I met friends in this location filled with hotels, shopping and movie theaters. I ordered the Chipotle chicken enchiladas but being from California, I know what enchiladas taste like and these were just okay. The stuffed mushrooms were delicious as was the spinach dip and thin pizza slices.

The food is good, quick service. The salmon and the mashed potatoes was very good, big portions and the best part if you don't need to wait too much. Good atmosphere. The desserts are really big portions enough to share with the family.

This is my 3 Rd time visiting this location. The service continues to be horrible. The management continues to not care. The only bright spot is their greeter who is smiling and friendly. The drinks are weak and the bartenders are over whelmed. I love the food but hate the service.

It is just a place to eat. Nothing good, nothing bad. Bartender could have been a little more on top of things, but, hey, its Jersey. you kinda get what you get.

Decent atmosphere, but food just so-so. I tried the Buffalo wings and the French dip sandwich. The wings were just okay; I could tell they had been dredged in corn starch before hitting the deep fryer to give then a nice crispiness, but the sauce wasn't spicy enough to be called "Buffalo," and had rather a sweet flavor. The French... More
