Stopped in for a quick dinner before a concert at Stanhope House. Ceaser salad was very good...just right mix of dressing and a nice helping...added a little pepper and was very good....got the margarita pizza and it was very good, thin crust, cooked perfectly. A quick perfect meal.

So I have been a fan of this place for many years. Some times change is not good. What happened to the creative menu? Gone! There is nothing on that menu that is interesting or gourmet. Its same old thing everyone else is serving. The reason I went to Alice's was to try something different which I was always satisfied with. Shame they sold out. Guess I'll be going to Stonewater. They lost a really good customer. By the way food is mediocre at best. Don't expect the same quality.Thank you for sharing your opinion with us. Our new menu does have a more casual theme. And even though you aren't fond of the changes - we are very excited. Let me explain. Alice's original concept was "casual" yet, we spent years experimenting with the notion of offering complex multi-tiered presentations from the kitchen. As a customer you probably noticed our seasonal menu would offer more complex dishes in winter (when volume was lower) and less complex in summer (when volume was high). However, our trials resulted in failure. Basically, our entire facility is not equipped for the 3 to 4 pan meals which are very complex and require many steps and ingredients from a the line. This inadequacy put amazing stress on our talented kitchen staff resulting mostly in spotty results which we felt was cannibalizing our customer base. Nothing loses a customer more than long ticket times, sold-out menu items, inconsistent preparation and presentation - all of which we were struggling with.We needed to admit what we were attempting to do was not working. Since we cannot build a bigger kitchen - we had to simplify the menu - which took quite a lot of planning and reflection.The change was not, as you note, a sell out. The change was to fix a broken formula which consistently disappointed patrons and ran costs through the roof and put undo stress on our staff. The new menu (which features our most successful menu items and specials we have served over the years) has enabled our kitchen to produce more reliable product with reasonable ticket times. We wanted our wait staff to be less burdened with customer complaints and focus on their job of serving happy customers.Our dedication to an above average (if not great) dining experience is stronger than ever. We believe that casual food does not need to be cheap or insulting - it is just casual. Our menu and the ingredients we offer are under constant scrutiny for customer enjoyment and quality for price. We are not selling out.Once the heavy volume summer season is behind us - we will be offering specials which will reflect the skill and talent of our kitchen staff. Customers will see many items that they recognize. Offering these as specials is a great solution as we can plan and prepare these items with utmost control over quality and production that will please customers and not sink our kitchen operations.While we are sorry that you claim you will not be back - we hope that you reconsider one day. As a side note, Stonewater is a lovely place with a large kitchen and staff too match. I think that is a fine location for more gourmet type of presentation you are after.

Nice Atmosphere. Pleasant staff. Well made and well priced bar offerings including quite a nice assortment of on tap selections including a super fresh Irish Smithwick’s!!!!All 4 of us were very pleased with our dinners but the winner of the night was my wife’s choice of a really excellent fresh fish-n-chips!If they could just do something to address the terrible acoustics ( Really Bad - literally could not hear what someone sitting across from you was saying!!!!) and a very tough parking situation- the rating here would have been excellent.

Reviewed By DetectiveofTravel

They keep the prices low by requiring everyone to buy a drink. You can buy anything from water to cosmos to wine to beer. The lobster is the big hit here as are the dozen clams that come with it. These clams are the bigger ones - - a little too chewy for my taste but for the price, who could argue! Just bring CASH!!!!!

Great food and service in a relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely be back. We enjoyed the Filet Mignon appetizer, the Teriyaki Salmon and the Flat Iron Steak very much. All the food was tasty. Coffee and Jr.'s Cheesecake topped off the meal perfectly.Last night, there was a keyboardist that added to the enjoyment. Nice touch!

Grotto Restaurant

no visit to Hopatcong is 'complete' without a stop at The Grotto. This is a small restaurant right on River Styx road, near the Bridge. The Best Pizza perhaps in New Jersey, for sure the best in Sussex County! Love it! Lots of choices, not just pizza, hot and cold subs too, and desserts are available. You won't be disappointed!

Tried Rust last night for the first time and we were happily surprised! The restaurant is very rustic and homey, but had a lively atmosphere. The Thai curry mussels with fries were on point, fresh, delicious, and well seasoned. The Reuben and the lobster Cobb salad were excellent as well! Their sherry vinaigrette is outstanding. The service was very friendly, albeit a little slow, but it was a Saturday night so that's forgiveable. All in all, a great experience and we'll definitely be back!

We went to the windlass for a large party birthday celebration. The service was good considering we were a group of 20 with individual orders. We had the short rib special which was the best we’ve ever had. Would also recommend the teriyaki wings and calamari for appetizer. Thank you for your review! The ribs are great.

We stopped by in the middle of the afternoon today for lunch. We each had a medium chicken soup with rice and an organic bottled tea, and we split a Cuban sandwich. The sandwich was tasty, the soup was good with lots of chicken and I'd especially note that the soup was not overly salted the way most establishments serve it. I forgot to ask if the rice was whole grain. The bread with the soup was very good, and the bread on the sandwich (which may have been the same) was toasted and excellent. The total price was a little more than we expected, but we didn't see an itemized bill to figure out why we were surprised.
