Flat out, I love Belmont Tavern and that's always where I want to go when we're in the area. It's like a throwback supper club, with "for the table" size portions and a unique atmosphere. Some day I'll try something new, but I always have...More

The Belmont Tavern is a landmark restaurant famously known for its Chicken Savoy, Shrimp Beeps and Cavetelli & Pot Cheese (ricotta). My favorite is the out-of-this-world Pork Francaise. Although it is not on the menu, request it! It's the best known "secret".

A classic NJ italian restaurant and bar located in Belleville, NJ. The Belmont has a long rich history in the Newark NJ area. Our wonderful, loyal customers come from all over NJ to visit and enjoy our classic and original dishes such as Stretch's Chicken Savoy, Shrimp Beeps, ziti pot cheese and many others. The Belmont is truly a NJ original. Many restaurants in NJ now have added many of our dishes to their menu's. The Belmont's famous dishes are often duplicated but never replicated.
