All was okay, but the dining area, which was a closed off quaint porch, was chilly in the evening. Order their cocktails because they don’t necessarily know how to make classic standards such as a Manhattan. The waitress was new, but very attentive.

I was so overwhelmed by the wonderful service. We had the all you can eat crab legs and they were excellent. The waiter kept them coming. I told everyone I know that this is one trip they should make. This is a great dining experience.

We had a reservation, one of 2 in the book that I looked at since no one at the check-in desk. I was not happy that we had to go upstairs since my husband is age 85 and breathing problems. He said OK so we climbed the steps with him getting out of breath. Was told we should have specified where we wanted to sit but since we have never been there, have could we specify. Food was fine but we are at the shore a lot and we've eaten a lot of crab cakes so I would not say they are the best in the area as noted in the SJ Magazine. No handicap parking spaces which my husband normally uses. I'm sure this is a popular place for the younger crowd.
Our server was very friendly - she knew we were not happy re seating - and she did try to make our visit pleasant - she did her job very well.

I arrived 15 minutes early to my reservation. They had no idea I even had a reservation. They had no computer, little notes on paper spread about their host stand. The man looked dazed and confused and didn't know what to do. Told me I'd have to wait atleast 40 mins so they could get a table together as he frantically ran around scattered brained. The place is run down and murky looking. We left without ever getting our table.

The service on the second floor was terrible. It took over an hour for our food to come out. Drinks took about 30 mins. This was on Father's Day, but we were the only people in the upstairs dining room. Seems like forgetting about people up there is a constant problem.

Wanted to take my wife out for an Anniversary celebration. The noise level (downstairs on the "porch" was ridiculously loud. Wife's Fillet was cooked as ordered and tasty but did not come with the Au Jus as mentioned on the menu. My Broiled Seafood dinner was simply awful. This food was not "freshly prepared." It included 4 shrimp, 4 scallops and a crab stuffed flounder. All items were doused in "red seafood flavorings" and appeared to be something that must have been shipped in frozen to be heated and served. No, I would not go again.

Marlton Tavern did not have record of my reservation. Waitress who greeted my party appeared annoyed that we needed a table for 5. She told me she did not know how to credit my Open Table account. Did not find someone who could do so. Please credit my account.

Thank you.

Our family of 9 gathered here for an early New Year's Eve dinner and were delighted to have most of the upper floor to ourselves. Our waitress was excellent and catered to the many different dietary preferences. Our meals were delicious and many of us took home leftovers. We travelled from 3 different states to be together and didn't make a reservation until the day before so we were really pleased to be able to be together. We had come here last fall to celebrate the engagement of a granddaughter so we were prepared for the best and delighted to experience it once again. We'll be back for another celebration.

We went on Christmas Eve and they were busy. BUT, the waiter forgot an entree, the soups that went with the meal and water that one of us asked for. He was apologetic and wrapped the food up to take home. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was quiet. I will go there again.

Had some problems unfortunately. Dinner reservations for Christmas Eve. Party of 7. We were sat at the entrance first table. Promised door would not be used but it was often. Was sitting near a service station as well. Host apologized in advance for f bombs coming from bar which our table was also near. All seats open but this is where we were sat. Waitress promised fresh bread was in the oven baking. We received old hard stale bread. Asked for new and it was warm and fresh. But they served us really old bread. Out of the 7 two dishes came out incorrect. I ordered the filet. It was raw inside. Raw, uncooked. It had to go back twice. We were very disappointed in this place and won't be going back.

Unfortunately. the reservation we made through Open Table was not recorded at the restaurant. We still received a table relatively quickly, but the staff was somewhat disorganized. Granted, a Christmas party was occurring in their main dining room, but I felt that we were not receiving an appropriate level of attention. For example, I very clearly requested balsamic dressing for a salad, only to receive blue cheese. The prosciutto-basil panini was quite good, so all was not lost.

We made a reservation through Open Table and received a text message to confirm that we were all set. When we showed up for our reservation, the gentleman at the host station ignored us for the first five minutes. Then when he finally acknowledged us, we told him that we had made a reservation through Open Table. Without even looking up, he said "oh, that should have been shut off, we cannot accommodate you" and literally walked away without as much as an apology. My husband, 12 year old son and I just stood there in disbelief. I cannot believe how rudely we were treated and refuse to ever dine at the Marlton Tavern again. I was very disappointed to say the least!

I made a reservation in the upstairs dining room for a birthday dinner for 2 95 years olds. We arrived on time and were told that we couldn't be seated upstairs because there was a party that occupied the entire room. They offered to seat us on the porch but it would be a 20-30 minute wait. But there was no where to wait without simply standing in the bar. We left and went to Brio Tuscan Grille and had a wonderful time.

They knew we had elderly people in the party and should have done more to accommodate us. Shame on you Marlton Tavern!

We had a great table in the front (windowed porch) looking out over Main Street. Our server was just great! She was there just enough, but not too much. Drinks arrived quickly. We ordered the chicken flatbread appetizer. It was shaped like a pizza and was a bit hard to pick up, but it was delicious! I ordered one of the specials, a shrimp and crab fra diavolo. I loved it! Had a decent amount of spice, but my mouth wasn't on fire either. Took half home since I ate too much salad, bread, and appetizers. It heated up great in a pot on the stove (no microwave). Prices were good, fair for what we ordered. I'd definitely go back. Would probably check out the bar area if it was just me and my hubby. I liked the looks of it.
