Stockton Inn - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
Just love it here. Had the filet, was cooked perfectly. My husband had lamb ragu cavatelli and it was perfect too! Were not rushed at all. Very romantic. We went there for our first date 30 years ago on that date so decided to go back to celebrate..... a special place for sure!
My wife and I brought our 2 year old son and he can be a real handful, we're working out the dining out thing. The staff was lovely and help accommodate his silly needs. On top of that the food and drinks were delicious. I was impressed with my dinner at the Stockton Inn.
Disappointing. We had a 5:30 reservation and it took us 1 1/2 hours. Our request to have a replacement for the black rice that accompanied our salmon was denied. We were not offered bread or rolls. Hot tea was served in a small cup and a request for a pot of water couldn't be accommodated. We think the poor service was due to staff shortage. There are plenty of quaint taverns in this area so it will be quite a long time before we return.
My husband and I came for our 50th anniversary. While our 2 meals were good, our 2 friends were disappointed. You were out of potato soup. I did not mind the tomato soup, however I did mind that it was brought to our table without any notice that there was no potato soup so I could have made another choice if I so desired.. Our friends Caesar salad was not good. It looked like remnants of romaine and did not have enough dressing. You did not have any Stroganoff and my friend had to settle for the lamb. Not good. Also, my other friend ordered chicken and it looked like half of a half of a very small chicken. For these reason, I cannot recommend your restaurant to anyone. We spent a great deal of money and my friends were less than satisfied. Also you were out of one of the deserts. I realize there was a shad festival going on, but you should have know and stocked for that event My friends did not want to complain because of the special occasion. :(
Food was not good at all (pork was found in the calamari appetizer when not listed as an ingredient; we do not eat pork, as my husband is Muslim). We disliked our entrees (his lamb Bolognese was terrible, my burger was overdone). Service was very slow, with hostess doubling as waitress. The place was near empty but we had to ask to be seated, with hostess running in and out of kitchen. Outdoor environment was very pretty, but food and service incredibly disappointing with very high price tag and very small portions. We would rather never go out for dinner again if it meant ever having to return here. Whole experience was disgusting. Would give them less than one star if possible.
The restaurant was somewhat disappointing. I wanted a dish advertised as a small plate, and was told that for that night it was made into large plate only. I asked if I could still have a smaller portion and was told that was not possible. I chose something else, but did not feel accommodated.
Came to the Stockton inn for dinner Sunday night. Had a great experience. Me and my fiancé went for the food tasting. It was a nine course meal. Each course paired with a different wine. The cooks did a wonderful job preparing each course fresh. The service was great. Each wine paired great. Highly recommend coming here.
Another nice Friday evening at Stockton Inn - Great cocktails prior, then a tasty dinner seated by the fire. As usual, it was not busy at all but it's consistently good here. Quiet and romantic setting, with nobody sitting right next to you like in some other places. Historical building and town. Nice wait staff
Disappointing night at the Stockton Inn after so many wonderful dinners over the last few months.
Foie gras and hamachi crudo weren't available despite being on the menu.
Grilled calamari in a tomato sauce paired with chorizo did not go well together, beef Stroganoff was dry and insipid, chicken pot pie too soupy and English pea risotto mushy.
Best of the evening the deconstructed chocolate mousse.
Was it an off night for the chef or was the chef off that night? Hopefully that is the case.
Service ok, although we missed the professionalism of our regular server Sam.
Thank God great drinks from Liz.
The atmosphere was beautiful and quiet , so it was perfect for conversation. There was a fire going which made it very inviting on a cold evening. The menu was overpriced and the portions were small. The server was very inexperienced and was not able to properly describe the tapas choices or the dessert.
It is a gorgeous , historical building and it was such a disappointment not to see the restaurant busier on a weekend night.
New items on the menu and many worth trying. Besides the always delicious potachos, the most tender octopus in a chocolate mole sauce with braised onions and avocado ( outstanding ) excellent lamb ragu' with cavatelli perfectly al dente, grilled romaine Caesar Salad............
To end with an unusual and light interpretation of the classic chocolate mousse.......
Great dinner, great service, great drinks.
This is one of our favorite local eateries. The staff are so friendly, and will do whatever they can to make the dining experience is A+. And it always is when we dine there. This is the kind of restaurant that you have to take your time with; savoring the fire, the beautiful murals, the ancient wood floors. It invites you to slow down, leave your phone in the car, and ease back to a simpler time, and slower pace.
My son passes the INN when he goes to service a business in the area. He always wanted to try it but never had the chance during the day, so since his birthday was near we decided to take his advice and go for dinner. The inn was very comfortable with the fireplace burning, and as beautiful as it was it was casual. Our waitress was very accommodating and as my husband has a gluten allergy she helped in his decisions. The olive oil poached halibut we had was excellent. It came with Couscous wrapped in swiss chard. The choice for my husband was the Boc Choy with the Halibut and my son had the Lamb Bolognese which he enjoyed very much. Desserts were a butterscotch delight in a small glass which was very good.
I am really happy that we made it out to the new incarnation of the Stockton Inn. We enjoyed ourselves so thoroughly that we plan to return again soon as it is absolutely worth the 30 minute drive. We learned they have rotated about half the dishes from the last menu so refer to their website, not the Open Table menu that is out of date. The staff was outstanding. Warm, attentive and not fake. A really delightful experience. And a real plus is that there are so many small plate options that you can get a lot of variety for not a lot of money. This is a huge selling point for me as I dont like committing to a main dish.
We started with cocktails. My cocktail was a rye whiskey, chartreuse, lemon combination that was expertly crafted with delicate flavors and the right amount of lemon so it didnt overpower the drink. My husbnd had bourbon amd ginger ale This bartender is skilled!
I think I will dream of the mushroom toast. Decadent and delicious. The burrata is made in house and had a more firm exterior and a creamy interior that was a superior departure from the more completely creamy burrata you find elsewhere. It was supplemented with lightly dressed greens and a green kale coulis (nice change from tomato you usually find accompanying burrata). The pork belly had a wonderful crust which gave it a balanced texture that we enjoyed. The braised short rib was so delicately textured and delicious. The only slight flaw was the potato cake that sits underneath the short ribs so it gets overly salty and a bit limp.
All portions were larger than I expected and fairly priced. Between the skilled bartender, perfect staff and delicious gourmet food at lower price points I can see this becoming our new "go to" restaurant. We could just stop in the tavern room for drinks and a bite. And I have my eye on a private room for my husband's birthday dinner.
Went on a Sunday evening, and although the place was empty (only one other couple in the dining room), the ambiance is very nice, we sat next to a burning fireplace and a large window looking out onto Main St.
The menu has both small plates and main courses. We shared a very nice "signature" salad (they call it Mabel). We also wanted to try a small plate of glazed lamb ribs, but our waitress informed us that they were out of lamb, it was available with pork. Uh no, so we had miso glazed beef tenderloin which was quite good and well presented.
They have a fairly limited menu of main courses, we tried the Root Vegetable Pappardelle as well as the White Bean Cassoulet. The Pappardelle noodles were perfectly cooked and the dish had a slight sweetness to it, but it was very tasty, not overpowering. The Cassoulet was also quite good, with roasted vegetables and duck sausage, though probably it would be better suited to the small plates menu.
Oh, and on Sunday nights their wines are half-price :) We had a very flavorful Pinot Noir, a bargain at $22.
Overall, quite enjoyable. I just don't know how they will survive if they only get 4 people in their dining room on a Sunday night.
We continue to have wonderful meals at the Stockton Inn. We went for my husband's birthday this time and were pleased to find they have done a small plates/sharing menu. Everyone was able to order a number of dishes and some shared at the table. For me, two small plates is usually plenty. I had the grilled pear salad, which was delicious, along with the mushroom agnolotti, also very good. Desserts are very good as well.
We are low carb individuals. I would recommend alternatives to the starch with every meal. Cauliflower mash is an excellent staple as replacement for the starch in the meals. Or flexible accommodation to substitutions with another vegetable. Having said that, our dinner was excellent.
Dinner was a delightful experience! The historic setting is beautiful and well maintained. The ambiance is cozy and warm with fireplaces burning and candles lit on each table. Our salmon entrees were delicious - cooked to perfection and the accompanying potatoes and kale quite tasty. We will be looking forward to dining there again.
Our almost weekly visit to the Stockton Inn and it could have not been better.
Again a divine foie gras, excellent oysters, hamachi crudo, cheese agnolotti .....
A lot of other creative and exciting items on the menu, till next time...
Frances is an attentive server and Judd's drinks the best, as always.
We had a wonderful time a couple of nights ago at The Stockton Inn. Everything--from the service, to the food, to the ambiance--was top-rate. I am not easily pleased if the experience is less than optimal, and I came away with a strong desire to return to this historic restaurant.
In addition to having our food prepared by a creative and talented chef, we enjoyed the warm and efficient service provided by our waitress, Sam. We will be back!
A charming find in southern Hunterdon County. Great find, in an old stone building with a lot of charm. Seated next to a fire place and window, made the evening very relaxing and enjoyable. Food was spot on, and recommendations of our wait staff was spot on. Would definitely recommend and return.
What a lovely surprise! This was a last minute decision, and what a lovely evening! Aside from a crying infant ( I don't understand why people think it's ok to bring children to elegant, ADULT restaurants??) we had a wonderful and delicious dinner. The wait staff was helpful and attentive. We look forward to a return visit!
