We were traveling on Rt 80 and was looking for a place to stop. Found The Governor's Public on line and decided to try it out. We are so happy we did. Our waitress, Taylor, was sweet, friendly, and attentive. I ordered the chicken pot pie and my husband ordered bean soup and a salad. We both were very impressed... More

Went with our granddaughter and friend during parents week end. I had the special-- an inedible breaded veal cutlet. Others thought their food was tasty-- Service was rushed-- we were in and out quickly. Will Not return.

The restaurant was fairly busy, so our wait time was longer than expected, but our waitress was fantastic. I had the buffalo chicken sandwich and fries. The fries were seasoned well, but the buffalo sauce of the... More

Driving back from Philadelphia, delicious and generous onion soup and sandwiches. One sandwich was big enough for 2 meals. Had to get pumpkin torte to go.

My wife and I had dinner here. We both had fish sandwiches with fries. Their fish sandwiches are gigantic. The fish was hanging out of the roll. You don't get fish sandwiches this good at a lot of restaurants, so I highly recommend them. The service was very good also. Their desert menu had some very good deserts that evening.... More

We stopped at The Governor's Pub while traveling on I-80 East. This restaurant was definitely worth the slight detour. The decor is tasteful with a unique theme. Very clean bathrooms and eating areas. Both indoor and outdoor dining options are available. The extensive menu is sure to please and palate. I chose the broiled crab cake sandwich with fresh cut...

We loved our meals here, quick service and a very interesting array of dishes are available. Being vegetarian it's nice to find places that are accomodating.

Our hosts at Our Fair Lady recommended the Governor's Pub which we thoroughly enjoyed. We ate out on the deck which was lit up and very cozy. I had their porcupine meatballs which were not only unusual, but delicious. I also enjoyed one of their specialty drinks, Fun on the beach. Yum. Would definitely recommend the Governor's Pub.
