We visited the Battleship New Jersey, earlier this month, one day, when the snow was melting. Because of that, only part of the ship was open for touring. We opted not to take the audio tour, as it was even more money; however, we may have missed something without it. The little exhibit inside was self explanatory, and so were a couple of the rooms, but I wonder if we missed any explanation of the outside of the ship. The ship and its history is impressive, and I did enjoy the exhibit on board; I just don't think that it was worth the steep price, especially since we couldn't tour the whole ship, and there was no one on the ship of whom to ask questions.

Eight & Sand Beer Co.

Reviewed By Tiffanycl

We visited the brewery for the first time due to a yoga event and I'm so glad we went. I'd love to go again with a fun group. We had a tour of the brewery operations and I raised two different flights of beers afterwards which were all very different! I loved the grapefruit one best, but the dark coffee beers are also great. You can order food to be delivered so we hung for a couple of hours and had Fat Louie's sandwiches delivered.

Adelphia Restaurant & Lounge

Reviewed By wildwood2go - philadelphia, pa

Whenever my husband and I are in the mood for delicious Chicken Parmegiana we choose Adelphia. The gravy is delicious and the chicken cooked perfectly. We love their waiter that sings (Sam?) Not only a delicious meal but entertainment at your table! We then head over to the bar and if we are lucky, Tina, Regina, Julie or Eileen are waiting for us. Without even telling them what we would like, our drinks are on the bar. You would think we were family.
If you love Pizza, try their special on Friday nights. BOGO free. Brick oven pizza, it is the best!

Had a lot of fun over here. It's indoors and they have multiple speed cages, both softball and baseball. This place Is a good time, friendly staff, lots of fun. Only complaint is that you should bring your own equipment, the bats are in poor shape.

Tavern on the Edge

Reviewed By Blake A - Gloucester City, New Jersey

My wife and I decided to have lunch at the new Tavern on the Edge. We walked in and sat ourselves. It took about 10 min before anyone acknowledged us. My wife got a sandwich and I got a shrimp and pasta platter. We were both pleased with our food. The server was very friendly but everything seemed very chaotic. It was the first week they were open so I assume they were still working the kinks out. We were pleased with the food and will try it again.

Escape Room South Jersey

You are placed inside a fun themed room and have 60 minutes to solve the task at hand using the clues and puzzles hidden throughout. It's a hectic, fun and challenging dash as you and up to nine other players work furiously to complete your objective before the time runs out.

Reviewed By Kathleen P - Mullica Hill, New Jersey

I highly recommend this for everyone! It was such a different night out for a reasonable price. The people running it were fantastic. The clues were hard but not impossible. My friend is claustrophobic, so I was worried, but they assured her the door would be unlocked if she needed to get out. The room was big enough and she was fine. We only had 4 people. I think it would be more fun with a bigger group. There is plenty of nearby parking. The people that run it are really nice. Collingswood is a nice town. Have dinner there and make a night of it. We are definitely going back! 2 thumbs up!

Reading Terminal Market

Featuring over 80 concessions, this historic market has something for even the most eclectic of tastebuds.

Reviewed By NJ-Surfcrab - Toms River

Large building with multiple stalls. Some shopping, but mostly food of all types to eat in an informal setting. Definitely not high end, but a gret place to go if you like to sample things you might not find in other places and great variations of food you will find at home. Inexpensive for a big city. Generous portions. Close to the convention center. Some times it is difficult to find a seat. There is a general seating area and some places have their own areas. We shared a table with a group of students from Peru who spoke English and were there as delegates to a Youth Convention. It was a memorable experience. We always stop at the Amish stand for big, soft pretzels no matter what else. Dres informally, but you will see folks in suits as well -- usually at an event at the convention center or from local offices. If you have access to your car, there's a lot of fresh produce, meat, cheese, fish, nuts, candy etc to take home. Bring a cooler.

Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts

A dazzling museum, as much for its interior design as for its collection.

Reviewed By Jeffrey T

Absolutely amazing historic museum. The architecture is as interesting as the art collection itself. Great, eclectic, and varied collection of paintings and photography. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Our docent for our tour was highly knowledgeable, interesting, and engaging. Viewing art is a fantastic experience when you better understand the many backstories of the museum, the artists, and the specific historical contexts of the work itself. A great way to spend 3-4 hours and to learn about how the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art (PAFA) and its 'school of artistic thought and technique' have so significantly impacted how we do art through history in the U.S.!

I'd been waiting to go to this museum for many many years. They have great cars and the staff are really knowledgeable but I expected more, especially as they were rated as the "Museum of the year". The displays aren't that great, there's nothing that's really interactive. It really looks like they put some really nice cars in a warehouse, parked them and said "poof, we have a museum". I'm happy I saw it, but won't go back.
