  • Great whiskey bloody mary. You'd think this might not work, but it does!
  • An impressive collection of rich, heartwarming potables with a menu to match. - Inspector
  • This is where I want to go after I die. I'm training my soul while I still live.
  • Go to Char No. 4 in Brooklyn and let them take you on a journey through their giant collection of American whiskeys. Then eat some of their homemade lamb pastrami. Wow.
  • enjoy the brisket hash topped w/ sunnyside up eggs for brunch
  • The best bourbon selection anywhere plus great pork nuggets, cheese curds, pulled pork sandwiches and BLTs. Adam Richman, Man v. Food
  • Great spot! Order the bacon and fried cheese curd apps!!! Side of corn bread is very good. Shrimp and grits was good -must like cilantro (?) key lime pie is very strong and flavor quickly gets tired.
  • have the amazing bourbon bloody Mary
  • the fried cheese curds taste deliciously unhealthy. have them.
  • With a kitchen turning out impeccably smoked meats and more than 150 bottles of whiskey behind the bar, we recommend the delicious Pork Nuggets and Shrimp & Grits.
  • Brunch. Chipotle bourbon bloody Mary. Holy crap.
  • Have an old-fashioned at the finest whiskey bar in Brooklyn.
  • Delightful southern food with some nods towards barbecue, plus an excellent bourbon selection.
  • We love the Classic Cask 20 year, but at $150 for 2oz, it is a little pricey. For something splendid without the high price, try the Woodford Reserve. If whiskey isn't your thing, they also have wine.
  • Cannot stop thinking about the poached eggs and bacon cheddar grits. You must order them for brunch. Solid biscuit too.
  • Taste the best of Southern-fried Brooklyn at lunch here with a brisket sandwich or a hot bowl of jambalaya. Featured in Where to Eat 2011!
  • Popular brunch options include the biscuits Benedict with house-smoked ham and poached eggs; buttermilk pancakes with marmalade and pecan butter; and the poached eggs with bacon cheddar grits.
  • Everything on dinner menu was good but true winner were bacon/jalapeno cornbread & honey butter
  • Order the Nor'Easter', a delicious whiskey cocktail whipped up by Sean Josephs. If you've ever had a Dark n' Stormy, this cocktail is definitely for you.
  • Don't get the oysters. Do get the fried pork balls.
