My husband had their drunken chicken which was delicious -huge portion, presented well and tasty. I had their Asian salmon salad which was fresh and prepared well. We would definitely have dinner here again. Friendly and efficient wait staff.

The drinks were tasty and affordable. The food --- not so great. What passed for a steak sandwich was actually 3 nicely cooked large pcs. of steak on VERY HARD pcs. of bread (glad I don't have dentures!!) I might try them again--- but stay away from their faux steak sandwiches!

I ordered the Grilled Shrimp special for about $21 and was greeted with a plate of French Fries with 5 medium sized shrimp on the side. It came without the chipotle dipping sauce and cole slaw which I had to request. After the server checked the special menu to make sure that I was entitled to it, he went to get it and returned about 5 minutes later. By this time, the shrimp was no longer hot and barely edible. The server felt bad, spoke to the manager and ordered me 3 more shrimp which came in about 10 minutes after my wife and I were completely done with the food (including the chipotle dipping sauce which came late in the first place). I will not be returning to this dining establishment.

I am happy I did. The place was rocking but not over crowded. The food was excellent. The staff was awesome. The prices(which everyone cares about) were more than reasonable. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, and I plan on returning.

Location was easy to get to. The wait staff left something to be desired. Food portions were substantial. Would recommend to others but with the side note of saying be very clear to the wait staff what you want as there may be a few issues. We were also advised prior to our visit that on your birthday you get a free bottle of champagne. That never happened although we stated very clearly that we were there for a birthday.

The warning flag should have been when we walked in at 8:45 on a Saturday night and the place was empty. Ordered calamari as an appetizer which was chewy , slimy and pretty much inedible. Entrees came out and my steak was tough, dried out and looked like it had been sitting for a while. Vegetables were just soaked in oil and had little flavor, mashed potatoes were bland and cold. I'm not sure what has happened to this restaurant but I was very disappointed and will definitely not be back.

Wasn't the best idea first official football sunday. It was very loud the brunch was far from where we were sitting since we went at 130 there wasn't much options for food left. It took atleast 15 minutes for the server to come over. Once we did he was very apologetic but at that point we were pretty annoyed. I had been here before and the food was pretty good, probably better off ordering from the menu and avoid the buffet on a Sunday.

At that point we ordered,and I ordered soup with my entree. It took 20 minutes to get my soup, and that was after asking about it. It was a tasteless cup of lobster crab bisque. It then took at least another 20 minutes to have our entrees delivered, which means that those at my table who did not order an appetizer waited over 40 minutes to get food. We were never offered bread. The mashed potatoes were ice cold, and my daughters filet mingon sandwhich had very little meat on it. The food was not the quality we expected. We had been planning on having dessert, but because the service was soooo slow we declined dessert.

It's also a great place to sit and people watch. My one complaint was that about half way through dinner someone started fiddling with the lights. They were dimming and brightening for about 10 minutes.

Also the desserts such as the pecan pie and brownies were served warm and with whipped cream. Definitely comfort food. I would go back again and have recommended it to friends!

I had the salmon which was a bit bland but my friend's lamb shank was delicious. The food portions were generous. The bread was fresh and good. Also the salad with the meal was very nice. I had the pecan pie which my friend had the tiramisu. The pie was nice and warm and the tiramisu tasted homemade. The wait staff came by frequently to see how we were doing.

The selection was huge and everything was delicious. I went back for dinner with some friends and it was good, but I wasn't as impressed. The bacon cheeseburger was just ok, there wasn't much meat on the nachos, but the best part of the meal was the toll house cookie pie - delicious! The waitress, while very efficient, stopped by out table a few too many times.

We like the place and the food is good for what we need, but we always have a problem with trying to use the 10% off coupon that's in the local paper. I explained right from the start we planned on 10% off - ordered 5 cokes and 1 beer. Found out that the 1 beer (happy hour price) canceled the offer. We told waiter to charge full price for it. Later someone ordered a cocktail and same happened again. I'm sure these waiters are under pressure to try to not give the 10%, but come on. This was way over the top. We tipped very well, but it got embarrassing to be constantly reminding him we were using the offer. I'll be telling the management.

The waiter was a little hard to understand because of the noise from the TV and bar area downstairs, but it worked out. The burgers my friends had were delicious, but the soup and quesadilla were only OK in my opinion. It's an OK place, nothing to write home about food-wise, and service was a little slow.

While they have a great menu that is somewhat varied and delicious, it is basically pub food. It would have been nice to see a nice roasted chicken or fresh seafood option as a change.

If you love to brunch....this is a great spot. First and foremost for me....it is kid-friendly! That means......it aint stuffy! Chocolate chip pancakes........and mimosa's for mom and dad! And better yet....if you live in the area....you can walk!

Food is always good and service is even better. One of the best brunches in Bergen County too!

My sin had one of the special chicken dishes and enjoyed it . Restaurant has 2 dining rooms. We were in the one that had at least 5 flat screen TVs. Great if you want to catch all the games while you eat.

Got there, asking a second hostess if I could have an ice bucket and she obliged by asking a nearby waitress to get one. Then five minutes later, our waiter rushes to our table (and without greeting us first) decides to inform us that the bottle is prohibited from the establishment and removes the ice bucket from our side. He then came back fifteen minutes later to 1) take our drink order and 2) "apologize". Thank you for making my Valentine's Day dinner one I will never forget, for all the wrong reasons. Poor management of staff. Poor table etiquette. Will not be returning.

Our server was attentive and very helpful. The only complaint that I have ( and I use that word for lack of another) is that the tables were very small and difficult for 4 people to eat at comfortably. We were eventually moved to the back to a larger table when another person arrived, so we were all able to be comfortable. I highly reccomend The Cornerstone and I will be back.
