We all had different meals but all the food was excellent, steak and fries especially. Staff were friendly and helpful, prices are a bit expensive but that is the area where it is normal.

Fair Lawn has always been kind of foodie town. First IHOP mad McDs in the area, always good Chinese and Italian. So when an outpost of Edgewater's River Palm Terrace opened, it raised the culinary bar. Great steaks, of course, but also has a great...More
