Because we love the setting here, we decided to give On The Rocks another chance to redeem itself. It failed. Crab Cakes (2) were the smallest I have ever seen. The sauce that accompanied them was even smaller. The outside was nicely crisped, but the...More

This place is suitable to eat and/or drink after a round of golf. They're trying to hold themselves out as a fine stand-alone restaurant but it isn't working. The food is OK, but way overpriced for the quality and, depending on where you sit, there's...More

I attended the Taste of Middlesex County. Atmosphere was terrific, staff was very friendly. The 3 courses I chose were plentiful and delicious. My only negative was that the creme brulee was not freshly burnt. I would like to go back for dinner again.
