The inside dining area was overcrowded, hot, and waaaay too noisy! Luckily we were able to move outside, for a much better experience. Beer & Burger, both were good and got us ready for our show at Barclay's!

My bartender friend comes here after her shift is over. Drinks must be good, right? They are not just good, but amazing. Excellent Bartender Matt is an amazing muddler and shaker hence drinks like spicy strawberry martini are sooo fruity, juicy, flavorful and just orgasmic!...More

We come here fairly regularly, mainly for brunch. Comfortable pub ambience, perfect portions, hearty meals with fresh ingredients, and truly delicious Bloody Marys (one of our favorite spots for these). Everything made with care. Corned beef is shredded. Salads dressed nicely, just right. Eggs poached...More

Slam Dunk for this pub/bar/restaurant. Great white bean & barley soup, fish and chips, really good with house made tartar sauce. Good choice. Try the Saratoga lager on tap.

Not far from the Barclays Center. Very cozy atmosphere. Very attentive staff. They start serving alcohol at 9 a.m., along with food. So it's a great place to get a breakfast sandwich -- or in our case the Toad in the Hole (don't let the...More

Alchemy Restaurant & Tavern is a friendly neighborhood pub in Brooklyn serving delicious new American cuisine, local draft beers, and crafted cocktails. Come to us for a low-key dinner and casual hang out with dishes like our Gorgonzola walnut ravioli, the house made veggie burger, or our classic Alchemy fish and chips. We offer a weekend brunch with entrees created using organic eggs from Lancaster County and organic fair trade coffee from Counter Culture Coffee. Try our eggs Benedict, the huevos rancheros, or our famous chorizo eggs with jalapeno grits. Our cozy restaurant has indoor dining with TVs by the bar and a large projector screen for special events. We also have a private back patio for you to enjoy those gorgeous Brooklyn days and nights with a group of friends, family, or your special someone. Your complete satisfaction is our top priority here at Alchemy. The dark wood, refurbished antique bar, exposed brick, & friendly service combine to create a welcome atmosphere where you can enjoy anything from a relaxed pint to a four course meal.
