Molly Maguires Irish Pub and Restaurant

Reviewed By Susan F - Edison, New Jersey

We reserved the main diningroom for my husband's 65th birthday and retirement. Great food and music as well as a gracious host and servers. They helped with balloons as well as drinks and food and served the birthday cake. They also provided gluten free dishes for some of our guests who needed that

Paper Mill Playhouse

Reviewed By JoelNunez1555 - Springfield, New Jersey

Casts and production values are topnotch. I've seen The Bodyguard, The Producers, and Mary Poppins here and I was floored by how good the shows were. Hit shows get good crowds so book early. Parking is easy, and the theater is close to the train station.

Built in 1925 this theater has been restored. Fantastic! Large open space. Terrific ambience. As you walk in the main entrance take your time and look around. Take in your surroundings and imagine yourself back in time. How it must have been an excitement to be entertained in such luxury.

Bowcraft Amusement Park

Reviewed By Amusementparkguy - Pataskala, Ohio

This is a little gem amongst some of the larger amusement parks in the area. There are mainly classic rides here for children and their parents. This is more geared to families with younger children, under the age of 10. The grounds were clean, and the employees were friendly. I have heard rumors that this will be the last year for the park as land is more valuable than the park itself. I spoke with a manager of the park, and he said that is likely the case. A friend found some of their rides listed for sale, so it seems as if this quiet treasure will not be with us after this season. If you have never been here, this might be your last chance.

Feltville Historic District

Reviewed By Michael A - New Providence, New Jersey

When in town, whether Berkeley heights, new providence, mountain side, or anywhere in area...I highly recommend coming here, weather permitting. A great hike throughout watchung reservation, and then you have this " deserted " village ...as advertised. Wonder off the beaten path and discover revolution dated grave sites and bits of history that seems like a bonus story to a great walk. My kids were a little bored at times, but kept interested 80 percent of the walk. A great day

Blackthorn Kenilworth

Reviewed By alish2006 - New York City, New York

Been to the Blackthorn about 10 times. The bartenders are nice and chatty and the husband loves the beer and sports. They have overseas matches in the morning on weekends and get a nice crowd considering it could be 9am.

The large patio is great in good weather and has a fun, lively crowd. We have eaten many appetizers and the slider burgers were very good. They have Irish music on Sundays and it's fun to join in sometimes.

Just Bead Yourself

Reviewed By NJsharon - Flemington, New Jersey

Amazing place hidden away that should get more exposure!
I visited here with my 12yr old daughter to take the 'Tree of Life' class. The instructor was wonderful, very friendly and extremely patient with us. She walked us through step by step letting us go at our own pace, just checking in if we needed any help, but we did everything ourselves (unless we asked for a little help).
The finished product was really so pretty. Both mine & my daughters looked so different, even though it was the same project. But it was personalized by us, for us, so that was great!
We definitely hope to come back to do more projects!
