The grassy, spacious outdoor area of this bumping Williamsburg hangout is an apt setting for a cold Bud and a house burger, finished with pickled onions, American cheese and special sauce. Once you’ve had your fill, you can challenge your bargoing buds to a match of outdoor Ping-Pong.

Really enjoy going to Freehold! It has everything you could ever ask for, literally. I went for a friend's birthday on a warm Saturday toward the end of February. Freehold feels like venues within a venue. When I walked in, I found myself in a large form of a coffee shop. A large area with plenty of different options for seating, tables and chairs, etc. Lots of people on laptops, reading, it's really bright in the space with sky light windows. Very open and airy space - interesting and hard to come by in Williamsburg, Brooklyn!
Toward the back of the space was a separate area - we spoke to a hostess who brought us through the bar area (another huge space) and then into a dining area (another separate room). We had a private table - more like 2 tables to accommodate the 15-20 people attending the birthday. Some people ordered food, some people drank, some people didn't order anything, people could come and go as they pleased and there were no minimums on the brunch (fab!). There was table service here too with a waiter. Also DJ playing so there was fun music all afternoon...
We stayed into the evening and the bar area got busier and busier. Lots of great music, fun dancing and overall a blast. There's lots of fun activities to do as well. There's a photo booth on premises and a huge outdoor deck and seating area for additional space and fun. I'll definitely be returning to Freehold ASAP for a fun night out in the summer.
I've been to Freehold several times, but it wasn't until the last time I went that I realized what a diverse venue it is! I thought it was just a café, but then I met friends for brunch and discovered it has a whole restaurant in back. The place is HUGE. While we were there, a birthday party for toddlers was happening in an adjoining room separated by a thick curtain. The room had high ceilings, huge windows and lots of light. I ordered shrimp and grits, which was a great amount of food, and my friend ordered the lobster roll, which comes with fries. There were $5 Bloody Marys! The space had lots of tables for people with laptops, and apparently the whole place turns into a great bar at night when people dance on the tables. Amazing.
