Our service was amazing - she knew we had to get out in less than 35 minutes and was really great about making it happen. Food was really good as well. Would surely recommend to friends.

We love to eat at the Restaurant. My only suggestion for improvement was we purposely ordered an appetizer to eat before our meal. Unfortunately, all the food was brought out at once, and we had to eat the entree first so it wouldn't get cold.

The buffet was very impressive but also very expensive. We ordered off the a la carte menu and were pleasantly surprised. The service staff was especially friendly and accommodating. Id go here again before a Devils game.

Really average experience. Service was slow but not intolerable, although table next to us got up and left because of the delay in receiving their food. Entrees off the a la carte menu were slightly better than at the concessions in the stadium. The a la carte menu pricing was reasonable considering the stadium environment; the buffet looked great but seemed overpriced, particularly with no kids pricing. Watched an unsupervised child at the buffet drop a hot dog on the floor and pick it up and put it back on the rollers to be served...no staff monitoring the buffet to prevent this (I got up and alerted someone). I might return purely out of convenience, but that's it.

This is the best food in the building, but you do pay for it. At a Devils game, your options are the buffet at $62, or ala cart. The food is great, but not a lot of choices on the ala cart menu. Of the 4 of us, 3 ordered off menu, and 1 had buffet. With 2 beers for each, the bill was $210, before the tip. Very pricy for a pre game meal.

It was one of the busiest Saturday nights since they were sold out for Patty's retirement. We were seated on time. Our waiter, Jackie was attentive and cheerful. They got our appetizer wrong, so she apologized and took it off the bill. All in all worth going before the game.

The menu was limited and much more expensive than the arena. Same food though. The Buffet was much better selection and quality but not worth the $65 PER PERSON (that's right $65) price. Definitely over priced by any stretch. Many local restaurants much better and less expensive. Would NOT recommend or go again.

Went here before a Devils game and it was PACKED. Our drinks were served in a timely manner and the food came in a reasonable amount of time considering the sheer volume of people. Fabulous Jackie was our server and she was speed walking the entire time we were there! We were very happy with our dining experience.

This restaurant was chosen as a pre-game dinner for our son's Christmas present to see the New Jersey Devils play. We traveled from Virginia that day and chose the site for ease and location. The service was terrible. The buffet, although plentiful and a good variety for both adult and child, the cost was just prohibitive for an 11 year old - $62! The Ala cart menu had one kid friendly item available - a cheese pizza. We were very disappointed and would definitely not choose this venue again.

Although the reservation went through OK, we were seated at a table where we were instantly forgotten. Waitress took forever to meet us, and must have forgotten our presence. Food was served by another person, and the $$ pizza was already cold. On top of it all we had upset stomachs afterwards. Except for the ambiance of the hockey game, the restaurant basically sucked.

Our family was going to a devils game so we decided to go for dinner before the game. Have eaten there in the past and was okay. So wanted to have more family try out the restaurant and we want to support the devils and the arena.
Overall the experience was positive. The a la Carte menu was ok pub type food. Limited menu. Fine. Kids and adults found choices.
One guest had buffet which seem to have better quality food and more choices. But 70 for adults and 35 for kids is steep. Would save for a special ocassion.
Service staff was friendly prompt and nice !
The strength of the restaurant is great staff and view of the rink from above.

They charge $62.00 for the buffet. I expected more than chicken fingers, fried wontons and sliders. They did have shrimp cocktail but, for $62.00????? Not worth it at all. Very convenient before a game but just disappointing.
