Very nice and cozy atmosphere at The Iring Inn. Food was VERY good and definitely not run of the mill. Service was excellent also. Looking forward to going back!

Before I begin my wife and I dined at the social side, not the formal side. What a fun find! Great food. Small menu which means all the items get teh care they deserve. The drinks were amazing and the atmosphere was great. It got...a little loud but nothing that I deter me from coming back. A great spot to get a drink and a biteMore

Been meaning to dine at The IRVING Inn for some time and we were not disappointed. Love the ambiance. It felt like we had a private table! Service was excellent w a smile! Craft cocktails and beers were great and delicious. Apps were incredible. Stuffed...cabbage, cheese plate and garlic shrimp - wow! Mains included Kansas City steak, Pork Chop, Chicken Paillard ans a pasta dish all cooked to perfection and delicious sizable portions! Split a coconut piece of cake for dessert. What a great night! RAHWAY is really coming along as well and we want to try the bar next time!More

Our food was very good. The glasses of wine ordered resulted in an enjoyable generous pour. The prices, while surprising for Rahway, are very fair. The kitchen has a good command of flavor and food arrives well presented and at appropriate temperature. The service though,...is slow, subdued, and lacking. Never offered a water glass refill without having to ask multiple times. No real effort at discussing menu. Dessert menu took forever as did check. Maybe because the place was empty and full staff not there. I don’t know. The layout is also odd. Maybe there’s another entrance. Never saw a bar or social area so there must be. No sign saying so on What seemed like front door when coming from btrain station. I’ll go back once more because it shows promise. But if the service is not better - the prices aren’t justified, the romance is lost, and real good food available from other places with more ambience and personality. The Irving Room needs to try harder or is already too tired. That’s the point. 4 out of 5 was generous.More

Friendly staff. I had the tortilla soup which was outstanding. Since I had been sick I did not want to try anything else. Great bar atmosphere. I will come back.

We always love our meals at The Irving Inn / Irving Social. Favorites include the red snapper, butternut squash steak and the Brussels sprouts appetizer. They have a great bugger and we also liked the chicken. The owner and head chef often visit with guests...making it a very welcoming experience. For dessert the sticky toffee is my favorite. The servers are friendly and knowledgeable.More

Service wasn’t great. Took a half hour to even order. Took like an hour for our table of 7 to get food AND it wasn’t busy. Food was okay.

This place has it all. Excellent food, great service and a very comfortable atmosphere. The out door dining plaza is a great place to enjoy a meal on a warm summer night. The menu is interesting and varied. Excellent fish dishes and a great dry...aged NY strip sirloin. A fine wine list compliments the delicious food. Highly recommended so call early for a reservation because this place has been discovered.More

Small and cozy restaurant near Rahway station. One waiter trying to take care of all tables is probably the main cause of some slowdown in service. Interesting menu - as an Italian I dutifully avoided pasta dishes but found satisfaction in a calamari starter and...a duck pie. Dish presentation not great, but food seemed appreciated by the whole table.More
