The Old Town Pub, formerly the Farnsworth House, underwent extensive renovations during the summer of 2017. We now have a new bar with a 30-tap beer and wine system, a completely re-imagined menu, and a full dining room upstairs with it's own large bar, featuring a 20-tap system.

We feature upscale pub fare with almost all dishes made from scratch in-house.

We offer a large outdoor seating area as well.

This was amazing! I took my sister there for lunch and we were treated so well! The food was delicious! Felt like we were part of their family! They even helped me by putting candles on the small cake I brought with me! We had a wonderful experience!

We're repeat customers at Old Town. Its become our "go to" place in NJ for casual dining, a good drinks/beer menu, reasonably priced and well prepared food. Burgers and tacos are staples at Old Town and we have not been disappointed.

Service was excellent, our waitress was lovely and prompt. Unfortunately, food was not so great. Shrimp tacos were slimy and flavorless and tuna tacos were ok but fishy.

Fantastic restaurant. Great food and the service is phenomenal. Comparable in prices to other restaurants in area and the outdoor dining is great with the heaters. Very warm and cozy, even on a cold evening. Highly recommend.

Old Town Pub did a very good job setting up heaters and seats in their outdoor dining space. The food was superior. We'll be back.

Sat near the door. Busy traffic spot. You should remove that table there. Beer too expensive $8 something for a bottle. You kidding me?? How about $5?!

Enjoy just about everything. Burgers and sandwiches good. Thin fries just ok. Calamari was mainly breading and hot peppers - won't get again.

Old town pub is always reliably good, and I’ve never had a bad experience there. However, during my most recent experience the atmosphere was pretty dismal- a far cry from my previous 10 or so visits to Old Town (good music, joyous atmosphere, etc). I suppose I blame it on COVID.

A little chilly the day we visited so they put a heater on that did help a little bit.
quesadilla were very good and beer is always good, a lot of selections. Leaving for Florida soon for six months, I don't know how all the restaurants will survive with a lot of people not wanting to go inside. Hopefully they will survive

Made reservation for FRI date night with wife and arrived on time for 7pm reservation and was immediately seated indoors (as requested). However OTP had outdoor tented seating w/heaters which was good to know.

FOOD- I ordered the House burger, in which I could immediately taste the superior quality of the meat. My wife had the shrimp tacos which were seasoned well and tasted good. I also had the French Onion which was good as well and the server brought it out at a temperature in which I didn't burn my tongue.

SERVICE- Noticed right away that the wait staff had a team approach to serving the meal which made for timely arrivals of the various courses. Thanks again to wait staff for enjoyable evening- we will be returning.

Excellent food and ambience. Large beer selection. Service was great. Would have given 5s but it took unusually long for our entrees to come out. Waitress had to go check on order several times. Table of 4 sat 20 mins after us and was out 20 min before our check came. Not the waitresses fault but was a little annoying. No offer of free beer or app for the hassle either.
