“Really like this place!”

The Station Pub and Grub
Ranked #12 of 33 Restaurants in Bernardsville
Restaurant details
Reviewed 19 August 2014

We have had dinner here three times in the last few weeks and were surprised to read the negative comments in the other reviews.

We live several miles away, and have been looking for the type of place where we can have dinner outdoors when the weather is nice and we don't feel like cooking at the last minute...the type of place where you can come as you are, with a relaxing atmosphere. And we think we found it.

There's nothing fancy about the place. Not likely the place you would pick for a special occasion, but we have found the food to be consistently very good or better. We think "pub and grub" underdescribes the restaurant. It's definitely a step above that...just take a look at the menu on line.

We thought the burgers and grilled salmon salad were very good, and the fish tacos were excellent. And we have never had better fried calamari, even at much higher priced restaurants.

One word of advise, come early when the weather is nice as the patio has only a few tables, and they fill fast, especially on Saturday evening.

For starters, this place is friendly...everyone says hello when you come in, and the bartenders could not be nicer - their prices are modest at the bar, and the menu is very fair.

It remains one of the last true-blue taverns in the area that doesn't leave you with "dining remorse", that sick feeling that you just got ripped off when you are leaving.

Food is surprisingly good, even the thin-crust pizza! Very good hamburgers and other dishes sides as well. There is something here for everybody. I just wish they had fried chicken, which is one of my weaknesses.

We were looking for a local place for a very casual dinner and settled on the Station. The corn beef sandwich is excellent and the beet salad very good. Everthing else we had was average at best which pretty much was what we expected. The beer was cold and you get to watch TV from nearly every table, which was important since the World Cup was on. Service was so so and the waiter acted like he was having a bad day. It met our needs for that night and the pricing was reasonable for a pub.

I love the ability for patio dining as it's always nice to sit outside when you can. It took forever for the waiter to realize we were his table . We ordered drinks and again he disappeared for a bit. Finally we placed our order. I had the shaved steak sandwich which was just plain greasy. Even the bread tasted greasy . My husband had the turkey BLT which was pretty good. Huge portion in the turkey sandwich and we probably should have split that. We had to ask for refills of ice tea and then they only brought one. They had to go back and get another. It was just ok. I have never felt this place had it all together which is a shame because it could be a real goldmine. They apparently have changed the menu but it's still really lacks . Disappointing is probably the best description. Prices are very reasonable . Won't go back for a long time.

I have tried the Station 3 times. Each time I think that the last visit was a fluke and that it won't be so mediocre. But, alas, I am wrong every time. The ambiance/renovation is nice. But, the food is so-so. Hamburgers are nothing to write home about. No one has ever raved about their meal here. It looks like maybe it would be a good place to grab a drink and appetizers at the bar but don't waster your money on dinner.
