Great food, great staff – I ate there this morning with my mother and 2 year old daughter and we all had a great time. We had the open face meatloaf sandwich which was incredible! The chocolate chip pancakes - fantastic! - and a really good omelette. And it was all very affordable. The staff was very friendly and helpful and they have play dough and other toys to keep kids occupied. We will definitely return very soon!
a different kind of karaoke – You have not done karaoke until you've done it at Hope & Anchor in Red Hook. The matronly drag queen who hosts is great, and everybody who comes here can actually sing (but they won't kick you out if you can't).
A neighborhood diner nourishes remote Red Hook with simple stick-to-your-ribs American fare. – The Scene
A crowd this mixed--local workers, lounging artists and adventuresome city folk--usually signals one of two things: the only restaurant around, or a reasonably priced diner that serves darned good food. Hope & Anchor, situated on a lonely gray stretch in Red Hook, is both. The brick-and-mirror dining room, with its swivel-stool bar, metal-flaked booths and rotating dessert case stocked with homemade sweets hint at another hip "New Diner," but it's a friendly staffed neighborhood joint at heart.
This wide-ranging American menu is less ironic, and more satisfying, than the retro-stylized photos under laminate would suggest. Sandwiches, burgers and salads, like the lemon-dressed cobb, are classic successes. Entrees are more ambitious: Crackly skinned, herb-roasted chicken atop chunky mashed potatoes and greens cries for gravy, but beautifully grilled pork loin is sublime. Sweet-tart lemon butter offsets salty, ham-wrapped tuna--just ask for it rare.
Bacon and Eggs every saturday... – This place is incredible. Great vibe, great food. Getting more crowded though...hope it keep up the amazing quality and atmosphere. Thanks!
best brooklyn breakfast – this place has the world's most divine pancakes. the decor is a lovely contrast to the grim surroundings of red hook, but pancakes and bacon make up for it all. fluffy, light & dusted with confectioners sugar like some new orleans dream dont even need syrup. the soundtrack piped in over this heavenly breakfast makes every single breakfast seem like a sunday morning one.
Red Hook'rs Do It Right! – When in Red Hook, there's one place to go when you're looking for high-quality home style cooking. Hope and Anchor, an unpretentious and eminently affordable "diner," has been offering up good old standards like fluffy omelets, great-tasting veggie burgers, dynamite roast chicken, and the best meat loaf and mashed potatoes for a few years now. An assortment of boutique wines and beers and inventive cocktails keep things interesting.
Service is warm and efficient, and weekend nights are enhanced by the presence of the lovely Kay Sera hosting a karaoke event that is second to none (yes, Manhattanites make the trip for this one!).
Yes – Love this place. The look, feel, music, service & food all roll up to a wonderful experience. Weekend mornings are a great time for a casual meal with the kids: specials are yummie. Thurs, Fri & Sat nights are interesting & fun karoke experiences. Favorites: Chicken Pot Pie & Lamb Burger.
Everything is amazing... – This is hand down one of the best all-around restaurants I have been to - the price, food, and atmosphere are unbeatable...
Hope it never changes...
Wonderful place, good solid diner food with a twist or two. Cheerful and polite staff, clean bathrooms, good service at a good value. The karaoke night was an unforgettable experience, an absolute delight. This place is fun, friendly, and a treat to go to!
Comfort Food in Red Hook – This shining star in Red Hook, serves of some of the finest diner standards -- the grilled cheese is to die for -- but with enough sophistication to keep you coming back. (You can bypass the fries for a heap of greens with a tasty vinaigrette or swap milk for soy in your latte!) The decor is crisp and unusual. Check out the hand-drawn "seaman's tattoo" wallpaper in the bathroom! Thursday and Friday nights, a bar crowd fills the diner. Are they there for the homemade sourmash in the bourbon sours? Or the transvestite DJ hosting Karaoke? You'll have to visit yourself, to find out.
