less than ok food, terrible service. – Went there 4 times cause I live a few blocks away. I have given up. The waiters forget about you. The food is nothing to talk about. Far too many good places to eat. Go to Diner, Relish, Dumont, or Dressler. Oh yeah, the specials did not changed in the year I went there. Whats so special about food cooked in PBR? Nothing.
So the foods good...but the service doesnt exist. – Ive given this place many tries and everytime i forget how good the food was because the waiters leave you wondering if you have finally succeeded in becoming invisible. The place has great decor and a good overall feeling. It seems like a free-for-all for the servers. Yesterday i arrived early for brunch, before all the tables were full and was very optimistic because the waiter seemed above par. As the place filled up you could tell it was getting too crazy to handle. i waited 25 minutes after asking for the check for it to arrive, not to mention watched our waiter give at least 4 other tables their checks. This place is always packed on the weekends and it amazes me that they still cant give decent service. But in hindsight the food is always great. The tofu scramble is always fresh and flavorful and they keep it exciting with specials like white lasagna. I guess im still ambivalent.
really friendly, delicious and comfy – Lodge has been one of my favorite places since moving to the neighborhood last year. I always meet friends there to sit for a few hours to talk, its very comfortable. I have found the staff to be very friendly and easy to talk with. I enjoy the whiskey and bourbon selection and love the veggie burger. The specials are always great, the halibut this past week was delicious! I would deffinitely recommend this restaurant. The General Store deli attached is a great place to get a good cup of coffee and sandwich or salad. I want to say thanks to the staff for always providing great service and conversation, they've made lodge a real staple in the neighborhood!!
Would not recommend – I was hoping that the poor service I had the first time I ate here was a one time thing, unfortunately it has only gotten worse. Not only did we double order food because our server didn't tell us that our entrees came with it already but found out our drink specials were not really "specials" at all when we received the bill! The food here is basically average so it is definitely not worth putting up with the ridiculous service. I recommend anywhere else in the neighborhood.
Schlitz in a can! – Not the best food in the area, (maybe dumont is) but it does fix you up right before a night going out. Has Schlitz beer for a $1 or so, can't beat that when chowing down on some home style grub in a place that looks like a cabin!
Love that chicken pot-pie! – I've had drinks at The Lodge, I've had brunch, and I've had lunch. The owner was there having some Gnostic Society meeting with his greaser buddies when I was there for drinks, and he was nice enough to offer a free shot of Jack to everyone at the bar in good will. The Lodge feels homey and cozy, so I'll always like it for that. It's got a nice layout and huge wrap-around windows that let in lots of light from the street. You can people-watch or just read the paper while you have brunch. Although, I wasn't crazy with my food when I had brunch there, and the waiter never brought my drink order. I dove in there for lunch on a cold, rainy afternoon one time last winter, and the chicken pot-pie with puff pastry on top was just what the doctor ordered. That and the Lodge Iced Tea (their version of a Long Island Iced Tea) certainly brought the warmth back to my spirits. I've never had to wait to be seated and I think it's a reliable place for a nice time out.
Nice atmosphere, friendly and warm – Really nice atmosphere and friendly staff make for a good spot here in Williamsburg. The food is quite good and my absolute favorite thing was the BLT made with tofu bacon.. I would have never normally liked something like that but it was amazing..their bread was delicious as well.
Just Excellent. – Food was excellent. Nice place. Nice staff. The cook is a stud. Good location. Just go there and enjoy it.
good hood food – Its nice to see a williamsburgh restaurant without snotty servers. Nice people good food and kid friendly.I can eat here without feeling like my family is inconviencing them.
Bad bad bad – Condescending bar staff, Poor quality food. Food was bland and under cooked. Beer was warm, drinks were weak. Bartender was snotty and unfriendly. Go elsewhere.
