Book early for most nights - you have been warned! Applies even if you are staying I the host Madison Hotel - doesn't seem to be any short cut in that scenario. Good menu, good beer selection and attentive staff. Add in generous portions and tasty food and you will not be disappointed. Friendly bar if you are on your... More

loved the dark wood all over the place. The waiters are all dressed in white and are very attentive without being overbearing. The food is excellent.

Following a visit to a local arboretum, we popped into Rods for a late lunch. Nice menu, and decent execution from the kitchen. Nice beer menu for those thirsty as well!

Food was amazing, fish station was fresh and beautifully presented. Carving station's ham was also a favorite, nice and lean and very tasty, a nice side of pasta Alfredo sauce. The omelette station had a bit of a wait but was worth the wait. Hot food was nicely presented and hot. Looking forward to going back again.

A restaurant more for special occasions, it is pricey and the food is very good, if not excellent. Portions are more than generous, service responsive. The steak, sampling, some of my husband's, was first rate and done exactly as he requested. My salmon entree was fine. Only caveat - the main dining room has a live band that makes conversation...

I have been here for weddings so we tried it for dinner. The food was mediocre and the service was not that good. I had to ask for a hot cup of water 3 times. There servers were chatty with each other in the corner and not very attentive. Wouldn't go out of my way to go.

We went to Rod's for a Sunday Brunch with longtime friends. We had a lovely time. The food was fresh and abundant and the service was attentive at first. The mistake we made was the we went at 10:30am, wanting mimosas. We forgot that on Sundays they cannot serve alcohol until noon! But we had a good time anyway. The... More

We went here for out anniversary and it was outstanding as always. We ate in the train car which is always our favorite. The service was excellent as was the food. Mr. Keller came through the car checking on everyone which is a nice touch. I've been going here for 35 years and enjoyed every time.

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.
