I miss their good food and friendly reception.
I will cherish the good times my family had there sharing special holidays in the dining room on the second floor or informal get togethers in the restaurant on the first floor and watching sports event at the bar with friends. Farewell to a great place and wonderful waiters, waitresses, and bartenders.

Pros: Excellent ambiance for family dining

Cons: The place closed this year.

The good here is absolutely delicious; I'm a big fan of their stuffed flounder. The atmosphere is pretty nice, and the service is good. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a nice night out.

The food here is excellent with a very pleasant atmosphere. The service is ok--nothing to really complain about.
It was disheartening when I began to hear rumors that this place might close down, but it hasn't yet.
To be safe, I would recommend eating there as soon as you can to ensure you get this great food!
The only problem I have with it is making a left turn from it's entrance/exit.

When you go to Toms River, don't drink the water, but most importantly, do not eat at the Old Time Tavern. I had been going to the Old Time Tavern for most of my adult life, the prime rib was always superb. I had not been there in 10 years, so Sunday I brought my family there for dinner, while we were travelling through the area, and we had a meal, that for everyone, including the kids was something that could otherwise be found in a can of Alpo Dog Food. My prime rib was nasty, it tasted nasty, it looked nasty and it was very nasty. Served with soapy mashed potatoes and vegitables, some of which were over cooked and some of which were not cooked at all. It was putrid. My wife had some kind of chicken bruchetta, which was disgusting and served on spinach. It looked like someone poured chicken soup on a mangy chicken breast, which I can tell was older than our five year old. My son, age 10, had some fried macaroni and cheese, which when you opened the fried crust, would leak vegitable oil from the innerds of the elbow noodles, even that salad and bread were nasty and stale. To top it off, desert was of an institutional quality, in little dishes that one might encounter at the cafeteria at the local hospital, or some elementary school lunchroom served out of a can. All for the really low price of about $100. They make it all inclusive fruit bowl, soup, salad, coffee and the prison desert to attract the wheelchair and above 60 crowd from the surrounding seizure villages. I used to really like the restaurant but boy what a disappointment. I should have known when I saw the parking lot empty, the handicapped spots all filled, and a bunch of grey panthers wearing hats, that I was better off down the road at White Castle. Sure I would have gotten sick later, but I would have saved $80.

Old Time Tavern has been one of my favorites for years. It has a great atmosphere and is very family oriented. The food is amazing and they also host banquets of all shapes and sizes. The pricing is also great.

This restuarant has been my favorite for years. Great, versatile menu with options for everyone that can please even the pickiest eater. Bar like relaxed setting downstairs, with banquet and reception halls upstairs. Great bar, makes great fancy drinks and has good specials. Maybe it is just because I have been going there for so long, but it seems to have gone a little down hill lately. Nothing bad, just not as great as it used to be. Good early bird specials for the older folks. I'm hoping it bounces back to as great as it used to be, good for casual eating out.
