    1. Terrific place. Great skirt steak, french fries, crab cakes. Excellent Irish coffee depending on the bartender. The girls behind the bar know the ingredients but poor execution. Get it with Tallamore and Due whiskey.

      1. Where in M'side is this place?

        1. Been there many times,....they have a Chef in the kitchen who I heard never attended cooking school, but IMO, can leave a lot of "schooled' Chef's in the 'dust'.......this fellow CAN COOK. !!...
          high quality ingredients, proper presentations, and everything fresh !....much better than the new Grillestone up the road in Scotch plains

          1. We were very disappointed with this place when I went with a small group. I called a few days in advance to make a reservation and was told they don't take them anymore, but to call ahead they evening we were coming and we'd get our name on the list. OK. I called back a couple hours before we were supposed to meet there and was told they DONT take names, you just have to show up. Um, OK. So a couple of us went a little earlier than planned and the hostess said it would be 30 minutes. OK. We kept seeing them seat other smaller groups that arrived after us, leaving them without a big enough table for us. We also saw the hostess on the phone and writing people's names down -- apparently taking reservations. After an HOUR and no updates from the hostess, we just left. Too bad -- some of us had been there before and had a great time. But unless they change that policy, I doubt we'll be going back.
