What We Had

I had a whole steak and eggs thing planned from the old menu and had to roll with the punches to settle on the only thing that could be made Whole30 (paleo + no sugar) compliant – the 2 eggs any style dish. I dropped the home fries and toast, having just the eggs (which I ordered over medium), the side salad with decent balsamic, and I ordered a separate side of avocado. My meal was okay, though the eggs were completely hammered.

My DH had the thick cut cinnamon French toast with a side of bacon – by all accounts, it was pretty good but not show stopping.

We ate outside in the summer lobster themed dining space. It’s cute.

Service

So-so. They did what they could, but the food took about half an hour to start coming out to diners (we arrived shortly after opening and was the second table – three others arrived after us).

Overall Impressions

This was their first brunch service after rolling out a new menu and it showed.

Rating

3 out of 5 for a disappointing new menu (not as much variety or novelty – had we not seen the previous version, we would have eaten somewhere up the street) and so-so food.

Littleneck

Lobster, clams & seafood in top end of Prospect Park /lower Gowanus area.

What We Had

We split the glazed polish bacon with tomato jam & homemade pickles appetizer. The bacon was peppery, sweet, salty, smoky & sticky. Good fat to chew ratio. Fresh, bright pickles with nice lingering brine and pepper punch. Thick and darkly alluring tomato jam.

I had the Little neck clams with chile flakes, fregola & mustard greens. Good seasoning with nice heat and a flavorful broth.

My DH had the roasted striped bass with purple broccoli, garlic cream & polenta. The polenta was creamy and the fish was well cooked.

Weathered rustic nautical feel

Service

Slow service

Overall Impressions

Not a bad little spot for a bite to eat or after dinner drink. Low lighting, cozy atmosphere, good food.

Rating

3.5 out of 5 for good flavors but nerve-wracking service when you’re trying to catch a show. I suspect a subsequent visit might go better.

Jordan’s Lobster Dock

Fresh casual seafood steps from the movie theater in Sheepshead Bay.

What We Had

I had the Lobster Roll with Sweet Potato Fries – The roll from the Brooklyn Lobster Pound was better seasoned, but this was nice. The lobster was cooked perfectly, with mayo on the side. clean, pure, simple. Skip the bun – it was of the store-bought hot dog variety, and proved unnecessary.

My DH had the Garlic Snow Crab Legs with Fries – his meal was decidedly decent – a little rubbery, but had a nice taste and he was covered in garlic butter by the end.

Brooklyn lager on tap.

Decor

Nothing fancy inside – weathered tables and chairs but no fish smell and a vague nautical theme. Large doors in the back lead to a retail fish market which also doesn’t smell like fish – just cold and ocean.

Service

Order at the counter – the counter guys were really young but friendly once we figured out how things were supposed to flow.

Overall Impressions

If you’re catching a movie, this might be your best bet in that area – it beats out the pizza place up the road and Friday’s.

Rating

3.5 out of 5 for decent food in a clean but weathered environment.
