Rather overpriced (especially the sides), very loud, but an enjoyable layout. Nice way of ordering food and good service but if a joint has only one dish, you would expect something better than what they offer. Meatballs are not really that good, serving sizes are too small and all in all, our party would not recommend it.

Top marks for the relaxed layout, with tables for sit-down diners and a bar for drinkers or solo types like me. My Bees Knees cocktail (NY gin, honey and lemon) was absolutely delicious, served up with some old-fashioned charm by the lovely barman. For $10, my Kitchen Sink (as in "everything but") ruled; 3 chicken and pork meatballs, parmesan cream and the chef's selection of salad - an amazing mixture of black beans, grated carrot, rocket'n'apple, hard potato salad and grits. Delicious, and $18 for salad and cocktail was a bargain, too.

All this time I thought The Meatball Shop was just that — a place to buy meatballs; I had no idea it was a restaurant. The menu is dizzying with its abundance of options; don't be afraid to ask for guidance from the severs. Meatballs are moist and flavorful. I tried the spicy pork and the bratwurst (the special of the day); both were delicious though I definitely preferred the pork, as it was more moist ad flavorful. I had my meatballs atop a plate of veggies: a fresh crunchy salad, shredded carrots, pickled cucumbers, spiced chickpeas. Meatballs come as sliders, heroes, "smashed" into burgers, alongside pasta, topped with our choice of half a dozen sauces, and even a fried egg if you want to go whole hog. Food is fresh, delicious, and very reasonably priced. Sangria is a touch too sweet and the beer list is interesting though quite limited. House-made ice cream and cookies can be combined into ice cream sandwiches, the execution of which is somewhat plain and falls a bit short of its potential (cookies are too hard, ice cream isn't particularly rich or creamy). Service is pleasant and helpful. The space is adorable: warm, inviting, and thoroughly enjoyable. A great place to have an inexpensive meal with friends.

This hits the spot every time. It's a very New York thing to pick one thing and do it well, and these guys have done just that. I generally get the "kitchen sink salad" which is always chock full of local fresh veggies (not your average boring romaine salad), and of course a bunch of meatballs. Just make sure to go at an off-peak hour; otherwise there's a wait and it's deafening inside.

Their desert and choices of meals are all to die for, I spend often going to the one in the city and now that they are here makes it worth while. The environment is amazing and staff is very friendly. Place is clean and the bar is a nice place to hangout around. Its a convenient location within a block from the train exit and its a good place to go out with friends.

We visited The Meatball Shop in Williamsburg during Small Business week. I must say this Brooklyn location is great. We didn't have to wait. We just sat at the bar and had a full view of them making the food. The specials of the day were good. We got some sliders, meatballs, veggies, and starch. Well rounded meal but too full for ice cream sandwiches.
