I went on a Friday night when the place was busy. Despite this the service was prompt. My brisket was great but my ribs a bit dry. Baked beans were to die for. Fries were fine but the portion was very small. There was an...MoreHi Complicated Disaster, Thank you for visiting Hot Rod's Real Pit BBQ!

Love the food and the people! Enjoyed delicious tuna while my husband had chicken pot pie. The portions are plentiful and flavorful. A varied menu with seasonal specials including kale salad and also small corn on the cob. Fish is always a good choice and Irish favorites like bangers and mash, shepherd's pie, and fish 'n chips are great. We frequent this pub cause surroundings, people, and food are the best.

We were the first to arrive on a Thursday night around 5:30 pm. The service staff were replacing bulbs in what we were told were new light fixtures. The maitre'd (or owner? not sure) greeted us warmly and welcomed us to the restaurant. He is the one who told us about the new lighting. Enrique was our waiter and seemed to be the waiter for at least five or so tables - assisted with a large staff who served - and then another waiter jumped in. Very capable, very attentive. It seemed that most of the other diners were regulars. Also in the time we ordered quite a few people headed to the bar. We had the veal osso bucco ($42) which was a Fred Flintstone size portion served with pasta and veggies. Also had the shrimp with wild mushrooms, asparagus, and sun-dried tomatoes ($23.50) in a pernod sauce with parmesan mashed potatoes and veggies (carrots/broccoli). Salad is included. Also great bread which we did a number on - some with butter and some with olive oil that Enrique was kind enough to offer us. Then had cappuccino ($5) and got several delicious little biscotti. The new lighting created a nice, warm cozy ambiance - not sure what the old lighting was like....but atmosphere is very nice. Tables are far enough apart that you can have a conversation and have it be private.

Their flavors are unique. Some are very flavorful and some are not. As with all reviews it all depends on time of day, who mixed the batch and the most important the taster him/her self. Everyone has different tastes and this will affect the review.
Always busy and always difficult to park. This is the place for ice cream cakes.

I stopped in for a quick bagel and coffee. The bagel was CRISPY outside and soft on the inside. I have to say perfect. Looks like the regulars hanging out at the tables outside saying morning to everyone. Seems like a nice local place. Will go back A LOT

We've been here multiple times and have always had great service and fantastic food. We like sitting at the booths in the bar area, but they have nice dining rooms, also. Our favorites for lunch are the sausage, peppers and onion sandwich on rustic bread, meatball sandwich, minnestrone soup, and the steak and brie sandwich. The portions are large, and we like taking home the leftovers! The owner is very social and we enjoy talking to him.

Cliffs has always been one of the best ice cream shops in New Jersey. My wife and I were here a few days ago and the quality hasnt changed. We look forward to coming here every summer. Its worth a drive out here.

A Sunday morning meetup group, about 20 of us. Fabulous service by Christina ! She took drink orders, she refilled coffees, she was totally on the ball.... I had a white sangria which was just yummy. I also had the eggs benedict and they were PERFECT. Have been so disappointed ordering that in the last few years at other places. This is a gorgeous place inside, I will definitely be back ! My check was 21 plus tip. A lovely time, I believe everyone enjoyed it ! (and we had a total vegan and also a gluten-free diner).

Wanted to see what all of the fuss is about. Can’t explain it! The food was average at best. The steamed clams are good. Lobster was okay, a little dry and barely legal size.The tossed salad was horrible. Yellow iceberg, a couple of tomatoe slices and an onion slice. Steak was okay. Nothing really looked appetizing or appealing. Drinks were cheap. The ambiance is unexplainable. Both dining areas are surrounded by hundreds of wildlife heads and mounted fish. At first it’s amusing, but becomes a little creepy considering all of these beautiful dead animals and the amount of money that was spent to present them this way. We’ve seen better tables and chairs at bingo! Service was good. Satisfied our curiosity. Will not go back.

Great variety of great bagels and bagel sandwiches and the egg salad and tuna salad are really good on onion or everything bagels. The cream cheese is excellent. Be prepared to wait at lunchtime but worth the wait. The staff are all business so don't expect any friendly conversation.
