Great location, awesome building. Healthy drinks (that's a good thing), appetizers are off the charts. We shared shrimp cocktail, spinach with clams, Amish Chicken, lobster salad, and a super chocolate dessert. Everything came out perfect. Waiters and waitresses are very helpful explaining each dish. A...MUST if you're in the area.More

Same great food and we can now dine safely indoors. Owner Chris Cannon did a super job reconfiguring the downstairs area to facilitate a safe dining experience. We were very comfortable returning to JHBK.

Wow! What a place! The circular driveway and valet are more indication of the charm that surrounds this once revolutionary Inn. They have the BEST outdoor covered patio, not a tent set up, but a designated sexy dining area w/ spaced apart tables and drapes.....lovely...area by the fountain to have a cocktail too. The service is fantastic and staff are always there to make sure you are having a fantastic experience. They have a great wine list and cocktail menu. The pineapple daiquiri is refreshing and delicious. The food is fresh and local and plated beautifully. The East Coast oysters and the Cacio e Pepe AranciniIt appetizer were AMAZING and I recommend them both. The Tile Fish with smoked clam & tomato nage, baby fennel, and fava beans was excellent and I recommend this dish as well. We skipped dessert but there were a number of tasty looking options and fantastic teas. Start saving your pennies for a lovely lunch or dinner here. It will be well worth your time and anticipation. Reservations are a must whether coming for lunch or dinner.More

Visited 08/21/2020 We talked so long about coming here and finally made it. Overall, the food, service and ambiance was (is) very good. A bit warm in the late afternoon sun although most of the tables were in the shade when we got there. Still,...the sun quickly went behind that large tree on the right side and it wasn't as hot as it had been recently. My wife started with the lobster salad and I with the crab salad. The lobster salad (served with a taragon aioli) and my crab salad (cilantro and lime) were both a wonderful start to the meal. For entrées, my wife had the skatewing piccata, served with capers, swiss chard and fingerling potatoes. Neither of us have ever tried skatewing until tonight, but after this tasty dish, I have to find a nice recipe and try it myself. At least, I won't be afraid to try it if I see it on a menu elsewhere. (Or here) I had the JHBK burger... making for a really a strange experience. The burger itself (grass fed beef) was indeed very tasty... however the grilled cheddar was pretty solid so much larger than the bun it made eating this burger a little awkward. I ended up having to cut the buger with a knife and fork, which is fine and not the first time I've eaten a burger this way. The vinegar/salted fries were excellent and done to perfection. We shared a very nice bottle of Rosé (La Clarine Farm) which too was cool and refreshing. I took off a star partially for the awkwardness of the burger, but also because there was an $8 charge for a bread basket. Maybe it's me, but I don't understand why bread needs an extra charge. All homemade (brioche, a couple of slices of sour dough and a couple of pieces of facaccia) the bread was good, but really nothing special. I've been to many restaurants and virtually every one of them served bread, or a bread basket without an extra charge. Just annoying to me. But like I said... maybe it's me. All in all... yes, I'd be happy to visit here again, particularly if we can visit the Rathskeller or the Washington Room. That'll be nice.More

Had brunch today at JH and everything was delicious. Also in our COVID environment we felt very safe. Tables spaced apart, servers had masks and gloves. We especially loved the deserts, which were very creative.

Incredible dinner tonight! Perfect service, food and drinks. This place makes some of my favorite margaritas. Most of us had pasta and they were delicious. Service several months ago needed some work but I can see the improvements. Very creative deserts, especially their Yuzu pie...(like a lemon meringue) but better. We will come again.More

How this place doesn't 5 stars all the time from everyone is beyond me. I'm guessing it is people who don't know or who are cheap. Look this place is pricey. And it isn't a burger and fries type of place. It is a real,...serious restaurant. With real prices and real service and real food. I can't ever recall having a bad meal or bad wine or bad service. I've been there I dunno 25-50 times, probably closer to 50. Vail bar is great. No, you and your frat buds are not gonna like it. Oyster bar/restaurant is great and the more casual restaurant. No, you're not gonna get waffle fries or anything like that. Washington restaurant upstairs (dePesca before that and ??? before dePesca) is the finest dining of the place. Elegant but laid back. Sure it'll cost you, but so will the Grand Cafe, Roots, Blue Morel, or Natirar (if you want to make the drive). I go to all those, but frequent JHBG the most. Plus, the sommelier is excellent (Adam). I mean fantastic excellent if you know wine and want some recommendations. The prior sommelier's were just as good too. When you're done, go down to the Rathskeller and catch a band some weekend nights. Hopping joint but not trashy, crowded or sketchy. If you know quality and seek it out, this place is for you.More

I am writing a review of the oyster bar at Jockey hollow restaurant in Morristown New Jersey. I am writing to tell all of you what a fantastic time my husband and my two friends and I had at the oyster bar! We had a...terrific dinner, great oysters and fabulous drinks! The service was phenomenal! Our waiter was Connor and Kim. We had a lot of service by both these people but, Connor was my favorite! He was informative and all his suggestions were wonderful and the service at our table was terrific! I can't say enough about this restaurant, the food and the service! 👍👍👍😊😊😊More

Overall I need to say all the dishes were good but don't think anything was very good as I don't see myself going back. The service was good and friendly. I wish I could say more the experience but there really isn't. Overall need to...say that our expectations were not met, or perhaps our expectations were just too highMore

I would agree there are gluten free options but I don't recall it being highlighted on the menu. Your best bet is to call the restaurant.
