Very busy but accommodating place. Excellent beer selection. NY Strip steak was well cooked and delicious. Salad bar was also very clean and well stocked and maintained.

Very Good Food, definitely recommend. The prime rib, crab cakes, and all you can eat salad can all be ordered for around $26, which was delicious. The salad bar has tons of offerings including fresh local vegetables, croutons, breads, bacon, dressings, cheeses, crispy salad toppings, etc. Delicious reasonably priced restaurant. Only problem was that the waiter was very inattentive and... More

We come here quite frequently. The salad bar is always fresh, great choices of items to add to your salad and a selection of breads. Good start to an enjoyable meal. This last visit we both had the fish and chips. A nice white fish, cod, with a beer batter/tempura style crust on the fish, very lite and crisp; comes... More

We went here because it was listed in the book at our hotel. Excellent salad bar which contained many healthy and unique items that you don't find on the average salad bar. Steaks were very good.

this restaurant used to be very good with its food and bar menu but has changed quite a bit since new owners have taken over. the salad bar is still the place to start your meal with its variety of cold food and appetitizers. the main course menu is loaded with many items to choose from such as spare ribs...

Get the salad bar and whatever else seems to appeal to you. With an entree the salad bar is around $4.00 and it will soothe any disappointment that the entree of your choice might deliver. The place and staff are pleasant enough. It seems like a decent local choice.

You see senior citizens and much younger crowd co mingled at this place. Salad bar is still very good. Prime rib is still the stable. My sirion is a bit chewy. Rack of lamp is tender and flavorful. New England chowder is a bit too salty for my taste. Both the bar and the dining room are packed on this... More

We used to patronize several of the CB restaurants in Central New Jersey and were pleased to find this branch still doing business. The steak was not bad, but it wasn't really great either. The greeter was appropriately pleasant but the wait staff were perfunctory, whipping plates onto the table and departing in a hurry but otherwise loitering around the... More
