    I made reservations on Open Table and I contacted them on the day of my reservation just to make sure everything was set. They advise me that they do not take reservations and I only have 5 minutes to get there or they will give my table away. From that rude tone of voice I decided not even go and waste my time eating there.

    I walked all the way there in the cold after booking a reservation through opentable to find out that the kitchen was closed. Mind you this was at 8 pm! I started asking questions but the bartender was giving me an attitude so I left.

    Started out badly when Open Table let us book a reservation for 11.45 when the restaurant does not open until 12. However great experience from there. The staff let us in early. Service was excellent and the food was quite good. We had two young children with us for a pre Pru Center event and they had a great time. Would recommend.

    Overall we had a very good dining experience except for one little mishap. A waitress dropped a drink and the contents splashed all over my wife's jacket. Not a big deal because it is washable. Our only complaint was the waitress did not apologize right away. We mentioned this to our waiter (who was very apologetic) and the waitress who dropped the glass did come over to apologize and the manager gave us dessert on the house.

    Dined on 10/23/2012
    Service was worst we've had yet, and our group has been there a few other times where things were better. Our waiter was unfriendly and almost borderline rude. The food was just OK this time also. We also were overcharged because he said we didn't order "the right" burger to qualify for the $8.95 burger and brew special. We'll definitely go someplace else next time with our larger group. The place was empty, so you'd think they'd be friendlier and treat their customers nicer. Very disappointing.

    The Edison Ale House is across the street from the New Jersey Devils stadium. We went there for lunch after the season. It was not noisy or crowded and the food was good. Nice selection of entres.

    Where to start? Reservation confirmation in hand we arived with a line out the door, assured that we would be seated promptly at our 6pm time. The place seemed as expected, small, croweded full of excited hockey fans. WRONG! We were greeted by a confused staff who quickly told us that the Fail house did not take reservations, after much pestering we finally got one of the hostess to even look at the email with the confirmation, who then looked at the computer and called over the other confused staff who instructed us to wait on the lengthy line JUST SO WE CAN PUT OUR NAMES DOWN, as tables were cleaned and other parties sat. Review? Not enough space, but word of mouth is a powerful thing: our weekend was spent trashing the Edison Fail House!

    Great location if you're going to an event at the prudential Center. Very good beer selection. We had the burgers which are a little pricey but very good, but that's to be expected given the location.

    The food was fantastic, especially the risotto. Would recommend to anyone. It took us a while to get our check, but other than that the service was good. Tables were close, it was a little tight to maneuver.

    Although the menu wasn't extensive the food was better than average for pub food.Service was good and the beer selections were noteworthy. I noted this place as kid friendly but we went the night the circus was playing at Pru Center it may vary after a hockey game but the location is great if you're seeing an event.
