Tavern Bar open late night.
My wife and I celebrated our 1st date anniversary for our 12th time. We have been doing this for five years at The Ho Ho Kus Inn. It is one of the most charismatic, romantic and cozy places in NJ. You will always be served a outstanding and delicious meal.
We started off wife a cocktail - my wife was served a perfect Negroni and I had Woodford Reserve in the rocks. We then shared 18 of the freshest, mouth watering oysters. Just fabulous!!! My wife had the grilled cheese & tomato soup. She loved it! I had the Norwegian Salmon with preserved lemon risotto and asparagas, the best risotto I ever had! The crispiest salmon skin I ever had! I totally enjoyed every morsel! We then each had a cup of hot & delicious coffee and shared an apple crisp with homemade vanilla ice cream.
We eat at the Ho Ho Kus Inn approximately 6-8 tied a year. I said to my wife we always have a great meal, service and atmosphere here why don’t we come mire often, she agreed so Ho Ho Kus Inn expect to see us more often.
sat in the pub room for a casual dinner with a friend. Service, food and ambiance was perfect.
It was very nice sat in the lounge for a late afternoon lunch with our son and daughter-in-law. Food was great server was attentive. Haven’t eaten in this restaurant In a few years, was good then and it did not disappoint. We will be back
Dinner was great. We had a wonderful time. It was a busy night but we were well taken care of. Definitely headed back to HHK Inn!
Always love the Cobb Salad - had it with a nice piece of salmon this time. Everyone enjoyed their meal and waiter was terrific.
Horrible service, substandard food
Service was shaky took forever to get our dinner order. The waiter was good, the issue was with the kitchen.
Nice atmosphere but very poor service. Food wasn't bad but servers didn't know who got what and we had to send our gin and tonic's back because the tonic was flat and had no taste. The restaurant emptied out relatively early (9:30) and the staff started setting up tables in the room we were eating in for a party the next day. It was very loud and very rude to do while we were still there. The busboy also cleared the table without asking us if we were done and took my cappuccino away before it was finished. Not a great experience. Wouldn't go back anytime soon!
Great meal and great service
We had a wonderful Anniversary dinner. The service was great. Surprised with a custom specials menu with "Happy Anniversary', two glasses of champagne and wonderful attentive service. Highly recommend Hohokus Inn for special occasions. Exceeded my expectations.
Great food and service
dinner was excellent - always good service - pleasant atmosphere
Delicious meal and excellent service.
Absolutely loved my dinner date with my husband. We sat in the library and had Z as our server. She is the best! Looking forward to visiting again and having some drinks outside perhaps! Great atmosphere, delicious food, and phenomenal service. Thanks so much!
Finally the rain stopped and it was time to get outside. Have been here a few times before, live the outside patio area for dinner. Food was delicious as always.
Lovely restaurant. Food was beautifully presented and tasty. Many of the dishes had a little twist on what was expected (octopus appetizer). We were a group of 6 and all of us appreciate good food and the restaurant exceeded my expectations. We ate outside which was pleasant but noisy. One of the men is an expert on wine and said it was a very good selection. There seemed to be only one waiter for the entire restaurant inside and outside which meant it took a while to place the order and get our food.
We ate outside and selected from both the pub and restaurant menus. The food was delicious and the service excellent!
Love the outside seating on a beautiful summer evening!
We came on a Monday night. On Mondays you can bring your own wine and there is no corkage fee. Outdoors was busy, but inside we were the sole table of diners in the big dining room. We had a private sever and bus person. We felt as if we had a private chef. Dinner was cooked to perfection from starters to dessert: crab cake, salad, avocado frites with crabmeat, grilled red snapper, cod, lobster pappardelle, and chocolate lava cake. Was a great night for a leisurely catch-up with dear friends. Quiet. Unrushed. Monday is a great night st the Inn.
Food was very good but service was very slow. Waited almost an hour for food to be served. Server was not attentive.
Good food, service and atmosphere. Outdoor seating, two bar areas, and a formal dining room to match whatever your mood. All this in a classic historic home loaded with colonial charm.
We had a great time - sat in the tavern and it was terrific!
We were five and started with sparkling wine. From Caesar salad to oysters, our appetizers were treats to eye and palate. Beautifully prepared divers scallops and cod were our entrees. Ordered two plates of cookies. We found them very soft, too soft in fact but delicious too.
Great place missed the mark this time. Some food bland and served incomplete. Service slow — we guessed it all relates to a kitchen that was overwhelmed in some way. Not the norm at HHK Inn but we were disappointed this time.
Great place! They really made my anniversary dinner special. The service was amazing, and the food was really good. I would certInly go back.
Service was slow. Food orders came out wrong and one had to be sent back, which resulted in new order not arriving until 30 minutes later when everyone had already finished dinner or their meals were cold. Noise level way too high. It wasn’t even crowded.
First off I ordered an Old Fashion that tastes like way to much bitters. My wife’s crab cake app was cold. Then the short ribs that she ordered was dry and the mashed potatoes were cold. My app was good, the salmon was cooked as advertised but the couscous was bland way overpriced for the value. I will never go back. I will say that the manager apologized and comped my wife’s entree. I work to hard to have an evening ruined.
Food was exceptional as was our waitress Lupita. Really nice job for a birthday dinner, including the personalized menu card for the birthday guest. Well done HHK Inn!
Had been for lunch before. The decor and ambiance are great. The menu has wonderful options. However our scallops were salty, the beans they were served over were under cooked. No one came out when our salad was served and asked if we wanted pepper. The octopus was chewy. The best part of the meal was the burrito peach salad. That was incredible. The price compared to other places we go is. A little high for what you get and the service. Even the bread didn’t seem fresh.
As always an enjoyable experience. Since it has warmed up we asked to sit out on the patio. You can't reserve ahead if time, only upon arrival. We had just over an hour wait, which is what we had expected. Enough time for a couple of drinks and conversation to catch up with friends. Highly suggest the valet at peak times so you don't have to worry about finding a spot. Friday night we stick to the bar menu. The two guys had hot sandwiches and I had a burger. All came with a side of fries. We started by splitting the margarita flatbread, thin crust with just enough sauce and lightly cheesed. Never have room for dessert so you are on your own there.
We waited so long for our meal. 2 steaks came out charred and nedium rare. They gave us dessert. But in the end they should not have charged us for the steaks. Dinner was $300 for 6 people and my daughter shared with my mom. This was our first time at this restaurant and will not go back. What a terrible meal. What a terrible birthday meal.
I love when it's warm enough to sit on the outdoor patio at HHK Inn... ordering from the Tavern menu is very reasonable, and the food is consistently good. Service was attentive wihout being invasive. Nice evening outdoors for a salad and burger :)
Great food and service. Nice ambiance. Menu had a nice variety and gluten free options
Great meal at very charming restaurant. Service was fantastic. Never felt rushed or ignored.
We went in for an early dinner. Went for the small plates and burgers. Burger perfectly cooked medium rare. The buttermilk onion rings were great. Grilled octopus was tender and grilled crisp.
Our server, Ed, was excellent. Helpful and attentive without ever being intrusive.
Really liked house ale. Very good selection of wines by the glass.
Birthday dinner celebration. Food was excellent, as usual. I always enjoy my meal at the Hohokus Inn. The staff was very attentive. Great place for a celebration.
We sat outside on the sweet little patio on a beautiful day. The food was delicious and service was very good. Salmon burger and devils on horseback are a must have and cocktails were great!
Went for lunch with a friend. We asked to be seated at a table outside in the shade. We were informed that the tables with umbrellas were reserved for a party of 4. We agreed to be seated at a table for 2 without umbrella. We had to keep
Moving around our table because the sun was too strong for us.
They did not have any party of 4 come to dine and we noticed that 2 tables for 4 only had 2 people seated at them. The table next to us was empty the whole time we had lunch. Plus there was another empty table for 4.
We did not enjoy our meals because it was too much sun on us and because we couldn’t understand why they didn’t offer to move us, especially when the waiter/busboy was helping us move the table closer to the table next to us to get some shade.
I don’t think we will be having lunch there any time soon. Sometime s you have to try to please the customer that is there and not worry about the customer that might come.
