    My husband, his friend and I enjoyed our meals immensely! My husband and his friend could not stop raving about the steaks they ate. His friend had the French Onion soup and I had the chilled blueberry soup and we loved it! My husband truly enjoyed the coconut shrimp. We saved room for dessert and were glad we did...divine desserts!

    A trip once again to Robin's Nest didn't disappoint us. As usual the food was great and custom made around specific changes we asked for. The changes are never a problem or additional cost here! My wife had the Caesar salad, one of her favorites. I asked they substitute Feta cheese for the Bleu lime salad,they did. For dinner we had the Pecan crusted chicken and the Pompeii chicken. I have to say that if they had left out the capellini pasta or put it on the side, the Pompeii entree would have been better. However, topped off with a fresh Peach/Blueberry cobbler for dessert made the night almost perfect. What did go over the top was an attentive yet busy waitress, Lauren. She was more than hospitable, went above and beyond. wing.

    We made a reservation to have dinner before a local music event called Hollystock (like Woodstock, get it?). Our son was playing drums in one of the bands. It was a good thing we had a reservation. There were no outdoor tables left though, but I like the indoors better in this case. The place was low-key, casual mood, with a nice, quiet crowd. I ordered two appetizers, a pizza hor d'oeuvre and coconut shrimp. The shrimp was delicious and the pizza was just ok. Our son showed up and we had a very nice meal. Good place!

    We always enjoy the Robins Nest. On our most recent visit, it was a beautiful summer night and we dined outdoors on the patio over looking the creek. There were ducks and geese swimming by. It was so pleasant! Since it was a Friday night, they also had a guitar player and he was very enjoyable. Food and service were terrific. One of our favorite restaurants!

    This is a comfortable, perfect spot for a dinner or Sunday brunch in an underrated little area of Burlington County in Mount Holly. It's in a well located spot, right on one of the main corners in town and which has an adequately sized parking lot available just a short walk from the front door. I had an item for dinner from the specials list and that is exactly what it was, special. The three others with me for dinner all provided me with glowing descriptions of how good their selections were as well. Don't pass this up just because it's in Mount Holly or it's not a chain or for any other reason. Music every Friday night as well, with an adequate bar menu if you'd just like a drink, snack and some music on a Friday night.

    This was my first experience, but not my last, at Robin's Nest. The French Onion soup was just outstanding - the best I've had since I made Julia Child's recipe years ago. I had the salmon cakes - all salmon,onion and sweet red pepper - simply the most delicious this side of Alaska. My dining partner had the chicken sandwich and raved about it. I plan on bringing family back for birthday lunches. Dessert - a black walnut cake - rich yet light cake with real buttercream icing - shared- a lucious end to this oustanding lunch.

  • Good Meal At Robin's Nest
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIP
    Dined on 7/18/2014
    4th time at restaurant. Wanted outside but were told all tables reserved. Inside is okay. Feels like dining at an older aunt's house. Quaint with pillows on the bench seats along window and lots of photos. Don't get me wrong, we actually enjoy it. Service was good. Wanted to order the 3 martini sampling, but were inexplicably told that the glasses were not set up for the sampling. Not sure why someone couldn't have washed six glasses?? The soup du jour (ham and bean) was top notch. Perfectly seasoned with lots of ham and nicely cooked beans. Entrees were a mixed bag. Rack of lamb special wonderful, but the Pompeii chicken overly seasoned to the point that there was no chicken flavor left. Good meal, not great, but will return.

  • Wonderful Date Night
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 7/12/2014
    We went to the Robin's Nest for our Anniversary and loved it. The food was wonderful and came out perfectly cooked, both our entrees and starter. The best part was dessert- the lemon cheesecake that I had is worth a return trip, just desserts! There was live music and no young children, which was a wonderful change of pace for us. We sat outside and there was an issue with the bugs, but it was outside so I understand. However, the outdoor chairs are plastic chairs, which seemed a little strange since the inside appeared to be pretty high scale. Wonderful little place in Mt. Holly. We would definitely return here for date night again.

    What a great little surprise in a small quaint town. Great outdoor dining overlooking a small river surrounded by trees. Food was excellent!! We had the ahi tuna and Chilean sea bass - both outstanding. We ate here prior to a jazz show at the Firehouse Cafe, just a few steps away - how convenient! After the show, we hear some great singing coming from the Robin's Nest, decided to stop in for some decadent desserts and entertainment, what a great decision!

    We spent over $150 for 4 and for that I would expect better than good. But our experiance was not even good. I ordered the Brisket which should melt in your mouth if cooked correctly. My brisket was very tough. Another one of my party ordered the Veal. This dish was tasteless (including the mashed potatoes that came with it) My wife had the vegitarian mushroom platter and the portabella mushroom had the texture of styrofoam. We heard a lot about the Robins Nest and this was our first time there. I was very disapointed with the meal considering the price. Needless to say we will not go back there or recommend this place to anyone

    As always, the food and service at Robin's Nest was excellent. Our server was attentive without being intrusive and fulfilled our every request promptly and graciously. The fire roasted tomato ravioli was delicious and my husband really enjoyed the sesame seed crusted tuna. The NY strip steaks with Gorgonzola butter were tender and flavorful. The Bacon Bleu Cheese Fries were tasty, although I found the cheese to be quite pungent. And the desserts were to die for! It was hard to choose with all the choices available. Looking forward to our next visit!

    I live in Philadelphia but whenever I visit my aunt who lives in Burlington, New Jersey we usually go to the Robin's Nest for lunch. We have never been disappointed with any meal that we have had. On our last visit we sat outside and was able to enjoy the beautiful weather. I would highly recommend the Robin's Nest to anyone who is visiting the beautiful town of Mount Holly, NJ.
