“Terrible Service, Mediocre Food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

I went to Schellenger's for restaurant week and was very disappointed. I believe Robert Irvine and Restaurant Impossible would have a FIELD DAY in this place. The decor was ridiculous--the food was mediocre--and the staff was slow and unpleasant. I asked for water with my meal and was given a 4 oz glass--and told I could not have a bigger glass because they ran out and they were not allowed to put pitchers on the table. We were seated right away but ended up there for over 2 hours due to extremely poor service. While my friends ordered regular meals (off the restaurant week menu) I ordered a simple salad--i still waited over 40 minutes for it. The food was not at all worth the wait. I do not recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good service along with good food.

Food was amazing.The only issue was the glasses were small and there were no free refills. Overall a great dining experience...will definitely be back.

“Just Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

My family visited Schellenger's this summer for dinner. It is decorated top to bottom in nautical type theme which is cute for a seafood restaurant. The service was ok, not the best, not the worst. The food was just ok as well - nothing special.

“Had a nice time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Another pretty cool little restaurant in Jersey. It was decorated from head to toe with ocean-like stuff. The food was pretty good also. I was a little skeptical when we first came, but I left very impressed.
