This review is for brunch
This review is for brunch only. This is a solid brunch spot in an otherwise sort of bland area for restaurants. We came at 11am on a Saturday so it was very empty and quiet while they were just opening. Aside from the emptiness I liked the decor and then ambiance here. The food was pretty good, nothing to write home about but again, a good choice above most other options around here. I had the smoked salmon and scallion scramble and it was a little bland but no complaints. My friends had the "messy breakfast sandwich" which they really liked.

This restaurant continues to be a great addition to the neighborhood. Vegan options seems to be dwindling but what's there is still great.

Went out of their way to accomodate me and my guest list.

Good brunch in a casual setting
We enjoyed meeting friends there for a casual brunch. The food was good, the service was very good and the Bloody Marys were excellent

Very good brunch
We had brunch here with 5 people. The food is very good, though the selection may be a little smaller than other brunches in town. The egg and spinach sandwich on English muffin and the vanilla Frech Toast were standouts. The chickpea/eggplant burger was also very good. They have a sriracha Bloody Mary that is the best Bloody Mary we've ever had (we had it virgin). We'd have liked to see breakfast meats on the menu (including non-pork choices). The only meat is prosciutto. Some sides, like hot cereals, grits, hash browns, would also be nice.
Ambiance is pub-like, with some interesting pictures on the walls. Music is fabulous--old Motown, soul and beach music, but set too loud for completely comfortable conversation.
Service was atten

Good bar food
Came here for a weeknight dinner with a friend. They ran out of my favorite beer which is silly for a bar, but the waitress was nice and the burgers were delicious. Big bar scene.

Bravo to Brinkley's for lunch
Fine, Bloomingdale's adjacent new Anerican restaurant. Casual environment with high ceilings and oversized stylish Palladian window. Great salads and simple sandwiches. Fresh ingredients nicely composed.

Food Good but Noisy
More of a bar than anything. Food casual like burger and fries but pretty good.

The food was fine, not great (very plain). The coffee was ok, not good (not hot). The waitress was acceptable. We were having a great time and after about an hour they asked us to move/leave so another, bigger party could sit. Poor planning on their part since there were plenty of places to put us or them. We felt rushed and had to leave.

Go To Place
Brinkley's Station is my go-to place. I can take friends and clients alike and be sure that I will ALWAYS get great food and service. As a vegan with many friends who are not, Brinkley's keeps everyone happy!

This was a fun change from
This was a fun change from what you normally find in the Bloomies area. It is a pub scene that has great options including vegetarian fare that is not bland. We were a mixture of kids and foodie Adults-everyone was content. Perfect for a rainy shopping day.
