Junior’s Restaurant – more than just cheesecake. Really!
386 Flatbush Avenue Ext (near Lafayette Avenue), Brooklyn, New York
B,Q,N,R to Dekalb Avenue or the #2, 3, 4 or 5 to Nevins Street
Hands down, one of the BEST places for a good, strong drink! They don’t offer beers on tap, but have a really nice selection of bottled beers and lots of alcohol. Everyone knows about Junior’s cheesecake, so we won’t get into that. This place offers so much more. The bartenders and wait staff are experienced and uniformed. Also, breakfast at Junior’s is an absolute favorite. Come early to enjoy sounds from the big band era and get treated like royalty. Junior’s is one of our favorite places anytime – breakfast, lunch, dinner or just for drinks. Dining is good for families, friends, business meetings and any occasion. We find it’s most crowded on Mother’s Day.
The menu selection is wide offering mostly old fashioned American fare. We recommend the lobster roll, the salmon club sandwich (swap out potato salad for collard greens or something else), buffalo shrimp appetizer (unique and just delicious), crab cake appetizer or dinner, catfish appetizer or dinner, Buffalo wings, Thai wings. There’s a lot more to enjoy as well.
By the way, breakfast is served all day, and late kitchen hours (until 1am) are available Fridays and Saturdays only.
Mon-Thurs 630am – 12am, Fri-Sat 630am – 1am, Sun 630am – 12am
Good (This place is sure to offer a dish you’ll find special enough to come back for)! We can’t get enough of our favorites including the buffalo wings with sauce on the side, catfish finger appetizer, buffalo shrimp appetizer, lobster roll entree, salmon blt sandwich, great burgers (beef and turkey), crab cake entree.
Higher-end (Makes everyone comfortable, always pleasant, attentive and efficient)
Good ($30 – $60 pp) You’ll definitely get appetizer, entree, dinner and some of their famously delicious cheesecake if you spend in this range
Good (Comfortable, creative) General atmosphere is pretty festive any day or time of the week. We love Junior’s during holidays too. The decorations, especially around Christmas/New Year are warm and classic. Mother’s Day is most crowded, and most holidays have a long line for cheesecake, but SOOO worth it!
