More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Dining options: Breakfast, After-hours, Reservations
Description: The menu includes a “La Frieda” blend specialty burger which is a naturally raised and hormone free graded USDA Choice Prime beef. We have a large selection of tapas appetizers, salads and “Jersey Fresh” locally grown foods including our homemade ketchup which is made from Jersey Fresh tomatoes and is a favorite to our locals. The drink selection is extensive with 20 craft beers on tap from all over the country, great wines by the glass and only fresh ingredients for all cocktails. For the young at heart, we have milkshakes, Boylan’s soda floats and Jersey shore fries. A fantastic Sunday Brunch is served from 11:30 am every Sunday. Available for private and semi-private parties.

After long days in the office, who wants to search for a place to eat. I stayed in the Grand Summit 4 nights and dined here 4 times, 2 dinners and 2 breakfasts. The breakfast is basic but good. Dinner was pleasant surprise, good soups, fast service, some variety to the menu.

I have been to the Hat Tavern a few times and it never disappoints so I thought that I would add an updated review. The Sunday brunch buffet is always a standout. My in-laws' flight was cancelled due to the recent storm and their first thought was great- now we can go for brunch. There is a nice selection of fish, salads, fruit, cheese and a good omlett station.

Not happy. I sat down and ordered lunch. Maybe 5 other customers in restaurant. Two large parties arrived 10 minutes after I ordered. Now it’s 25 minutes since I ordered. Still waiting for my sandwich. Next time I’ll just walk into town I guess. Losing faith in this place rapidly.

Great burgers. And nice selection of beer, even though I was served the wrong one. We also had breakfast the next morning, included in our stay. It was ok.
