wow, what an experience, as I approached the center of Hightstown, there next to the Lake was a charming Tavern with an expansive porch/deck filled with families eating. The scenery was fantastic. And the steaks were awesome. a little on the high priced side, but worth every penny of the 22$ for the dinner. My traveling companion had a large hamburger, not as expensive as the steak. She was very pleased and she is a picky eater. There was a decent selection of beers. There was something special about how you experiece the NJ Pike with all its construction and newly painted traffic pattens and then, five minutes later; wha la, you are seating on the porch over looking the Lake in a historic building forgeting the traffic and enjoying one of the best steaks you may ever eat.

While the food was good and our waitress was good the dinner prices were pretty steep for a local tavern. The atomic wings were barely hot

This was our second time here. The server we had was not so good. We've been there before and had great service. The special was a burger, which was very good and a great price. There was karaoke which was.cool but the dj would start the song and walk away sometimes you couldn't hear the singer.

My boyfriend and I went with another couple for Karaoke. Since the special of the nite was the burgers we ended up getting them. Surprisingly they were very good!! It was definitely worth the $6.00. I couldn't even eat the whole burger. We were very disappointed with our waitress. She took forever to get our drinks, and honestly it was not as crowded in there as I have seen in the past. She would disappear for minutes at a time. Whenever we needed more drinks she was no where to be found. We should have just got up and gotten our own drinks. At one point in the night another waitress had to take our drink order because she couldn't find her either. We were extremely dissatisfied with the service.
