I-78 food

We're meeting friends along I-78 this weekend and were hoping to find a decent place to eat. We're coming from NJ, they're coming from Allentown. Our main requirement is that the place have a good beer selection. Any suggestions? Thanks!

  1. I was thinking to ask the same question, because I sometimes go to the Sands in Bethlehem and come home on 78 and haven't found any place that good. I wasn't impressed with the Clinton Station Diner.

    1. In Clinton, The Clinton House.

      1. The Spain Inn 2. I've only been to this location 2 times however I've been going to the original Spain Inn for over 20 years. Solid Portuguese food.

        1. Where exactly is your idea of the meeting point...does it have to be equitable in distance traveled...or is food and beer the most important consideration.

          Summit, Berkeley Heights and New Providence have some nice restaurants. Maybe the Trap Rock Brewery fits your bill.

          1. I've never been disappointed with the food at the Fox & Hound whenever I'm out in Annandale (while it is on Rte 22, it's just off the nexus of where 78 & 22 intersect).

            Here's a link to their beerz....

              I missed the main requirement of beer selection! Ok listen to JJ Fox and Hound has a good beer selection and pretty good wings!

              JJ I've only been to the Menlo Park location is this one similar with the TV's and pool tables etc?

                Not really JV. It's a full deal resto in an old restored stagecoach inn.... more on the F&H can be found on their website.

                Good food, and this is a place to have in your backpocket should you spend a day out in that area of Hunterdon County when the weather's better. It's not the best around, just solid food, nice place (especially the outdoor dining area with bar)
