Stopped in while exploring Bay Ridge and had a burger and a beer. The other reviews have it right. Excellent burger, with just the right amount of crunchy goodness. And the melted cheddar was top notch too. Fries and beer right on as well. The rooms are attractive and comfortable. Staff and guests friendly and social. Must be fun in... More

This is a Bay Ridge staple. Since 1975 this local hangout has been serving great pub grub. The burgers come in several varieties and are spectacular, but in my opinion the ribs are as good or better than any bbq place I've been to in Brooklyn. Their lunch menu is smaller than the dinner menu but there are still many... More

This is a local place that we go to quite often. The food is solid and reasonably priced but while service is friendly it often gets bogged down during peak times.

Was waiting for a friend, since I was unfamiliar with the area I asked my friend a good place that we can meet she recommended this place. What a great place the beer was nice and cold. The bartender was fabulous I would definitely go there again...👍

My daughter was in from Colorado so I didn't want to go to any place pretentious. There is nothing like a good burger so we went to Skinflints on 5th. During the day it's a great place to go for lunch, at night a little hard to park. Worth the effort!

Went on a really busy Friday night, place was packed with diners. We waited for about 20 minutes but it was well worth it. We both ordered the same burger and it was juicy delicious as always. Skinflints never disappoints...try it if you are nearby, you will love me for it.

This is a pub style restaurant with a large bar. Their burgers are fantastic and cooked to order. They have various sandwiches, appetizers and pub style food. On Sunday they have brunch which is very good. It's always very busy. They also have a few tables outside in their courtyard. The staff are very efficient. They don't have parking so... More

We have been here many times but not in the last two years because we moved out of state. Still great food and great drinks in a wonderful friendly atmosphere. Hamburgers are still the best!!!
