A word from Tewksbury Inn
Oldwick is in the heart of the Hunterdon County horse country, and the Tewksbury Inn is at the center of this 18th-century historic district. The Inn is a former stagecoach stop where the 21st-century traveler can enjoy the traditional friendly tavern atmosphere with fine food that reflects wide ranging influences. In 2008 the Tewksbury Inn began opening on Mondays for the first time and those who join us have been in for a real treat: Our entire wine list at half price. Our exquisite food deserves pairing with an equally great wine and at this value, we think you will agree.

    We began the evening with lobster appetizer. It consisted of meat from the lobster body and claw sitting in a light creamy sauce. I had the roasted Halibut, it was very good. My friend had the beef short ribs, tender and tasty. We had peach Melba for dessert, delicious! We were there on a very busy week night and our waitress took very good care of us. The restaurant is noisy and lively. Fun!

    Fine olde traditional place with buzz and space between tables. A great place to catch up with friends. You can converse without shouting, nor is it a library. Service with a smile, unhurried but attentive. Relax, enjoy the quaint bar or go straight to table, inside or out, dining room or bar area. Had been a long time. Good to see the place is even better than I remembered.

  • Birthday luncheon

    Dined on 8/26/2014
    Four great friends met for lunch, the chef salad was so disappointing and not on par with the food at this inn. Greens were not fresh it had one piece of turkey and one of roast beef, we had to ask the server to bring more as it was so skimpy for the price it was charging. No bread to accompany the salads ordered. The rest of the lunch was ok, bees were a nuisance but that is the trade off when dining outdoors. Had dinner two weeks prior and food was great, will not return for lunch and don't recommend it.

    We received a gift card to eat at Tewksbury Inn as a wedding gift. We invited our good friends to join us for our first time experience. The hostesses were pleasant and accommodating. The server was a professional and attentive but not intrusive. The wine was superb and we enjoyed having quite a list to choose from. We enjoyed signature cocktails with our starters and a wonderful wine with our dinner. The food was superb! We savored every dish ordered from the carrot ginger soup to the salad to the lobster strudel. The swordfish melted in our mouth and was perfect with the risotto dish and perfectly cooked vegetables. We ended our evening with fresh baked peach turnover and 20yr port. Perfect.

    I took a business lunch group to the Inn. Beautiful day lovely table, incredible food (though my portion of fish was tiny), but we waited and waited and waited. We had a 2 hour lunch which needed to be under an hour. Won't come back for lunch with business associates. We were all antsy.

    This is our favorite restaurant in the area. Food is always great, have been a # of Xs and never disappointed. Wait staff well trained and versed but not at all intrusive. Fresh menu that changes with the season. Outside dining area is lovely. Stage coach stop in former days set in "downtown" area of Tewksbury - which includes perhaps 8 buildings of the same era. Very picturesque in itself. A definite find we keep sharing with friends

    I had high expectation after what I had read/heard...we arrived and waited several minutes before someone arrived to seat us. Brought to a table in the room with the bar. Fortunately, it was lunchtime and not very active. Our server was pleasant but most of the time MIA. Our food was grossly under seasoned. The Caesar salad had toe very large pieces of Parmesan cheese and looked unappealing. I hate when a server does not write down our order- especially since I have food allergies and order very specifically. To his credit everything was ok although my chicken was a little underdone and I ordered it well done. We were never offered coffee or dessert and took over 15 minutes after our plates cleared to ask for check. Not running back.

    My Mother In Law loves this restaurant. We went for lunch on a Sunday. The food is excellent. Service is very good. We love the classic feel of the old home. There was an issue with flies buzzing around. The front door swings open and closed and they must have been coming in through the front door. So we were swatting at them all through the meal. We will definitely go back.

    We've been to the Tewksbury Inn several times and it does not disappoint. The food is delicious - I had the lobster appetizer and the Mahi Mahi main course and my fiance had the calamari and the filet mignon main course and we were very pleased! Another highlight from the night is that they carried our FAVORITE summer beer, it's called "come hell or high watermelon," which was awesome. We've never seen this beer at any restaurant and have only been able to buy it at whole foods. The atmosphere is incredibly romantic, quaint, and special, and we can't wait to go back!

    I returned to the Tewksbury Inn for a birthday celebration after not having been there in over a year. Some old favorites were still on the menu as well as some new selections. Food was excellent, service was very good, and it was an overall enjoyable experience. Even parking was not bad. In the past I sometimes had to park in a nearby lot.

    Great restaurant with the perfect setting and fantastic food. Their chefs salad is one of the best, served with a slice of toasted garlic bread; nice touch. Their main courses are put together nicely, but I would suggest a "king" and "queen" size for some of the meals, namely the hangar steak which is a way too little portion for a big man's appetite.

We were not disappointed. Stacey our serve, was friendly and professional, and our dinners were delightful. The weather that night was gorgeous so it was a perfect evening.

    The area and Inn takes you back in time. The tavern area was vibrant for a Wednesday evening. We ate in the dining area which is much quieter. Maybe because it wasn't a busy night. My wife enjoyed her starter salad and my bowl of mussels were tender and tasty. The main course of Cod was fresh and a good choice for fish lovers. I decided on the hanger steak and was delightfully surprised. The presentation gets an A and the food an A+. The steak was perfectly prepared, mash potatoes whipped nicely and asparagus grilled along with a delicious sauce. If you are looking for a little out of the way restaurant in the Jersey countryside which still has an 18th century feel to it, stop by the Tewksbury Inn.

    My wife & I dined at Tewksbury Inn on Sat. May 10. Having read many glowing reviews, I was looking forward to something special. We started with mixed greens & Boston Bibb salads, which were finely presented & very tasty. The waitress DID ask how our salads were. However, my spouse's filet mignon, which was ordered 'medium', was actually cooked 'well done'. She said it was tasty, but she was disappointed there was *no hint* of pink color. I was very disappointed in my stuffed veal top round. About 25% of it was *raw*. The parts that were cooked were actually done very nicely. The stuffed items- goat cheese, asparagus, roasted red peppers -were delicious. But about 25% of the veal, raw? The waitress NEVER asked how our entrees were. :(
