We love Hapgoods! We were just surprised that it was a limited menu and we were not advised of this. This should be posted or advised when making reservation. Service was a little confusing. We got our appetizers and then 2 minutes later they brought our main course which got cold because we were still finishing our salad. We still love Hapgoods though.

Beef Strogonoff was good but the garden salad with chicken was not. The greens were the stringy ones that I can't stand and the chicken was tough and dry. The waitress told us they make it in the morning!!!!! and it tasted like it. I NEVER leave chicken and I left that.
Nice decore but need to work on prep.

My son and daughter-in-law, along with some friends, enjoyed Sunday Brunch at Hapgood’s, so my husband and I decided to give it a try. We should have gone for breakfast or lunch because dinner was “eh.” My husband had Chicken Parm over Pasta which were both over-cooked, and my entree of Beef Stroganoff over Pappardelle was very dry and lacking in flavor. The restaurant decor is casual and cozy—all-in-all very appealing! However, I was very surprised to find silverware wrapped in a small, thin paper napkin at dinner service. Why?

Great little byob place! The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Service was spot on. Our dinners were delicious, serving sizes were more than we could eat. I had the pan roasted salmon that came with mashed potatoes and sauteed veggies everything was done to perfection. I had the leftovers the next day! The price for the quality and quantity of food was excellent. The four of us will definitely be back!!

Hapgoods in Mountain Lakes is the perfect place to get together with your friends for a delicious brunch. We were delighted by the ambiance, the wait staff, and the delicious menu selections. The shrimp and grits were close to Savannah perfect! That and fresh brewed coffee? We'll be going back again, soon.

Went there on Saturday noon-ish for brunch. Lovely clean place in cute little town. Very quiet. Easy to park. Very nice brunch menu. Lots of space and easy to have a conversation. Food was fresh and well prepared. Very solid omelet. Accommodating on changes when I wanted to add meat to my veggie omelet. Minor complaint was that the Coffee mugs were tiny, the toast was one piece (instead of two) and the fried potatoes were not well done as I ordered. Overall, the service was a bit scattered. They didn't refill water or coffee and I had to ask multiple times. For some reason my waiter filled the tiny coffee mugs only halfway each time making it more necessary to ask over and over again for more coffee. Bigger mugs and making sure staff is a bit more well trained would give Hapgoods 5 stars from me.

Hapgood's is a hidden gem in the heart of Mountain Lakes-one of our favorite places to eat! It features a cozy, casual setting with excellent food and service. Lunch menu includes homemade soups, sandwiches and salads (our favorite is the Baby Kale salad). The sweet potato fries are not to be missed! Dinners feature gourmet level food with daily specials that are out of this world. Prices are reasonable and it's BYOB so it makes the evening a great night out. There are some larger tables for groups making it a nice place to celebrate a birthday or special occasion. The staff is extremely attentive and friendly. Highly recommend!

After being there for breakfast I thought it would be a good spot for a casual dinner with friends. The place is cute and it’s a BYO, and the service was fine. But, the food was pretty so-so. Fish tacos seemed like breaded fish sticks with slaw on them. Short ribs were dry. Calamari seemed like it came out of a frozen package. It was very disappointing given the good breakfast I had previously. With the positives, I’ll try it again, but will stick to something basic like a burger

Service was excellent. It was freezing when we got there, and the server turned "off the air conditioning" (it was 35 degrees out on a winter's day-12.29.18, but the a/c was on!) When the air from the vents was still too much on our table, we asked to move tables to a warmer location. The server couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. The ambiance could have been enhanced by turning on the fireplace-it was a nice night for a cozy fire, but the manager said no. The food was outstanding. We will go back again and again. More people need to go to this restaurant. We couldn't have been happier.

The restaurant was relatively quite for a Saturday evening and I am afraid to give it a good review for fear it will start to be discovered! Food was very good and service was on point. We would recommend and will return.

First time for dinner at this fine neighborhood place. Had breakfast and brunch many times previously. Service tonight was absolutely great. Steaks were done perfectly. Unfortunately, we were dining rather late and they ran out of bread pudding.

Had a delicious breakfast with a friend. She always wanted to try Hapgoods. I’ve been a number of times. She loved it as well and can’t wait to go back. I had the avocado toast and my friend had the western omelet. Both were delicious with an attractive presentation. Wait staff very sweet and attentive.
