What a fun place, nice people good food adult company music . It was busy so we went early for dinner and stayed for music and cocktails. About time Staten Islands North Shore had a place for Adults to go.
I thank the last writer for his review I feel young when I'm there, my date and I are 60 plus
Mac and Cheese!!! Burgers!!! Yumminesss Galore!!!!!! Go there, kid friendly and amazing drinks!
To the unhappy soul who wrote the last review..get a life...I agree with the fact that the restaurant is kid friendly...food is good...my children had a good meal and were kept busy by coloring supplied by restaurant....and we don't drink...sorry
You know a place is horrible when you get meat that is cut on the grain and not against it what a discrace to food everywhere..their menu is absurd!pick a cuisine and stick with it...the catering menu is a world tour of cuisines...master one before you take on all of them! Change or die is the case here....Bumbling idiot managers etc...
My hat is off to this unique restaurant...nothing but kudos for the place...good home cooked meals, fun cocktails and wonderful decor..been there 3 times and alway a good meal, nice people nyc on staten island
TO ALL TRY THIS PLACE...NEW MENU..COMFORT FOOD...NICE
Went with a group of friends waited over an hour for a table meanwhile they were sitting other people ahead of us. The food was not great. The turkey chili app was good and the buffalo spring rolls were ok. We all ordered burgers they were all raw and not cooked as asked. We did not send them back or order new food because I don't like to complain and have them cook more food for me. They did buy us a round of drinks. I will not be going back.
Went Monday, 4-11-11 with 3 friends. We were seated right away, in fact, we were the only ones there. It was 80 degrees outside and their windows were open instead of turning on the AC. The smoke from the outside drinkers blew inside. Very annoying. Wasn't impressed by the menu. The food was not good. The crab cakes were "pan seared" burnt. The risotto was unseasoned and bland. The rib eye steak was charred and a glob of butter thrown on top, I guess to add some moisture to the dry steak. Will not go back. Would not recommend.
I want to change this review in the near future by trying PJ's again. But I have to comment on the trip in. I understand they are new to the business but somethings are easy. Like paying attention to simple request for a beer at a near empty bar. We both had one item... fish and chips... THE WORST EVER. The fish was old and really inedible. The place is open maybe a week. The menu says it was cod but it tasted like blue fish and had the grey matter in it. And for the first time ever... it was potato chips with the fish not fries, but they were the best part of the meal. The place is nice but seems like they are trying too hard.
The place looked nice but the food was not. I didn't hear anything good from friends but figured I would see for myself. I am really not picky at all but the potato chips which come with almost everything were soaked with oil as if they came out of fryer onto plate, as if they were never drained. I had the sweet potato and my date had regular and they both were the same. I would go back for drinks only....never again for the food. It's ashame that they're just starting out and it's bad. Usually at first a restaurant is good then it goes down hill. Not usually bad from the start. I have had better food at Applebee's.
I went to the restaurant at 5:30 with two small children. I waited 50 minutes for pot stickers and sweet potato fries. My kids were starving as it was 6:20 when they brought out the chips and then i waited for the pot stickers. Finally my kids burgers came out rare. How can you cook meat rare for children? I had to send it back. It gets better the people who sat next to us bought us a drink and the waiter brought out the drink while I had a full glass of wine so when I drank the second glass it was so warm. Then our dinner came out i asked for a burger medium. It was so rare I could not eat it so like my children's meal I sent it back. I asked for the owner I explained to her and she didn't even apologize. She just said the fries take a long time. WAs she serious sweet potato fires should take 50 minutes? Is that a joke? She didn't even offer a free scoop of ice cream. I live in walking distance and I would never walk back. Shame on you.
I don't know why everyone is saying their meals were that bad. Myself and some friends went to eat dinner over the weekend and I thought the food was pretty good. They have a limited menu but they we felt everything on their was delicious. Their appetizer's were very very good we ordered 1 of everything, actually so good, we would go back just for drinks and picky foods. They had a very big selection of Sangria's to choose from which it made it interesting. As for the dinners, we were satisfied for what we ordered. We had the burghers cooked perfect to what we specified, ribs and also a special for that night, roasted chicken. Everyone in our party liked the taste and the only negative feed back was the ribs only came out with 6 most places offer 10 - 12 ribs. Also, the desserts were to knock your socks off !!!! We had the chocolate cake delicious, giant cookie chip cake also delicious and the fresh strawberry shortcake our favorite. Everyone who said the food was bad or not served correctly, try it again. They are new, so maybe they were still trying to wrinkle out the small details. We would definitely go back again !!!!! I wish them the best of luck !!!
I love Pepper Jack. Love the style of the place, The Drinks are delicious and so far I have only had appetizers but they were very good!
The Restaurant was good , food and crazy drink menu was wonderful, people who complain about parking have never eaten out much..try manhatten or brooklyn would go back again...fun spot with music on weekends
Ok....TERRIBLE!! So disappointed....its a shame because i know one of the owners owns The Bridge Tavern and have always liked the food and friendly service there....but i dont know what happened at this place...food is bad, and service is worse!! Will not go back...purely a hang out for rowdy young drinkers!!
Love the sangria selections and that you can get a bottle of it!! Very creative place with great food!! Went with some girlfriends for sangria and appetizers and had a great night!! The buffalo rolls and bbq chicken wings were so yummy!!
Went there for dinner last night- service was outstanding- don't recall the waitress' name- but she was wonderful. the prime rib sunday special was great- came out a perfect medium as ordered, served with a baked potato and roasted veggies carrots. all very delicious. the menu is a bit different- unique combinations, which may not appeal to everyone. the atomosphere was really nice- the renovations were very well done. can't wait to go back!!
Ate there last nite with my family, monday nites great for that had family style past, salad great garlic bread and a bottle of wine great idea, good food and great surroundings. the owner was on had what a nice person...will be back Follow Up: What a different type of restaurant...felt like i was in the City...food good, crazy drinks and polite staff
The restaurant was busy...the owner came over and bought us a drink..new look..plenty of space...felt like a manhattan restaurant...during the week not as crazy as friday and sat
It has a nice atmosphere, food takes way too long to come out for less than adequate taste
The atmosphere of the place is really nice restuarant very cozy the food is terrible
