Was headed to Greece and trying to get my stomach ready for some Mediterranean food. So I had the rough equivalent of a gyro with grilled chicken. It was quite tasty! The vegetables were fresh and the chicken was nicely grilled. I was feeling pretty lucky having had two decent airport meals in two days between SFO and EWR! First... More

Having arrived at Newark and time to kill before my train I stopped here for lunch. Service was very slow considering there were very few people here, so beware if you have a plane to catch! Food was worth the wait, very nice chicken Cesar salad.

Slowest service we have ever had in an airport. If you need to be quick you will have to get after the staff to get you out. The food was good. Warning: Chicken Caesar salad is enough to feed four or two if you want to be stuffed.

Much better than the fast food places - but food served up pretty fast. I liked the crispy chicken in the whole wheat wrap. Tried the creole slaw but would have enjoyed sweet potato fries more. The place had high prices. Serves Stella Artois. Music is from bygone years. Has salads and all day breakfast too. The 50s style milk... More

In between flights I stopped here and had a (Blackened) Chicken & Cheddar Sandwich on a brioche roll. The chicken was smothered in BBQ sauce - a piece I broke off was tasteless so the sauce helped. The cheese stringy and bacon chewy but the roll was delicious, moist and full of flavour. What was blackened, I'm not sure -... More

We had a nice server, food was above average. Prices were on the high side but we were not going back out once we arrived. Happy hour has bargains on draft beers, wines. Food had good portions.

Large menu and quick friendly service. If you need to eat before your flight, this is a great and "cute" place to stop. Much better than most fast food restaurants, the food is fresh, a little pricey like most airport food, but at least it is delicious and plentiful.

We came as a family of four and wanted to have lunch. This was during the Eurocup, July 2nd an we asked to sit in the section where they were showing the game. We were told that the section was not in use. We asked for either an exception or if they could switch one of the other TVs to... More

The food was good, but when we paid, the beer was 12 $. That is more expensive than any draft beer we have ever had. Even in the good places on NYC!

Certainly better than a fast food spot. Decent menu selection and fast service. Good draft beer selection. Mushroom Swiss cheese burger was good. Cooked as requested bConvenient for sending off folks on gates B60-65. Not sure of food options after security. Overall a good place to recharge before security. Or while dropping off departing passengers.
