My wife and I tried this place on a recommendation from the docent at Lambert Castle and we were quite pleased. The ambience is that of a typical sports bar, but as we were there for a very early dinner, it was quiet. The burgers we ordered were cooked to our specifications. They were moist and flavorful. I had the deluxe, which came with a side of crispy on the outside/soft on the inside fries and onion rings - delicious. The service was great, with the waitress engaging us in witty conversation. This is a great place to go for a casual dining experience.

I don't know how this does not have all 5 stars. Food is great, beer selection is excellent, and servers are on it. General Tso's tacos rock, wings are not typical mass deep fryer style yet perfectly crisped. Go out of you usual loop and get some food and setting that blows away the typical crap in Bergen County.

While on a shopping outing, my wife and I were following the GPS directions when we passed by first a Hot Dog "emporium" (River View East) with a 1940s vibe that caught our eye... and right past it... next door... the Twisted Elm. We both exclaimed as we passed the Twisted Elm, "Wow! That's place looks pretty cool!"Anyway... we continued to our destination and afterwards dropped by a local brewery (Alementary - Hackensack, NJ) for a respite. After a couple beers we were both ready for dinner. Where to go? Hmm... we had WiFi at the brewery so I Googled "Twisted Elm" and upon going over the menu we decided to dine there. On our way out I asked the bartenders if they were familiar with Twisted Elm. One perked up immediately and told us that their food was off the hook. Another good sign!Ten minutes later we were there. The parking lot was jammed; we actually got the last space in the main lot. I was thinking we might have to wait for a table (it was prime time, around 7:15 pm on a Saturday), but the hostess put us at a cozy table in the main dinning room where there was a fire going in what appeared to be an old brick pizza oven. Looked cool! AC and a fireplace! 'Merica!Anyway... REALLY friendly staff! And knowledgeable too! Nice selection of local microbrews on tap - including a sour. (I'm a huge fan of sours.) Full bar. Homemade sangria (they had a special Rose Sangria which my wife ordered; it was delicious) as well. Having had a couple beers at the brewery and with such an eclectic menu of food and drink at the Twisted Elm (with such a nice cozy setting and friendly service) we decided to order in "shifts." First my beer and my wife's sangria and an app of chicken and waffle sliders with buffalo bleu cheese mousse. Well... I was expecting LITTLE sliders; instead, the brought us a place with two "full size" sandwiches - think the size of a fast food double burger. They were DELICIOUS! (Full disclosure... a BIT spicy for my wife's taste... but a side of sour cream requested and quickly delivered to the table took care of that! Since I LOVE "buffalo bleu" no "cooling" was necessary for mine.)(Oh... and when I had ordered my first beer I'd commented on ANOTHER beer on the list - so our waitress brought me a sample without me even asking! It's little gestures like that which make an impression on me.)Anyway... after our "full sized sliders" I ordered a second (different) microbrew and as our next food course we ordered the skillet mac & cheese with short rib, caramelized onions, carrots, and bleu cheese. It was an entree portion and let me tell you... it fed BOTH of us! Furthermore, I'd call it "Short Rib AND Mac & Cheese" - THAT'S how much meat there was! This dish wasn't "flavored" with short rib; it was LOADED with short rib. Hey... $20... not cheap... BUT... you're getting your money's worth and more. Off the hook tasty! Stick to your ribs "home" cookin'!Anyway... two beers... one sangria... one app... one entree... with tax $61. Great setting. Convenient location minutes from multiple highways. (This is Jersey, remember!) Oh... and back to "the little things; the gestures"... the chef came out to introduce himself. I like that! The chef and the staff take pride in what they do. That MATTERS. Anyway... I highly recommend the Twisted Elm. They have a good website. Check it out. Photos... menus... their story...Check out the website and my review here will resonate.

My wife & I have been to Jimmy Geez numerous times and each time we enter with an open mind that the service and food will get better... unfortunately, they haven't. I will give credit where credit is due; their wings are the best around. However, we can't say that about the rest of the menu. The food appears to be prepared in advance and slapped together as my meatball sandwich, was not only dry to lack of sauce but the miniscule meatballs were obviously overcooked as they verged on black. As for the service, the wait staff are magicians as they appear and then disappear as it seems they are more interested in chatting amongst themselves or friends that happen to show up at the bar; rather then attending to their customers.. Again, in the spirit of fair play the bus boys are more attentive. Like I said this isn't the first time we have been to Jimmy Geez, it's a local bar that attracts a good crowd but the food and service struck out !

Tucked away in the suburb of Hawthorne is this gem of a restaurant. Entering the parking lot your greeted by valet service making the visit comfortable unless your the type that prefers self-parking. The hostess was charming and seated us immediately. I recommend reservations. A full service bar that has a mixologist expertly making any drink you desire. After a few cocktails we began an assortment of appetizers and then our entree's. The filet was cooked with the exact temperature and delicious Their wine list is not so typical with varietals from Africa and other regions from around the world. An all around great experience.

We came in for a quick bite. When we left we could hardly wait to come back. The variety was tremendous. Very good tacos and BBQ pork sandwich better than the south. Even the French fries were superb. We started with a gourmet quality lobster bisque. it is a bar room and the jukebox was noisy. Service was good.
