Blue Monkey

Reviewed By Lisa E - Collingswood, New Jersey

From the outside of this old, gorgeous brick building you may anticipate an inviting interior. Entering from the front of the building is confounding as you are directed to use the "other door", which apparently means the adjacent door. No warm or welcoming greeting. A coat rack, a few booths...oh, there's the bar. So, it's a bar. With a few seats surrounding the bar. Perhaps just close off the front door. Then you would enter at the side and walk directly into a semi-welcoming space. Our server was very good. Nothing wrong with the beer. Or the menu. It's pleasant but not a destination. It has the potential to be someplace special but misses the mark.

Maple Shade Custard Stand

Reviewed By rachmariefitz - Pennsauken, New Jersey

The Custard Stand is a great place to go for a sweet treat. My family has been going here for years and we have yet to be disappointed. The employees are all very friendly and super helpful.
The ice cream is delicious and you can get it in a variety of ways from the classic cone to a flurry mixed with candy and even milkshakes. There really is something for everyone.

The Capital Grille

We cordially invite you to set aside the preconceived notion that urbane dining requires an urban setting. Dry Aged Steak au Poivre and Citrus Glazed Salmon are equally at-home in Camden County as Philadelphia. And could 5,000 bottles of world-class wine hope for a more fitting home than a place called Cherry Hill? Culinary connoisseurs, The Capital Grille has arrived in suburbia.

Reviewed By Sherstur - New Jersey

We chose this restaurant for special steak dinners for two family celebrations. Each of our four different steak dinners were cooked perfectly and tasted delicious. Appetizers and sides were wonderful as was complementary dessert for celebrants. Jason's service was superb. We appreciated his sense of humor. Pricey but worth it.

Kitchen Consigliere Cafe

Informal BYOB Italian eatery where the emphasis is on the traditional homestyle Italian cooking. Managed by Angelo Lutz, Philly's original Kitchen Consigliere, and located in Collingswood, NJ

Reviewed By SoPhillytraveler

Everyone is friendly and inviting...but Tiffany is my favorite. You would think she is a member of the family with the way she interacts with you and your table. Everything on the menu is wonderful. Each dish better than the next. Make sure to listen to the specials. No matter what you choose you will NOT be disappointed. It's an old school restaurant with a modern twist with old school values and top notch staff. You will not be able to clean your plate, as the portions are huge. Don't miss the opportunity to eat hear. If it is crowded, which it is often, because, yes it is that good, it can be a bit loud/noisy, but this is typical of old style Italian culture. Just like Sunday dinner at home growing up.

The Station Coffee

Reviewed By Lovelake

My bff and I meet once a month for coffee and we like to try different places. The Station is small and cozy with plenty of seating inside (including a little alcove with a love seat, coffee table and chair) and cafe tables outside. The coffee is adequate with specialty drinks available. They offer light breakfast items and baked goods. We left before the live music started at 11am (Saturday morning) but they sounded pretty good as they warmed up. Definitely a great place for a leisurely meeting with an old friend. Merchantville also has a farmer’s market nearby in the spring and summer months

I've been going here for over 10 years now, since I used to work across the street. The service is always great and so is the food! My favorite dish is the chicken Portofino - delish!! And also their garlic sticks, served hot or cold are really good. Oh and their buffalo wings... yum! I could go on and on - just give it a try, you really can't go wrong.

Seasons 52

Reviewed By BeakerTX - San Antonio, TX

I ate here with a large group during a brief visit to the area. Service was consistently good. Plenty of menu selections. The appetizers were ok.....good, but nothing exceptional. I got one of the fish dishes as a main course. I did ask beforehand if the fish was fresh, and was honestly told it was frozen fresh. I decided to give it a try, which was a mistake. The sauce, cook, and sides were good. The fish was terrible. Very fishy and not fresh tasting at all. Big let down. Given the price, ambiance, service, and food, this is a decent average place. It's a stretch to call it very good. No plans to visit this chain again.

Il Fiore

Reviewed By John O - Newtown Square

Lovely little restaurant with too many seats. Could not get decent space to position my chair - was always looking out for wait staff going by. Our table should never had been set up.
Menu read really well, all the right dishes with average flavor. Being a BYOB and charging very reasonable prices makes a decent place to go to. Choose your seat carefully - don't get stuck in the middle of the restaurant.

Park Place Cafe & Restaurant

Reviewed By skipthelightfandango - New Jersey

If you have not been to this restaurant please go! It is a BYOB, the food is not just good, it is mind blowing. There is no comparison to any other restaurant, this one stands alone. The chef is amazing. Our first visit we learned he makes EVERYTHING! We had Pig face pesto octopus which was one of my favorite dishes in the end. Raw Red American Snapper with Rainier Cherries! Yes Cherries named after Mount Rainier the combination was an amazing taste! Rabbit Lasagna, venison chocolate bolognese, a scallop dish, bread (yes he even made that) homemade ice cream which was Belgium chocolate and a cherry vanilla. Homemade Limoncello which was the best I have ever tasted! We are going back very soon. The place is very small so I really hate telling you how good it is. Hope I can get a reservation when I call next.

Sagami

Reviewed By gtownjewel - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

My son chose the restaurant, having never eaten there before. The sushi menu was very limited and lacked imagination. The fish was fresh and tasty. The soft shell crab appetizer (a special) was very tasty. We were a group of 9 and the waitresses were very attentive and friendly.
