This was my first time. The food was great and do was the service. The building has so much charm and history. Don't miss out, make your reservation. It does get crowded.

Yesterday I went to one of my favorite Food Destinations in the South of France. Or so I thought after I left The Happy Apple Inn in Cream Ridge, New Jersey. Food among other things like Music and Travel plays a very important part in my Live. And like a Song you will always remember or a Place you will... More

The food in this restaurant is awesome. If you live in the area or are driving by, you must stop in, also very close to Route 195. The building is historical and the woman's bathroom is a must see

We were shopping at the outlets and found this gem. It is in a very small berg, but what a hidden find. The restaurant was decorated with a primitive old fashioned decor. Even the carpeting had the name on it. The food was outstanding! My prime rib was cooked perfectly. Squash soup was on the menu and was heavenly. The... More

So, it's Old, Rustic, and doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food was delicious, the service very good, and a wide variety of menu selections. Some items are pretty pricey, but there's a wide range there too. If you're looking for a bargain, try somewhere else. You can tell a lot of preparation goes into what they... More

Met some friends for diner last week. Salad bar was pretty good, I ordered Salmon which was also pretty good. Wife ordered grouper and it was terrible, something wrong with breading etc. Friends also ordered stuffed chicken and they enjoyed it. Coffee and dessert was good. Ok dining ordered via senior early bird specials. Nothing special

I'm not a fan of salad bars and there were some flies around the food. I didn't care for the salad and didn't try the bread station. The wait staff was pleasant. We did have to wait quite a long time for our dinner. I had the crab cakes and they were fine. My husband had pork and he enjoyed... More

Have been here a few times and tried a number of the entrees. The menu is limited and most of the offerings are okay. A good choice would be the chopped steak, pork chop or fried shrimp. My favorite entree is the duck, it's usually cooked perfectly, never fatty or dry and served with a moist and delicious stuffing as... More

Ordered the prime rib and fried shrimp..both were excellent, cooked perfectly and more than we could eat. Salad was crisp and tasty and had enough choices on salad bar to satisfy anyone. Bread was good but would have liked to have maybe a second choice on the board. Atmosphere friendly, service just right. Have not been there in years but... More
