Good food

Went here with a friend for dinner. We both had a pasta/seafood special which was delicious! We shared oysters for an appetizer. They tasted fresh, but had a fair bit of shell in them. We had tiramisu for dessert which was very good. We both had martinis and there are quite a few to chose from... read more

This has become our destination when we or friends are in the mood for incredible lamb chops; but there is so much more on the menu. Set in historic Bordentown, this comfy eatery with a classic bar offers a great deal; including warm and friendly service. If you are in the area, highly recommend you give it a try.

Relaxed atmosphere generally good service and fair prices. Bordentown has several good restaurant choices; this is as comfortable as an old shoe. There is nearby parking, a rarity among Bordentown restaurants.

We have dined here many times over the years. We like it so much that we were married here 16 years ago. The menu is incredible, as is the food itself. The service has also been excellent.

Bordentown has a long list of restaurants so parking can be a problem in this popular & historic little town in the evenings. Luckily we went early and were able to park in the nearby public parking. We ate in the downstairs dining room but there is another room upstairs if you choose. Our waiter was excellent and made great... More

We spent the night in Bordentown and happened upon this lovely place. Very interesting beer selection and a huge Martini list, just a shame I couldn't try them all! Food menu also looked very good though we didn't eat there.

The food is very good they cooked everything how I liked it. The prices are a little high but it's not so bad but it's worth like since the quality is so good. The staff is very friends and nice. The inside outside has a nice old school feel to it. I don't drink so I can't comment on the... More
