Reserved a table in the railroad car. Excellent food and service. Great! The atmosphere was fantastic. You can ask for just a table in the car or a much more intimate room in a car.

Rod's has lost much of the luster it was known for in the 80's. It used to be a true 5 star dining experience offering a unique culinary experience. Unfortunately, it is now an ordinary steakhouse with an active bar scene. Rod’s has an identity...More

Wow! I returned to the area to take my niece, fiancé and family to celebrate her engagement - and chose Rod's because of a memorable business dinner 6 years ago. We asked for a private space, preferably in the train car in advance and got...More

Description
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.
