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.

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

Hadn't been to Rod's in many years and returned for dinner last night. It was much better than we remembered. We had a reservation and were seated promptly which was a plus as the restaurant was extremely busy. There is a bar area that was filled with mostly younger people and loud music. We sat in the dining room on the other side of the bar and there was a band playing, but it was at a level where we could easily hear each other. The food prices were expensive, but well worth it and the crab cakes dinner was outstanding as was the steak. The portions are very large and well presented, but the Caesar salad was little bland, but still tasty. There is valet parking which is a plus. The service was rather slow, but in their defense, they were very busy. I would highly recommend Rod's.

“EXCELLENT BRUNCH”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

We ate at the Sunday Brunch last week and thought it was one of the best offered. Everything was very tasty and the service was good. My only complaint is that I told the person I made the reservation with that there was a handicapped person in my party and needed to be seated downstairs at a table. When we arrived we were seated downstairs but there were no tables.
We were seated in a booth but it was very difficult to get in and out for her.

“one of our favorites”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

We love the food, service and ambiance at Rods. I always get the filet and it's always cooked perfectly, hubby gets the porterhouse, which is huge and delicious. It's not cheap, but it's worth every penny. If you get on their mailing list, then have specials throughout the year
