“A split personality”

The Station Pub and Grub
Ranked #12 of 33 Restaurants in Bernardsville
Restaurant details
Reviewed 29 March 2014

The first part of our visit was amateur hour, the dinner really quite good.
No reservations taken for fewer that 5. OK, I get that. We were told that it wouldn't be busy at 6PM and that if we called 10 minutes prior to arrival they would have a table ready. No table was available upon arrival. No big deal, a 20 minute wait, and we were perfectly happy to have a drink at the bar. It took 10 minutes to get the bartender's attention, despite both wives sitting at the bar and not wearing their cloaks of invisibility. One wine was wrong (the bartender caught her mistake), and she couldn't remember which beer had been ordered. We had to settle our bar bill as they couldn't run the tab with our dinner order. The hostess want's us to go to the table and the bartender is clueless about what is going on. Finally paid the bar tab and got to the table. None of the aforementioned was a problem taken individually, but taken together it really was so unprofessional as to be laughable.
Dinner seemed like it was a completely different restaurant. Attentive, professional service and very good food. We got a little time to talk and read the menu. Took an order for a round of drinks (all arrived promptly and as ordered) and the appetizers. Appetizers were on the table in less than 10 minutes. The Caesar salad was quite good (fresh, with just enough dressing), the other half of the table reported that the wings were excellent. The burgers were delicious - a wide variety of topping meant anyone could get the burger they wanted. Good flavor to the meat and cooked as ordered. There was a surprisingly wide variety of entrees available, not just burgers.
Would we go again? Sure. The rampant ineptitude of the first half hour was entertaining as long as you were in the right frame of mind. The dinner well worth it.

Had a great dinner and nice time at this restaurant. The food and service were great! I ordered the cheese steak sandwich which was excellent. Will be back for another satisfying meal in a nice pub atmosphere.

Stop with the family. Food was good, basic pub fare but done very well. The guacamole was great!! Dinners were quick and tasted good. Only complaint was every time the door open we were blasted with cold air. So don't sit near the door.

Perfect location directly across from train station in Bernardsville. Indoor and outdoor seating. Consistently nice staff and quick service especially at lunch. Menu has a wide variety of dinner style dishes (don't expect 5 star meals but definitely try the "Train Wreck"), a very consistent kitchen and a nicely stocked bar. Ambiance is just like that - casual and comfortable and the prices are fair for the local market. All in all one of my favorite places year round especially for lunch or some drinks after work.
