Every time I have eaten here the food is great, but the service needs some serious improvement. And I am not talking about a one time experience. I have gone there several times over the past 4-5 years and the service experience has been the same every time. Doesn't matter if the restaurant is empty or full.

A great local restaurant with quality pub-style food, cold beer and excellent service. The pizzas and burgers are awesome!

Stopped here after a late working day on the mountain. Arrived at 7:45. Our order was taken within 15 minutes….40 minutes later our burgers arrived. It was the longest wait ever for a hamburger. Fortunately the burger was really good but I won't return because my time is too valuable.

Went with a buddy on a Friday night around 730... We were seated at a high pub table in the bar area. Very tight fit, but sufficient. Ordered the burgers and they were cooked properly and tasty... Waitress was courteous and accommodating. We also ordered the fried calamari which was also tasty, but the breading easily fell off so something... More

My husband and I went here to try a pub in Bernardsville. The bar at 6 PM was full with elderly locals who seemed visibly annoyed at new faces. These locals appear to nurse one drink all night. Right behind the bar is a row of tables making it near impossible to stand and have a drink especially when nasty... More

I keep trying this place simply for convenience, but it's consistently disappointing. Food is never great and the staff is very inexperienced and unfriendly. Burgers are never cooked the way I order and the pizza is terrible. Just last week I sent a pizza back to be cooked more and they forgot about it in the oven and I had... More

The crab Mac and cheese is to die for as is the mussels appetizer. Drinks are poured with a healthy pour. Service is fun and friendly. Would recommend

This is the kind of place you will enjoy enough to go at least once a week. It's a comfy place with friendly staff, great food and reasonable prices. Get a pizza, a crazy large burger or even their chicken pot pie, everything is delicious. They also have a great bar. Perfect for a quick meal, awesome for a nice... More

The Claremont Tavern is my favorite place to go for burgers and beer. The Claremont burger with tavern fries specifically is my favorite. There is something for everyone however including the vegetarians and vegans in my family.
