Wanting to try a new place, we ventured to the Red Hen for dinner. Unfortunately, we will not be returning. We were seated promptly at a round table for 2. Seating was cramped and no place to put my pocketbook; did not want it to touch the floor as the floor was dirty. Very loud atmosphere, unable to hold a conversation with each other "yelling". Appetizer was the shrimp/salsa/wontons, not what we expected and definitely not worth the price. The shrimpt were the small salad shrimp and if there were 6 shrimp in the mix, we were lucky. I had the fish tacos. The fish were flaky and good well, except bland; there was no seasoning at all on the fish. Husband had a flatbread. The flatbread had way too much sauce on it, so much that it overpowered the taste. He asked me to taste it to confirm what he thought and I agreed with him, it didn't really taste like sauce, but more like a whole can of tomato paste. Bathroom was so-so, but there was no toilet paper on the roll. Upon looking around, I saw the small container that held the new rolls of toilet paper and I put a new roll on (just like being at home). The waitress was great, but the overall experience left little desire for us to return.

Located in a nice town, we stumbled upon this place after pulling off the turnpike looking for good eats. Nice variety on the menu, friendly servers. Looking forward to their "new vegan menu" .

We just had to try the fried chicken here and we were not disappointed . It was flavorful, moist and plentiful. Mussels were cooked to perfection but the white sauce was a bit salty. Waitress was not very attentive and didn't pay attention to detail, but it is summertime so the regular help must be off.

The Red Hen in Swedesboro, NJ is not the one that threw out Sarah Huckabee-Sanders! This Red Hen is a restaurant that is popular with locals who want a decent meal at an affordable price. The decor is fun, and there are a variety of menu choices. Outside eating is an option. Perfect for families or meeting up with friends!

Well kept historical building. Sit in the open area, in the bar, or outside. The menu is well balanced. I like their selection of appetizers.
