We were seated quickly and served drinks right away. The food was served fairly quickly and was delicious. Our server, Daniel was very attentive. Prime rib is a great bargain. We will be back.

Food was very good. We were 7 people and we all enjoyed. Usually the noise level is awful but we were in back room which was much quieter.

This place is usually good, BUT, I was there twice last week. The first time the waitress spilled a glass of water all over the table and on some of our fries.. She brought napkins. Did not even offer a free drink or dessert. The second time I ordered a wrap with no lettuce or tomato. It was filled with tomato. I pulled them out because I didn't have time to wait for a new one, my group was in a hurry. Disappointing experiences.

Happy hour menu was very misleading. Happy hour menu lists all domestic beers as happy hour pricing but when attempted to order they only allowed Miller and Coors as options. Server stated that we must have recieved outdated menus but all menus across the entire restaurant stated all domestic beer as happy hour. When food arrived everything was very under seasoned and fries were very under cooked and almost cold. We waited for a long time to receive our waters after we decided not to order drinks because of their bait and switch type tactics. Over all a disappointment. We had been excited to try this place out but will never be returning.

I am gluten-free, and the menu didn't have too many choices for me, but I ordered one of the fish specials and the waiter swapped out the breaded-and-fried vegetable for something plainer that I could handle. Everything was cooked very well and delicious. My friend had the meatloaf, which she also enjoyed very much.

Dined with the kids on Tuesday BOGO burger night. Server was very personable and attentive. Food was quite slow coming out on a night when there were very few in the place. However everything was hot and tasty which made the wait acceptable. Good for a casual bite.

How do you screw up a cheddar cheese burger. We ordered two of them medium well. When they finally came out it was medium rare. The waitress took the burgers back into the kitchen and it stead of giving us two new ones they put the undercooked burgets back on the grill. BTW we did cut the burgers in half so they put food that we cut back on the grill with other patrons food. Also when we finally got our reheated burgers the buns were ice cold and stale. The did try to compisate us with free dessert and coffee but who wants that since they can't cook a burger correctly. This place with Moores are going down hill quickly if they don't figure out what they're doing in the kitchen. Tommy's in Freehold maybe pricey but there food is always delicious and on point.

The service was terrible. My mother’s 74 birthday and she spills her drink after a sip and the waiter is nowhere to be found. Had to clean the table ourselves. When i was able to track down the waiter he was told what happened. He brought a replacement drink but charged us for the original anyway. Could not be found most of the night when we needed more drinks and had to go to the bar to get our own. Food was ok but took a very long time to come (especially the appetizers). Was not in a rush so that was ok, but the terrible service put a damper on what could have been a much better night.

Prime rib was definitely cooked at one time and microwaved before coming to the table.

The crab sandwich special - they should be ashamed - there wasn't an ounce of crab meat on the skimpy and tough crusted crab.

Service was good.

Would recommend for burgers. Our group ordered 4 prime ribs but they only had regular and 3 end cuts left. One regular came out with half of it being a blob of fat. I must say the manager did the right thing and took it off the bill. Our other meals were ok, nothing great. I’ve been here before and had better food. Our waitress, Lara, was very nice and attentive.

The waitress seemed inexperienced. She completely forgot my husband French Onion soup. We had to remind her and then it was too late. We all had the Sunday Special of prime rib. I ordered mine medium rare and it was bloody and dripping fat.

A suggestion would be to describe the level of how you want it cooked.

This place is always busy for good reason... there's no place that delivers an experience like they do in the general area... an excellent bar, friendly service, some excellent chow, tons of TVs for sporting events... in the football season they have every game! Was great that we could watch the Duke game in the NCAA tourney while enjoying some chow. They also have an aggressive happy hour that seems to draw a crowd.

I love the burgers here... excellent ground beef and grilled perfectly. The chili we tried was great, quesadilla just ok, wings pretty good, chicken fingers very good.

Hanna, our waitress, was excellent... fast, friendly and efficient.

It was a Friday night on St Patrick’s Day weekend so we expected the place to be jumping and loud. The food, as always, was excellent. I don’t know who the chef is but this is not ordinary pub food. Bakers is our “go to” place!

We went for New Years and was pleasantly surprised. The place was fairly empty. We had a very pleasant waiter. Many of the apps are $5-6 and delicious. We shared margarita pizza which had coal fired flavor and coconut shrimp which was crispy and moist. Afterwards, my husband ordered a steak salad and I had a crock of French onion soup. Again,both were delicious. A few minutes before midnight the hostess handed out party hats, tiaras, noise blowers and then champagne. We rang in the New Year with a toast and with others in the restaurant. We topped off the night with a warm brownie and vanilla ice cream. This was a very pleasant dining experience and would recommend it highly!
