    Lighthouse is my favorite neighborhood restaurant, just call ahead on weekends. I recommend the oysters, salads (the big one and the farro), escarole, the burger with fries and some natural wine.

    The burger. Literally the only burger ever made properly (actually) medium rare: cooked outside, pink throughout. And the fries are great with ketchup or their jalapeno aoili (peppery, not spicy)

    $1 oyster happy hour, worthy cheeseburger, half chicken portions that are serious & accompanied by delectable pan roasted wheat that is crisped to perfection. 'Nuff said.

    New fav brunch spot in East Williamsburg. Cerviche is spot-on. Love the French pressed coffee too

    great burger - quarter pounder is just the right size, you don't feel gross after eating the whole thing. cornichons, beefsteak tomato & mayo are just right. ask for the shoestring fries not on top.

    Fantastic spot for drinks, and they have a killer brunch menu with some unique dishes. Good windows for people-watching and a little outdoor seating.

    Ok- so everything here is awesome. But in particular the sauces for the oysters are so next level. Also brussels sprouts.

    I thought the best thing on the menu was the burger but I was SO F'ING WRONG. Get the half chicken. It's served with Israeli couscous and flakes of magical tasty dust.

    Burger is amazing and not over priced - onion jam, butter lettuce, brioche bun. Recommend a reservation for a Fri-Sat-Sun evening.

    Used to be a top 5 restaurant for me, think it fell off a bit during pandemic but still good. Recommend the smoked labneh

    The burger and the chicken sandwich are beyond amazing. Best meal I've had in Williamsburg in 3 years. (Resident for 7 years)

    Pretty much the most amazing bartenders in the world (Asaf). Name a liquor you like and they will give you the cocktail you love. Hate the word mixologist, but they are.

    Had the steak and eggs and chilaquiles and they were both frickin' amazin'. The excellence is in the details.

    As a night cap, the el duderino on the cocktail menu is killer. The summer open windows makes a nice breeze and the new pa pie makes guest appearances in my dreams sometimes.

    The Chilaquiles with chicken might be the best brunch item in the city! Get it with eggs too.

    Look, I don't even know. The brunch burger is beyond words. Somewhere between the fried green tomato, spinach gravy, and whatever else they put on there, lies Terabithia.

    The lighthouse quarter pounder should be outlawed- because how can anything this good be legal. Manchego topped heaven.

    It's all delish but the big salad, with a couple skewers, and the PA pie to finish up. Classic. Naama and Assaf couldn't be friendlier.

    Great music and small plates. Get the gambas al ajillo if you love garlic! And yes, the big salad is big enough for dinner.

    Sit at the bar, and watch the owner play the pied piper of all the almost cute girls in the hood.

    So far you have to try the lamb chops, Brussels sprouts and apple dessert were amazing. Wash it all down with some Lucifers.

    Inventive dishes and great flavors, but most dishes seem a little overpriced, even for Williamsburg.

    Expensive – especially for BK – but if you can afford a $26 rib eye and the $6 brussel sprouts it is well worth it. Also, the bartender is amazing! Read more

    You really can't take a wrong turn with the menu! But skip the stop in sub zero temperatures, the place is freezing... my feet were icicles by the end of the meal.

    Very cute place but food was underwhelming. Maybe we had hi expectations after the menu came across as healthy but different. Maybe they just ran out of salt in the kitchen? Would give it a try again.

    Burger is good but this place is a madhouse on the weekends
