The Library II
Great drinks to go along with dinner. The best salad bar. A family favorite
Amazing foot and the staff could not have been friendlier. We will definitely be back.
We have been eating at the Library II for 30 years, and have never been disappointed. My husband ordered the prime rib this time and said it was the best he'd ever had! My Classic 6 oz filet was cooked perfectly and was tender but tasty - rare plus. Our friends were happy with their selections too.
Not really into getting my own food when I go out for dinner. Don’t agree with the concept of waiting in line to order my food. I can do that at a fast food restaurant . Very good salad bar.
Went to celebrate our wedding anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great service and the best steak I’ve ever had! So many choices on the salad bar! My only complaint is that it is very dark but was ok once my eyes adjusted! Would surely go back again!
Food was delicious 😋. Salad bar great. We went during Happy hour so prices were better 😊 steak was very good a little pricey but delicious
1 of my favorite restaurants so we went for my birthday.
Over priced..and charred a $55 tomahawk steak!!! Everything is al a carte. Salad bar was awesome. Steak which is the star of the meal was a dud🤐
Always Enjoy it! Great salad bar!
And their steaks are also very good!
They have the best salad bar around and the food is always outstanding.
So expensive for a meal that had no flavor and the meat was so dry! We were so dissapointed.
Great as always. We come for birthday celebrations. Nice place for families to met.
We’ve dined here several times. Sadly, during this visit the service was poor and the food was bad. Our daughter found a worm in some strawberries from the salad bar. We notified the hostess and the strawberries were promptly removed from the salad bar. We weren’t even offered an apology and were still charged for the kid’s salad bar (it was only $6.95).
We had a hard time getting answers to simple questions about the kid’s meals. Nobody seemed to know what was going on. Our kid’s wanted the salad bar, in addition to their meals (it’s included with the adult meals) and we were simply inquiring about whether it was also included with the kid’s meals. Had to really argue with several of them to finally get an answer. Finally we just ordered them the salad bar in addition to their meals. There was a happy hour special for $8.95 for the salad bar and they just kept pushing that instead of offering the $6.95 option for the kid’s (it was very clearly offered on the kid’s menu). We pointed this out SEVERAL times and after all of that they still tried to put the adult happy hour special on the order. I literally had to stand there and tell them to cross it out on the order and change it to 2 “Kids”. Ridiculous!!!
The drinks took forever to order and get refills. It was early, 5:00 or 5:30 on a Wednesday night and the place wasn’t very busy. They didn’t seem understaffed. Service was just poor.
My wife and I didn’t like either of our meals. I got the seafood combo and she got the stuffed shrimp. They had a big sign outside stating that they’ve been awarded best steaks and seafood. We agree, their steaks have always been amazing. We decided to try their seafood based on that claim. Won’t do that again.
Finally, our bill was $140+ for 2 adult meals, 2 kids meals, 2 kids salad bars, 4 glasses of happy hour wine, single dessert, a happy hour appetizer, and 2 root beers. Pretty steep for a poor meal and poor service.
The BEST salad bar anywhere! if your looking for a great salad, this is the place to go! You don't even need to order anything else! But if you do, the steaks & seafood are always amazing! I had the Honeydew Martini & it was wonderful and of the deserts are always awesome, If you have room. The only negative is that the food comes out a little too quickly (crazy that this is a negative), but there is so much to enjoy at the salad bar, I never feel like I can finish my salad.
Apparently the restaurant does not give points for the reservation or accept the dining reward card. On top of that they were unapologetic and we’re willing to do nothing to help me resolve the issue. I was told to contact Opentable and straighten it out.
Ordered a filet medium well, it came butterflied. I was not asked if I wanted it butterflied so that was annoying. Partner ordered medium rare which was a little more like medium but tough and tasteless, needs some spicing up. Salad bar was good just like I remembered it. Wont be back anytime soon. No comparrison for other steak houses that are about the same price
Love the Library II and have been coming for years. My only problem is its way too dark. Needs to be cleaned up and have some better lighting.
Went on Labor Day for dinner. Food is always good. Beef cooked exactly as ordered. Huge salad bar!
A bit dark. Unusual ordering procedure. Huge salad bar. Good meats, but not extraordinary. Has been around for some time. Attentive service. Would return.
Many friends recommended it, I did not like it. Not my cup of tea. Waited forever for the waiter to take our drinks order. Didn’t know you have to go up to the kitchen counter and order, very inconvenient. My husband had the ribeye which was really good, I had the seafood combinationthat looked good but it was bland (lacked flavor) so took it home. Salad bar was a mess. Very pricey. Not worth my time, money, or drive.
I took my son in law and daughter here for dinner and everything was perfect. Steak and scallops were cooked to perfection and service was phenomenal.
Delightful salad bar. Fun atmosphere. The food was excellent.
the steaks were excellent , cooked as ordered .shrimp cocktail was very good and the side of mushrooms were great . as always the salad bar was well stocked with the freshest of everything .
Met my Son-in-Law for dinner. I had never been there before. He showed me the ropes on how to order at the window. It was so nice to see how they cut his filet and weighed it right there. I got the Ribeye which was amazing. The Salad Bar had more than you could ever get onto a plate and Happy Hour drink prices were more than reasonable. Great Place, Great Choice!!!!
Love that salad bar
Way OVER PRICED... Service wasn't that great.
SALAD BAR is EXCELLENT.
Way too dark inside. Especially for the older people who have a hard time seeing.
Great as always
Great happy hour! Gets crowded quickly because of how popular it is. Salad bar is great!
Great salad bar and great entrees.
Food was very good and salad bar is 5+ stars. Noise level was great for talking with friends. Plan on going again soon.
We had a wonderful time and the drinks were delicious!
They have the best salad bar!!
Great meal and unique atmosphere. Suggest you try it out
Always a great meal at the Library.
Best happy hour in South Jersey. Salad bar can't be topped anywhere!
The Library was excellent as usual I was up from Charleston, S. C.visiting friends and had been there many times in previous years and was pleased to find it still had the same quality food. I do find the seafood items very pricey but the beef is excellent.
I’ve been to this restaurant a handful of times in the past, and the food was always great. In fact, their steak and seafood was what I was most excited about. However, on this particular night even the meal was a bit of a let down unfortunately. The service itself wasn’t anything special and the night as a whole was pretty disappointing. My visit didn’t pan out the way that I hoped but I understand that you can’t have a great experience every single time, no matter where you go.
With that being said, I didn’t care much about all of it until I got home and realized that there were discrepancies between my bank statement and the restaurant receipt. My bill total came to $203.06 and after a $45 gift certificate was applied it went down to $158.06, which I paid on my debit card. I also handed my waitress $40 cash (a 20% tip off of the $203.06 total).
The receipt that I signed had $158.06 printed on it but when I got home I checked my bank statement and it showed that the restaurant had actually charged me $189.67. I tried my best to be understanding, thinking it was an honest mistake... but then I did the math and realized that 20% of $158.06 is $31.61 ... and $158.06 plus $31.61 equals $189.67. It was too coincidental to overlook. I thought that maybe they automatically added a 20% gratuity but that couldn’t be right either considering the receipt that I signed still said $158.06.
Ultimately I ended up calling the restaurant that same night to speak to a manager. He said that he’d look into it and that he’d call me back, which he did. When we spoke the second time he told me that he isn’t sure why my bank says $189.67 because it was entered into the credit card machine as $158.06 and that’s what it came up for him. He told me that I could call back the next day between 10:30am and 3:30pm to speak with accounting since they handle the credit card machines. I called the restaurant twice that next morning and no one answered the phone so that’s where I’m at now.
Always a great place to relax and catch up after a long day. Salad bar is excellent and consistently good food and service.
First time going after hearing so much about the place. An ok experience overall but wayyyyyy overrated. The steaks were average, mine was a 10oz filet but dud not taste anything like you'd get at a steak place and not in a good way. The meat was tough, flavorless but cooked as I like it. One of our party had the end cut which he said was excellent. Another had a London broil that was nice enough but the presentation looked awful. The salad bar was excellent but not cold enough. The layout offers all kinds of things but was not the greatest quality either. The sides of mushrooms and baked potatoes were fine though. Nice ambience just not stellar food.
Good service. Food was ok. One steak was under cooked
Haven't been back in years and just as excellent as I remembered it.
