Live music, fresh air, good service, tasty "pub" food. It all comes together here. Wonderful use of the "train station"! Friendly wait staff. We had draught beer and the Mediterranean Humus -- we had dinner plans elsewhere. What we saw served all looked fresh and plentiful. We will be back. Oh and Double Deuce was awesome!!!!!!

This place is totally cool. Their idea was great to make the waiting room at the station into a dining room and a great, NY type bar. right next to it. Come on guys,(and girls) stop in for a drink after a tiring day at the office

Great date place to grab a nice drink and dinner. Also a great family place. We like to sit outside with the kids so they can watch the trains. They have crayons and kids menu. My kids love the pizza! We love the burgers and awesome salads! Everything is good!

Great neighborhood gem...easy relaxed, fun and Inviting...great specials or if you are looking for regular fare, turkey burger or their margarita pizza will hit the spot. Matt helms the bar and Eric is the manager always ready to great you with a smile. The setting is the old Short Hills train station and it's ambiance only enhances the experience.

I am a little surprised how positive people are about the food here. We went for my birthday and the food couldn't have been more disappointing. Flavors were non-existent. While the burger was well-cooked it was absolutely unmemorable.

I really wanted to fall in love with this place given its location and quirkiness, but after the less than amateur food, we won't be back.

Go if you just want to drink, but find somewhere else to satisfy your appetite.
