Horrible Lunch! – I went there with my girlfriend hoping to grab a quick lunch at the bar on a Sunday afternoon. The two bartenders were clueless and the food was unedible. It took 35 minutes to get a cup of chowder and a crab sandwich. The place was not busy at all. The chowder came out with this thick skin on the top like it had sat under a heat lamp for an hour. The "crab" sandwich was not described well on the menu and came out as a greasy fried crab cake slapped in between a hamburger bun. My girlfriend took one bite and pulled a bone from her mouth. At that point we had lost our appetite and left. The bartenders didn't even ask us how things were when we paid the check even though left the food barely touched. Absolutely disgusting.
came here for a drink and food, wasn't able to get either – We came in for lunch, but ended up leaving in frustration. When we came in, the restaurant was not busy. It took them 10 minutes to take our order and then notify us they were out of the beer we ordered. We order another beer... and 10 minutes later, we still had not gotten our beers... We decided the bloody mary's sounded good instead, but another 10 minutes later they came back and told us they still had not been able to find the bloody mary mix.. but that they would find it. In this time period, we still never order our food (thankfully). We decided to cut our losses. I have to admit, the menu looked good and I was disappointed that I did not get a chance to try it out. Pass on this place if you want service.
What a great place! Last Sunday, I met 2 girlfriends there for lunch...2 of us ended up having brunch. We expected bar food ,BUT, it was so much better. Our eggs were fluffy and the pancakes were light and moist. One friend had the Boxy...that was yummy..going back for that one. The menu offered some interesting choices and the portions were very generous. The bar is well done , very comfortable. The manager took the time to answer all out questions about the history of McGreevey's..the pictures and the memorabilia were facinating. Looking forward to going some night..great TV screens to watch a game. Oh, the music was fantastic. Loved the place!
