We happened into this restaurant after an art opening near by. It was a great place for a crowd with some looking to drink and some to eat (and a few did both). Really liked the Love Potion cocktail despite the name. It is a little awkward that they only take American Express (really?) but there was an ATM machine near by.

As many people do, we were exploring a neighborhood, and just "happened in"- This was our third time back. -More refined than some of the other restaurants, in terms of menu and overall interior space,. Welcoming feeling and very decent wait staff. .If you wear a citronella bracelet you can enjoy the garden area for dinner-very eclectic crowd. You can be comfortable ordering just a burger, appetizers, or a big main meal or even eating alone. The price point and portions are very fair

We ended here randomly, but stayed for a couple of glasses of wine and lunch. The mussels were good, and also the Sweetwater burger was nicely made. Standard prices. Slow service in the beginning, but the waitress we got when we sat down was doing a good job.

I usually travel around for my culinary experiences, but every once in a while you come across a place that is great every time you go, and as you get to know their menu and staff it gets better every time. When I'm finished, the bar is cozy, friendly and has a nice crowd. Not often I can spend the whole evening off at one place. Their backyard patio is another plus now that it is Spring!

Nice, cozy place for drinks at the wooden bar, with original moldings, tin ceiling, and booths to snuggle into. The food is pretty typical Brooklyn New American fare, nothing special, but done well enough.
