Description: Established in 1710, this is the inn that was immortalized by Richard Rodgers in the song "There's a small hotel with a wishing well" sung in the Broadway play On Your Toes. The inn was first built as a private residence and is believed to have been converted in 1832. Come and explore the over 300 year old Stockton Inn, nestled in the quaint borough of Stockton, New Jersey. Romantic dining is served in the exquisite mural rooms with fireside seating during the colder months. In the warmest months of the year, savor your meal and your surroundings while dining on the patio alongside two waterfalls and beautifully integrated gardens.

We had lunch in the outdoor area. Very pleasant ambiance, w/waterfall, multi level dining area. I enjoyed Chicken Pot-Pie, my companionhad some sort of special salad, which she enjoyed w/ a Bloody Mary; I enjoyed a Yeungling Beer, followed by coffee. priced w/ local upper tier restaurants. Excellent service!

Somehow I never came across this restaurant until recently. We were lucky enough to sit outside by the waterfall. Just that beautiful sound alone was enough for me. The food was amazingly delicious. The salad was crisp and the dressing divine. Our dinners were perfectly cooked and presented nicely. We saved room for dessert and we were not disappointed. The service was average, nothing special. If they train their waitresses and waiters some more this restaurant would move up the list. Looking forward to a return trip!

Nancy and I selected the Stockton Inn for our 50th Anniversary because we celebrated our 25th there. When reservations were being made for a party of 16, our friend was told they had a limit of up to 8 guests. The reservationist needed to check with the owner and would call back. Given our special circumstances they made an exception. Everyone raved about their meals. Ambiance ... it is THE Stockton Inn. Our server, Michael, was over the top. His most negative expression, which was uttered only once, was "please let me check on that". Our 25th was special. Our 50th even more so. Thank you owner, chef and staff.

This old inn on the Delaware River in Stockton N.J. is a delightful place to dine with a couple or group. There were 9 of us for our recent visit and the cocktails were excellent, I had a charming summer beer, and the food was liked throughout the group. I started with a quite good version of clams casino and then had the pan seared diver scallops over a herb risotto cake with green and white asparagus. This was an excellent dish. Others had sea bass, salmon, the pasta special as well as there tavern fare chicken pot pie. All were well receive, save the pot pie which while good did not quite match a more famous version in south Jersey. Most of us enjoyed one of the homemade ice creams and sorbets that the new pastry chef concocted.

Six friends met here for lunch on a sunny, warm Memorial day. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and promptly seated at our table on the covered patio. The outdoor setting was beautiful with an abundance of greenery and a delightful waterfall. Our waiter was most attentive, professional, and efficient. Yet he was friendly enough so that we enjoyed some light hearted banter during the course of our visit. We shared several appetizers that we all thoroughly enjoyed remarking how tasty, innovative and freshly prepared they were though the clams casino were a little on the chewy side. The entrees were also warmly received. Our servers knew where to place our plates without having to ask. There was none of "who gets the pickled pigs feet" here! The staff here are proud of their restaurant and strive to ensure that their guests have a pleasurable visit. Oh, don't pass up the splendid pasteries for dessert!
