This is our go to spot for any celebratory meal. Enjoying birthday dinner for husband last evening. We had the best table in front of one of the fireplaces. We both chose a special of crab crusted halibut which was delicious. Food here is always excellent but the level of service here is what makes this so special. It starts with matre’d Jose who has the uncanny knack of making you feel like the most important person that has ever visited. We were happy to see George as well, who is one of our favorite servers. It was the perfect night!

Lovely dinner for a milestone birthday! The service was excellent and the food was all delicious. Oysters were so fresh and the tuna crab tower was very tasty. Very nice energy for a Sunday evening, warm and festive atmosphere, and our table felt safe even given Covid. Not all tables were spaced as nicely but maybe not everyone was concerned with that. We had never been here before, we livebabout half an hour away and we were so pleased with everything! I highly recommend TheMetuchen Inn..

Even though the service was great, they forgot to bring our salads and when reminded, they brought the wrong one to one of us. They also forgot one of our app’s. Had to be reminded. Due to Covid they were short staffed. The food, however, was amazing as always.

It is always delightful to dine at the Metuchen Inn. However the atmosphere at Christmas was exceptional with the beautiful and festive decorations, the fireplace alight and a joyful feeling throughout the Inn. It was more like coming to someone's house for the holidays than a commercial establishment. The food was beyond delicious. 😋 Bravo.

My friend and I got together for an early Christmas celebration and we had such an amazing night! The rooms had such a warm and inviting feel to them, truly making it seem like you’re eating within a Victorian dining room. The food and cocktails were delicious, we never felt rushed, the waitstaff was so kind. I felt like I had such an amazing meal that was so appropriately priced too. I cannot wait to go back!

Food was certainly delicious! Menu was big enough but could have had a few more options. The portion size was a little lacking for the price. Again, definitely delicious buy not OMG delicious.

Beautiful setting, great food, attentive/friendly service. Especially nice during holiday seasons. Difficult parking in a small lot, but definitely worth the extra effort.
It's just too nice a place to miss out on. Highly recommended.

Good food and reasonable value, always a nice dinner. Felt a bit rushed as they are closing earlier (Open Table did not seem to know this) and the servers were hovering a bit too closely. It did not ruin the dinner but it was uncomfortable.

We celebrate our anniversary there and love it! Last night, we were there with 2 other friends as well. There was a table for 4 next to us and they were incredibly rude and loud. They graciously moved us into a private room.

We highly recommend it!!!!

This is our go to place for any special celebration. Last night my birthday. We were so happy to have George, our favorite server, working a very busy evening. Food is always exceptional and there is a new menu. We started with shrimp cocktail, and the 4 crustaceans were huge. The sauce is exactly to our liking with horseradish. We both chose ravioli, a real departure from our usual halibut pick. DH had the crab and I chose the butternut squash. In each the sauce was exquisite. We both cleaned our plates. All washed down with a favor, Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc. The maitre d, Jose, is to be recognized for his ability to real all customers and make you feel like the most important client. We really appreciate this personal touch.
