I would recommend this highly for dinner food. Service is friendly and quick. The menu is substantial and food quality is excellent. Deserts are fantastic. There can be a wait at popular dining hours so go on the off times.

We lived in NJ for a couple of years and the Allwood became a regular stop for dinner. Really miss it. The service was good and it was a nice relaxed place for a stop of people watching as well as good grub.
