Contemporary American | Long Island City, Queens

Had dinner with a few friends, and we all loved it! The ambience was perfect for relaxing dinner with friends, and we didn't have to scream at each other to talk (this is super nice as we were able to ACTUALLY enjoy our conversations and catch up). Food was excellent, staff were friendly, and we also didn't feel rushed either. A lovely place for a little get together. I would definitely go back for more of that enjoyable time and food. More

Brazilian | Long Island City, Queens

We found this little Brazilian place next to our hotel. The neighborhood does not look very nice, and the outside does not look like anything, however inside is a rustic looking place with a beautiful flower arrangement over the bar. The place looks very friendly and lively with old and young crowds. The food was interestingly good, the Brazilian flare and flavors were fantastic and the attention and service outstanding. Great place to go More

Went for an easy no fuss NYE night out at 10:30 and this was the perfect spot. Just the right amount of action with a slightly more mature crowd compared to your average bar. Service was impressive as well considering the holiday. We ordered 3 courses with drinks at the high top tables which all came perfectly timed. Passed out hats, crowns, horn blowers and complimentary champagne at midnight! More

Beer Garden | Long Island City, Queens

I love this space and Christina was more than accommadating to our table. Even, when more or less of our party was showing up. The food was good, never pass up on the sliders, fries, and Bavarian pretzels. My coworkers and I had games to play and was glad we didn't get kicked out with how loud we got lol but getting there for a 730/8pm dinner and drinks was perfect. The place started getting packed around 1030. Can't wait to come back! It's my favorite place to have group fun. More

The Creek and The Cave is proud to have paved the way for comedy in Long Island City. After all, we are the funniest neighborhood in Queens! We grew from a sprawling dive bar that was open 6 days a week to come to be named “The gem of the Queens comedy scene” by Time Out New York.” The Creek is now open 7 days a week and offers 150+ live events a month (including the award wining Week at the Creek), boasts 8 pinball machines, is host to a podcast network (cavecomedyradio.com) of over 20 weekly shows, regularly tours the country as CreekCaveLive and is home to culinary treats such as Churros Ice Cream Sandwiches, Praline Bacon and some of the tastiest California Style Mexican this side of the Mississippi. Come Eat Drink Play and Laugh with us! As Andrew W.K. said, “It’s all going down at one of the best bars in Long Island City, The Creek and The Cave, which has rightly earned its nickname “the CBGB’s of comedy.”More
