We sat a table for four in the outside bar area. The food was very good, the portions were large. The drinks were OK - one of two mixed drinks was so weak I think they forgot the alcohol. The biggest complaint was that management allows patrons to smoke at the tables near the outdoor bar. There are large signs... More

Went to the Stage House for a special family event on July 21. Food was great, ambiance is pleasant, and the staff are doting. Thank you!

Had dinner last night on the patio. Our server was inexperienced and did not know the menu at all. When we asked for the half priced drink and appetizer menu he said we had to sit in a bar chair for that. We found it ridiculous that because we were sitting at the table a foot away we had to...

We sat on the patio, enjoyed a wonderful meal listening to the sounds of a live steel drum player and female singer. (The name of the twosome is DNA) Our server was great (Jason). We felt like we were in one of our favorite Caribbean restaurants.

We recently went to a party here, and the service was excruciatingly slow. Our lunch ended at 4:40PM! Needless to say, it was almost dinner! The food was good when it arrived, but the waiters seemed terribly inexperienced. Waters took orders for drinks and then didn't know who ordered what.

Tini Tuesday is the best. Outdoor Barbeque is fun - and good food. Place to be on a Spring, Summer or Fall Night - outdoors is always nice. Good bands on weekends.

Nice menu and weekly specials. During the summer, free barbeque outside! Check this one out. Parking could be tight, especially on weekends.

The old building it's housed in has charm, but I couldn't believe how nonchalant the service was and how mediocre the food was. Our waiter started out pleasant telling us all about the different beers they offered. We ordered at 2:25. At 2:59 the appetizers were brought by a food runner. No extra plates. No waiter in sight. No one... More

We were in NJ visiting family and friends and they suggested we all have dinner at "The Tavern" as the locals call it. We had a reservation and were promptly seated. The decor and space have a wonderful charm of the past and the framed openings to view the old wall construction was very cool and made for a conversation... More
