Used to love this place, but the food has been a bit off in recent visits spread out over the last year and a half or so. Really, there was a period when anytime I wanted to take friends out for dinner, or arrange meet-ups, it would be at J.J Bittings. But now, I don't know when I will eat... More

It is a microbrewery that might have good drinks but their food missed the boat. It was average priced but below average quality. The Buffalo Burger was served on a stale roll and a slice of rotten tomato. The tater tots were so well done and deep fried they had no taste other than crisp. The sliders were good. They... More

A great little brewpub in downtown Woodbridge. The pub is an old railroad support building for coal and feed. Great ambiance! The staff are extremely friendly, and all the patrons that were at the bar were friendly. I would say, a must see, if you have time. The food was very good, and the beers were good.

We chose this place for a family birthday party because it was in the middle between where I and my brothers live in Bergen County versus where my sister lives down in Howell. It was easy to get here from the Garden State Parkway or the turnpike. We had a birthday party of 10 for my older brother. We had... More

HAVE eaten there several times over the last ten years and food is below average. Staff often rude and nasty even to kids! There are much better places like the pizza place across the street! .

I have eaten at J.J. Bitting a couple times with my mom and brother, and we will go back again soon. The menu is large and there are many things that are attractive to me, in a purely comfort food-dinerish fashion. On one occasion, we asked them about the train, and they set it up for us - it runs... More

While it is a craft beer brewery, it is unusual in being a restaurant with lots of windows, not a dark bar. The seasonal beers are very good as is the range of casual meals. Look for the toy train running at ceiling level through this former railroad building at the end of Woodbridge's main street. There is more parking... More

This is a very cool place to hangout with friends and try out their selections of locally brewed beers. Right outside the train station makes it convenient for people returning from work to try and relax. Variety of food is great too ! Definitely worth checking them out !!!

I was hosting visitors for a business meeting and we went to JJ's for dinner. We all had a different enter. Mine was fish and chips with a home brewed ale. We all thought the food and drinks were outstanding in terms of taste, size, preparation, and pricing. The server was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Found parking near the entrance.... More
