This is a great local place. The owner is 3rd generation and a great guy. The food is simple but delicious. Big juicy burgers! If you are looking for small portions and a gourmet menu don't look to The Park. But if you want a local place with a great burger or sandwiches and the warmth of a fireplace on... More

A nice hole in the wall. Very limited menu, bartender does double duty. Burger I felt was very pricey.Wanted burger well done, was dried out. Lettuce, tomato, etc all extra charge. Nice selection draft beer very affordable. They do not take credit cards. 4 tvs at the bar.

We went on a recommendation from a friend and we weren't disappointed. The bartender is also the cook so be prepared to wait. Have a beer (or mixed drink) and listen to the jukebox. The bartender (cook) was friendly. We ordered the burgers and went disappointed. The corned beef on rye was excellent. The beer was ice cold and there... More

Went there for the first time, but it won't be the last ! Thoroughly enjoyed sitting at the vintage bar, sipping on pints of draft beer, chomping down a delicious burger with crispy fries. And then ! Dancing to the JukeBox ! From the outside, it doesn't look like much -- but don't let the exterior fool you ! Inside... More

Exactly what a tavern should be. The perfect place. Best Guinness. Best Burger in the State of NJ, I don't care what the Star-Ledger or NJ.Com have to say about anyplace else. No sign outside. Hard to park sometimes. The neighborhood can be sketchy, especially a block or two away, but there is usually at least one or 2 cops... More

Honest and plain. The burgers (and other menu items) are prepared by the bartender and are very good. Nice little patio space out back in the summer, open fire in the winter. Great jukebox!

Hole in the wall that makes you feel at home. Dark, comfortable and friendly. Fireplace, great outside patio and a mean burger. No sign and dingy looking outside, but that just adds to the mystique. Great spot, don't let the neighborhood deter you, cop and firemen patrons keep out the RifRaf. If you live downtown, you must make the trek... More

We spent the post game day there for a visit ...visiting old friends and enjoying the quaint old atmosphere. Great bartender. Menu is short but food was great pub food. The drinks were cold and you still had money in your pocket when you left!
