A word from Glen Gardner Inn
Welcome to the Glen Gardner Inn

We feature distinguished dining in a historic, country inn setting. Our menu offers both full size and small plate portions. Our wine list consists of great vineyard names at value prices. In the Tap Room, we have the best available imported and domestic craft and micro-brewed beers on draft.


SMALL PLATE OFFERINGS AT THE GLEN GARDNER INN
The Inn offers most of its entrées in a half-sized portion option. By ordering and sharing many small plates, you can sample an
array of culinary treats, and without over ordering, satisfy a desire for taste exploration. This concept has been enthusiastically received at the Inn where diners are enjoying the experience of designing their own small plate medley or swapping and sampling around the table.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT RESERVATIONS MADE THROUGH OPEN TABLES ARE NOT ELIGABLE TO RECEIVE FREQUENT DINER POINTS. FREQUENT DINER POINTS WILL NOT BE AWARDED ON THOSE TABLE CHECKS.

    This is an intimate and quaint historic Inn which the owners restored faithfully. The standard menu was well enough but the specials were unique with some wonderful choices. They also are a full pub with many brews and a fine wine list. The server and the support people were phenomenal. The food was of the highest quality and every mouthful was an experience. They use locally grown ingredients and it shows in yhe oustanding flavors. I had the Sea Bass that was done to perfection with a perfect balance of flavor and texture. The Roasted Chicken was so moist and cooked perfectly which left us with a wonderful experience. The Strawberry Shortcake was the finale which finished off a perfect evening. We will be regulars!

    Consistently excellent - every entrée choice I have had at the Glen Gardner has been excellent - my scallop entrée was far better than any I have had at Jersey shore restaurants. This is definitely one of my 3 top restaurants in NJ.

    I have found the Glen Gardner Inn to be consistently excellent in food and service. Their red snapper special was, by far, the best fish entrée I have eaten this year - thin, moist, flavorful, and well accompanied for a perfect meal.

    Consistently excellent dining. Both my duck breast entrée and my wife's salmon were prepared and served perfectly. The entire meal was an enjoyable dining experience - - from the cocktails and wine, to the excellent friendly service. White tablecloths, a fresh rose and lit candle on the table add to making it a romantic dining spot.

    We had been there several time but not over the past year. So decided to go for a night out. Cant remember why we stopped going there. Food and service great in a beautiful setting. No complaints. I had the scallop appetizer while husband had the beet salad both were great. The main course for me was the duck breast (cooked to perfection) and my husband enjoyed his ravioli very much. Will be returning soon.

    We were seated promptly and the staff was attentive to our needs. We enjoyed the appetizers and main course of sea bass. The wine was reasonably priced. Dessert was very good and was a fitting end to a very nice dining experience.

    The folks here have the right idea. The noise put me off when entering initially, but after we were seated the amazement began. Our selections were all fresh, flavorful and demanded our completion! Scallops wrapped in bacon with spinach and gruyere was truly inspired. This normally perfect dish was taken beyond perfection by adding the cheese and bright green leaves. The beet napoleon was a savory and sweet melody of beet, mild goat cheese, orange and apple. Butternut squash ravioli with sage cream sauce was light and boasted several texture within pockets of perfection. Duck breast with cranberry and pear chutney was exquisite and was cooked to my desired temperature.Desserts were wonderful as well. Beer and wine selections were great too!

    Right from the start the night was good, we had an excellent server named Peggy. The french onion soup was delicious, my Dad's favorite soup and he tries it in every restaurant in Hunterdon County. From the appetizers of coconut shrimp and mussles to the unbelievable seared scallops and good sauerbratten. Desert was apple strudel, should give it a try if you have room! My coffee was hot (yeah) but honestly, I had a chocolate martini to die for!!! Thank you Glen Gardner Inn for a very enjoyable evening with my 87 year old Dad!!! The rest of my family is eager to try the Inn and I look forward to a return visit.
