We had lunch here on a Sunday-had made a reservation just in case and were surprised that the place was fairly empty at 2:00. Maybe it was the cold weather. Our server-Maddie was great-very friendly, informative and attentive. The food was great--3 of us had different burgers and 1 had the pear salad. We were all happy. The place is... More

The second day I ordered the coriander and crusted Salmon entree with brussel sprouts slaw and it was quite delicious. The... More

I continue to be impressed by how NJAJ's great food and good service is so consistent. What I really like about the restaurant in my neighborhood is that the ambiance is so warm and welcoming. Sitting at the bar for half price appetizers M-F before 6pm is a GREAT deal and if you like raw oysters, you can't beat their... More

I got the Waldorf salad and my dad got the swordfish. My salad was great but my dads swordfish had an off putting sauce and the sides were weird. We had drinks too and they were good. We ate at the bar cause there was a wait but it was a nice experience. I would go back if in the... More

Hi Caitlin, I am glad to hear that you and your dad enjoyed your visit overall but I am disappointed to hear that he did not thoroughly enjoy our swordfish special. Please extend my apology to him.

Outstanding bread and oil but save room for the rest. Large portions, nice variety of pub foods with a twist. Fun and noisy space, good drink specials and a menu that changes with the seasons. This small restaurant chain is consistent, fun, reasonably priced, and a local favorite.

We have eaten there several times, with for lunch and dinner. It is especially great for a family since they give the kids refill free for their drinks. The wood fired oven makes great pizza and any other selection, such as their chicken or fish is delicious Service is also excellent.
