I avoid purchasing pastries from the grocery stores because I find their pastries to be too sweet, if not diluted. I am always on the hunt for something just right - not too sweet and makes you crave for more. The bakery at the Clinton House is the place to go. It's in an inconspicuous area, to right of the...

Went with some business relations to the Clinton House. Although it looks like a pub they have some great food. I took the Queens Prime Rib as I was advised it was already huge. And indeed, cooked to perfection but already to big for an average European guy. I would have loved to see the kings version but nobody dared... More

Went here to celebrate an event with my wife. We had dinner which was average. The restaurant was very noisy. Expected to much.

After spending a fall afternoon in Clinton New Jersey visiting the Red Mill, Hunterdon Art Museum and browsing the shops we decided to stop at the Clinton House for dinner. The restaurant is architecturally nostalgic and has an attached bakery shop which we did not try. Parking is convenient and affords a river view with an attractive bridge which leads... More

The prices would indicate a very good restaurant but what we had was really average. Three of the entrees include coffee and dessert. There is not much competition in this area so it was pretty crowded but not because the food was outstanding. There is a bakery attached where you can buy desserts to take home

I had not been to this place in ten years because the food was mediocre and the price high. We decided to try it on the way home from buying a car. Really pleasantly surprised. We stopped in at about 5 pm . The place was almost empty but they would not seat us at two winfow tables we requested... More

I have frequented many restaurants over the years. Some are very good, but in all my years of dining, the Clinton House is consistently the best restaurant I have dined at. My wife & I love the warm atmosphere & very professional & consistent service there. I have always had excellent meals at the Clinton House. Never even one so-so... More

We were in New Jersey from Cape Cod for a wedding and spent a few days catching up with former friends. We were treated to dinner at this lovely restaurant which we had never been to in the 40 years we lived in New Jersey. Imagine that. Well, this probably was the best prime rib I have ever had in...

We had advance reservations and were seated promptly. Our first waiter was prompt and efficient. I had the seafood newburg which was excellent, but my dining companion had the very advertised crab cakes which were rather bland and disappointing as we are accustomed to Maryland crab cakes. Somehow we got a different waiter who was not as attentive as the... More

We had a dinner for 9 people on a lovely Saturday evening... 6 adults and 3 kiddos..This was my first time ever eating at this establishment. The service was excellent...the food was very good and the ambiance was lovely. As a vegan they specially made me an array of different vegetables with a baked potato. Normally, I wouldn't be very...
