I have never had a bad meal while dining at the Fireside Inn. The prices are a little high but the atmosphere and food makes up for it. The staff is always so welcoming and the service is great.
It has been some time since I have dined at Casa Bianca Restaurant-- as I have moved away since they had the fire there a few year ago. Their service was always impecible. Their menu is great and their prices are pricey. It is a nice restaurant to enjoy a dinner without feeling rushed out.
Formally known as Ray's Pizza-- the new name is Piscataway Pizza located near ShopRite on Centennial Avenue. They restuarant is always kept clean and the staff is always welcoming and helpful. BY FAR, Pisacataway Pizza has the best buffalo chicken pizza in town. Their prices are comparable to other pizzerias in Piscataway.
Sparta Lanes is a fun place to go bowling with family and friends. Located in center of Sparta, it is a prime location with easy access to the parking lot. Remember that it is a high school hang out, especially on the weekends. Prices are like many bowling alleys.
My sister had her wedding at the Aldie Mansion in August of 2008. The castle and the castle grounds are breathtaking. The gardens and manicured lawns added to the beauty. The courtyard where she took her vows was quaint and provided a quiet place away from the parking lot. The bridal party room was spectacular with a "Romeo and Juliet" balcony over the courtyard. Her wedding planner [provided through Aldie Mansion] was annoying and did not listen to all of my sister's requests. The Aldie Mansion is a pricey venue, however it provides a romantic setting.
The Irish Cottage Inn is a relatively new establishment located along Rt. 23 in Hamburg, NJ. Their food is delicious and the atmosphere is enjoyable. Prices are reasonable. It is a great place to meet up with friends.
Szechuan Garden Resaurant has very tasty food. Their menu provides with the basic Chinese food options. The restaurant is always kept very clean. The staff isn't always the most friendly and sometimes I feel like they "watch" me eat. Their service is always very quick.
Meadow's Hallmark is a small store that provides the basics of what Hallmark stores are about. When busy, it is sometimes hard to negotiate around the store. Their staff is usually friendly and willing to help answer questions or locate what you need.
As a local, my experience at Woodloch Pines & Springs brings in a new prospect than those who have used it as a vacation spot. In high school, I worked on the babysitting staff for vacationers to use while staying on the property [I believe they still offer such service]. The owners are amazingly nice and very caring about their employees. I also attended multiple events that were remarkable-- from cleanliness to tasty food.
**They also used to have a WONDERFUL craft fair once a year that brought in awesome vendors. I'm not sure if they still do this event, but it was great!
Being that I'm from the area, I have never used their hotel services but I have attended a wedding and other events at the Central House Family Resort. Located on the lake, the Central House provides a beautiful location for an outdoor wedding. The reception hall area is small but kept very clean. The food was tasty.
