OK for burgers etc but don’t order fish of any kind. The grilled tuna I ordered was obviously defrosted in a microwave and dropped on a grill which was barely hot enough to leave faint grill marks much less sear the fish properly. It came as a pile of pink mush with the taste of old fish. My wife’s Scampi was totally lacking in flavor. Since they don’t brew anything there I don’t understand how they call themselves a brewhouse.

    I was just there last week and had the 'brick-oven style' pizza and person i was with had the steak and we both thought it was good. In an area where there are very little choose from I'll be back. I agree about the brewhouse, i wish they brewed their own beer.

      NJ's had a couple of these sorts of places, riding on the wave of popularity of craft beer and local brewpubs (a movement in which the state still lags). There was a short lived place on Rt. 130 in Hamilton called "The Cellar Lounge And Microbrewery @ The Hamilton Manor" a few years ago, and a pretty well respect multi-tap bar in Wildwood called "Goodnight Irene's Brew Pub". http://www.goodnightirenes.com/

      Both merely bars, with no brewer's license or brewing done on premise.

        I was here a few months ago and met the owner. He was waiting for his brew equipment to get set up, so it'll just be a matter of time before it's a true "brewhouse". As for the food, I just had a pizza and thought it was good. As a previous poster said, this area lacks any decent restaurants, especially those with craft beer, so I hope this one succeeds!
