Casual
Morgan’s Brooklyn Barbecue brings you the very best food, drink, and atmosphere in the Lone Star tradition. Brisket, ribs, and pork smoked ‘low and slow’ in fire-burning pits, but with a craftsmanship and attention to quality and detail that can only come from people dedicated to hospitality and the art of Texas-style bar-b-cue.

If beer and BBQ were all Morgan’s did, we would already be the best restaurant serving ‘cue in the Brooklyn area. Add to that an original menu that features regional classics done right—house-smoked queso, tacos and sliders, pecan pie—alongside a deep well of liquor and beer knowledge provided by a staff that knows and cares about having a good time…well, you’ve got yourself not just a restaurant but a destination.

Get there early, we sell-out often, and stay late, because we always have a good time.

A good experience. Seating was tight and the place was a bit noisy. Food was good. Brisket okay, ribs nice. The Mexican corn was the standout item. A great selection of whiskeys.

This food is very heavy, meaty and salty. I wish they had more options; for example you can get chicken and waffles but not fried chicken by the piece. Everything comes with wads of strongly flavored meat: brisket, chili, etc. Definitely have to be in the mood for it.

Cocktails are great - try the bloody Mary with a rasher of bacon in it. The cord bread is excellent, flecked with red and green peppers and served with honey mustard.

It's got a woodsy, sunny feel to it; can get noisy.

EXPENSIVE! I paid almost $100 for brunch this past weekend, and we only had one cocktail each.

My party was late but more then 40 minutes yet they still accommodated us and sat us down once they arrived. Service was great and our waiter was friendly and very attentive.
I’ll come back again.
Also we were going to Celine Dion concert after and the restaurant was playing her songs. 😊

This was my first time coming to Morgan’s, and the experience was bleh! Honestly, Dino BBQ is better! The waiter took a long time serving us, then the hostess in the front started yelling at the waiter to take the order of another person, and it was a little rude (that made me uncomfortable). I had the bacon curd ribs, longhorn mac & cheese, and Mexican street corn. I wasn’t impressed, and I’ve gone to plenty of southern food/BBQ places. I won’t be coming back.

The food was amazing. The Mac and cheese was incredible. I made a reservation on 2/15 for a table of 2 and when I arrived I asked them if it can be changed to a table for 3 and they easily accommodated us. We sat down and ordered and the food came out very quickly. Everything tasted great and we will gladly be going back

Great BBQ and conveniently located next to the Barclay's Center. We went before a concert and, unsurprisingly, it was pretty busy and crowded. It took them a while to get us our food and they forgot one of the items we ordered. I'd recommend this place before any event at Barclay's so long as you're aware that it can get hectic.

The food was excellent service was amazing bartender was a little bit curt and short sighted in her approach towards happy hour drink price after she pretty much forced me too pay the bill prior to my table being ready… Rest of the experience was awesome

We arrived early after an event at the Barclays. Our reservation was for 5pm so our table wasn’t ready when we walked in at 4:20. The host was super apologetic and promised to try and seat us ASAP. So we sat at the bar. The space is cute, kinda urban rustic. Full wall of windows facing Flatbush ave and St Marks. There are a few high top tables with bar stools along the windows, the bar wraps around a little and in the back there are booths and tables. Dimly lit but it’s a bite casual spot.

True to his word we were seated early and the waiter quickly came to take our orders. Drinks were good, I had the Ginger Fresca which was really good - ginger ale, vodka and lemonade. Food was good. Their specialty is BBQ (and bourbon- their list of bourbons and whiskey took up a whole wall near our booth). But the BBQ was well cooked, not necessarily well seasoned... my pulled pork was a little dry and served naked, so I had to add bbq sauce. Mashed potatoes were ok. Collard greens were ok. All needed a little something. One of my friends had fried chicken with collard greens and Mac and cheese. It wasn’t what we expected: the fried chicken breast was just a cutlet, and the Mac and cheese was not baked, but served soupy on the plate. I would probably add a bbq chicken option to the menu. Anyway It was a cute spot and service was good but I probably wouldn’t go back.

Morgan's Brooklyn Barbecue was excellent from start to finish. We were visiting Manhattan from the UK and had tickets to see the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center. A little google search and I decided to make pre-game dinner reservation at Morgan's and I am so glad I did! It was a good job we had a reservation as it was a busy spot. We were put on a table by the window as a big group reservation was in the back and our host said it would be nicer for us to be away from the big group. The food was excellent and and service throughout was nice and friendly. Only a short walk from the Barclays Center it was a great start to our evening. I would't hesitate to recommend Morgan's!

Most of the food was very good (and the only thing we really didn't like, the chef insisted on replacing with something that was excellent) and the service at the table was very attentive. But because we had arrived really early we sat at the bar and I am not sure what was up with the bartender - he might not have been their normal bartender because it seemed like he was making an effort to not make eye contact with anyone, which made it really difficult to get a drink.

This is my favorite BBQ spot. Brisket, Pulled Pork, mach and cheese with bacon are all great. Sometimes the mac and cheese w bacon comes with a side of bacon, sometimes it doesn't.

Good western fare. Quick service. The ribs fell off the bone and the coleslaw was nice and creamy. The restaurant was packed with locals when I arrived, always a good sign. Only downside was being served a cherry in my Old Fashioned instead of orange peel!

The food was not very flavorful. My family of 4 had cornbread, brisket nachos, sausage, candied bacon, old school Mac and cheese, and the 36 layer cake. All dishes were mediocre. Not horrible but not a place I would return to.
