Nothing outstanding but always very good. It's a little pricey but not outrageous. You can go for lunch but I recommend dinner you'll probably have a better experience.

The kind of place you want to be on a cold Winter night, the bar is warm and welcoming, and the Dining room has a huge fireplace that invites you in, the service for the 9 of us was very good and the food was as well, the raw oysters were the best I've had anywhere, the bread is baked... More

Went for dinner Saturday night. I had a grilled veal T-Bone which was wonderful, and my wife had Black Bass topped with Crabmeat, over Risotto, which was also great. Have yet to have a bad meal here.

I went here on a Thursday night while on business with a co-worker, staying at the nearby Holiday Inn. This was definitely a nice night out after a busy work week, and was a great quality and relaxing meal in a nice setting. We made reservations for 7pm, but first had drinks at the adjacent bar before asking to be... More

Met a couple of friends here for dinner last night. Has been over 10 years since we dined here and I was pleasantly surprised by the menu, the quality and quantity of food and the wait staff. The decor remains a little tired and dated, but still remains cozy. Our waitress gave us plenty of attention as we and anther... More

This long-time restaurant is a favorite for visitors to the charming town of Clinton. The food is basic family friendly, with something for everyone. They were very accommodating to my vegetarian request. I wish they would serve more seafood on the menu, and update the dessert menu. It is worth a visit to enjoy a laid back meal with family...

We have lived in the area for 20 years and The Clinton House is one of our favorites. We love their Filet au Blue (filet mignon on top of a bed of mushrooms and sautéed onions and topped with chucks of blue cheese). It's one of the best steaks around. Can't beat their house salad with house dressing and their... More

The Clinton House is in need of an update. It's very dark inside as well. Food was not as up to par as it should be considering there are many other restaurants in Hunterdon County that serve unbelievably good food.

Clinton house is guaranteed good food! Meet family or friends for a Sunday meal, or a fresh bowl of soup and salad with homemade dressing! Everything's included with your entree! Love their steaks and German special, wienerschnitzel! Atmosphere is also wonderful! Great bar as well!

We picked this as 1/2 way point to meet friends for a Sunday Lunch. We were sat by a wonderful fireplace. As we looked at the menu we realized they were dinner(they serve dinner all day Sunday). We decided to stay, and were not disappointed. Highlights were the Mussel Marinara for me, and chicken with artichoke for my wife. Service... More
