Merryman’s Pub is located in the heart of downtown Pitman, NJ. This spot was once home to the Pitman National Bank, more than 100 years ago! Merryman’s owners, Bill Merryman and Vito Mannino, are thrilled to bring this beautiful building back to life for the community. Vito is also the owner of Mannino’s Cucina Italiana and Pizzeria Mannino’s, two well established (and loved) restaurants just steps away from the pub.

We chose to sit outside. The tables were set up on the sidewalk close to the street and foot traffic walking down the street. There was only one server for the outside and she was overwhelmed. We waited a while to order and then we were asked to order everything at once. The kitchen sent food out when it was ready so 3 of us were eating and one hadn’t received their food. The food was average tasting ... none of our entrees were above average. We will give it another try and sit inside.

My husband and I just moved to the neighborhood and have been trying new restaurants every week. Merrymans Pub was a great experience and we will definitely be back! I ordered the Brussel sprouts for appetizer, and my husband got the cheese curds. Both delicious! I wanted the smoked whitefish salad for my meal but our waiter told us they no longer have that item, so I spur of the moment chose the pickle pizza! I enjoyed it, however it was not something my husband could share with me. It is topped with a lot of dill on top of the dill pickles, so only order if you really like pickles!

My husband ordered the NJ burger and loved it. Their fries are soooo good, perfect crunch! I also got a Moscow mule which was good and strong! We will for sure be returning.

go there and was crammed between two other tables, no social distance. Next ordered a beer, was good. Ordered another beer with apps. The apps came no beer had to ask again. The server forgot. She placed the order, I could see it sitting there however she was more concerned with counting her money. Food comes ordered the pulled pork bbq and it was tough as shoe leather with no bbq sauce. Was going to give it another try but on second thought there are too many other places

The clam chowder was freshly made, I could tell by the snap in the pieces of corn; however it did have a lot of carrots (I’m not a carrot fan). For my entree I had the fried seafood combo it was also fresh and delicious. I will definitely be going back.

Everyone was super friendly. Our reservations were for 4pm and the say us right the way even though the place was already busy! Food was great: cheesesteak egg rolls were great, husband loved the parmesan wings and ribs. I had a steak quesadilla, was amazing! Server was friendly and the entire staff is attentive making sure you need a refill or running your food when ready. Oh, the restrooms were absolutely immaculate! LOVE IT ALL!!

Merrymans is a nice gem located in central Pitman. Food is very good. Unfortunately I took away a star for the drinks. Both our drinks were awful. I think they had an overabundance of lemons because our drinks were so sour. I had a long Island iced tea which was all lemons. I added some of my husband's cola and it helped. I was surprised bc when we ate here in the fall we all had the most delicious drinks. I actually couldn't wait to come back for the drinks alone. They need to address this asap.

Very cool ambiance and look to this cozy place! Large ceilings and windows give it a gothic feel. The food was very high quality for “bar food”. The soups I tried were amazingly flavorful and, HOT, which is, unfortunately, a lost art with most of your run-of-the-mill chain restaurants which Merryman’s Pub certainly is not.

Whether you’re taking someone on a first date, or your family for a nice meal, Merryman’s Pub will leave you full and wanting to return very soon!

Well, we made a reservation on a busy Saturday night and we're taken almost immediately our table was ready available when we got there, however that's where the trouble started the restaurant was grossly understaffed and the kitchen was slow and inconsistent all of our appetizers and dinners came out at different times and we probably would have had two more rounds of drinks if our service was adequate. Although Pittman is gentrified and is a fantastic place to hang out we will not be returning to this restaurant

I had ordered chicken nachos, pepperoni flatbread, wings. I go out to eat 3 time a week at least. Wings are average pizza shop size, pepperoni flatbread was ok, and the nachos did not have a lot of chicken on them and was a small portion.

Took forever to get the last entree out, close to 10 minutes after the other food was served. Very tightly packed atmosphere and seating was not following COVID rules. Probably won’t return. We had to sit at the Bar tables with tables set up 4’ behind us.

Staff was awesome! From the hostess to our server. I thought the food was a bit over priced. We had chicken nachos and a flat bread. The nachos were terrible. There was a huge glob of "yellow" on half the nachos and barely anything on the other side. Definitely disappointed with that. The Flatbread was very good but not $21 good.

Not sure if we'll be back. The atmosphere was awesome, service was great...food? Not so much

Unfortunately for our first time it was a really bad experience. We had to send our burgers back (3 times!) First, not asked how we wanted our burgers (temp) but then received overly cooked burgers. Second time the cheese was waxy and not melted and just room temp. Third time was raw! Fries cold. Waiter was nice but no manager came by which was unusual. My friends just ate some fries while I ate my meal which was just ok. We wouldn't come back. Too bad - it's a great atmosphere and location!
