Although it is owned by the same owners as the Famished Frog in Morristown, it is totally different. While it appears extremely inviting, first timers are made to feel uncomfortable. As welcoming as the people at the Famished Frog are, this bartender was the exact...More

First time doing a review, I have been here numerous times and it never disappoints. The employees I've encountered are always in great disposition. Stopped in for a quick bite excellent Guinness French Onion Soup and Carnival Calamari. Looking forward to going back soon.
