Having lived nearby my entire life, I feel so silly that this was our first time at Robin’s Nest! What a lovely gem. I already had a great first impression because I booked an outdoor table for a special occasion, and when I called was ensured that we would be able to sit outside by the water. Once we arrived, the hostess was ever so kind and welcoming! Awesome food, fun and tasty drinks, a great and delicious variety of desserts, a beautiful ambiance. What more could someone want or need? If you’re thinking about going or booking a reservation, just do it. And, do NOT skip on the truffle fries or the orange fromage cake.

How awesome that you have finally "found" us! And you had truffle fries AND orange fromage on your first visit?! No wonder you're hooked. Ha ha. Those are two absolute favorites. Looking forward to welcoming you back. Thank you for posting such a nice review.

Hearing about the place for years. Outdoor dining was in a plastic tent with no breeze. Seemed like a limited menu and wasn’t creative. Server was blah.

Robin's Nest Restaurant
Responded on 26 July 2021

Although we try to give everyone a 5 star experience occasionally we fail to achieve that goal. Our brand new canvas tents cover some of our outdoor waterside seating. There have been some recent days with brutal July weather in NJ, hot and humid with no breeze. We so wish we could control that; but, the only remedy seems to be our indoor seating with air conditioning. As for the menu, we agree that it is limited, that is due to a variety of factors such as staffing and supply chain issues.

This is my favorite place to go. My girlfriends and I celebrated 30 years of friendship with a beautiful view and outdoo seating. The waitress was extremely helpful with ordering. The blueberry soup is a must have, fresh ingredients, all entrees prepared. to perfection. We took our time, every thing was spaced out perfectly. I highly recommend this place!

Sounds like your friendship with your girlfriends started at about the same time as The Robin's Nest became a restaurant in downtown Mount Holly! Glad that we were able to help you celebrate. And how lucky you were to get a serving of that blueberry soup. A Robin's Nest specialty!! Thanks for posting this review.

We ate inside because the weather was questionable & it was very comfortable and pleasant. Our food was delicious - we each had shrimp tacos - just the right amount of spices and the perfect amount of food. We could relax and not feel rushed eating our lunch, sipping our iced tea and chatting.

They called and asked if we wanted to sit inside due to it being so hot.
Everything was delicious. Service was great and they did not rush us out. I had never met in person my dear friend and her hubby. They are from CA and RVing the east coast so it was the perfect place to catch up and they loved the place!

Two words for you: truffle fries. Sooooo good. My cheeseburger was good too, although a little dry and crumbly. The cheese, bacon and carmelized onions on it made up it. Seriously, get the truffle fries.

I would not be returning to this restaurant as the food was prepared incorrectly - which we pointed out to the server, the music speaker was blasting us at the table we were seated at and there were no acknowledgement from the manager to address concerns. I attended during restaurant week and not sure if the food reflected the normal fare.
