Great spot for southern/soul food. The portions are really big, so take that into consideration when ordering. They have great cocktails and definitely get the corn bread. If you go on Sunday or Monday, they have a solid fried chicken dinner. They only take reservations for big groups, so there can be a bit of a wait on the weekends.

Delicious cocktails. Seriously. I've only been here for brunch but it's been a big hit every time. Simple, solid food that is surprisingly unpretentious, given the neighborhood.

This is an easy one. Everything here is great. A friend of mine lives on the block and this place is a staple. I have tried mostly everything and have never been disappointed. Personal favorites are the pig tails, the bone marrow, and the mac and cheese appetizers. The wine selection is great and the cocktails are great. Service has always been fantastic.

I’ve gone through a few phases of Brooklyn Star. 1) Pimm’s cups - their Pimm’s Cups are DEE-LIGHTFUL. This was phase one - I would go in and request this same drink each and every time. 2) Wine and chocolate bread pudding. I’m gonna be real, my reaction to wine is typically “the cheapest red one you got" so my review is based on that. But to have a relaxing environment with a nice $7 glass of (I believe the Rioja) red wine is a great experience anywhere. There was also a period of time where my roommate was addicted to the chocolate bread pudding and I was happy to tagalong and help her eat it. Let me tell you it will change your life. SO GOOD. Make that happen. 3) “Brunch" and John Daly’s. I put brunch in quotations as I have not actually had a full brunch there. As you can tell by my review my review is mainly based on the drinks of this establishment and that is because I’m a vegetarian and can’t enjoy what I’m told is some great food. Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve had a few things and they were delicious. But I don’t think I can give a full review. However, i can tell you their biscuits and donuts are HEAVENLY and a basket of each is $4 at brunch so this is a MUST. Another must is the John Daly’s -alcoholic Arnold Palmer’s. You can’t taste the alcohol so they’re quite dangerous but PERFECT for Sunday Fun day. Overall I <3 the BK Star. However I do have a few issues. 1) I miss the Irish bartender. He had a fun accent. 2) WHY DON’T THEY LET YOU ORDER SIDES SEPARATELY? Because I don’t eat meat I often stare at the menu and drool over the words “hush puppies" so WHY CAN’T I ORDER THEM? But aside from my small problems this place is great and I would highly recommend it to anyone in the area. Friendly service, great drinks and gluttonous food, what more could you want?

Come here for brunch! Delicious southern food, fun spot. Get a bloody bull, and chow chow means slaw.

Smells like BBQ. Cool crowd. Friendly service. Nice bar. Big, filling portions. I liked the Brussels sprouts.
