Cheesequake State Park

Reviewed By Barbara S

I have been coming here for years. When I was a kid it was for the lake and picnic areas. Now I refuse to go to the lake as the people who seem to go are rude, loud and obnoxious. They do have an area to buy food, but it's a bit over priced. Outside of the lake area are great walking, hiking and biking trails. It is quite beautiful and you may even forget you're in NJ for a bit. Try to load the car up as entry during the "on season" is charged per car.

Starland Ballroom

Reviewed By Tds1983

Saw thrice last night, awesome show. This was our second concert at this venue, we like sitting side stage near the restroom (inches away from the bands entering the stage!), get there early this place gets packed. I invested in VIP parking both times, worth every penny for a nice parking spot and cutting the entire line on a cold rainy night! I appreciate the security team for being as tough as they are, you can't take chances today. The bartender was friendly and the drink prices are decent ($12 a beer at the wellmont theater compared to $7 at starland).

Stayed here for a 2 night race event at Englishtown. Rooms with 2 other couples. I made the arrangements so was nervous tnat the rooms would be run down. The rooms are updates and comfortable. They have a refridge and microwave besides the coffee maker. Breakfast was usual hotel - eggs, bacon, cereals and make your own waffles. Desk staff were friendly and welcoming. Will stay here again next year

Sri Guruvayoorappan Temple

Reviewed By Avinash J - Clifton, New Jersey

This is the best temple of all the temples have visited in USA so far. Neatly maintained,lovely atmosphere,peaceful environment.

The alankaram from all the God&Godesses was so adorable. ..so spritual ,above all prasadam was served in a humble and neat manner. ..the organization was so polite.

the arrangements during the Lord Venkateshwara Swamy kalyanam is really fantastic , i personally felt as if as was there in tirupati (India), they offered Tirupati ladoo etc, the way of receiving the people by the temple volunteers in the extreme cold climate is extraordinary.

Long Live Paintball

Reviewed By tkas - tkas

The asset to this place, which makes it shine above the others is the staff.

Shaun and Robert particularly stood out as super customer service oriented individuals. We went the Saturday after Christmas, a day they didn't expect to be nearly sixty degrees and crowded. Because much of the staff had been given the day off, these two men had to work extra hard, and their efforts paid off. I didn't notice a shortness of staff at all, and hours after I had paid, Shaun still referred to me by my name when he saw me, and Robert sought me out to ask if my boys were having fun.
We went to this place, which is farther from my home than another paintball place, because we purchased a Groupon deal. We did still have to pay for coveralls, tax, and a box of additional paintballs (my choice to purchase), so the entire day for two teenage boys ended up costing around $100, but there was no time limit, and if they hadn't been worn down by their fierce battles by 3:00, they could've stayed and played all day.
We will definitely return, not because of the cost, or because the place is any better than other paintball establishments, but because the workers were courteous, considerate, and really care about their customers.

Set my oldest cheese record with their 8 year old Canadian cheddar. This place has all things eatable from produce to fully cooked or baked items. Reasonable priced local produce and excellent assortment of coffees, cheese, candy, syrups, honey, etc. They even have a smoothie bar, ice cream bar, desert bar and snack bar. I had a panini with ham, Brie, Granny Smith apple slice & apple butter- it was fantastic.

Don’t come....it’s too nice and special and crowds will ruin it! The 1890s Longstreet Farm anchors one end with a great chance to see an authentic working farm from a century ago. Fit trails, picnic areas, meadows and playgrounds throughout. Beautiful settings everywhere. Really well maintained and always serene.

Monmouth Battlefield Park

Reviewed By hotrocks1962

Problem is, nothing else seems to have been touched either. Such an important battlefield deserves better treatment from New Jersey. Gift shop and museum store opened 3 hours a week, 1 staff person on hand to answer questions, and the feeling that this is a forgotten piece of history due to negligence. Total shame. Now I know why I was the only person there.

i do not use those words too often in my reviews but wow! i never expected the place to be that good! food, atmosphere, and staff were just top, top notch-- especially christine. very friendly, cozy, yet professional. service was impeccable. we sat on the chef's counter and watched as they masterfully prepared and plated their creations. i tries the eggplant ravioli and creamed cheese chard. evrything else i tasted from others was simply amazing. just look at my pictures. the duck breast was the best i have had in years. this is a farm to table place and of course everything was freshly prepped. the heirloom bread and home made butter are a must. you wont be disappointed. oh i will be back.

AMC Starplex Brunswick Square 13

Reviewed By AlmostFiftyStates - NJ

This is a great theater, even though it's gone through several managements in the last few years. You can't beat being able to book your seat in advance (although warning: don't wait until the last minute or you'll find yourself with no availability), and you can find good deals on the popcorn as well. Thumbs up!
