Went for brunch and wasn't disappointed. The food came was served hot and tasted fresh. Our party had the Chorizo Hash, Bacon, Brunch Mac Cheese (comes with a fried egg), French toast sticks and Brunch burger. All of the dishes (except French toast) were topped off with a fried egg. The cocktails were an excellent addition and the service was... More

It is definitely busy for afternoons and evenings. But the place was nice for a Sunday afternoon. Good crowd, decent drinks, though a little on the pricey side. Clean place but the usual small type place for NYC>

Best margarita this trip! Friendly and efficient barman. A friend joined us briefly before leaving for a business dinner so just asked for water, which was graciously served. The barman noticed I drank mine quickly and was instantly over with another one! What more could I ask for?

Tried Sweet Afton with buddies on a quiet Tuesday night. Bar scene was busy so we chose the quiet garden in back, much more serene, with people dining. Enjoyed the house white burgundy and pinot noir while my buddies tasted mezcal and bourbon based specials. Sampled the house special pickles, chicken wings, and brussel sprout salads, all top notch- and... More

I came in here for my second ever visit earlier this year. They check everyone at the door no mater how old you are. The pub itself is small and very crowded and I am not sure if I will go back again. Organization and management could do a bit better in satisfying their guests.

The drinks are ok and the food is mediocre. The service is terrible. Just go for drinks and not food. The music can be terribly loud.

It is a little on the darkish side, but it's a nice local place. Very friendly crowd. Nice service. Decent drinks. Priced for the neighborhood.

The staff is great and I love that the crowd is not all the same. It can get very busy but it's always fun.

Sweet Afton is deservedly popular, especially on weekend evenings and the happy-hour crowd. The clientele is largely Astoria hip, which isn't as cartoonishly over-the-top as you might find in Williamsburg, but it's settled down now that the place has been there a few years and isn't brand-new anymore. I've had some excellent burgers and love their fried pickle chips probably... More

Can't say anything about the food, and certainly the atmosphere is cool (borderline hipster but still acceptable to normal humans), but what really blows it away are the cocktails. Can't say I've had this good and reasonably-priced (and generous) concoctions anywhere in recent memory on this side or the other of the Atlantic. Highly recommended!
