A word from Seersucker
Called "small, but brilliant" by Time Magazine and one of Brooklyn's best restaurants by GQ, Seersucker is a 32-seat neighborhood spot inspired by the food and hospitality of the South. According to The New York Times, "It’s urbane, soft spoken and modern, the kind of place where actual residents of Chapel Hill, Nashville or Birmingham might go on a Saturday night."

Chef/owner Robert Newton, who hails from Arkansas, has crafted a cuisine inspired equally by his childhood favorites and the Carroll Street greenmarket across the street. He relies upon small farms and indie purveyors for many of his ingredients, so the menu changes frequently based upon what's available and in season. Seersucker's beer, wine and spirits list is all American, and the coffee comes from Counter Culture of Durham, North Carolina.

Diner Reviews
  • "Brought two kids for brunch; food was quick and very tasty and service was attentive."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "The one vegetarian dish at our recent brunch was unassumingly outstanding. Given the creativity exhibited, we just wish another meatless option or two would be incorporated into the daily fare."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Menu is great. Service is awesome. Fried chicken is amazing. Good people good restaurant."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Seersucker is one of my favorite brunch places! Food options are simple and always spot on. Great selection for both breakfast (mostly eggs) and lunch lovers alike! Family friendly, although no separate kids menu that I know of. Service is one of the best around - always friendly, courteous and generous. Would happily come here every weekend if able to!"

  • "I dined at Seersucker with a couple of friends on a Wednesday evening. Despite the midweek night, the atmosphere was still energetic. The staff and service were the epitome of friendliness and attention to detail. The complimentary mini buttermilk biscuits melted in my mouth and were served with molasses apple butter and an apricot spread. For my main course, I had the black-eyed peas falafel with hen of the woods mushrooms. Delicious! I would love to come back and try more of the menu. I'd also like to try Nightingale9, Robert Newton's vietnamese restaurant down the road from Seersucker."

  • "Fried chicken was perhaps the best I've ever had. Oysters also good. Dumpling appetizer not a good value. Grits divine."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Loved the offerings, but my first brunch choice (toasted wheat berries, pecans and poached egg) was no longer available at 1:30pm. Lively scene included families. Nice, but too loud for intimate conversation."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Good food but only 3stars as portions of duck and fish, and also of cornbread way too small for the price."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "We went for the special Burmese Menu as part of Seersucker's Monday night series. Everything about the evening was phenomenal- service was attentive and thoughtful, and the food was inventive and as good or better than much of what I ate in Burma when I was there last year. All that for $40 -- one of the best deals in town!"
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "Glad we made reservations...there were 5 of us for 7:30 on a Saturday evening. Small restaurant, but the staff handled our very enthusiastic group very well...even when ordering extra apps mid-stream. Attentive but not pesty. The food was awesome - we loved the mini starter biscuits with the salted molasses. If you have to wait as a walk-in, the bar is great, but would not do a walk in for more than 2..not much space to wait. The pork confit special was perfect - melting texture without being greasy, The tator tots that come with the duck breast were fab!"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "So Seersucker was great. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful. I do think the portions are slightly small given the prices, but the food itself is very good. The fried chicken lives up to its reputation. I do think for such a nice, fancy restaurant the décor could be a bit more luxurious. They have school chair seating and hard wooden benches. I think that some cushion top or pillows are in order. I think they're going for a stark look, but they shouldn't do so at the expense of the diner's comfort. However, given that (and my bad back), I would still return."

  • "Small, typical Brooklyn joint, but also pretty high quality. My soft boiled eggs were a tad overcooked, but other than that everything else was delicious and pleasant. We took the subway all the way from midtown to do brunch and walk around Brooklyn and didn't regret it. Our brunch was the perfect start to the day. The owner was in attendance, ensuring the machine ran smoothly, and it did."

  • "We went for a Mama get together. The food was amazing. And the are so accommodating !!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I went to Seersucker for a special prix fixe to benefit the local school gardens down the street and was not disappointed. I could eat that fried chicken every day of my life, it's that good. The rice pudding with some sort of toffee caramel was outstanding. My favorite thing always is their mini biscuits with molasses butter!!!"

  • "went for dinner with friends - had great food and good service. particularly loved the biscuits and the entree. the manager, jamie, was super helpful with our reservation, and the staff was so nice and accommodating throughout the evening."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "Had a lovely dinner with a guest from out of town. It was a perfect spot as we were able to make a res in advance (although we did end up waiting a half hour for our table). The table allowed for private conversation meaning that even tho the restaurant was busy we could easily hear each other. I would recommend it to others especially in the neighborhood. Food was yummy."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "This is a great place to take guests, which is exactly what I did. She got the Brooklyn feel and was impressed by everything. I had the hominy hash and it was to die for. I will go to Seersucker often for as long as I live in BK."

  • "Recently went to a group brunch at Seerksucker. The Southern inspired fare was divine. From the perfectly tender and flaky buttermilk biscuits to the done-to-perfection fried chicken and a cocktail list that's charmingly unique yet familiar rather than overly pretentious--the food at Seersucker didn't miss a beat. The wait staff was attentive, prompt and knowledgeable and did not leave me feeling rushed. My only gripe would be the tight space. We had to wait a few moments to be seated and there's not much room for lingering, so I constantly in someone's way. That said, we weren't left standing long, and I will go back again in a heartbeat."

  • "The ambiance was great. The waitress was great. The food was spectacular and the price was right. I would go back again."

    Dined on 1/12/2014
  • "Not as impressive as our first visit in Sept. 2012. The food is unique. Good not great. The pork chop special was ordinary."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "The food is great. Simple but tasty. Why confuse your taste buds when you can just make 'em real real happy."

  • "menu changes often and provides really interesting choices for specials. I just tried the sunchoke appetizer which was amazing!"
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "I always enjoy my time at Seersucker and brought three friends there for the first time who loved it. The service was quick, but almost too quick - I felt the check came a little to fast after our brunch. Nonetheless, this place is fantastic."
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "Totally disappointed. We all had apps and mains and left hungry. The dishes were all very bland except for the vegetable salad. Won't go back anytime soon!"
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "A friend recommended and so we went last Friday. Food was terrific Not a single weak dish. This is southern food taken to another level Well worth the trip !"

    Dined on 12/8/2013
  • "We really loved the brunch at Seersucker!! Three of us had the egg croissant, mixed salad, coffee, and bloody Mary, and good cold water. Great service too! They were helpful in letting me change my reservation at the last minute. They are also good with food allergies as I am allergic to milk/soy and mustard to name a few allergies. Biscuits with little jams, potato fries, and omelet looked good too."
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "Seersucker is one of our favorite brunch spots. The food is always delicious - Southern style with a NY twist. Fresh ingredients and creative combos. The BEST biscuits. They take reservations which is really nice, because you don't have to stand around waiting for a table."
    Dined on 12/1/2013
  • "The food is exceptional, chef bring together southern treats with NY food flavors. The wines are great and they just go with the food. I always get a crock pot of collards, add the hot sauce and it is wonderful. My wife is addicted to the fried chicken, the specials when they have one really are SPECIAL. For me it is the sliced duck breast, LOVE IT! The service is outstanding, the servers, the bar staff are a treat. They are attentive but do not congratulate you on your choice, which is so annoying. They know the wines that go with the meal, ask they do want you to enjoy the meal. Try the cocktail smokey & the bandit. It just were I want to be on Friday night. It is date night for my wife and I and when you walk in the door, it so friendly."
    Dined on 11/22/2013
  • "Reservations are a must here. The restaurant is small, but beautifully designed and well appointed. We enjoyed cocktails at the bar while waiting for our dining companions. The cocktail list is unique. The choices include vintage liquor options with ingredients that are special. I was pleased that the sweetness of my cocktail came from maple syrup. There is an excellent list of wines by the glass, including a very nice sparkling white from New Mexico made in champagne style. The food was really excellent with enough choices for the meat eaters among us as well as the vegans. I would love to have tried dessert, but the meal was so satisfying and filling that I could not. The coffee is great, but note that they do not serve espresso."

  • "This was my second visit to Seersucker and once again, it didn't disappoint. The service and cocktails were great."
    Dined on 11/18/2013
  • "After reading great reviews for Seersucker, I was expecting a really wonderful brunch experience. Instead, I thought the food was overpriced for what it was, and somewhat uneven. The biscuits were great, but I would have been happy to end the meal with them."

  • "I've been to Seersucker twice, had a great time both times. The fried chicken is great, and don't skip the biscuits, the molasses compound butter is amazing."
    Dined on 11/15/2013
  • "We live near here and are frequent diners. The food is always delicious, without fail. Their breakfast is good, lunch is better, but dinner is best. Had the lobster and grits with chanterelle mushrooms and it was out of this world. Great cocktails, small but nice wine list. Pro tip: get reservations. They are often fully committed if you walk in, meaning there is no point to wait because you will never sit down. Love this place!"
    Dined on 11/15/2013
  • "The food was very good, with lots of interesting variations. Will be going back!"
    Dined on 11/15/2013
  • "Enjoyed our weekday lunch -- not rushed and not too loud for conversation. My food (heirloom tomato soup, fried chicken sandwich, collard greens) was delicious, but I prefer dinner here because of the more extensive menu. We were a little disappointed that no desserts at all were offered at lunch."
    Dined on 10/30/2013
  • "Have been incredibly pleased with the food and the service here as of late! I cannot get enough of their biscuits and their bacon is cooked to perfection! The servers are so welcoming as well... hence, why I brunch here 2-3x a month!"

  • "A great neighborhood find in Brooklyn's chic Carroll Gardens. Love that it's located across the street from the park for nice views if seated toward the front. Creative comfort food with Southern flair. Attentive, knowing servers."

  • "I had quail, which is a special for the night, as my appetizer. And, I had the duck breast, which was spectacular. Both dishes were delicious but I will definitely go back for the duck breast!"
