other goodies delighted us. Service was good, not great, we had to wave down our server a few times. Definitely worth the trip, we will come back for sure.

Loved the atmosphere -- kind of dark, very welcoming. Loved the food -- filling but not too heavy, yummy, delicious, satisfying flavors. The Scotch Egg may have stopped my heart in both good and bad ways, but it was definitely worth it.

This is my new favorite place to eat in Williamsburg. The bar is beautiful. It looks like it was transported from 19th century Ireland. And everything we ordered (4 people) was delicious. Try the scotch egg!

Rye is a little out of the way in Brooklyn. But Brooklyn is not the Brooklyn of legend now it's the place of hipsters, good food, and gentrification. There are still some rough edges, but Rye is a cultured hot spot with amazing meatloaf and good drinks. Hopefully you'll get a bartender like James who was there when we were there. This handsome fellow is a funny charming actor who entertained us with his stories of growing up on the mean streets of Poughkeepsie. The drinks were as delicious as his exploits. If it's happy hour get the burger it's a great deal also the Brussel sprouts are some of the best I've ever had. So go to Rye and enjoy.
