Our smaller, original indoor bar was built from the wreckage of an old auto garage, and our bigger indoor space came along a year later. Both have a wide variety of craft beers on tap, including choices from Sixpoint and Smuttynose, as well as a well-stocked bar.

Hungry? We also have a restaurant, Dutch Boy Burger, which features our signature burger varieties, including beef, turkey, lamb, chicken, veggie and Hangover — it has an egg on it. We also serve Brooklyn Bangers dogs, sandwiches, virgin and spiked shakes, beer floats, gourmet sodas and craft brews. We open at 11 a.m. for lunch and dinner every day and serve brunch on the weekends from 11-3:30. Check out the menu here.
