We found ourselves in this area during dinnertime and just took a gamble. WOW if I was always this lucky life would be fantastic ! This was hitting the Powerball. It look like most customers were eating meat dishes and they looked great but we were on a health kick and we both ordered fish based dishes. We got the best fish dishes- better than any Seafood restaurant in a long time. The service was great, the food was great, the location was cool, felt like we were in a chalet in the mountains. Totally unexpected great surprise !!! It's over an hour away from our home, but I will find a reason to go there again soon !

I am so glad I choose to go to the Station at Mountain Lakes. I knew the reviews were VG but it's always a gamble. My friend and I were delighted by the food, the value, the setting, etc. We shared the excellent bread pudding and I am glad we did: it was huge! All the portions were generous and very reasonable for the quality of this special restaurant :)

Excellent food, but disappointing (and SLOW) service. We arrived fairly early and were seated right away, but it was nearly 20 minutes from the time our drink and starter orders were taken until our entree orders were taken. And it was 90 minutes until we were served our meals. The restaurant seemed pretty busy, so a faster service could probably make a big impact in terms of additional sales.

We came in for an early pre Thanksgiving dinner. We were promptly seated. the service was very attentive. We all ordered steaks. Having had many NYC premium steaks, I would say that these were comparable and very well prepared. the deserts were also very good. Creme Brule was especially memorable. I had a very nice cup of espresso with a perfect crema. The manager came by to inquire about our experience. Very nice fellow.
It is a two tier restaurant with the upstairs bar.
Overall a wonderful dinner experience. I would readily return.

The Station always delivers consistent quality and service. Don't miss the amazing scalloped potatoes and mouth-watering mac 'n' cheese, along with the delicious pear tart. Also love having calories listed on most menu items.

I held a business lunch for 6 people and it couldn't have been nicer. The place is conducive to business and socializing. There was a waitstaff person nearby at all times. Everyone enjoyed their food, it looked and tasted delicious.
Thank you for a great experience.
