The place was mobbed. When we gave our name we were told it would be a 45 minute wait but it ended up being closer to an hour. The service was great. The food was average.

Nice sized tavern/restaurant located in Smithville Village in Galloway, NJ. Food is ok, they've had the same menu for a while, I think it needs updating.
