Steakhouse
Now celebrating its 40th year, Nero's Grille continues to be one of north-Jersey's most popular dining scenes. We combine the highest quality, freshest ingredients with a comfortable, familiar atmosphere and service that makes you feel like one of the family. Nero's has become the area's place to see and be seen. Three separate dining rooms, and outdoor patio dining as climate permits, provide a warm, unpretentious intimacy in which to enjoy our high-quality, moderately-priced American and Italian fare, while the large bar area buzzes with the energy of friends gathering over a favorite martini or a glass of wine from Nero's award-winning list. Private rooms are also available, and our banquet staff is noted for making special events 'extra special.' After four decades, the entire Nero's family continues to take enormous pride in offering our guests, new and old, a gracious welcome, a terrific meal, and our sincere appreciation.

    Firstly, we waited nearly 1/2 hour for our table and that was with a reservation. The waitress was hassled She had lots of other tables to attend to. I ordered BBQ salmon. It was over roasted corn that was so salty I could not eat it! The fish was just ok. The food was expensive and mediocre. I won’t go back!

    A frequent lunch stop. Always good. Today we had an outside table (as requested) with no umbrella and the sun was strong. There were no tables left in the shade. Only downside.

    As a longtime patron of Nero's, I enjoyed another delicious business dinner last evening. The service was friendly, attentive and courteous. I enjoyed the excellent Caesar salad and delicious chicken nero. The waitress and kitchen were most accommodating to my dinner partner's request for his entree to be made a certain way. Looking forward to returning soon.
