We tried this yesterday, we were very happy with our meals. We had gone for lunch and the place was starting to get busy right before we left. We ordered onion rings for an appetizer and they were cooked to perfection. I enjoy a horseradish dip and our waitress made it for us! I had the grilled chicken breast BLT,... More

The food was good, the place looks good but the atmosphere was not welcoming and the service was poor and staff was not friendly.

Dear Niki, There is always a manager on duty. When you spoke to him/her, what was the reply? We are sorry this happened to you, but please ask for Mgr. Chris Lennon the next time you are around Vernon, or simply call him at 973-764-2600. Thank you, Peter More

We stopped here on the way home from Crystal Springs. We couldn't have been more happy! It was delicious and service was great! We wished we would have went here instead of the restaurant at the hotel the night before! I would highly recommend and will definitely return!

I have been here several times and the food is never worth the money I have spent on it. Most recently my boyfriend and I ordered a pizza on a Sunday night ahead of time for pick up. He gets the pizza and it is burnt past the point of being edible. He immediately goes inside asking for them to... More

We eat here about every few weeks. We have better than average and lower than average meals. Service is spotty as well.It is definitely a friendly atmosphere with average pricing.

Almost every time we have eaten here, we have left happy and satisfied. The servers, for the most part, are very attentive as is the manager.The entrees are a little pricey which is why I tend to get a sandwich or salad and I was surprised at the $9.00 charge to add steak to my daughter's salad. If I have... More

This place came highly recommended, but the service was incredibly slow and the food was disappointing. The waitress seemed overwhelmed and it would have been helpful if there was a designated person for preparing non alcoholic drinks and desserts. We had a salad and a pizza and were there 2 hours. After 730 pm. We won't be back.

We own a timeshare in Vernon and have always been searching for a good reasonably priced restaraunt in the area. Well this is it! The restaurant itself is in a strip mall but once inside you feel like you are somewhere else. Very nice decor with a huge brick oven to the side. The menu is extensive as well as... More
