The restaurant is now closed. I found it not opened when I stopped by for lunch. When I had been here previously it was dingy,not crowed and looked like it was in need of care.

I had not been here in quite awhile as the restaurant started to dwindle. But I came across new reviews that seemed to indicate there was a change and it had improved. I went two weeks ago to find the bar open but the restaurant closed due to lack of a chef. I tried again this week and voila a... More

by the outside, one would think this place has been forgotten by time... not very impressive at all. but then again, they dont try to be pretentious. its a dive bar. no fancy linens or decor. just old wood and no frills. mostly locals drink here, and its a good place for saturday night, as there wont be drunken idiots...

Also known as Neshanic Inn. Though we live about 5 miles away, my wife and I have never been here before last night. We have friends who eat here at least twice a month and are always raving about it. The place is old but very well maintained and clean with a huge U-shaped bar in the front, with pool... More

Quiet and unassuming. You'll drive past it if your first adventure over to the inn (no sign outside...thats okay because my husband and I thought may be a township code). It's cute from the outside; reminds me of an old country feed store. The interior is very retro. It's worn but cool and clean. Our wait staff was so nice... More

Was that the best burger-like sandwich I ever had? Maybe it was! Tipping my hat to the new chef, staff and management(?) at the Inn. Yes, I did have to write a negative themed review some time ago and we stayed away (after the steady decline I noted in previous review). We decided to go back during some bad weather... More

Lovely local fun that you can't duplicate elsewhere. Always a consistently warm & local crowd that is just fun to talk whether you're married, single, local or just dropping by. Love it always.

I'm not a fan of the following negative review and hoped never to have to write it, because we enjoy their food when it is what is supposed to be. We've routinely dined at Neshanic Station a half dozen times a year or more, for the last 6 years. Early on, the food and service was consistently fantastic (the BBQ... More
