We don't go often, but when we do we aren't disappointed. The speciality beers make my husband smile and some of the creole inspired dishes make me sing (well, not literally). The kids love this place and so do my parents. Really enjoyable with friendly staff.

Attended an excellent performance by Blues Rock artist Eliza Neals and had an terrific meal. I had the fish tacos with fried Brussels spouts. Another had the coconut shrimp and two others had the roasted cauliflower hash -- all parties were completely satisfied. Good fun, friendly service, great music - how can you go wrong? Certainly will go back!

We ate here while staying with friends in Maplewood, which is a very pretty town. Food was good. My husband had the Chicken Goujons, I had the crock of Mature cheddar and crackers. We also had a very good Marlborough at a reasonable price. Went back the next day for more!

South Mountain Tavern

Reviewed By hiltonkhh

I want this restaurant to succeed. But, sadly, changing the name has done little to impact the sub-par food and service. I went for lunch, with an out of town guest - and was, frankly, embarrassed, by the quality of the food and the service.Hopefully, the owners are hard at work training the kitchen and service staff.This place has tremendous potential.

Brisket sandwich was tasty and tender but not enough meat and a bit fatty. Pulled Pork platter was good and generous portions. Service was friendly and efficient and the place is comfortable. Coleslaw and sweet potato fries were decent. Cornbread was average and broccoli casserole was not so good. Overall and enjoyable meal. Thank you for your positive recommendation. We love getting feedback from our customers and are happy to hear about how great your experience was. We look forward to seeing you the next time you stop by from some mouthwatering BBQ!Thanks again!!

MoonShine Modern Supper Club

Reviewed By bruin1994

Went here with a few friends from the area. The appetizers decent, especially the charcuterie. The tuna tartare was overpowered by a very salty avocado mousse so I didn’t enjoy it. I ordered the pad Thai and it was a disaster. It tasted like vinegar and the chicken it was served with had been pounded to the consistency of shoe leather and the only thing you could taste was salt. It was served with peanuts but had no peanut flavor. Drinks were good and they do have a massive selection, especially beer. I won’t return. By the way, it seems like a lot of the 5 star reviews for this place are from individuals with very few reviews. Hmmmm.

Star Tavern

Reviewed By jaimegut23

Give me a relaxed welcoming environment serving great food over a uptight fancy pants restaurant serving overpriced food every time. Star Pizzeria did not disappoint. Here I will say that it's everything that makes it great. The chill bar with lots of tables, tv's, locals, cheap beer, and good food. We ordered a plain and pepporni pizza. The pizza was crispy, cheesy, and tasty. It was good in a thin crust bar style pizza is good. Would I go back just for the pizza? Probably not but if someone wants good food, cheap drinks, and a casual atmosphere. Star Tavern is a great spot.

Papillon 25

Reviewed By YayeMama

Southern-style menu coupled with great jazz music, some evenings live, and great cocktails make this a phenomenal place in South Orange village. Located on busy Valley Street, you need to find street parking or walk from one of the parking lots closer to the train station. The decor is very tasteful and the service is wonderful. With a great selection of foods, both for those who prefer small plates to those who want a larger meal, this place is the real deal!

Bunny's Sports Bar

Reviewed By crapschick

If you're one of those people who want to watch sports while you eat good food then you can't go wrong at Bunny's. There are screens everywhere so you won't miss out on any game. Meanwhile, the garlic salad is fantastic and HUGE. It's for at least 2 people so keep that in mind when you order it. And it's chock full of pepperoni, cheese, veggies, etc.The pizza is terrific. I love the dough especially.The service was good as well.

Coda Kitchen and Bar

Reviewed By X9826JKdavids

We visited Coda expecting great food and service. The food was ok. I enjoyed the shrimp soup and blackened chicken sandwich. Friends had the short rib grilled cheese which he raved about. The baby back ribs were a bit dry on the inside and quite saucy on the outside. The waitress was a bit abrupt at times and unnecessarily confrontational. For example my friend who was on a diet asked for a little slaw with his grilled cheese sandwich. The waitress said they didn’t have slaw. When the ribs came out they had slaw. Really!!Didn’t appreciate the non effort to make him happy over a few tablespoons of slaw. I blame mgt for that. Overall, Coda was OK. Will probably return.
