“New Jersey's largest mall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

I am not big on shopping, but Garden State is so convenient and you can find everything here. It is a big maze but for the shopper enthusiast it must be heaven. Be ready to fight the traffic in the parking lots and the race to find a parking space. Other that that you can catch a movie or eat at a nice restaurant

“Nice, big mall if shopping is your thing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013

Probably a good mall to visit if shopping is your thing. I went as I had promised someone a certain gift from Abercrombie and Fitch and couldn't find it in Jersey Gardens.

I get quite bored in malls so didn't really stay too long. Pretty nice though with lots of places to eat etc

“Too huge & overcrowded”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

Difficult even to find parking space there! Confusing to get back to main roads after 10 p.m. because of road blocks.

“Huge, great variety, all prices, crowded, parking is not easy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

This is a great mall. You will never run short on choices of where to shop here. All price ranges and styles of stores are represented. There are also a number of dining options.

The bad things are - the crowds. It's so often mobbed. Don't go on a Saturday unless you are desperate and have no other choice. it's a nightmare on Saturdays - and not open on Sundays. Parking can be tough. The parking lots are huge, but the sheer number of shoppers is so vast that the lots fill up fast.

All in all, a nice place to go to when time and patience levels permit. You will leave with shopping bags in your hand and your shopping list complete.
