Village Voice's Description

In northern Minnesota, Jack the Horse is a serene, picturesque lake, perfect for fishing trips with good friends. Closer to home, Jack the Horse is a tavern on a tree-shaded street in Brooklyn Heights, and much like its namesake, it's relaxed and unpretentiousaperfect for drinking with good friends. Almost a month old, the neighborhood bar and restaurant has been a hit with locals. According to the barkeep, "Everyone that comes in says, 'I live around the corner.' " It also lures in some of the area's "stroller set" during the weekend with a lulling Eric Claptonalike soundtrack, lots of cozy seating, and plenty of rounded edges. A decent selection of beers on tap, including the rich and filling Rogue Dead Guy Ale ($8) and the citrusy and malty Avery IPA ($6), ensures that visitors stay awhile and have a nosh. Order the grilled German sausages on a roll ($14) or one of the other hearty entrA(c)es, as some of the apps, though tasty, are a bit pricey and too small to soak up the brew. Before exiting onto the corner of Cranberry and Hicks, patrons should take a glance at the detailed illustrations on the walls. They were created by the chef's father-in-law and feature a variety of scenarios, including a mailman happily delivering the day's correspondenceajust another day in the neighborhood.

  • PHOTO: Did you know the house from "Moonstruck" is right down the block at 19 Cranberry? Here's Cher and Nicholas Cage on the set in 1987, at the link!

  • David B. on 09/16/09

    Get the "behind the knees" cocktail

  • Melea S. on 05/05/10

    Best drinks in Brooklyn. And when I say drinks, I mean cocktails.

  • The Corcoran Group on 03/04/11

    Great neighborhood gastropub. Try the Macaroni & Cheese, The ‘Sokota’ Burger, or the Coho Salmon.

  • Basak H. on 07/13/13

    Great food, great service. Looking for a fruity, summery, refreshing cocktail? Try the long bottom bramble!
