We ate here a few times this summer. The ambiance of the back garden patio is terrific, it's lush and twinkly and full of picturesque things. Our wait staff was erratic though, first we had a young male waiter who was delightful, and the next two times an older woman served us who was fairly grumpy and hardly did the... More

I was delighted to attend my second-cousin's beach wedding followed by an amazing wedding reception at The Gables in September. The Gables offered a combination of indoor and outdoor dining. The butlered appetizers were delicious, including small "pitchers" of butternut squash soup (the best I've ever had!), crab cakes, scallops wrapped in bacon, mushroom puffs and more. After welcoming the... More

The Inn is beautiful and romantic for a 50th birthday celebration. My husband said his bone-in filet of beef was "the best he'd ever had!" I. The birthday girl was disappointed almost from the start. When we made the reservations my husband mentioned it was my 50th birthday and we wanted the best table for 2. When we arrived we... More

We had a wonderful dinner for my birthday. We say outside and it was just gorgeous. Very romantic. The food was excellent too. I had salmon that was incredible and my husband had short ribs that were some of the best he has had. Really expensive though. And honestly there are plenty of great restaurants in New Jersey and Philadelphia... More

Expensive but justly so as it's a phenomenal place for a special occasion. Atmosphere is incredible! Back patio is the preference but the outside front porch is beautiful too if you prefer outside dining. Inside rooms of this home turned restaurant are exquisitely decorated. Wanna impress a date...take them here. Food as well as ambiance is first class!

Excellent restaurant...great atmosphere, service and food. We had the tasting menu which was really good. Felt like a different world out on back patio...beautifully decorated. Our waitress was very good and explained the menu and options. Magical night!
