First of all, planning a wedding is hard enough but, one of, if not THE most important thing is to ensure that the reception food is delicious!

My fiance and I embarked on the arduous rite of passage of finding a reception venue for our wedding. After visiting many places, we stopped by Bubby's .

The prices are reasonable, the space was great-fun, big, two-levels with sweeping views of the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges. We thought, great, let's have a tasting and then we can book the place. Here's the rub:

BUBBY'S ONLY OFFERS TASTINGS FOR WEDDING MENU ITEMS AFTER YOU PUT DOWN YOUR NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT. We thought that was insane so, after a lot of back and forth we were able to secure an ENTREE tasting at a fee where we could sample entrees only from the wedding catering menu.

So, with fiance and father (he'll eat anything) in tow, we headed to Bubby's on a rainy Friday after work.

Once there, our waiter started bringing us the entree items one by one. The presentation was less than impressive with the food slapped in the center of the plate-no garnish, no sides...

First up: veggie lasagna
Review: had to be frozen. was cookie cutter lasagna, watery and without flavor

Next up: pecan crusted salmon
Review: overly sweetened crust to mask the blandness of the cat food like underside.

Lastly: Steak
The best of the three but, not good.

Don't get me wrong, the staff at Bubby's is really nice and the Brunch there is great BUT for something as important as your wedding-look elsewhere!

Pros: Spacious, Nice Views Affordable

Great food - had gazpacho and flank steak...so yummy. Corn pudding is so good - like a dessert. I will definitely go back.

I had good memories of the place in Tribeca. The brunch menu was pretty limited...don't put up pictures of your mac and cheese then not have it on the menu! Apple and bacon omellette...solid. Only two pies available for dessert. Lame. They made us wait around for a while though there were open tables...a little annoying. Not a bad consolation prize if the line at Grimaldi's is too long.

After a shaky past few months, I'm proud that Bubby's has taken the neighborhood's cries seriously and has made marked improvements. It's finally back to being a place I want to recommend to my friends!

My wife and I had an excellent brunch there today. There were lots of kids running around and our waiter was very patient with us. My wife is pregnant and has specific things she can't eat. They were very busy. It is surprising that the reviewer felt the need to post what he sais was their last health inspection. I went on line and saw their lasdt inspection, whcih had zero violations. Knowing what is going on in New York right now with the department of health, it seems like over-zealousness to attack a perfectly great restaurant. Whatever, the place is clean, and good.

If you have ever been so hung over from a crazy Saturday night, and were in such desperate need of an amazing brunch!! Bubby's in Brooklyn is the place to be!!! Not only was the service sweet and quick, but the food was amazing (order a bowl of cheese grits).....oh..did I mention the coffee. Best coffee ever and the server said it was free trade!!! I didn't save room for pie, but I know to next time!!!

We went to a wedding here recently and loved it! It was perfect for a large group- homey comfort food, not too fancy, but delicious. Loved the blue cheese dip and that cherry pie!! Excellent service. Better than the food is the space-- open and light. The view is unparalleled. Overally, for NYC, great for a party.

This is a large open space where kids are allowed to have fun, roam free (and all that encompasses) and be themselves.
There's even a great play area within. It's rare to find such a kid friendly place. That's its charm.
BUT if you're an adult without kids who goes to such places for good food and ambience the this IS NOT the place for you.
Everything here is on cruise control. No one wants to work too hard..even in the kitchen.
The food is below average and nothing to go for even though it all reads great on the menu.
So if you have kids go. They won't be able to tell how bad the food is.
But why adults without kids would want to go is beyond my mind to grasp.

well, lets just start off by imagining a trip to your dear old homicidal grandmothers house with a larger kitchen ,5.99 chairs and 2.99 seats. Now throw in a large wooden floor 8 illegal immigrants and a warehouse and you got the floor plan of Bubby's. Now for the food,?.ok? grandma decides to puree the house cat, lay it between to halves of stale bread, diced up the last three potatoes in the fridge and served as a hamburger and home fries. The grand finally she gives you a bill for 38 dollars. All jokes aside this place would be server as a roller-skate rink , the place looks like they spent zero time on the upkeep and the food was horrendous and the service?..lets just say the waitress left in the middle of our meal and didn?t return forcing me to get the bill and return it to the cashier myself. For a 40 dollar brunch I?ll go to the dirty dinner in Williamsburg
(kellogs ) and be much happier. In closing , let this old granmother pass away in peace without your money,

Pros: Best part of this place was the "exit" door which led me to freedom and better food elsewhere.

Cons: CONS, yeah thats exactly who works there, convicts and ...."others" the whole place is one big "CON"

.

The space is awsomw (lot's of potential) food is okay but not to die for. Staff average.
Event coordinator stinks but friendly.

Great piece of real estate I wish Icould own and do an awsome restuarant with. They are sitting on a goldmine. They should just keep the one in Tribeca and sell the one in brooklyn to someone who
use that space.. cause they are wasting it.

I was part of a party of 10 who had reservations at Bubby's Brooklyn. Well, it turned out that whole restaurant was booked for a wedding. The manager had us taken by car service to the Tribeca location where the restaurant was full, but we weren't made to wait to be seated. At the end of the meal we were told that dinner was complimentary. That was above and beyond anything that restaurant in New York would have done. I'll definitely be going back and by the way...the food was great.

The brunch here is excellent. I especially enjoyed the sour cream pancakes. Prepare for a long wait for your table and toddlers on the loose everywhere, but the food is well worth it.

the place has awsome brunch, We had a delicious egg benedict over spinach and eggs with smoked trout. The biscuits were delicious and the food was really good. It's slightly pricy but the place is right next to the waterfront park under the bridge. Its a good date place to bring on a nice afternoon or a good ambience for friends to gather.

I went Bubby's Brooklyn on the recommendation of Citysearch unfortunately they were wrong. This place is not a great place for brunch. I went there on a Sunday and waited a 1-hour for a table. The service was slow and the food was below average. The homemade pie I wanted was sold out by noon. Its too bad the area does not have many other restaurants because we would have walked to another place. I have not gone to Bubbys Manhattan but I surmise theres no difference.

The brunch is very delicious, but beware, you may have some issues with the service, since it's not so well known for great waitering. The maple syrup isn't the best on the market, but it will do when ordering the BIG BREAKFAST meal... Yum!

To begin with, My boyfriend and I got to Bubby's at 830pm on a Friday night in August...We were greeted by an interesting, waiter who barely spoke and when he did he whispered. My boyfriend orders the ribs and our whispering waiter tells us there "all out"! We both looked at him expecting him to laugh and say he was kidding...too bad HE WASN'T! How does a BBQ joint run out of ribs at 830pm? Did I mention the restaurant was empty as can be? I'll skip over the rest by saying that all the wonderful pie reviews in the world couldn't have made me or my boyfriend want to stay a minute longer because judging from the rest of the meal...it would NOT likely have lived up to expectations.

It sounds like another reviewer had an unfortunate experience with Bubby's pie, but don't write them off yet! The sour cherry pie is the perfect balance of sweet and tart year round, and the home-made vanilla ice cream is the perfect accompaniment! Strawberry rhubarb is also wonderful. I tried the blueberry the other day, and while good, it wasn't as good as the other two.

The brunch is great at Bubbys -- the sour cream pancakes are light and fluffy and tasty. Omelets are great too, if not pricey. (Expect to pay $16 for a special).

I've recently started eating dinner at Bubbys, and I love it! Great comfort food.

My friends and I trekked out to Brooklyn on Sunday to take part in the Bubby's pie social. They were out of pie 2 full hours before the event was supposed to end. Desperate, we held ourselves over with some Grimaldi's pizza *yum* and then waited a good half hour for some take out slices of Bubby's "famous" homemade pie.

Were we disappointed! They were out of cherry, so we got a few slices of apple and one key lime. The apple pie was dreadful. It had so much cinnamon it could make you sneeze. One friend remarked, "did they forget the sugar or something?". Another said, "I'd rather get the apple pie from Burger King." We are good eaters, but no one finished their pie. Sour apples, soggy tasteless crust, not sweet at all, and 7 bucks for a slice. Don't waste your time.

Brunch is crowded madness with toddlers and waits, but with good reason: the food is excellent. But Bubby's has become a favorite of mine for dinner. It's spacious and comfortable -- yet it's the food that brings me back. The American fare hits the spot with a solid burger, a great pulled pork sandwich, and killer cole slaw. Everything else I've tried on the menu has been really good too. Just avoid early sunday night unless you have or love lots of kids.

Any restaurant in a hip neighborhood that doesn't warn its patrons before they wait an hour for a table that they may be seated between the "playroom" section and the geriatric cancer recovery table on it's way back from Temple only to have your service compromised by the fact that the waiters spend more time dodging ill-mannered toddlers than bringing you your coffee, toast and melon. HOWEVER - the Bloody Mary's are fabulous - if you go, you'll need to drink at least 4.

BOYS! they took our brunch away from us - don't let them get away with it.
