Our visit to JJ Bitting Brewing Co. tonight was a disappointment. We have visited it one time before about a year ago and had a good meal.Our server was very attentive and pleasant. We started the meal with an Oatmeal Stout that was great but that is about the best thing I can say about our meal. We ordered the... More

I love this bar, chicken quesadilla and raspberry beer is of the hook. We stop by weekly. It is an old train station transformed to a bar...got to check it out. Best spot in Woodbridge.

This is our go-to place for ribs and sit down service in a casual atmosphere. One of the few breweries in the local area, JJ's offers a dependably excellent selection of food and beer.

Have been at Bitting's multiple times and have yet to have anything more than an average dining experience. Food is just OK. There are a good brew pub and their Avenel Amber is my husband's usual staple-but their food doesn't amaze. The place does has a certain charm with a railroad theme interior. (Right by the Woodbridge stop of New... More

We like to come here when in the Woodbridge area. Never had a bad experience. The staff is always friendly and attentive. Love the ribs which are fall off the bone and delicious. Other dishes we have tried were ample sized and yummy. Their Victoria's Golden Ale is very drinkable. All in all this is a pretty good reasonably priced... More

After taking a Woodbridge Historical Tour, we decided to continue the historial adventure with dinner at J.J. Bitting, which is housed in a converted feed depot right next to the train tracks. The restaurant has lots of wood and antique lights all around the center portion which houses the beer brewing equipment. We had the 1/2 rack of ribs and... More

Very nice selection of beer and pretty good food too. The ribs were terrific. We were there while they were having a party and with everything going on the service was great.

The J.J. Bitting Brewing Company has been in Woodbridge, NJ near the railroad station for quite awhile. The food is barely fair and my favorites are never on the menu. Service is fine and the atmosphere is interesting. The huge brewing vats are in the center of the restaurant which makes it interesting the first few times you are there.... More

I've been here many times and enjoy the beer selection (it is a brewpub after all). The food isn't bad either -- best described as new age pub fare. The only downside I'll note is that they would be well advised to pay more attention to cleaning and maintenance. The restrooms in particular are dirty and poorly maintained.
