Situated in the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority's Off-Track Wagering Facility, McLoone's Woodbridge Grille serves comfort food and upscale cuisine. Its casual setting features candlelit tables and small televisions in the booth seating areas.

Fried calamari in a Thai-chili glaze, Reuben sliders or a cheesy quesadilla make for tantalizing appetizers. Patrons at McLoone's Woodbridge Grille can try a main course of St. Louis-style barbecue ribs, crab cakes with citrus tartar sauce or a chicken pot pie. This eatery also serves gluten-free and vegan options. McLoone's Woodbridge Grille features a banquet room for hosting private events. It has a full bar that offers numerous drinks, including specialty cocktails. This restaurant offers a happy hour and game-day food specials.

    Disgrace to the McLoone name. I've been to other McLoone's locations and OpenTable does NOT specify that this is McLoone's AT Favorites, which happens to be a gambling bar, using McLoone's to pull in a upperclass crowd. Service was terrible, dining room was understaffed, the foods underwhelming notes were nothing to talk about, the experience start to finish was one to remember!!! We will never return to this location.

    When I made this Valentine's day reservation I didn't know it was in an OTB parlor. I've frequented some of the McLoone's properties in Monmouth County, and saw on the app there were good times open, so I went with it. That day, when pulling up directions I read that this place was "in" an Off Track Horse Racing betting parlor. Fortunately it's nice and separate enough that it didn't feel gross. They do have little TV's at the booths with races on them, but they didn't both us. The Valentine's prix fixe menu was very good - service was a notch above a regular restaurant. Very friendly. The food was good too, which was nice, and an incredible value - with 2 drinks plus gratuity I only spent about $80

    If you like OTB this place is great. You can live stream horse races right at your booth in the main ding area. It's a fun atmosphere. The food and menu are great.

    This is not an Inn. Looks like it might have been at one time, but now it;s a gambling parlor. Food is diner quality.

    We went with a party of 5 people on a Saturday night. The restaurant wasn't very busy and was fairly quiet. When the food came, we couldn't believe the size of the portions. They were huge! 3 of the 5 of us brought food home and one of the people that brought food home never has leftovers. The food was excellent! Everyone liked their dishes. We liked that there was a variety so there was something for everyone.

    This place was nothing like the West Orange, NJ McLoone's .....It was part of an off-site better parlor!!!! Patrons were jumping up every few minutes to place bets. It was very seedy. My order could not even be cooked to request with NO seasoning....it came loaded with pepper & salt. I had to wait while everyone else ate... Our check was not even adjusted for this inconvenience. Also, the nachos platter was with liquid cheese....not even melted cheese. Avoid at all cost!!!

    Every table has a TV showing a current race. The food is average. If you order something with cheddar cheese, you get cheese whiz (on nachos or burger).

    I was pleasantly surprised to find the restaurant was also a betting place. Initially my impression was it was a sports bar. But after a few minutes, I realized that you can place a bet for racetrack and others. It was a first for me and my family! It was not bad though. There was an area where you can place your bets separately. Appetizers was ok. Stuffed Mushrooms were really good. My entree was nothing special. Dessert is always good. My server was exceptional, very pleasant and totally funny. I will recommend to people who like to gamble while enjoying their meal.
