    This old inn on the Delaware River in Stockton N.J. is a delightful place to dine with a couple or group. There were 9 of us for our recent visit and the cocktails were excellent, I had a charming summer beer, and the food was liked throughout the group. I started with a quite good version of clams casino and then had the pan seared diver scallops over a herb risotto cake with green and white asparagus. This was an excellent dish. Others had sea bass, salmon, the pasta special as well as there tavern fare chicken pot pie. All were well receive, save the pot pie which while good did not quite match a more famous version in south Jersey. Most of us enjoyed one of the homemade ice creams and sorbets that the new pastry chef concocted.

    When my friend & I decided to celebrate another friend's 80th birthday, we wanted to do something special. So we (all seniors) decided to go on an adventure. I randomly picked the Inn and made reservations for the three of us. Not knowing what to expect and really not knowing where the Inn was located the day was quite exciting. Getting lost was all part of our adventure and the scenery we came across was very pretty. When we arrived, we were quite pleased and very surprised in regards to all the history the Inn beholds. The women that greeted us were very pleasant, our server was very good, and our lunch was OUTSTANDING. The presentation was beautiful and the food was delicious. Thank you,

    We have been to The Stockton Inn multiple times. Usually the food is hit or miss but this time it was absolutely delicious. The service at the bar and for dinner was slow. However the food made that more tolerable but hopefully the service will be better next time.

    We shared a delicious starter, and then both had fish- perfectly cooked. Interesting flavors. Not overwhelming to the food. The dessert which included things like Guinness ice cream- seriously good!! There were multiple things on the menus I'd like to have tried and sounded appetizing. Would go back. Lots of outdoor eating possibilities- on the front historic porch or lots of room at the back behind the inn. Inside also nice. Overall a good experience thanks!

    I heard there were new owners, and that it got mixed reviews. But I thought I'd decide for myself. The new owners need to be on site, managing this young, scattered, un-attentive staff who could care less if your experience is pleasant or if you ever come back. I won't.

    After waiting 90 minutes for our entrees (not to mention a number of other problems), I was told it was due to my misbehaved children. Not only is that an absurd excuse (and one of many I was given) it is a false statement. Putting all bias aside, my children were quiet, well mannered, and polite. Not one person in that dining room would have disagreed. Give me poor service, attitude, excuses, whatever it is you need to convince yourself you have a well run establishment, but don't use my children (or any children for that matter) as an excuse for poor service. A formal complaint is being compiled and on its way.

    The food here ranges from pretty good to very good but I wouldn't say it's exceptional. The reason I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday was that, in addition to the food being good, the atmosphere is really charming (old colonial inn; gorgeous outdoor patio in season) and the service is excellent: helpful, knowledgeable, competent. My appetizer of clams casino was fresh and delicious; my boyfriend's onion soup was good but not the best ever. My trout with horseradish cream sauce and spaetzle was an unusual combo but I scarfed it up; I tasted my boyfriend's sirloin steak and it was the best I've had in years, actually. The few dessert choices this evening were traditional but our cheesecake and chocolate mousse were delicious.

    This was my second visit to the Stockton Inn. I love the quaint old atmosphere and it was a beautiful day to enjoy both inside and outside. However...I felt the food was lacking. Overcooked food and had to ask waitress several times for sugar for ice tea, extra syrup for food we ordered as amount served was miniscule. Also, asked for an extra napkin and waitress completely forgot. Overall, I would go back again for the atmosphere but would probably just go for the bar and light fare.

    I brought my mother & grandmother here for Mother's Day brunch. We had a morning reservation of 11:15. They were out of some of the items on the menu. They didn't have any waffles for brunch which was a big disappointment to my grandmother. Our food order came out wrong. It also would have been much nicer if the outdoor dining was available, it was such a beautiful day. I was expecting more from this restaurant.

    Went for Mother's Day brunch. Advanced reservations. Place was empty entire time we were there 9:30-11, but wouldn't give us window seat. Ok. They didn't have milk!?? Huh? Someone had to go out and get some. No sausage. No waffle maker? They strung us for 30 minutes saying waffles coming then admitted they couldn't make them. Offered pancakes instead, but served it as crepes. These are all pretty basic things for brunch. Was just weird day. We won't repeat there again. They need to step it up, especially on Mother's Day!

    I love the atmosphere and I have dined there several times. However, this time the chef drowned all four of our filets in so much salt we had to keep drinking water. The crab lobster soup same problem. The waiter was slightly attentive and the manager who walked around never engaged us. A $300 poor experience in a restaurant we had always enjoyed before.

    Sunday night at the Stockton Inn is a classic for us. Usually great, not this time. They had obviously a busy weekend and several items on the menu were not available. I understand, as a former owner of a 4star restaurant, that the kitchen may run out of one or two items after a busy night, but I think that certain items should always be available. They were out of steak. A previous Sunday they ran out of Hamburger meat. Come on, I understand not having enough oysters or escargots, but steak? Hamburger? There are plenty of markets in the area that can provide you with that. Furthermore the kitchen got slammed and we waited and waited and waited. Jedediah, our wonderful waiter, kept apologizing, but it was out of his hands. Not happy.

    We have dinner here every once in a while, this place has great outdoor dinning in good weather. Well stocked bar and food is good and sometimes exceptional. We took my father-in-law here for the first time and he was impressed. On weekends in the summer you really should make reservations. We do recommend the Stockton Inn to everyone.

    When we arrived, we were seated immediately by a courteous young woman, and waited upon by a server right away. We wished to spend the evening catching up with old friends, and this is exactly what happened. The lack of interruptions after our orders were taken, and the quiet delivery of each course was perfect. We spent 2 1/2 hours enjoying great food and being able to hear and appreciate fun and private conversation with our friends without the clamor that is found in many restaurants. My only negative comment: the slippery sliding of chairs on the floor. Both women spent the entire meal having to keep moving and readjusting their chairs because it was almost as though we were on an incline and they kept sliding into the table.

    Stockton, NJ is to this day a sleepy rural village along the Delaware River. This same ambiance extends to the Stockton Inn. If you happen to hint at or inquire about the history of the inn, your server will rush out and deliver you a 7 page, 300 year historic summary. The food is simple well-prepared and of course tasty. I recommend the pan seared diver sea scallops, prepared with broiled Brussel sprouts tossed with pieces of fried pancetta. The crab cake was good, but not that notable, go to Maryland if that is what you are seeking.
