Thank you one and all for the superb take home meal our family group of 3 enjoyed New Year’s Eve. Our entire feast was nothing short of spectacular. Starting out with a perfectly executed Caesar salad..simple but sublime! My husband and I relished in our...Herb Crusted Rack of Lamb specials. The lamb was succulent, flavorful and the exact medium-rare we requested. Re-heating as per your instructions did not lessen the juicy and tenderness one bit. Hats off to all the accompaniment — not only was each enjoyable on their own but the manner in which each complimented the others was remarkable. Our daughter’s Lobster Pasta was equally enjoyed. A treat to behold! Today we look forward to our leftovers as portions were more than generous. Our appetizers will be a combination of your cheeses and charcuterie....can’t wait. Thank you and Happy New Year to all!More

Rahway is becoming a restaurant town and Irving Inn is a fantastic restaurant. We enjoyed an awesome dinner with friends. Ricotta Meatballs, Brussels and the short ribs were our favorites pared with awesome signature cocktails! Can’t wait to go back

Rahway as a destination for great food, and cool big city ambiance, who knew? Now you do, and it's called Irving Social. Garlic Shrimp, Gnocchi Stroganoff appetizers and incredible "Brussels" pasta. Combine that with personable and professional staff,really good drinks selection, and slick bartending skills...and you've got a reason for that first visit and that visit will keep you coming back.More

Nothing like finding a cozy and friendly place during a cold snap. Went there with conworkers for dinner. Shepard’s pie was delicious though my mate from across the pond said it is really a cottage pie.

The wife and I decided to try this place after hearing about it. The drinks were on point and the food was delicious. I just wish portions would demand the asking price. Our server was awesome. She was very informative and friendly.
