Brooklyn Cafe has been around the neighborhood for years and seems to always have a full house, so we thought we'd try it. The menu is fairly simple, with various American options. We tried the lobster bisque, fried green tomatoes, corned beef sandwich, and egg rolls. The fried "green" tomatoes were actually fresh red tomatoes, and weren't nearly as good as they should've been. The egg roles were soggy, and felt like they had been made a while ago. The other plates were actually pretty good, but nothing extraordinary. So, while there was nothing absolutely terrible here, there are so many other good options in the area we think its better to look elsewhere.

This restaurant was fantastic!!! Sam’s lamb chops and the Rueben are our favorites. The service is spot on and the food never disappoints when we go. The wine list is also one of the best in town.

Used to be so much better. I got a steak salad and the steak came out almost raw (I ordered medium) and there salad had way too much dressing on it. The fried tomato appetizers were too heavily batter fried. The fish tacos were good but the cold rice slaw was an odd pairing with them. Not great.
Service was slow and I had to wait 10 minutes to even get the waitress to come get my plate to send the raw steak back. She was very sweet about it and offered me something else and then a free dessert but it was too late so we politely declined both. Unfortunately we won’t be going back. Wanted to love it as I have been here many times in the past years ago and it was great. Maybe just a bad night but I didn’t love the menu.

Jeff and Mike are an asset to the community. Improvements made have upped the dining experience. The food continues to be delicious. We had the best carrot cake ever!!! Their wait staff are charming and knowledgeable, especially Jayln. We are regulars for date night and this is a favorite for us to bring family and friends. Perfect for before/after entertainment at the Civic Center. Pat

Delicious food and attentive staff. My Cosmopolitan was too tart and more Grand Marnier was added. It was still too tart for me, but I drank it. I don’t like Cosmos that are too red or too sweet, but the bartender needs to revisit his recipe.

Go here frequently and usually get the same meal. However this time is flavorless and sent it back. Second go round was still lacking in the normal flavorful meal that I get.

I brought home the left overs but trashed them.

I feel like I am cheating on this because Brooklyn Cafe has been Steve’s and My favorite restaurant for many years. Jeff just has the magic formula and the consistency is what you can count on. Never have we had a disappointing meal at BC. In fact the specials are fantastic but the staples are carried over for a reason. They are the best. So many people we know feel the same way we do and count BC as their go to spot for the best food anywhere. Love the expansion. It was obviously needed. Carol Raeber
