We went here for out anniversary and it was outstanding as always. We ate in the train car which is always our favorite. The service was excellent as was the food. Mr. Keller came through the car checking on everyone which is a nice touch. I've been going here for 35 years and enjoyed every time.

Had dinner by myself and the service was nothing great. Not one inquiry as to how my meal was or if I needed another drink. The crab appetizer was ok and nothing great. Had the 12 oz filet medium rare. It was cooked perfect for medium rare but it was nothing special taste wise. Decent meal that is way over... More

Came at lunch time with a grandchild. Server took our order quickly but it took a long time to prepare and bring to the table.

Excellent Mother's Day, early dinner, in the train car. Beautifully appointed train car, excellent friendly and attentive service. Nicely printed menus for the occasion. All meals were delicious and beautifully presented- Crab bisque, lobster crab salad, lamb chops, pork chop, creme brûlée, sorbet, red velvet cake. Gluten free needs were accommodated. While it was expensive, the meal was worth it.... More

We made a last minute reservation so we had to go a little earlier than we would have liked, but we were glad to be accommodated. I had the caprese as an appetizer and the fillet mignon with risotto and potatoes au gratin as sides shared with my husband. Everything was excellent. The fillet was cooked exactly as I had... More

Got to the hotel late and wanted something close. What a surprise. Had the snapper special and it was among the best seafood dinners I have had. Definately a 10. Wine selection excellent without being over priced. Ambiance is classic, service was very good. Excellent overall experience.

Nice place, but stuffy old fashioned environment being a part of the hotel. Great food, friendly service, less choice that at Ruths steak house which for me remains the best

Celebrated my 20th wedding anniversary and found it very enjoyable. The nice touch was the restaurant giving us a little "Happy Anniversary" cake after our dinner. - So thoughtful! :)

These RR cars are restored to pristine condition. Get an idea how the Victorian's eat excellent food while traveling down the track. Great steak house and so much more. Romantic for two and intimate for four. Rod's is an institution in Morristown. You won't be sorry.

My Husband and I enjoy going to Rod's every year for our anniversary. We were married at The Madison Hotel so it's a special place for us. The food is always amazing. In 15 years, we have never had a bad meal. The steak and lobster tail are my favourites. The filet is like butter. My husband always gets the... More

Welcome to New Jersey's Legendary Steak House

Rod's Steak & Seafood Grille, an area landmark and winner of New Jersey Monthly's 'Best Steakhouse' award, offers lunch and dinner daily as well as the finest Sunday Brunch in New Jersey.

The restaurant's new design, rich wood paneling and highly polished brass, lends a classic elegance to the sophisticated atmosphere. For an intimate and unique experience, dinner aboard the private Parlour Cars is sure to be remembered. Formerly the private domain of the rich and famous, these beautifully refurbished, turn of the century railway cars are exquisitely complimented by the haute cuisine of Rod's esteemed Executive Chef.
