Enjoyed dining experience there last week. Small, intimate with excellent crab cakes, scallops and shrimp, great wedge salad. Will be back there again very soon. Will review again. I think the chef is new, so whoever tried before with the old chef, try it again...More

Went here with 6 friends for our occasional splurge lunch. We had the place to ourselves, as I think not many people know it is open for lunch – only on Fridays. We started with calamari and mussels – both were basic but very good....More

On a recommendation I decided to dine at Stapleton's located in Raritan, NJ. I was joined by 7 friends (moms) for a New Years Saturday night out. The restaurant is a very small, quaint-attractive place. We were greeted and treated very well! Excellent service and...More

Stapleton's simply try's to be something it's not. Namely a high end restaurant. The service and food are not horrible, they just aren't that great. This would be fine if the prices we're reflective of the product. Your money can go much further elsewhere.

The restaurant is apparently trying to be a seafood restaurant with an Italian touch. Unfortunately it misses on both counts. The seafood is not prepared well and there is no Italian chef in the kitchen. Clams Oreganto was inedible since it was so overspiced it...More
