We stayed at the Hampton next door and the Ironbound restaurant was recommended by the font desk. It has tvS for sports viewing but they are muted and close captioned so the noise level is nil. Food was excellent and plentiful with great choices.

Excellent food. My husband said that the Buffalo wings were the best he had tasted in a long time. Loved the aviance. The wait staff were great.

I had the hand-tossed sausage pizza and it was delicious! The service was very good and the dishes I saw being served near me looked great. I certainly recommend this place if you're staying near Newark Liberty Airport.

The only reason to eat at this restaurant is if you are staying at the hotel. The breakfast buffet was overpriced and of the same quality of free breakfasts you get at chain hotels.

The hotel next door suggest this restaurant for dinner. What a great choice - I walked to it. It was very nice - a lot of activity in the bar area. I was served immediately. I had the caesar salad with chicken on the top. It was fresh cold and very good. For dessert I had two red velvet cookies... More

The food at the restaurant was moderately priced and pretty good fair. There were not enough servers for the amount of traffic on a Saturday night.

We were looking for a restaurant close to our hotel and decided to try this place out. The restaurant/lounge is in the Renaissance Hotel. We ordered the Cuban panini and the garlic parmesan wings. They were delicious. The wings were large and loaded with creamy garlic parmesan dressing. Never had wings prepared this way and I'm glad we ordered it... More

We sat at the bar and enjoyed our dinner. We had the pizza and salad for dinner and it was perfect. We shared a fruit cobbler as well. We had two glasses of the Seaglass wine and it was fabulous. A very nice evening with very nice staff.
