This was a favorite restaurant when we lived in New Jersey. Not living there anymore, but we still return for visits and that includes returning to our favorite local pub. Great atmosphere - especially if seated downstairs. That's a dining area that most people are...not aware of. I understand it is under new management, but very little has changed. The only change I am aware of is that the long-time waiter, John, is no longer there. That's a shame because he was truly one of the most outstanding waiters of all time.More

Nice choice of seating year round. Fireplace downstairs in winter, the enclosed porch in fall and in nice weather they put out tables outside. The pub food offerings are a little more pricey then others but somewhat reliable. Specials are interesting and the menu does...change from time to time. The mussels, burgers and french dip have always been consistent.More

I ordered the fish of the day which was scallops. I didn’t pay enough attention to the description. It never occurred to me that a chef would take a mild, delicate, sweet protein like a scallop and over power it with excessive spice. I could...barely taste the scallop which is such a shame. The savior of the meal was the blueberry cobbler. Delicious!More

This place is very comfortable and cozy with a nice fireplace in the back room and also pleasant seating on an enclosed porch with windows. Food is good, standard pub fare and nice wait staff. Very popular with locals

The Cranford Hotel is a lovely quiet restaurant locate in the center of Cranford. They keep their menu current with lots of interesting specials. The updated drink list is season appropriate and yummy!! Sharing dishes allows you to try extra items!! They have interesting appetizers...and when you just want a burger they're really good too!More

The atmosphere in The Cellar is great. It can get crowded but the room handles the noise well. Always a great list of craft brews on tap, many from NJ brewers. The selection changes regularly. It is so hard to pick something other than a...burger. They are so good.More

Few restaurants are open for Monday lunch, but this place is. We have a nice lunch next to the fireplace on a very cold day. We were the only ones there for lunch. The waitress was very nice and helpful. We both had excellent soup--onion...and cream of mushroom, and calamari. It was supposed to be an appetizer, but the serving was enormous, a whole meal in itself.More

Dined here for lunch recently on a very cold day. Thing 1: Asked to be seated somewhere warm - got closest table to the fireplace! Thing 2: Asked to substitute tater tots for the french fries - YES! Thing 3 Food was decent. Recommend. We...enjoyed the reuben and a hamburger. Honestly I am a sauerkraut lover and have had the best in Germany and here in the US at a few places. This was not the best but the overall experience was lovely: food, atmosphere and service.More

The staff at this pub were the best. Friendly and attentive. The kitchen put out some gross food. Luckily they did not make us pay for the food. Still left a nice tip for the floor staff. Skip this place if your hungry.
