Welcome to New Jersey's Legendary Steak House

Rod's Steak & Seafood Grille, an area landmark and winner of New Jersey Monthly's 'Best Steakhouse' award, offers lunch and dinner daily as well as the finest Sunday Brunch in New Jersey.

The restaurant's new design, rich wood paneling and highly polished brass, lends a classic elegance to the sophisticated atmosphere. For an intimate and unique experience, dinner aboard the private Parlour Cars is sure to be remembered. Formerly the private domain of the rich and famous, these beautifully refurbished, turn of the century railway cars are exquisitely complimented by the haute cuisine of Rod's esteemed Executive Chef.

Still the employees favorite for our Christmas party (I let then pick the venue). The service was a bit slower than normal this time, but everyone understands during holiday season. A great experience yet again. Highly recommended...again!

One of the worst meals in recent memory. Terrible steak, terrible salads, terrible soup, terrible service. And terribly overpriced for the quality of food served. Skimpy cocktails too. Oh brother!

The food and portions is what would bring us back. The overall service was not good. Our party of 8 was disappointed in the lack of personal attention and simple happiness given to us by our server. When making the reservation for 8 on 12/28/17, I even asked for a fun, happy server because we are a fun group. We absolutely did not receive that. When we entered, we were ignored by the
1st set of female workers that were seating individuals in the front bar area. We had never been to Rods before so, we had to figure on our own where to go check in our reservation for the main dining room.
Overall, food good ~ service poor, unenthusiastic & unappreciative.

Really didn't like the change in the potato gratin. Way too soupy and heavy. Should be layered and very thin potato

Steak was ordered medium and came well done. Sent back politely and then came out totally rare. Third time was ok but rest of meal was over. Waiter took it off the check but was not a great experience for a steakhouse. Enjoyed drinks and apps at the bar before dinner.

Rod's was an excellent venue for our get together. The seating lived up to its billing and the food and service was great. Great menu options. The ambiance and historical setting inside the train car offered a special element to the gathering. Enjoyed it thoroughly
