Went here with my parents and was surprised to find asian food with a western name. The Chinese food is actually quite authentic and pretty good. I wasn't crazy about the salted duck though. But the shredded beef and the shrimp was very good. Espresso ice cream was also something I'd go back for. The prices weren't bad at all.... More

I am sure many who dine here have a great variety of reactions - and all good. The menu appeals to the children (and the child in adults) by providing choices reminiscent of soda fountains from the last century ... (yes, the 1950s and 1960s were in the last century). This includes shakes, egg creams, great sandwiches and desserts -... More

Went here tonight after reading the reviews posted. Wow! The service was too notch, a woman nearby dropped her credit card and they were right there to pick it up for her. You feel like a special guest the way the servers are there any time you need anything. Super friendly too. I ordered a dish off the light menu,... More

My 10-year-old daughter and I recently had lunch here. She had the lo mein, $6.99 (from the children's menu) and I ordered the chicken teriyaki, $10.99. The waiter was nice enough to substitute broccoli instead of the beans with her lunch. Mine came with miso soup, sushi, salad and an egg roll. Both meals were delicious. Her lunch, also, came...

LOVE Baumgart's. We used to go to the one in Englewood, NJ until we moved to West Orange. Terrific food and it comes pretty quickly. I ordered the shrimp with walnuts and it was soooo TASTY. I'm giving them one star less because they used to have these fabulous desserts but this time there was only a few to pick... More

This is a local place for us and all the servers are really into making sure the kids are taken care of. The kids all love going there, I guess the home made ice cream that is included in the kids meal is one reason they all get excited. Food choices are great and fresh. Grat Family spot.

Eaten here several times. Service nice. Food is ok but not great. Sometimes too many kids running around.
