The Prospect Tavern has some of the best food in the area. I have eaten there several times and each time I am impressed with the quality of the food. The pork chop is excellent and the chill may be the best I've ever had.

This place has a great bar, the best in Madison. The food is OK, but the attraction is the bar for me.

We go to the Prospect Tavern frequently. They have a nice selection of special beer. The food (steaks), burgers and salads are GREAT. Highly recommended. And there are TVs to watch sports.

The onion soup is delicious and you can even get it with gluten-free bread. Henry is the best server ever! Great place to hang with friends and have a beer.

In the late 19th century, the Prospect Tavern housed a coal company, part of the bustling railroad industry located just yards away. Today the 1880's Tudor building comfortably seats 50 patrons in the dining room, while the 60-foot bar and outdoor patio make the tavern the preferred place for a casual dinner or to enjoy the perfect pint.The Prospect Tavern offers classic American comfort food like our thinly sliced prime rib sandwich with au jus sauce or our slowly-braised home-style pot roast. Our superior-cut Prime Rib has distinct marbling and is served and seasoned to perfection. Available only on the weekends, this excellent Prime Rib includes a salad, vegetable, and any-style potato.The Prospect Tavern is situated in the central business district of Madison N.J., steps away from the train station, movie theater and great local shopping, making it the perfect place to enjoy a delectable meal before a movie, or to have a relaxing drink on the outdoor patio.
