I️ had been here another time with a large group and we had the whole inside room (picture the inside of an Irish cottage) this time here with my dad and husband for lunch. Decorated beautifully and did seem very Irish! The food was great!...More

There is nothing wrong with he food here but certainly nothing to write home about. The menu is massive which while giving choice usually results in average food and that sums this place up. Maybe a good lively place at night but it was very...More

Wonderful Irish-American food, from beef stew, to lamb shepherd's pie, and wonderful scones. Add a glass of Guinness!

Our first review of Thatcher's contained some errors on my part. First of all the onion soup was posted as "swill", whereas I intended to type "Swell." The soup is hearty, filled with onions, and the cheese-covered crouton is flavored and remains crispy in the...More

Maybe it's just me, but I cringe when I see a place that calls itself "Irish" because it serves Fish & Chips, and maybe Shepherd's Pie, with an Irish beer or two on the menu. This is not one of those places. They cover a...More

Nice place but food could use some improvement. It's not bad just not exceptional. Service can be spotty.

Unfortunately, for a true vegan, there are not many choices. There are a few salads and possibly a daily special. Sorry.

My response would be that it depends on the ages of your children and when exactly you are planning on going. Lunch and early dinner time I would think are fine for children. I have no idea about the free refills. Call to... More

Measure a roof’s worth by the quality of its thatch;A friendship by the strength of its hands;A love by the size of its heart;And a family by the depth of its loyalty.Thatch can be defined as any vegetation used to roof a structure. The vegetation is gathered, bundled and secured to the framework on top of a building. Thatch functions both as a shingle and underlayment; very rarely is there anything beyond simple framework between the thatch and the inside of the structure.European thatch dates back to before the Middle Ages, when the first small, permanent villages were established. Today, thatch is generally acknowledged for its visual appeal and as a way to add a historic or whimsical touch to a home. While it does impart a storybook quality to many structures, thatch also retains practical aspects of its past.Designed with a traditional thatched roof reminiscent of old Irish homes, Thatcher McGhee’s first opened its doors in Pompton Lakes, NJ in 2006 and raised a new roof in Denville, NJ in 2011. An eclectic blend of new and old, Thatcher’s is a place for friends to catch up, families to share a meal and celebrations to be had.
