we go here occasionally for dinner. The crabcake sandwich is just yummy as is the chocolate brownie dessert. Prices are good and the atmosphere in the bar area is very nice. Not crazy about the dining room area as there is no atmosphere in there

Food was great, atmosphere was wonderful, we had to wait 20 minutes to sit down as there were only two staff running ragged. All in all, very nice, huge portions, and friendly (but too few) staff.

My family and I typically love this restaurant due to the food and service. Recently though, we came on a Sunday afternoon when it was not very busy. Unfortunately, service took so long that it felt like the restaurant was being slammed (they weren't). We will be back with the hopes that the kitchen and the service will be faster.

Near the train station, this was a nice place to eat and relax. The upstairs room was much quieter for conversation over dinner. Staff was attentive and burgers were tasty. Try the asiago fries. Good.

Had dinner recently at CT and, as always, it's a very nice and reasonably priced restaurant in Bernardsville for great salads, burgers, etc. We always enjoy the food, service and casual atmosphere.

Publike atmosphere with adjacent, white tablecloth dining area. Lunch on a Tuesday found only Brian (bartender,waiter,server, busboy,and cashier) to do everything for all customers.He was very friendly and did a remarkable good job. The Classic Burger and The Turkey Burger (we split them) took a very long time to prepare and the ingredients could have been better quality and better... More

Low key, casual, family-friendly, lots of TVs, private dining room available for booking events: popular high school sports fund-raiser or end of season banquet spot. Craft beers, top shelf spirits, and lots of mid to low priced alcohol beverages. Unique in that it's family friendly early in the evening, but good for catching a game later on.

The Claremont has the best berger in the area. They top off the burgers with two good sized onion rings. Unfortunately the onion rings are very greasy.

We were just driving through and looking for a place to eat lunch. This place looked cosy and attractive so we decided to try it and I am glad we did. I ordered a crabcake burger. It was generous, well seasoned and came on a brioche. My friend ordered a portabello burger and enjoyed it very much.
