Entertaining for the adults, 9yo and 14yo boys really enjoyed it and want to know when we can go again. Amazingly they can serve 1/2 roasted chickens to a crowd of 1,000 and have it be crispy, succulent and piping hot.

Meadowlands Museum

Reviewed By mtngirl38 - Canada

The highlight for my son was the rocks that glow in the blue light, that was worth the visit in itself. I never knew New Jersey was so full of rocks like this! There are also many displays about local artifacts, mostly from the European settlement of farms in the local area and how the Europeans lived in the area when they first arrived. The museum is in an old home. It's not a giant place, but it is worth a short visit, especially if you are from the local area or are interested in these neat rocks!

Redd's Bar and Restaurant

Reviewed By Newarker_Rickydee - Warren, New Jersey

Sampler appetizer was barely edible but and a burger was burnt the first time and not really edible even the second time (props for trying a second time). Chips also were some of the worst ever experienced. Maybe stick with only drinks and skip the food but only if you are parking here, otherwise eat somewhere else. Stadium food is actually better!

Parking/shuttle was a decent alternative to parking at Metlife stadium and beat some of the traffic mess.
