We were sat in library room by the fireplace. They seemed short staffed. We waited awhile to place drink and food orders. Seemed like our are was deserted by the wait staff. They did give us champagne for our anniversary which was nice. The food was all excellent.
Very nice casual place to eat. Service was good although a little slow and never rushed us.
Outside area is great, lots of heaters and tented. I loved that I could make a reservation online through open table for the outdoor space!
Love the salmon burger. Unique and delicious!
-we were celebrating a birthday and the staff went above and beyond

We celebrated a birthday in the outside area, the spacing and openness was great! Felt very safe and had a great time!
Great food, tent, heating
Nice views and nice building
Very comfortable outdoor seating - tables spaced appropriately. Food was excellent.
Great food and atmosphere
Outdoor dining was very well done. Beautiful tent and spaced seating. We felt very comfortable during this crazy times. The food was outstanding. The Asian salmon burger was delicious as always and the Calamari New England Style has a nice twist and delicious balsamic drizzle. This place never fails to deliver great food and excellent cocktails. ( yummy dirty martini with blue cheese olives)
EXCELLENT SERVICE FOOD AND STAFF ARE RIGHT THERE SHOULD YOU NEED THEM. THEIR OUTSIDE DINNING IS DONE OVER AND ABOVE MOST PLACES I HAVE EATEN.
Always a nice time!
A great place. Excellent food & service. Really friendly & fun
We went during the brunch menu. What we ordered was good but I wish there were just a few more main entree options
Enjoyed a wonderful Easter brunch. Lived in nearby Paramus for years and finally went for holiday brunch. Was definitely a nice place we will visit again. Food and service was amazing. Service was a good balance of making sure we were ok but not overly intrusive. Wonderful atmosphere with the various small rooms for dining rooms.
Easter Brunch was a flop! Ordered the deviled eggs, they were still icy when served! I ordered Eggs Benedict on a biscuit. The biscuit was the size of a silver dollar. The eggs were well cooked and the “Taylor ham” was extremely thinly sliced, the size altogether about the same as 2 thumbnails put together. My daughter’s salad was ok.
We tried dessert- chocolate lava cake. Unfortunately tasted like boxed cake... we also got 2 mimosas. There were ZERO bubbles. Really poor food in a once great place. It was poor immediately prior to quarantine as well, but thought it was a fluke. I guess not!
We had a relaxing comfortable dinner in the bar area accompanied by a warm fireplace. Our waiter was skilled at his work and a polite young man. Appetizers were good. Warm pretzel with cheese and hot! Mustard dips. Buffalo wings. We had pasta dish and burgers. NY cheesecake was outstanding. A wonderful local restaurant in an historic inn.
Great menu and specials. Food is always delicious. Attentive and friendly service. All precautions for COVID are in places- tables spaced out in large heated tent, servers wearing masks and gloves- felt very safe there.
Prices are a little high but it’s a great local place and always a good experience.
Wonderful all around! The dishes were creative and delicious. The dates with goat cheese and bacon were to die for. Our server, Ed was attentive and very knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. We will definitely be back!
Food was very good. It we found it a bit pricey for what it was
Although it was chilly the heaters made it very comfortable for us. Your service people were very friendly and helpful. Our waitress was delightful. A very pleasant lunch overall.
Ho Ho Kus Inn... always a favorite! Great food, service, ambience!
Enjoyed a lovely birthday brunch with friends. Fabulous bloody Mary’s and Mimosas. My salmon patty with avocado and Cole slaw was purely delicious. Chocolate lava was sinful.
Perfect outdoor eating option during the pandemic. Food was delicious!
They forgot the dinner course and asked us if we were interested in desert. Somewhat of a long wait... but did offer free dessert.
The food was phenomenal as always, the only thing was i wish was that the tent was totally closed because it was so windy
Great outdoor setup! Went in a rainy day and it was warm and pleasant inside the tent. I’ll be back!
Consistently good food and service.
Service was very slow. Reservation at 5. Seated right away. Ordered at 5:15. Did not receive food till 6:40 pm.
Everything was wonderful. My favorite restaurant whenever I visit NJ
First indoor meal since the pandemic hit a year ago. It was phenomenal!!
Beautiful place, the food is awesome taste so delicious I went to my mom I she was so happy about everything. I will definitely come back soon! More than 5 stars
As always, the food and service were great. The servers are very attentive while not rushing, and everything we ordered was delicious. The precautions in place regarding COVID-19 make for very comfortable dining. The tents are large, well heated and tables very well spaced. They take everyone’s temperature, everyone is masked (until seated at the table, and menus are paperless through QR codes. I felt very comfortable dining outdoors there.
Our server was excellent. You need to add more breakfast options to your brunch menu like blueberry pancakes and omelettes.
One of the best places for outdoor dining Food and service has always been excellent.
