“The Finest Restaurant in Hunterdon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

A grand old historic site, warm, cozy, old beamed ceilings, perfect cocktails, and a delectable
cuisine ! Old succulent German classics; Sauerbraten, and Weiner Schnitzel perfectly executed
and served. The menu contains many other Time-tested classics in a perfect, ageless setting.

“Consistent old fashioned quality restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

Have visited this restaurant twice in the last year. It is a great old restaurant. And I mean that in terms of service in the types of food they serve and in the ambience of the place. This isn't a fancy place is just solid food. If there's any complaint it's that the prices are just a tad high. Our servers on both occasions were excellent.

“Great lunches too”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

When I lived nearby we ate at Clinton House often, especially after a fun TGIF gathering at the quaint bar. Dinner was always very good. So, now I came home for a visit and joined old friends there for lunch. Though a bit pricey for lunch, the portions justified the cost. If you crave a huge roast beef or turkey sandwich, this is the place! Lots of other great options, including Snapper Turtle soup with a bit of Sherry. Yum! Same for the Shrimp Bisque. Clinton is a charming town with its old mill and block of cute shops. Stroll around town and then dine at the Clinton House.

“Food is top-notch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

My husband and I have been going to the Clinton House for many years - it's always busy and you can count on the food being phenomenal - albeit a bit pricey. But it's worth it. Saturday night we popped in and ate at the bar - I'm doing a very restrictive diet and of course, they were completely accommodating. Had a delish salmon filet with a tarragon cream sauce and extra veggies, no starch. Yum. Hubby had their version of buffalo chicken tenders which he said were excellent as well. We entertained another couple and our friend from the U.K. back in June and had more of a formal meal - everyone was very pleased with their food.

“Fabulous Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We ate at the Clinton House with business colleagues last week. The whole dining experience was first class. You are made to feel welcome from the moment you arrive and nothing was too much trouble. The waitress who served us gave a list of salad dressings but the one I really wanted (raspberry vinegarette) was not mentioned. 'No problem' she said..'I make a great raspberry vinegarette so I will make you one'. It was sublime.

The entrees were awesome. I wanted my Filet Mignon cooked 'Pittsburg style' and it was done to perfection. The food was of the highest quality.

The building itself dates back over 100 years and it has a wonderful ambiance.

Finally, Bass beer on draught - what more can I say?

A really wonderful place to dine. Highly recommended by one slightly overweight UK food lover! I will return when I'm next in the USA.
