The Library II
Did not like their assessments of a charge for use of a credit card.
This is our favorite local place to go. Great food and nice staff.
We have always enjoyed the Library II. But the prices are high. And no mention of the service charge for using a credit card.
It was very hot and crowded. Food was expensive, not a great value.
Our server, Michelle was attentive and pleasant. Our meal was cooked perfectly and the salad bar was fresh and plentiful. For a special occasion meal, the Library II is the place to go!
Library II is the best Filet hands down in the area, Mushrooms are a must they are amazing. Salad Bar is top notch and side dishes like Baked Potato's are also very good.
Delicious food, fast and friendly service, our waiter John was great. Had a fantastic birthday dinner. Couldn’t be happier with our experience last night.
Outstanding Food and Salad Bar as always!!
Outstanding as usual! Always a great dinning experience.
cute place where you can even pick out a book and bring it home! salad bar is clean and everything is fresh. food was great, better than expected (dated menu/traditional steakhouse). great for a special occasion :) everyone was very nice too.
I thought the food was good. However I prefer a waiter to take my order. My ribeye was supposed to be medium but was really too red. Salad bar and appetizers were great.
I was very disappointed in the food. My son’s steak was ok. Not great. My crab cakes were inedible. All filler and incredibly salty. The rice it came with was also really salty. The salad bar was good and our server was great.
Great to have it open again. It hasn’t missed a beat and Angelique has is running like a top.
This is not the Library that I knew! The ceasar dressing was watery. The ribeye was so-so and I don't want someone else making my salad.
Don't blame covid bc even shoprite permits you to make your own salad.
I'm not happy with the new owners!
Glad it reopened, great salad bar and some solid steaks.
We were very excited about coming back to this classic restaurant! Walking in nothing has changed! The salad bar is a person making it for you! To me it’s a personal thing it was a little weird, but with covid I understand!! I ordered lobster tail that I could wait for, and it came out tasteless and needed a lot of salt! I never add salt! What’s the worst of all is it used to be $80 and now it is $137. On top of that if you use a credit card they charge you 3.5%. We will never be back!
Significant price increase. Mostly disappointed because our gift card was not accepted. Dined at The Library on consecutive weeks. During our first visit was told the gift card machine was not working but promised that would accept our card the following week. The following week same story, did not accept gift card. However, was assured the gift card would be honored in the future.. Doubt it!
We haven’t been here for awhile, restaurant is very dated, food wasn’t like it used to be. It’s a shame because their service was excellent. We won’t be back.
The salad bar is one of the best in the Delaware Valley, not only the quality and items, but the freshness and clean spread makes it even more attractive.
Started with chocolate martini that was perfect. Had
the surf and turf. Best lobster I’ve ever had. Cooked to perfection and so sweet.
Never disappoints. Love the salad bar!!! Hear selection of everything.
The food was average for the price. The filet had no flavor. The mushrooms and onions had very little mushrooms. The garlic mashed potatoes tasted like straight garlic and weren’t very good. I do recommend the scallops wrapped in bacon. I probably won’t return just for the appetizers and salad bar hoping dinner will be good.
Our waiter did an excellent job and all three of us enjoyed our food. Each meal was prepared perfectly.
First time here after many recommendations and it was great. We all ordered filet and they came perfectly prepared. Sides are large and best to share. One suggestion though. Make sure you are not seated next to the salad bar near where you place your steak order. A line forms and intrudes on the tables there. We asked to be moved and thankfully they were able to accommodate. The staff did not seem surprised by our request. One person felt like he was going to sit down with us.
It needs a refresh, the chairs and the tables look like they were bought at a garage sale, and certainly doesn't match the prices of the food. Great salad bar,
Food was good. Service was a bit slow. I would return.
Steak is always good. Always cooked correctly to your request. Prices are pretty steep though. Definitely worth the occasional dining out. Make reservations on Friday’s and Saturday’s. They get pretty busy. Waitress was attentive. Salad bar has many options. No appetizers, a coffee, coke and dinner for 2 with 3 sides total was $111.
Day after Xmas. A bit noisy but drinks and food were excellent. Staff was super from the kitchen to the
Unique ambience and outstanding food made our first visit to this restaurant a very enjoyable evening.
Way way Too dark. Price of meats were expensive for the cut and quality of the finished product drinks were ok but overall spent a lot of money on an somewhat ok meal. Next night went out and had an unbelievable meal for 1/3 the price I spent here.
The reason We go to The Library is for the terrific salad bar with bagel twists and their awesome lobster tail!! It is very expensive but so worth it if you love lobster tail!! It is the only place I will order because they know what they are doing!! Always cooked perfectly!!!
Unbeatable salad bar, superb steaks cooked to perfection and a very good waitress.
The staff is very attentive. The food is great. No complaints!
My husband and I went especially for me to get the Lobster tail and it is the best around! I am willing to pay the $85 for this piece of tail!!! Lol. You can’t beat the salad bar! Fresh as can be! I love the bagel twists and butter!! My husband got the filet which is always fine!!! But I come for the lobster!!!
It was my birthday and I must say I had a wonderful prime rib I wasn’t too pleased with my big potato but the salad bar made up for it I also tried the summer sangria which was wonderful and all my friends and family seem to really love the ambience of the library since some of them have never been before . Absolutely worth checking out if you’ve never been
Outstanding meal and great service as always. Good luck eating dinner after having that awesome salad bar!
Father came to visit my family and it was the first visit to NJ. He wanted a good steak so I thought Library right away. We ordered 2 6 ounce ultra trim filets and my father a 10 ounce ultra trim filet. The steaks were not cooked as we ordered and there was big pieces of fat on them. I asked the waitress to explain what ultra trim was and she said that our steaks were not that. I told her that’s what we ordered. She said that she would only charge the regular price and I responded that I wasn’t concerned about that as much as when can we get our steaks back because we were hungry. Mid meal we got our servers switched. That was such a pain. This is my second bad experience with this restaurant and I hate when I have to get up and find the server.
My 16oz Ny Strip had too much fat on it for my liking!
Cold food. Very disappointing
Great drinks to go along with dinner. The best salad bar. A family favorite
