There are two things that people remember about Buttermilk Channel in Brooklyn: their hearty American comfort food and their weekend brunches. In fact, the place is so busy during brunch that they don’t even take reservations during that time anymore. But that fact alone says a lot about the restaurant’s good quality comfort food and their overall customer service.

Sporting a typical Brooklyn neighborhood feel, Buttermilk Channel is popular to families and groups of friends alike. They are well known for having one of the best fried chicken in town.
