dive bar extraordinare

I love this bar. It's spacious with plenty of seats at the bar and tables. You can't beat the happy hour prices, and it's only a short walk down to Valentino Pier to watch the sunset. There's a newish dj booth; plus there's never a cover when bands play.

One of the most original bars in NYC

Hands down one of the best and most original bars in what has become boring old-New York. This place bleeds Brooklyn and doesn't put up with fools very well. If you had a bad time there, well, then I'm guessing you don't know how to act in public. Don't be a show off or a tough guy or you'll be on your way out. You will love the decor and cheap but handsome pours. They have bands play there too and it's loud. Great place...wish there were more of theses places in Manhattan. hot chics, too. bonus!

NEVER AGAIN!!

TERRIBLE place--will never, ever go back! The bartender was arrogant and unfriendly--he was only interested in hanging out with his friends in the back, and completely ignored everyone else at the bar. I stayed for 2 beers, and both times had to wait a good 15 minutes for him to come back in from smoking out front with his friends (and even then, he repeatedly ignored me and everyone else who wasn't in his clique).

The bar is kind of cute, I guess, but it's dirty, and looks like it is trying AWFULLY hard to be kitschy and off-beat. (We get it, you're hipsters!) Do yourself a favor and go next door to the much cleaner and MUCH friendlier Brooklyn Ice House.

Very Cool Bar...

This is the quentisential corner bar...great music, owner operated, and friendly cool crowd. A great spot to go to after eating at one of the local red hook restuarants.

SUPER SLOW SERVICE

I'VE ONLY BEEN ONCE AND THAT WAS ENOUGH!!!! I WENT TO THIS EMPTY BAR WITH 8 FRIENDS AND WE ALL WAITED 20 MIN FOR A DRINK. I DON'T KNOW WHY CONSIDERING THE PLACE ONLY HAD 3 OTHER PATRONS
I WOULD NOT GO BACK

coolest bar in the world

This place makes me glad I don't live in Red Hook...if I did, I'd be sloshed at this bar EVERy night. You really can't beat the decor here - fake ducks hanging upside down off the ceiling - cool tables and chairs - a Fishing For Dummies book in the bathroom. This place just rules cause it's got style. The beer selection is great - bartenders are always sweet - strange movies play on a big TV in the corner.

red hook is off the hook

this adds to the nice commercial strip they got going on in Red Hook. Love this little alcove of a bar. Nice and dark inside, with good locals hanging out front smoking. Everyone was friendly, and had a good time here out in Red Hook when I went.

Gone Fishin'

It's worth the trip just to hear Barry, one of the owners often found behind the stick, laugh. If his Irish accent doesn't charm ya, other friendly neighborhood banter will. Your eyes never take in all the fishing and hunting objects all over the bar. Be sure to look under the bar itself, but not if you are a major animal rights activist. Those deer feet are perfect for hanging your hat on! Tuesday Trivia night is much fun!

Not just your everyday fishing bar

This place rocks. The beer selection is good and they have gummy worms and fish crackers in dixie cups. The place is decorated with fish and fishing stuff and the neighborhood crowd is varied and pretty mellow. However, the true joy is a bass fishing game with a reel and a HUGE screen. It's great. Where else in the city can you fight electronic bass while your friends drink and make fun of you? Alright...maybe not just your friends.

Grab a pint at the bait and tackle - you won't be disappointed.
