    First time for my husband (picky eater) and son to eat at The Lauber and they both loved it. My advice is to split meals so you can try more things. Everything is delicious! I was glad to have a reservation, we got right in.

    Food was great! We had a table of five but there was a lot of noise in the restaurant that made it difficult to have conversations at our own table. The waitress was also not very familiar with everything on the menu and gave vague answers to some of our questions. Will likely return though as the food quality was excellent for the price.

    Service was so slow. Our server totally ignored us it felt like. She was having a full on 10 minute conversation with the table next to us and then just walked right by us like we weren’t even there. Finally had to flag her down. This happened multiple times. Food was very good. Server was polite just not focused and not moving. Literally a 10 minute conversation. I was like pull up a seat and take a break.

    Great food, location, and outdoor space. The noise level inside is unpleasant and impossible for visiting. Need some “soft” furnishings to absorb the sound.

    Food just average. Pizza (got for appetizer) was better than our actual meal. Very noisy and cool since overhead doors were open near our table and we were told they couldn’t close them.

    I ordered the blueberry bbq pizza. There was only 3 small pieces of the pulled pork (very small) . So basically it was a bbq pizza with cheese for $17. The taste was ok, would have been better with more toppings. Every one else's food was amazing.

    Calvin made our first experience to The Lauber a great one! After a long day, he was a breath of fresh air with an amazing sense of humor and great suggestions! :) Food was amazing, as well! It got a bit difficult to hear those at our table, as the place was filling up, but good for business! We will definitely be back!! :)

    This was my first visit to The Lauber. I had heard good things about it and have been meaning to try it for quite some time. The Lauber didn’t disappoint. We made reservations and were greeted warmly and promptly. The ambiance was what I expected. Loud, but not obnoxious. The food was amazing. I highly recommend starting with the cauliflower and curds. The drinks were well-made and reasonably priced. Our sandwiches were tasty and the service outstanding. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu and her recommendations were spot on. Overall, I absolutely recommend The Lauber for a fun night out. However, do not go to The Lauber for an intimate dinner.

    My husband and I stopped in for a bite before a show at the Morris Performing Arts Center. It was a Thursday evening, and we had a reservation, which was great because the place was full! The group of 4 that walked in ahead of us was told 40-45 minutes to be seated, so definitely make a res. We were seated right away, the service was fantastic. We each ordered an Old Fashioned and split the hummus appetizer. Both were delicious. Then we split the Show Stopper pizza, also super tasty! We would definitely come back here. It was 50 degrees and super windy when we visited, but they have outdoor patio seating that would be a great hangout on a beautiful day. It’s walking distance to the Morris, so be sure to stop in before your event!
