Library one of my favorite places to celebrate friends b days special occasions ! That being said always very happy with everything ! The service we received was not good our waitress was the worst most of the night she ignored us my walking away while as we were asking for something ! Asked for butter several times finally went to another waitress she brought us butter and another set of drinks . She wasn’t busy she talked to her other table just had no interest in dealing with our table ! Older women blonde hair had no time for our table ! And we are fun loving nice ladies 2 out of 3 of us worked in the bar tending field ! We still gave her a nice tip because we were in the business but we felt let down from our experience!

Wonderful food - one of the best salad bars in South Jersey and the best steaks in the Delaware Valley! We have been eating here since 1995 or so and it is consistently outstanding!

First time at this location was a bit disappointing. Food was okay, service was not good. Other locations have been much better all around. Atmosphere was a bit outdated but still acceptable. Sirloin steaks were decent but I would recommend avoiding the twice baked potato unless you love heavy amounts of garlic. This location was easy to get into on a Saturday night, perhaps because of its size, however I would recommend the Voorhees location overall.

We were sat by the bar which was pretty noisy and the rest or the restaurant was pretty much open so it would have been nice to have been seated somewhere away from bar. The steak was delicious but asparagus was not and i was charged $4.95 for it. I also wish there was ranch dressing on the salad bar. I ordered my side as a baked potatoe and gave it to my husband but was charged additionally for it. Overall the value is not great and I will probably go elsewhere. The staff were all very friendly though.

Sandy served our party of 10 and did an excellent job, she was very attentive and didn’t miss a beat. The food was great as usual. My family loves coming here! It’s perfect for a special occasion when you want to keep things low key.

I had the worst service there. The waiter didnt come to our table for 25 minutes. They forgot our appetizer. My steak tasted like it was cooked with beef bouillon instead of seasoning and the natural flavors coming out. Very disappointed in the place. I definitely won't be going back there

The Library continues to provide an overall great meal. Salad bar is outstanding. Entrees delicious steaks and good crab cakes; they may have been better if they came broiled as we asked, but these came sautéed. Fantastic clam casino appetizer.

Everything about our evening was great except our table. We were placed in the bar area. People standing around us waiting for tables made it uncomfortable. The noise from the bar area made it difficult to talk with each other and this was dinner with old friends who hadn’t seen each other in along time and really wanted to catch up. Had I known the table in the bar was actually used for a nice dining experience I would have made sure to put that in my do not list.

Had a decent meal with my girlfriend and another couple on Saturday 3-2-19. The food was good (as usual) but the service was painfully slow. I'm not sure why since it didn't seem overly busy nor did they seem to be short-staffed.

Our server was nice enough and did separate checks for us but often to seemed nowhere to be found near the end of the meal. Took forever for her to bring us our checks and longer still to come back to collect payment (we ended up having to ask another server to track her down for us).
