Demented Brewing Company

Reviewed By Kevin B - Mount Juliet, Tennessee

This is a great local brewery! I came here this past week as I heard they were a great brewery and I really enjoyed coming here. The tasting area is small, but they have tables in the brewery itself, so there's room for larger groups. The tasters are affordable ($2-3.5 each) and they have a variety of styles, which were all really good; I particularly enjoyed their IPAs and their wee heavy. The staff were kind and it's just a fun place overall!

Washington Rock State Park

Reviewed By CobbCoGA - Marietta, Georgia

From a facilities stand-point (there are none that I could see, including restrooms), this isn't much of a park. There was a bit of garbage about, but not too much. There is a short hiking trail over rocky soil and parking is available. So only 1 star for the park as a facility... Now the view... It's amazing. It's worth it just to look at that view. Look left you've got the skyline of New York City. There is also that standing where George Washington stood thing, if you're a history buff. There's also no admission, so what the heck, stop by if you're in the area. (I wouldn't say go too far out of your way though.)

Dunnellen Cinema Cafe

Reviewed By Jeremy31Virgo - Middlesex, New Jersey

Been here more than a dozen times, this time on opening night of Captain America: Civil War. We could not find seats on the main level and were among the first ones upstairs. There are a few chairs that don't work or are not comfortable so you get a feel for places you like to sit here. I was pleasantly surprised with how well they handled all the food orders and it didn't take forever like it did during Minions. My son loves it here so we have booked his birthday party here for this summer. Only issue we had was we could hear music from the kitchen and could not hear the movie. Someone went down to complain and they did some combination of closing the door and/or raising the volume of the movie. Either way it was resolved.

Johnson Park

Reviewed By barry88 - Hillsborough, New Jersey

The overall park is pretty nice, there is good walking area right on the water and of course they have a very mini zoo. The animals are fine, some could be looked after a little better (chickens were getting pecked like crazy and bloody). This is a nice place to spend if you have an hour or two to kill. It's also free which is a big plus

Reviewed By William S - Clinton, New Jersey

Just saw America perform this week--great concert and perfect example of how the State Theatre brings in many nostalgic bands in addition to children's events, a Broadway series with hot shows on Broadway, blues and jazz, comedians, and much more. Prices are reasonable compared to...MoreThanks William - glad you enjoyed the show!

Watchung Lake

Reviewed By TonyK300 - New Jersey

Great little lake for walking (almost exactly a mile around) that breaks up the monotony of doing so with views of the lake, and surrounding residences one of which is a privately owned mansion. There is another body of water just steps from this one by this one has the nicest views. Park near the dam just past the gas station on the circle. There is restricted fishing (watch for signs) and there is a wonderful restaurant just steps away from the parking lot (Water & Wine) . Great place for a scenic walk or just to hang out as the area lacks these kind of amenities.

Roosevelt Park

Reviewed By YatriForever - Chennai

We used to visit this park in late 90s when we were living in Iselin. When we visited a few weeks ago, we were delighted to see the park so much improved with facilities and upkeep. There are spots for picnics, playing, place for artists to perform and everything a good community park should have. Felt very nice to be here.

Take a walk through the park any time of the year. We went in early March and enjoyed a brisk walk on the path. Midway, the park was quiet and peaceful. The scenery is an interesting break from the hustle bustle of the city.

Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park

Reviewed By Alan4B - Horsham, Pennsylvania

Did a loop from Lambertville to Washington Crossing over to PA up to New Hope. Easy ride. crushed gravel/cinders on NJ side, a bit more rocky on the PA side. Lots of varied scenery, saw many different waterfowl, turtles and fish. Had a chance to see the Durham boat used for the Washington's Crossing re-enactments that occur every December. Lots of historic markers to see, including a Revolutionary War memorial to unknown soldiers that died before the crossing. Lots of restaurants to choose from in New Hope. Great for all riding levels. NJ side is much more bicycle friendly with bike racks in Lambertville - New Hope not so much.

Beautiful grounds and buildings. Farmers market (limited dates) was very interesting with many types of foods to sample and buy. Outdoor market was primarily veggies. An alternate area was available to get information on the grounds and activities for the environment. Also had hiking and bicycle paths. Would be very nice to go spring or early fall. I think tours are available by reservation.
