Robin's Nest Restaurant
Took a FriendA couple of us invited a friend who just moved to NJ. She was delighted! The hostess kindly accommodated our seating request.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall we really enjoyedOverall we really enjoyed our dining experience here. The food was very good. My husband had the crab cakes and said he thought they were some of the best he's ever had. He often chooses crab cakes. The grilled shrimp appetizer was a great choice also. We especially enjoyed the cranberry walnut pie for dessert. It was something we'd never had before and was delicious! Two things keep this rating at 4 stars: the beer selection wasn't very good and the service was a bit slow even though they were not very busy. We do love eating outdoors and their patio seating was just as we had hoped. It was relaxed, cozy and romantic. We also very much enjoyed the live entertainment that was featured that evening. Great night out!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent--Great FindMy husband and I dined here for our anniversary. When we made our reservation we requested outdoor seating and received a table right by the creek. It was such a nice atmosphere. The food was fabulous. We had the andouille sausage appetizer, a salmon entree and the crab cake entree. Everything was well prepared, full of flavor and reasonably priced. There were several interesting drink selections but the Mojito was the best I've had. Deserts are made on the premises and you need to save room! The waiter and staff were very attentive--our glasses were never empty and the table was promptly cleared of dishes. Overall it was a very nice dining experience and we will definitely be returning.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMI went to dinner with twoI went to dinner with two family members and 2 of the 3 dinners were very good. My dinner however was bland. It was a special, veal oscar, and the veal was perfectly cooked but it was not seasoned properly and the hollandiase was tasteless. We loved the chicken cheese steak spring rolls and the mushroom soup was was great. We split a huge piece of red velvet cake for dessert and it was awesome. Coffee was excellent too.
We would go back and I would recommend it to others. just not the Veal Oscar!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing for a romantic eveningWe sat outside for our meal and the view of the creek was very peaceful. The service was very good and our server had a very good knowledge of the menu and made some good recommendations. The food was outstanding, with a special emphasis on the dessert and the variety of choices for it. I had the french onion soup as an appetizer and it was one of the best I've ever had. The variety of food on the menu for entrees was good with something for every taste. My girlfriend had the key lime pie for dessert and was raving about it. I had the German Chocolate cake and it was amazingly rich. We would highly recommend Robin's Nest to anyone looking for a nice, relaxing or romantic evening.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Little RestaurantI was visiting Fort Dix, NJ and fellow soldiers ate here at lunch and raved about it. I went there that evening and was not disappointed in the least. Food was outstanding, the atmosphere was perfect, the waitress was the best! I can't say anything negative about Robin's Nest in Mount Holly, NJ!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is full of surprises!This is the 3rd time I ate at Robin's Nest, and I was completely delighted with all 3 experiences. This last time, I was there for a business lunch and we sat outside. Who knew the deck was right on the water and I would see ducks swimming by? I felt like I was on a verandah in New Orleans, tucked away behind the restaurant. Even as the deck filled up with patrons, it was quiet and private. Everything was delicious, from the iced tea served in a pretty glass bottle, to the asparagus, brie, and bacon flatbread pizza lunch special. Always a pleasure to dine here!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMA great reason to visit Mt. Holly.The Robin's Nest is a very cool place to go for brunch. It's nestled in a great part of Mt. Holly limited to a few blocks near the court house. The food is solid, but certainly not great. The specialy drinks are inventive and change every week. Everyone get's a complimentary scone of the day. The service is quick and the meals are served rather quickly as well. The very best part of this restaurant is the outdoor area down on the canal. It's unexpected the first time you go, but it's a beautiful place to have brunch. We also come during the winter and sit in the front near the windows. All in all, we love to take friends and family here and expect to do so for many years to come.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a special night out.Our recent meal at the Robin's Nest was to celebrate a military retirement. No one left the table hungry or disappointed. Main entrees range from $18-28, and drinks are a little pricey, but not unexpected in this caliber of restaurant. The desserts are always top notch. The staff was attentive but not overbearing.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFinding a new friend!What a great nigh! EVERYONE was so friendly, helpful, and very, very nice! I cannot get over how GREAT everyone and everything was from the food, to the atmosphere, to the people (staff and patrons) and the scenic food! And of course, the entertainment, The Jersey Boomers were fantastic as always! Great dinner music! Cannot wait to again and spend more time in this quaint and historical town!
Thank you to all at The Robin's Nest for making our dining experience very enjoyable, special and memorable! Everyone should visit!
Peter and Tammy5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Mother's Day BrunchChose Robin's Nest for Mother's Day Brunch as it was last minute the only place I could get reservations for a group of 7. Having not been there previously, I wasn't sure what we were in. However, we got there to find it a well oiled machine for a busy day's brunch- food was all fresh and brunch bar was consistently refilled. The service was great- seeing I had my hands full with young children at the brunch bar, a member of waitstaff overheard me tell my son I would try to find strawberries for him. The next thing I knew, the waiter came over to us with a plate of strawberries "so that I didn't have to wait in line with the kids". Robin's Nest does a great job balancing better dining while accomodating families- we'll definitely be back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day brunchWent for mother's day brunch and had a great experience. Selection was fantastic and all food was phenomenal! Staff was very friendly. Would,go,back in a heartbeat!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for Mother's Day BrunchWe went for Mother's Day Brunch and it was incredible. Food was exceptional as was the service5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable experienceWe have been to this place several times and have always enjoyed the food. The clam chowder soup was very good and all of the desserts were good as well. The restaurant has many antiques in it that were salvaged from other buildings before their demolition that add to the experience.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSloppy & the Joes great atmosphereHad a great couple of beers and food on a beautiful evening at Robin's Nest, with "Sloppy and the Joes" playing across the canal. Great time, great music, good food - couldn't have asked for more for a Friday night out with my wife. Have eaten here before indoors, but recommend (weather permitting) the outdoor scene, especially with when a band like "Sloppy..." is playing!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWill return soon.My girlfriend and I chose to visit the Robins Nest after a recommendation of a friend. We were not diappointed. We sat outside on the patio next to the canal that runs through Mt. Holly. There was a live band this particular evenings and they were good. The food could not have been better. I had a chicken dish with andouille sausage and my girlfriend had a strip steak cooked to perfection. Wait staff were friendly and gave you a family feel. Patio was fully booked and there was still room for some to dance. To summarize this, go and visit the Robins Nest and if you have the ability, sit on the patio, you will not be disappointed.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMbreakfast with MomMy sister and I brought Mom to Robin's Nest for breakfast on Sunday - not our first time at the restaurant (far from it), but our first time for breakfast. Breakfast did not disappoint. It was a very pleasant meal and a million light years more enjoyable than Sunday breakfast at a diner! We'll definitely return and we recommend it highly.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat lunch with the officeMy office and I enjoyed an excellent lunch. Plenty of space but cozy. Felt very comfortable and as special guest. Guest will have plenty of options for appetizers, main course and dessert. All are excellent.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a traditional lunch meetingHad a traditional lunch meeting with a friend and everything was great, as usual. The place was humming with lots of people but we were seated immediately (it was good to have made a reservation) and well-attended to. I ordered the Bleu Lime salad, which I'd had some time ago, and was pleased to remember how delicious it was. My friend enjoyed her chicken Caesar. We couldn't resist ordering from the dessert tray - always a difficult choice from beautiful pastries. No one rushed us as we sat and chatted. A very pleasant experience.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExcite the palletThe food was very good. Cooked to perfection and paired with the right wine. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the ingredients in the dishes. I certainly would recommend this restaurant to friends and family. The dessert menu is to die for.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI love the Robin's Nest, especiallyI love the Robin's Nest, especially for Sunday Brunch.

If your looking for a romantic dinner you've got to go to robins nest. This is by far the best restaurant for ambiance and quality of food. Love it!!!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMHave been going to The Robin'sHave been going to The Robin's Nest for years. I particularly love that the restaurant has a real personality -- even the powder rooms merit a visit -- and the food is always good, fresh and well-prepared. It is becoming more and more difficult, with all the cookie cutter chains, to find a place that is unique and interesting and this restaurant fills the bill.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was spectacular,Everything was spectacular, from the excellent service to the outstanding meals. Cocktails were sooo good and very unique, like nothing you get from anywhere else. This place is the best around! A must!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMJust passing through Mt. HollyJust passing through Mt. Holly and stumbled upon this little gem. Great food and service. We will make a point of stopping here again the next time we are passing through.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMQuality of foor mixed.I had the pork chop and it was excellent. Another person at the able had a different pork dish and it was disappointing. Sevice was excellent. They need to work on their other dishes. Desert was yummy. Do not order espresso. A doible espresso was the size of an x-small espresso. I'll try again hoping the meat dishes improve.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMNine of us celebrated St Patrick'sNine of us celebrated St Patrick's weekend enjoying Irish-themed drinks and meals, as well other creative dishes. Listening to Rich Carty on hammered dulcimer, highlighted
by an Irish stepdancer, enhanced the festivities. Our group of hammered dulcimer players and other musicians make this an annual tradition now, with our family and friends. Sumptuous desserts topped off the very special evening.
We all enjoy lunch and brunch at the Robin's Nest at every opportunity as well. It's a local gem, and the staff always makes us feel welcome and appreciated!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMChild friendly fine diningWe booked the reservation at Robin's Nest to have a special birthday dinner for my husband with his older cousins who drove in from Virginia for the day. I knew they would love the restaurant, but I wasn't sure how my seven year old son would do. He found something on the main menu that he loved and the server and the atmosphere were so warm and friendly that he ate and visited during the whole dinner without even asking to play games on his iPod. Of course he loved the birthday cake with candles at the end of the meal too.
Thank you Robin's Nest for making our celebration warm and wonderful.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is fantastic.This place is fantastic.
