Ok first of all, this bar/restaurant USED to be awesome. Ever since the new owners took over it has been downhill ever since. What happened to the old staff? Oh thats right, you made way for your family members to take over. LAME And excuse me lame owner lady but how are you going to sit there and tell people that they dont tip well or they dont spend as much as you want them to? That right there shows some real CLASS that you have. Get up off your high horse, you turned a completely good place with great staff and great service into a sucky place with a crapload of lameness. You fired awesome servers, bartenders and cooks you didnt even know long enough to pronounce their last name right and for stupid, illegitimate reasons. Its Probably why your establisment closed. Way to go. Thumbs up to your management skills. You ruined a perfectly good place that many many many awesome memories were made. I wish the Carlson's never sold that place.

Laura and family YOU ALL SUCK

Does anyone know what happened to Gunnar's? I went by today and there was a sign up saying Closed until further notice. The do have really good food, great atmosphere, and friendly service so I will be sad if they are closed for good.

i am the co-owner of gunnar's. i am so tired of all the cheap shots taken at my business and family.yes we have changed the hours of business. we are also a resturant/bar. we are in the business to make money. but some of you think we run on a money tree. you come in spend minimal, complain the whole time and leave minimal for the staff. we are clean, provide a good service, good food at a decent price.our menu is made from 98% fresh product. so it means orders are cooked per table as they come into the kitchen. if you want fast food you know where it is served. if i choose to close early as in this past winter, due to the fact that there was no traffic and in the last hr. or so no one has been in . then my choice. it takes money to heat etc the place. if we close due to snow/ice i am thinking of my staff, who have family that would miss them if something happened to them. You have a problem then come in and complain to my face. i am working 6 days a week, more hours then any of you would probably work in a week. as do my staff and children. and yes which of my kids/staff is dirty/pierced/etc. look in the mirror. not one of you is perfect. for all of you that have never been to our place stop by, let me know you read this. you will not be let down. wing day/night is thursdays .40 per wing. our deck will soon be open. yes we do have a great view. beer is cold. if we run out of a certain menu item it is because we only make fresh food and buy with that in mind. hours are for the most tues. thru sun. open at 12:00 noon thru about 9:00/10:00 for the kitchen. the bar closes anytime up till 2:00. if there are people drinking etc. we stay open. if no one there i chose to close. we also have a new pool table in the bar area. yes i have gotten rid of the riff raff so to speak and do not put up with lots of swearing but do we all really need to use the "f" word as every other in a sentance. my staff is clean, friendly etc. but if you expect to have your butt kissed because you think you are special. ha ha on you. everyone is special. so get over yourselves. if you do not want to ever come back in our place, then do so. there are always others who will. so again i am laura, all of my children jonathan, jason and holly work with me. I have a great staff, melinda on days. ashley, melissa, johnny and my daughter, Holly work the bar/tables. If you have a problem see me in person like an adult. don't be a coward and hide behind words. anyone can do that and not even use there own name. i look forward to meeting new people as do the staff. do not let a few make up your mind come see us for yourself. all of you on a bike outing stop on by. we are family friendly. family run. check us out. "yep i do believe i may have pissed some of you off but such is life" so hope to meet alot of new faces this spring, summer and fall. we have a great deck, fishing is permitted during the season, a great grove area. bring the family or just yourselves. we also do take out orders. our phone is 908-475-4900. but really do give us a chance. worth it. and to the rest of you read my mind. yup is so. laura as far as the rating everyone is open to improve.

The new owners are NOT friendly, the staff is not attentive and the food is ok, was better before. It seems like they are trying to attract a different type of crowd, but they are going about all wrong. The place is empty by 9:30 pm on the weekends and if someone does want to come in at that time to eat, they let you know it is a bother, they do start putting chairs up on the table at9pm. They serve until 11:00 or at least that is what the menu says, they should change the time because they really don't want to serve pass 9pm.

to all the people who have put gunnar's new owners down face the facts that the old staff were to drunk or stoned to bother with what was going on with the business. the place is cleaner then before, food better, prices not much more. so get over yourselves and grow up. life does go on. wing night is now thursday. same great wings. menu i noticed is not much different. as far as cold, place used to be so cold 2 winters ago you could see your breath. so if you want a nice, clean, family place where everyone is welcome visit gunnar's landing as see for yourself. i always try not to let ignorant fools influence me in my decisions. go check it out yourself.

I was going to Gunnar's to see their cook John who made the most excellent HOT bbq sauce. Hot with allot of flavor. John would make me up jars of just the sauce to take home. In 2005 I moved to SC and I wish I have the receipe!!!

I felt like I needed a tetanus shot just looking at the bartender's body piercings, and the irratic body art of other employees. The one guy that works there felt up every orafice of a girls body before he returned to his kitchen duties. When my steak came, I highly suspect that it was secretly fried racoon. As long as this place is open, and their snaggly toothed staffed , is aloud to remain in the kitchen, the general public is not safe

Anybody who has given Gunnar's Landing's Business or new owners bad review, is absolutely out of thier minds....The businees AND family that runs and operates the whole place is nothing but fabulous and wonderful to thier patrons in every way possible. The food is outstanding by any means and I would recommend everyone I know to patronize the place everyday possible. If you want to take a cheap shot, do be fair and not an moron. Best ribs, best hotwings and best everything else is served there, AND with a smile.....

new owners have taken gunnars to a whole new low! service has always been the worst, but now they rarely have wings (on wing night!) the beer selection has seroiusly been lacking, its freezing cold (turn on the heat cheapos!) and finally, there was no toilet paper in the ladies room. sad sad thing to see a dive bar fall into the pooper. hope they close down.

This place has really gone down hill. They got rid of a lot of the staff that everyone knew and liked -- weird decision. The food isn't that much different, but there's a always this kid (owner's son) and his doofy friends in the place that look like they're in a metal band or something -- I just don't want them near my food personally. They raised prices, they're not very friendly, and they got rid of the staff. That's 3 negatives with no positives. That's not good. Oh, and I think the place is dirty.

The food at Gunners is always fresh and very good. They do not skimp on portions either.
The staff is very friendly and the service is good.
A nice place for a relaxed casual lunch or dinner.

Recently went to Gunnar's Landing on route 46 In Buttzville, NJ. They have a very clean and inviting atmosphere with a big beautiful deck off the back over looking a gorgeous stream. The service is friendly and attentive, drinks were very well made and the food was outstanding. My date & I shared a bunch of stuff. They have great pub faire like wings, amazing cheesesteaks but the entrees looked pretty great too. You will not be disappointed.
