Place was closed...has been for weeks apparently. Yet I was able to confirm my reservation from OpenTable.
Closed No notice
IT WAS CLOSED...not a good look for a date.
I showed up at 1228 for my 1230 reservation and the restaurant was closed. No notice on the door. No update on social media. Needless to say i was very disappointed.
Enjoyed the food. The service was spot on.
Great place to just relax and enjoy your guests.
We will be back.
Our experience started a bit slowly....The outside seating area was relatively crowded and the service was very slow...Drinks took awhile and our appetizer, even longer. Then, as if a switch were flipped, the service was more attentive, meals and additional drinks came faster, making the end of the evening far better than the beginning! Unfortunately, the unsteady performance led to the mediocre review.
Food is amazing. I was with a party of 7 and everyone enjoyed their meal. The big issue is service. We sat outside and it took us 45 mins to get our apps and then another 45 mins to get entrees. We asked for the check and 30 mins later we still didn't have it. The food is very good but because of the lack of servers there it was cold when it came out. We saw many people come in and sit, but they ended up leaving because no one came to wait on them after 20 mins. The poor server knew it was an issue and apologized many times. It was the servers 4th day on the job and he was in charge of the whole outside that had about 35 people on it.
Such a bummer since the outdoor space was good for a casual dinner on a Friday. Unfortunately service was awful. We waiting for over an hour just for spinach dip and 2 kids Mac and cheeses. We cancelled our entree orders since we couldn’t wait. Multiple tables were getting up to leave. They had issues with kitchen staff that night so perhaps this is a one off. But their waitstaff and management didn’t even handle or really apologize for the delay. Not sure I will be going back.
Awesome location with delicious food, live music, wonderful atmosphere and excellent service. Can’t recommend it enough.
Dining outdoors on an early spring day was nice. Food was very basic and plain. Burger overcooked.
Service was fairly good on a day they probably had a bigger than normal crowd.
Would only recommend it for drinks or as a place to dine outside
Had to order twice to get a burger medium rare. Felt bad for server .
Neighborhood gem. Quiet evening, popular bar and outstanding bartender. New menu still being tweaked but everything good. Hamburgers are a big hit. Roasted brussel sprouts different and tasty — could have made a meal out of them. Pizza... ok if in Midwest but otherwise take a pass. Staff is great.
Date Night with my wife.
The food was terrible and I feel ill. The croquettes were ice cold inside. They were returned only to get semi warm calamari. The tacos were cold and the steak was bloody. Never going back. The server was very nice though.
I met a friend here for an early dinner on a Tuesday and the joint was completely empty. There were a few people at the bar when we left, but were surprised that it was so empty (and I tend to eat at this time in restaurants). There is a great happy hour deal on drinks and each day has a special food option. Overall, the bar pie we had was nothing to remark about, but we shared and really enjoyed a kale salad--that was definitely something I wish I could eat more frequently!
Food was great. Mimosas and Bloody Marys were even better. Definitely will be back for brunch.
Food was not good for brunch.. No one else was there and try weren’t ready for us they said they just opened and it was 40 min after opening time. Just wasn’t for me. Might be better as a bar at night but not a good brunch spot.
Cool spot! Great drink specials and your typical bar food. Would like to come back and see what it’s like for brunch. Will definitely go again for happy hour!
Excellent food & service. Chorizo & Brussels sprouts appetizer is delicious. The burgers are big and juicy.
The service was good, the food tasted good, but 2 of my friends felt sick after dinner.
Great to watch any sports - plenty of TV's and Trivia
Great location to view the Sunday Footballs Games; they play trivia during commercials and give our prizes. Energetic and Fun for all family members.
Hanging with friends who flew in for my wedding. They wanted to experience NJ
Always a friendly fun place. Service is excellent. The wines are first rate.
Service was exceptional for Sunday brunch. Food was good and they were very accommodating for the young grandchildren.
such a great atmosphere and the food was delicious. The service was good but a little slow and there was a table of loud mouth behind us, once they left it was amazing. Michelle who helped with the reservations was amazing and accommodating...I will definitely be back!
The server was the best part of the experience and give him 5 stars... food was greasy, no flavor, just bland and unappetizing. Restaurant focused more on fitting into the neighborhood than actually producing the food that matched the decor and vibe. Drinks were solid. We were charged for the dinner that I sent back.. was offered free round but it landed on our bill. Just not going back for a second try.
I like this place a lot, always diferents promo like tacos with margarita ;)
Good burger, chicken tacos and brussel sprouts with chorizo. Service friendly and efficient. Will definitely go back.
The service was prompt and very good. Our server was very friendly and knew the menu well. He was comfortable making recommendations and his suggestions we're spot-on with our tastes. The food was not five star but it suited our expectations as being more of a bar food style restaurant. They have a nice outdoor seating area which goes well on a nice summer afternoon or early evening with a couple of drinks.
We went for an after work get together particularly for the outdoor seating. Seating and outdoor was very small but we made due. Drink specials and happy hour were lacking and was mediocre. We would seek out other places before revisiting for a big group get together again.
Everything was okay - the service, the food...until the DJ showed up. For a Thursday night it was exceptionally loud, because the restaurant was near empty. We moved to the outside area, so that we could talk and could still barely hear each other. Would have enjoyed it more if it was crowded and drowned down the level of sound.
Took 30 minutes for us to get our drinks and over an hour for our food. It was nice to sit outside, but I’m not going out of my way to come back!
super very nice everything and nice people around
My friends and I enjoyed our meals very much! The environment is friendly and upbeat, but not so loud that you can not carry on a conversation. The burgers we had were cooked as ordered and very very yummy! Great wine suggested by our server was enjoyed by all.
We ate here two years ago when it first opened. Clearly, we understood that there might be slower service, etc since they were new. However, two years later, service wasn’t any better. Our food order was taken after sitting for 15 minutes and it wasn’t really crowded. Wrong drinks were delivered to our table, wrong entrée delivered with chicken instead of shrimp, shrimp Po’ Boy was tasteless, without sauce, the nachos were made with cheese whiz and a cheaper type of tortilla chip. Overall, not impressed and will not be back.
Food sucks every time, and the service is poor. First time I gave here the waiter purposely charged me for refills on soda even though he wasn't suppose to. He also spilt the bacon dish all over me too. This time, I asked for cheese for the tacos, and the waitor couldn't understand me and brought the wrong cheese twice. Also I don't understand why you wouldn't have regular taco cheese at a restuarant if your serving tacos there.
Needless to say this place sucks and I never want to volunatrily go there again.
Although we live only minutes away, this was our first visit. I'll be back often. The food was excellent, casual but not too casual, prices are reasonable and the service was excellent. I highly recommend this spot.
Very nice environment. The stuffs are friendly and the foods are really good. We enjoyed a lot. Highly recommended.
