Well maybe slightly better than average---if only for the ambiance. I enjoyed the asparagus soup. My grilled chicken sandwich was nothing special---though the main ingredient, the chicken breasts, were first rate and well cooked. My host had a club which he liked, accompanied by an overly large basket of fries, which he shared. The service seems a bit confused. I... More

My husband took me to Rods last week end, we sat in the train, the decoration was amazing. It was very tranquil and private, they had a snapper special, which was amazing. One of the waiter Marc was very attentive to our table, we didn't have to wave at him once. The food and service surely made it one of... More

Went to College right down the street have gone to Rod's for years and years cause it was close...went recently because we were up at Convent and had lunch with some friends. Over priced for just average food so sorry to say!! Drinks were fine though. Time for a revamp the hunter green and brass library look from the '80s... More

We have been going to Rods for 40 something years as a "special occaision" destination. Of the 4 of us, 3 had the filet mignon and I had the "smaller" version of the prime rib. The others all thought the filet was "good" and I thought prime rib "average," which was a disappointment. I should have said something but for... More

At our table we got a lamb burger, hamburger, lobster roll and an Italian Meal. We all enjoyed the food, our waiter and the outstanding choice of beverages. They even offered samples of their unique beer. They have a great business, we came in at 7 and we were seated at 8 so my suggestion is to be their very... More

So I am a bit biased since I have been staying at the Madison for work for the past 15 years off an on. For a hotel restaurant Rod's knocks it out of the park. If it weren't for that convenience, perhaps I would feel differently. The food is good - but by far the steaks are the way to... More

We were two couples visiting this restaurant for the first time. The atmosphere was very cool making you feel like you were dining in a throw back to the early 20th century. I ordered my steak medium rare. It arrived somewhere between medium and well-done. With that said, the flavor was good. It just wasn't what I ordered. The waiter... More

We had a business dinner with a party of twelve. Took an eternity before we were asked for drinks or before we got some water. We always had to ask for a water refill. While the atmosphere is nice it is extremely loud so that it is hard to have a conversation. Not sure where they get their meat but... More

Description
Welcome to New Jersey's Legendary Steak House

Rod's Steak & Seafood Grille, an area landmark and winner of New Jersey Monthly's 'Best Steakhouse' award, offers lunch and dinner daily as well as the finest Sunday Brunch in New Jersey.

The restaurant's new design, rich wood paneling and highly polished brass, lends a classic elegance to the sophisticated atmosphere. For an intimate and unique experience, dinner aboard the private Parlour Cars is sure to be remembered. Formerly the private domain of the rich and famous, these beautifully refurbished, turn of the century railway cars are exquisitely complimented by the haute cuisine of Rod's esteemed Executive Chef.
