We eat there about once a month. Food was OK as usual. Nothing to write home about, and is usually a good place for burgers and a beer. Service is usually mediocre; again nothing to write home about. The service this time was worse than normal. The female waitress, who has been there for ages, takes the check back with... More

A group of us went to the Crows Nest for lunch for our annual holiday party and I was a little disappointed with the food. Not that the food was bad but most of the table's food arrived cold or over-cooked to the table as if it had been sitting under a heat lamp for a period of time. I... More

I went there for lunch with a friend and was given a large comfortable booth and was able to spend a leisurely afternoon enjoying the fare. We requested Hugo to wait on us because he treats us like royalty. I had the lobster and avocado salad, which was fresh, plentiful and delicious. My friend had the seafood salad but didn't... More

We went out for a German Octoberfest special. Not hard to find with plenty of parking. The place was all dressed up for the coming Halloween. Its a big place. The menu is too big, offering too many choices telling me there is no focus. We each chose something different. I chose the veal schnitzel. The other choice we tried... More

Very casual place with some fine dishes. Good for hanging out to watch sports or to just chill at the bar. Also, good for family dinners. Very laid back and relaxed atmospher.

I went there with 4 friends on what turned out to be their "midway to St. Patrick's Day night." There were shamrock decorations and a short entertainment by bagpipers (luckily not long because they were too loud for us to have a conversation), plus some Irish specials on the menu. One of my friends ordered the unlimited corned beef and... More

At the Teterboro airport frequently. This is fairly close to the Hilton in Hasbrouck Heights. We always walk to this restaurant. It doesn't look like much from the outside but inside it has character. Looks to be family owned/run. Service is very good. They have a very robust menu and portions are big. I have never left hungry and the... More

Dinner here was very good from a wide ranging menu with focus on Italian dishes. Very pleasant and attentive staff, who truly seemed to cater to diners' needs and requests. In a busy location and obviously quite popular with the locals. A good sign.

I went here for my birthday a couple of weeks ago. I remember it being better. Also our waitress had an attitude of she'd rather be anywhere but there!

No longer often in the area so when we visited we decided to relive many good times.I was looking forward to my french dip roast beef and potato skins. The place still looks like a good place to hang out and for drinks.The skins were burnt, the roast beef was smaller then I remember and tasteless.Fries tasted stale and cold.... More
