Overall good experience. Love the frickles, thick cut and great dill flavor. We had brisket and pulled pork. Slight spice, was good for me but not for all. The marble brisket was really moist and flavorful. Portions are a good size but price are standard...More

Great wings and pulled pork. We came for the all you can eat but didn’t have enough time so just ordered off the menu. The fries were awesome and plentiful

Exited Penn Station with a hungry family. Spotted Brother Jimmy's right across the road so headed in. Décor is distressed but quirky. Upstairs had good views of the streets, plenty going on outside! Three adults and two children had tasty meals, efficient friendly waitress service,...More

Stopped in for a quick dinner and had a great meal! The baby back ribs were cooked perfectly and the sauce is delicious! The salads were fresh and very good. The service was friendly and efficient. The brownie sundae is enormous!! It easily serves 3!

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York

I would call them directly. But it is a great place to have a party and they are close to the subway and MSG. I found it by accident and never regretted the experience. I hope you enjoy it.
