Bubby's is more or less the perfect neighborhood restaurant, with reasonably priced comfort food, scrupulously sourced, great coffee, and probably the best pie in New York. Being there is like visiting your friend's house and having his or her mom cook for you.

Great brunch spot...... – Great casual brunch spot..... especially on a nice day when you can sit outside. The menu is full of yummy comfort food and the bloody mary's are GREAT. Can be a bit crowded on the weekends......

Great Matzah ball soup & Mac N Cheese, Very Crowded though. – Had a work lunch here on Thursday. Very cramped and close quarters, quite loud, and rushed service.

Brought clients because of the food. Matzah ball soup was light and fluffy, as it should be. However, all of the sandwiches were served on toasted thick sourdough. The bread not only overwhelmed the sandwich, but it was very difficult to eat, and get your mouth around. Would go for brunch, but not for lunch or dinner.

Decent place, subpar service and overpriced. – We were sat promptly for Sunday's brunch, but the problems began where most of the brunch specials were out when we got there. I ordered the special omelette but the waiter came back moments later and told me that they ran out of that as well. I had no choice but to change it to "Bubby's Breakfast". But guess what? The busboy brought out the special omelette instead of the Breakfast! The waiter was clueless.

I have to say the food was pretty good, and the "Fair Trade Coffee" as well. However, it was overpriced based on the ingredients they used in our food. It was an okay experience, but honestly, there is nothing else to rave about.

Great meals for weekend brunch or weekday lunch – Cheese Grits every day is heaven. It's the best comfort food in the world and Bubby's makes a good one. For lunch, the Garlic burger with brie cheese is a good bet. Just don't talk to anyone for a few hours because your breath will reek. The wait staff are very nice and the dining area is airy. You can eat al fresco if you want but it is right next to a Holland tunnel exit. The portions are sizeable and definitely invite sharing. Not everything on the menu is tasty but they do make some dishes well. I have a few favorites and am a frequent customer there.

Horrible Service, Average Food, Good Prices if you are willing to wait – We had horrible service and had to prompt the waitress for everything from drinks, to bread to our check. The tables around us were complaining about the same thing. The food was good, but nothing to write home about.

Overall Good meal – We are in New York for a holiday and decided to try buby's as it was just roound the corner. We had brunch, I ordered a bubby's breakfast meal. The food arived within 15 minutes. The bacon was nice but a bit too fatty. The eggs and homefries were amazing! We also tried the pancakes, they were delicious at hot. The actual place was friendly but a little cramped. The bathrooms were not very nice and not accessible that easily. Overall it was a good meal but I wouldn't want to go there again as it would have been boring.

Cheese grits to die for... – I love the brunch here - especially the biscuits and cheese grits - but you have to get there before 11am, or the wait is heinously long. Although I'm a devotee of the food, I have to agree with those who complain about the service, both in-restaurant and delivery. It's pretty shabby, with a few exceptions for some great servers that shine among those that are really sub-par.

New Yorkers know to avoid this place – Happy farmhouse decor, complete with groups of out-of-towner girls who think everything is one big S&theCity episode. Overpriced, food comparable to your local corner diner, and the guaranteed long wait at the door adds insult to injury. Thought I would come back after a few months to give it another try, but nothing's changed and this is the last time I'll eat here. ps: the pie is still good though

Great for Kids...Not adults! – This is a great place...if you're a kid.

You can run around in this large space, yell to your hearts content and they even have a play corner with toys. But if you're an adult who cares about food, ambience and prompt service.."forghetaboudit as they say in Brooklyn. The food is so bad that we didn't even want to try the pies which I'm reading in other review is terrfic. So if you have kids..GO. This could be a wonderful place for them. Otherwise it's just coasting. Lazy management, kitchen and staff who just want to coast and make everything easy on themselves.

Horrible Service, Overpriced and Over-rated – I came here because of a friend's recommendation. My wife and I were sooo disappointed with the brunch. Let's start with the long wait - half an hour. The table service was horrible. Our orders kept getting mixed up with the next table and our waiter barely came around to check up on us. The food was mediocre. My wife ordered the smoked salmon omelete; very salty and the home fries were burnt. I got the steak and eggs - again nothing special. The prices were just outrageous. Why were we paying high prices for dishes we can cook at home? The food was not even organic. The only saving grace was the pie we had for dessert. Hands down the best pie we ever had. Next time, we are just going to pop in and pick up a pie to go. For brunch, we are going back to our usual place.
