Black Forest Inn

Reviewed By RichC250 - Mt Olive NJ

Something for everyone on the menus and the servers do a good job explaining the dishes. The entrees are fantastic, and well executed. Sauerbraten Jagerschnitzel with a variety of sauces/toppings were tender, flavorful, and visually enticing. Red Cabbage and Spatzle were excellent. Most of the dishes were hits and we did have a few misses. The service overall was acceptable, and the younger staff could have used a little more training. It was a busy night for the floor.

Carmine's Pizzeria & Restaurant

Reviewed By Cathrab28

After stopping at two other places during a recent business trip as we looked for a decent place to eat, we stumbled upon Carmine's after calling our hotel for a recommendation.

We were the only people there as it was early and dinner hadn't really started yet, but they didn't mind. The staff was super friendly and the food was great! The warm bread and butter was very welcomed after a long day in the rain.

Excellent!

Ok, so my husband stopped in the night before to waste time before an appointment. He came home with delicious cookies and a full belly. He brought me there the next night and everything was amazing. Maria the owner puts love into everything she makes. It was like being at one of my Italian family members house! We had cappuccino and a gelato for dessert. BYOB, and try Fanucci's. You won't be disappointed !!!

Reviewed By Carol H - Newton, New Jersey

Even though it's a chain restaurant I've always enjoyed Longhorn restaurants. I guess it brings out the cowgirl in me! On this cold and rainy August afternoon I needed to take myself out to lunch. Wow have things changed! The New York Strip steak was cooked perfectly and delicious. However, the chef was overly generous with the salt. The baked potato was tasty also but I'm not sure what they put on top of it. It wasn't sour cream! To my surprise I had to pay extra for the salad that used to come with your meal. The waitress was very pleasant and the restaurant was quite busy which doesn't say much about the choices of eating establishments in Sussex County. All in all it didn't brighten my mood like time in the saddle with my best equine companion does.

Das Creamery

Reviewed By DoctorSidel - Flanders, New Jersey

I've been a fan of Cliff's Ice cream for years, especially their Huckleberry (which they only make in the summer). In this location before Das Creamery was there, there was another ice cream parlor that had so-so ice cream, so I didn't give Das a chance. I went here out of convenience, twice, instead of traveling to Cliffs. It took three visits before I realized how much more flavorful (and addictive) their ice cream is, especially my favorite chocolate: Dalton Abby.

Now, they are a few cents more than Cliffs, but if you want cheap, bland ice cream, you can go to Shop Rite and buy a 1/2 of Turkey Hill for $1.95.

I know when I like a place when a day later I'm salivating for it again. Their malteds are delicious, and their home made ice cream birthday cakes are the best I've ever tasted. What else can I say, except, the workers are VERY FRIENDLY (as compared to the ice cream place that was here before) .. much more friendly than Cliffs.

BTW: They give you a card when you come in. Get it stamped every time you come in, or when you buy multiple dishes and you may find out from the free ice creams you get, this ends up being lower priced than the others ... Das Creamy ... I'm licking my lips now.

Reviewed By LittleItalyNj - Netcong, New Jersey

I've heard all kinds of good things lately about Cambiotti's so I just had to try this place. I'm always in search of different food and I heard their tomato (pizza) pies were unique. Well they are. Different because they have a little tomato sauce and cheese design on them. The pies claim they are thin crust. Not sure how they claim that because mine wasn't too thin. Actually it was just an average crust that was quite bland. The pizza pie in itself wasn't very good. It tasted kind of bland and to be honest, this pizza is below average for the area of NJ it is in. There are tons of pizza places around the area here and this one, unfortunately, isn't one of the good ones. I'll go elsewhere the next time I'm in the mood for pizza.

Bell's Mansion

Reviewed By PaulieWalnuts12 - New York City, New York

We were initially seated in side, in a large room that was like visiting your grandmothers old house. We moved outside, which was 1000 times better. The bar is magnificent as is the outside, the interior rooms need a major overhauling, I don't care if its a mansion it needs help, bad. The food was spot but i don't know if i would go back in the winter only because grandmas house is grandmas house, got the picture?

Reviewed By Lisa Z

My husband and I really enjoyed a night out of dining at Don Jose's. We ordered the molcajete for 2; an entree combination of pork ribs,chicken,shrimp and grilled steak with rice,tomatoes, peppers, onions ,black beans and tortillas. Most enjoyable. Their margaritas are great and I especially enjoyed the authentic atmosphere with colorful tables and chairs. A nice night out.
