Small family owned business running for the last 41 years. Once you step inside the Restuarant you immediately get a sense of how old the rest is. Suddenly the thought of how good the food is going to be dawns on you. Honestly we tried...several different dishes and the wings are a huge winner. The pizza so amazing with real ingredients. Staff and owner super wonderful and very friendly. I must admit I have not had a great meal with food tasting so fresh and rich for some time. To top it all you really get your money’s worth with every bite.More

It’s my favorite place for dinner almost every night as I get my choice & taste of food which I relish after a days work at my business.. The staff is generous, kind and hospitable and they know the taste of each customers who come...to patronize this family restaurant.. The food quality is too good and very consistent with reasonable pricing too… Mr Sal the owner who personally takes interest in all the needs of individuals who come here to dine.. If given a choice I would have given them seven stars… I do send all my guests who come to stay at my Bed & Breakfast Inn in Vernon, NJ to come have their meals and celebrate their Birthday’s & Anniversaries on almost daily & regular basis.. I would highly recommend- The Lamp Post Inn to all those who live in town and also to guests/ travelers who come to this beautiful town of Vernon NJ to visit and have a sumptuous meal to be remembered in their life time… Chef Chuck & his team really works very hard to satisfy all their customers who for dining at this restaurant….Kudos to Chuck & his team…More

Been there three times recently. At the height of pandemic, bar attendants and waitresses ignored CDC guidelines and had either no mask on or wore them under their chins. Who knows what goes on in the kitchen. Warned owner twice. It was ignored. Suggest avoiding...this place if your health is of any importance.More

Both bartenders behind the bar (one probably about 7 months pregnant) both had a bar full of people eating and drinking and both of them were using their masks as chin guards. I’ve picked up orders from them twice and this is the second time...this has happened. The first time indoor dining wasn’t open yet and regulars were still sitting at the bar drinking and again the pregnant bartender was wearing her mask down. Not following CDC guidelines and the lack of caring about customers because you don’t want to wear a mask will make me not return. I have already told multiple people in the area about this as well.More

Had a mostly-nice visit. All of our appetizers (stuffed mushrooms, mozzarella sticks and fried calamari) and 3 of our sandwiches (barbecue bacon cheeseburgers and meatball sandwich) were all very good. One of our sandwiches (an eggplant parmesan) was tough and dry...which was the one shame.

Ordered takeout New Year's Eve. The food was terrible. We have never had bad food from here. One order was a sausage and peppers hero. It looked like sliced roast beef. Never again.

The food was good and plenty of it. But I have not been charged for refills on soda and tea for over 35 years. You will be here.

I will start off saying we were a large party. The waitstaff was wonderful in every way possible. With so many of us, I will only critique from my own POV. I ordered the French onion soup to start. Bread was provided and we were...offered more. We shared 2 bottles of Cavit moscato. It went well with my meal. I ordered the seafood assortment. It included 2 small pieces of sea bass, 2 scallops, 2 shrimp, 2 stuffed clams, a crab stuffed shrimp, assorted vegetables (zucchini, yellow squash, carrots & green beans) I chose rice with my meal. The French onion soup was wonderful and just what one would expect. My seafood assortment was average. The scallops were cooked but there was no real sear on either side but, they were moist. The shrimp were cooked but really had no pizazz to them. The clams were tasty but one had a bit of grit. The sea bass was nicely cooked but also bland. It is like someone forgot to properly season the food. The stuffed shrimp was also decent. The rice and vegetables were also on the bland side. Lemon was provided but did not added enough for the blandness of my meal. A little pricey for an average meal. I expected more as my family was raving about this place. For me, the company was better than my meal!More

Ate there today with my family. 7 total. Had a reservation at 6:45p. We were a little late but then waited in the entrance for 9 minutes before anyone said anything to us. 2 bus-people and 2 servers looked at us but never said someone...will be with you. A server came up and cashed a guest out and the guest asked for change and she said: “you have to go to the bar, i dont have change here”. We got sat, waited 12 minutes before our server approached us and said “did she get your drinks?” Nope we said. She took our drink order and 6 of us ordered water. Several minutes later the hostess bring us a pitcher of water then the bus girl brings glasses and walks away. Took a little while for the food and then my daughter’s burger was rare (ordered med-well) we sent it back. It came back with a new bun and cheese, but was burnt! They took the burger that she took 3 bites of and threw it back on the grill!! Not good service all around. The bus girl kept walking pass leering at us as if to get us to hurry. They really need to work on their customer service. Food was actually good besides the burger.More

We were in the area for a getaway weekend. We searched for a good place for dinner. Based on reviews, we decided on the Lamp Post. When pulling into the parking lot, all of us were a bit taken back because it looked a bit...worn and dated. Well, "don't judge a book...." as they say. The service, food and value are fantastic! We shared the wings and Bavarian pretzels as an appetizer, amazing! The dinner specials included soup or salad, coffee and dessert. Reasonably priced, generous portions and the dessert (bread pudding with apple and vanilla sauce) was baked in house and the best we ever had. Truly worth the trip.More

We had our rehearsal dinner here and the food was excellent. Sal was very helpful in planning the event and willing to accommodate our requests. The price was very reasonable and even came with dessert! We also enjoyed the service, and at the end of...the night, we could even take home the leftovers! Thanks Lamp Post Inn for a great night!!More
