Great restaurant with great meal, drinking options and fantastic service. It is not cheap, but the quality of meal and service pays it off. Must do in case you look for a good steak.

As I was growing up, I spent many pleasant dinners at Rods with my Father, Mother and siblings. I recently visited Rods Steak and Seafood Grille with my family to celebrate a milestone wedding anniversary. We ate in the traincar which is a Pullman dining car transplanted from the rails of yesteryear to modern times. We all ordered appetizers, the... More

Good food and a nice place! I stayed at the Madison Hotel and this is the restaurant that is in the hotel area. I was very positively surprised and really liked the place. Two nice bars and a pleasant resturant with several good options on the menu.

We have done several business happy hour gatherings at Rod's. The appetizers are really good, not too noisy, conducive to conversations. Parking is a breeze. Good for a quick bite, or full dinner. Nice selection of beers.

I had always lived this place BUT tonight we had the worst service. Over a month ago we reserved the rail car. The service was slow an unattractive. The food was okay. I think the wait staff was distracted and uninterested. I live the ambience but I will never dine here again.

I'm from Massachusetts and what a pleasant surprise when I discovered this awesome restaurant while staying at the Madison Hotel when I was on a trip to NJ.

First visit to this location. We went for an 80th birthday dinner. The decor was old world elegant. The service was a bit stiff and did not pay attention to detail. Waiter was not listening when asked questions, then was rude. Proper attention was placed on mentioned allergy. The steaks were tender, and yes they were delicious. Lobster macaroni was... More

Description
Welcome to New Jersey's Legendary Steak House

Rod's Steak & Seafood Grille, an area landmark and winner of New Jersey Monthly's 'Best Steakhouse' award, offers lunch and dinner daily as well as the finest Sunday Brunch in New Jersey.

The restaurant's new design, rich wood paneling and highly polished brass, lends a classic elegance to the sophisticated atmosphere. For an intimate and unique experience, dinner aboard the private Parlour Cars is sure to be remembered. Formerly the private domain of the rich and famous, these beautifully refurbished, turn of the century railway cars are exquisitely complimented by the haute cuisine of Rod's esteemed Executive Chef.
