Was here for the first time and let me tell ya…if you have Margo as a server you’ll have a great experience. She provided us with suggestions on apps, dinner and drinks. Everything we had was absolutely amazing. Having recently moved to the area I will become a regular here and request Margo every single time! You won’t be disappointed!

The food here incredibly delicious and made with the freshest and top quality ingredients. The service, we were here for the first time a month ago and our server Justine not only remembered us she remembered what we drank. Friendly, professional and very knowledgeable regarding the menu. The atmosphere, I read one of the reviewers say, “out dated.” Being a lover of antiques, I appreciate the beauty and craftsmanship of the stunning elements within this establishment. So if your tired of the cookie cutter dining experience and would love a menu that does not include prime rib and chicken Marsala, take a trip to Sparta and have a real dining experience.

The meal was just ok, I did not enjoy my meal as much as I thought, same comment made by wife with her meal. We opted not to take leftovers with us. The waiter we had was very good, as he was very attentive.

A group of coworkers and I went here for lunch and it was my first time dining here. I must say that the food, atmosphere and service was incredible! I ordered the bison burger with havarti cheese, which was a special that day and it was wonderful! The burger was cooked perfectly and was quite large, allowing me to take half of it home for my boyfriend to try. He loved it! The atmosphere was beautiful with called ceilings. My coworkers all loved their dishes as well. I will definitely be returning in the future.

Always a good meal. Gourmet without being in your face about it, plus great steaks/fish/chops. Also items with a German cuisine bent. Added: the menu manages to stay familiar but make interesting twists and additions. The meal continues to be first rate, the drinks top notch. As expected, a busy place at prime time, but worth the effort.

Everything here is and was 10/10! We came to eat here about 6 months before our wedding when we were looking for rehearsal dinner venues. The food was absolutely outstanding, the service was fantastic, and the whole restaurant has a wonderful vibe. We immediately went home and booked our rehearsal dinner with them. Sue was wonderful to work with and super easy to get a hold of. The dinner was amazing and the service was A+! Our guests still talk about the amazing chicken schnitzel and salmon! We can't wait to come back up to Sparta and eat here again 🙂

Wow, what cool place in Sparta, NJ.I’ve seen this place advertised (I am always looking and following eateries and such) but never was in the area at the right time (50 min. from home) We happened there on this past Sunday, needed a quick lunch for 4, it looked very busy.Well, Johnathan welcomed us with open arms and got us seated immediately!, he made us feel like family, mind you our first time there! He informed us of their Wood fired grill which peaked my interest!Our waiter sorry for not remembering his name, a young fella who had impeccable professionalism. He greeted the table with water, asked about drinks etc., came back for Apps. we got the chicken and chorizo nachos, what an awesome combo, we cleaned the plate.On to entrees, The ladies ordered the Black Pepper Pappardelle Bolognese, a little spice but hints of sweetness in a dark rich sauce (Gravy, if NJ Italian) and Topped with Burrata cheese. A, BYO Burger Bacon AM cheese LTO, cooked to perfection with a nice wood fire char.I did the 1/2 order of Blackened Salmon Tacos, the accompaniment of Black Bean relish, Poblano slaw and rice was perfect, the wood fire on the Salmon added amazing flavor.Throughout the meal our waiter was spot on, knowing we were pressed for time.Oh the atmosphere was great, a very cool old world charm, upscale causal.Highly recommended!

First time coming here for dinner with the family to celebrate my birthday on St. Patrick’s day! Food was excellent. My fiancé is born and raised British and she absolutely loved the bangers and mash! The chicken schnitzel was delicious! Atmosphere inside was fun and relaxing. Bag pipe player walking around. Manager came over twice and checked on us! Thank you for a great meal!

The meal was excellent and the service was great. We got an appetizer and dessert which we typically won't do when we go out, but we couldn't resist. There's a few different areas within the restaurant to sit as well as bar seating and outdoor space when the weather permits.

A really great spot. The fish dishes are outstanding and desserts are delightful. The half-baked s'mores is an absolute must try. The staff is always very friendly and accommodating and makes you feel like a regular even if it's your first time. It's a can't miss experience.

Went on a Sunday right when they opened. There was a baby shower going on so we decided to sit outside. Atmosphere was good, service was quick. Drinks were tasty and beer was cold. The 4 of us went the cheaper route and all got burgers. All the burgers were cooked perfectly and came with fresh cut fries. 1 of our party got dessert and she said it was amazing. 4 people, 240 bucks including a 20% tip, not bad at all. Will venture back for burgers or to try something else. Overall experience very good. The boardwalk is also a stones throw away to work off a filling meal.

This is one of my favourite spots as it never let's me down. The pork chop is a must have! If you are looking for fun cocktails that range from sweet to sophisticated, this is a great place to try.
The food was so delicious!! Grilled shrimp appetizer... Swoon! We went for the Bubba J chicken sandwich made the taste buds happy and the Schnitzel will make you weep. I made the mistake of only getting the half order. 🤭 The bartenders are super sweet and really take care of ya.
