In order to get to The Honorable William Wall, you have to take two boats and pay $20. That might sound annoying—and that’s because it kind of is. But the trip only takes about 30 minutes, and, once you get here, this place feels like your own private floating clubhouse. It’s a houseboat anchored off Ellis Island, and it has an outdoor deck with tables, astroturf, and a little bar. It also has an extremely good view of Manhattan, and there’s a nice little indoor area that feels like the lobby of a Holiday Inn circa 1992. The main reason we like this place, however, is because it’s BYO food. You can bring a steak. Or a lobster. Or both, in addition to 40 packs of Skittles.

Review

Pilot is a restaurant/bar on a boat in Brooklyn Bridge Park, and it’s a great place to eat oysters outside (as long as you don’t get seasick).

Grand Banks review image
Review

If the Queen Mary just ended up being a nicely appointed tug boat loaded with alcohol and raw oysters, you’d have Grand Banks. Load up on ceviche and fried veggies, just make sure you aren’t prone to motion sickness.

The Dead Rabbit is part cocktail bar, part restaurant, and the best place to drink in FiDi.
