I love going here for Sunday Brunch. What a spread - whatever you're in the mood for: omelets, carving station, hot food, salads, seafood, desserts. I recommend the smoked salmon, seafood salad. Service is great. Waitstaff is pleasant. Overall a nice place for any gathering.

Rod's and the GKs Red Dog Saloon offer great food and atmosphere. We have eaten here many times and are always happy when we can return. Great steaks and seafood, with more casual food in the Red Dog Saloon.

Description
Welcome to New Jersey's Legendary Steak House

Rod's Steak & Seafood Grille, an area landmark and winner of New Jersey Monthly's 'Best Steakhouse' award, offers lunch and dinner daily as well as the finest Sunday Brunch in New Jersey.

The restaurant's new design, rich wood paneling and highly polished brass, lends a classic elegance to the sophisticated atmosphere. For an intimate and unique experience, dinner aboard the private Parlour Cars is sure to be remembered. Formerly the private domain of the rich and famous, these beautifully refurbished, turn of the century railway cars are exquisitely complimented by the haute cuisine of Rod's esteemed Executive Chef.
