I was a little put off by the $2 per person charge applied to our bill for COVID.
I live and eat out all the time in Manhattan yet I have never come across a COVID charge per person by a restaurant before.
This was the first time we had been there and it was a very nice day since we had to be seated for outside dining. It is an Historical Inn that is beautifully restored in a great location near downtown Clinton, NJ. The food was excellent as well as the service.
We have definitely planned to return to see more of the area and dine there again.
Enjoyed evening but staff was stretched by not enough waiter thus making things a little slow.
Beautiful night, amazing setting, great food and service.
We had a lovely evening. Eric ,our waiter , was attentive to our needs,pleasant and very professional. We sat outside and it was very comfortable.
We ate outside on the porch on a hot steamy July evening. A few strategically placed portable fans would have made our dining experience much cooler. However, I give them an A for making an effort to bring patrons back to their restaurant and would encourage everyone to go out and help support small local business, especially those in downtown Clinton.
Had a very nice Luncheon with my cousin. We shared the beat salad, clams casino and crab cake appetizers. Was very good!
Great experience overall, thanks!
Is very different dining outdoors. But overall is was nice experience. After 4 months it was great getting out.
I think the Clinton house has tried to make the most of our current situation. I do wish they had an outside bar that you could stop by for a drink.
The food was delicious and it was really nice for a birthday dinner. I like the fact that they adjusted the menu and put more inexpensive items on and food like a cheeseburger or a salad. Its so hot to eat heavy food in the heat.
Outdoor seating is safely set apart, and each table has overhang or umbrella. Staff was very attentive and followed safe sops very well. Menu has a good array of fresh seasonal options, as well as savory hearty meals (nice portions and delicious). We had the beet salad, crab cakes which were light and perfectly prepared (mostly crab), short ribs and mashed potatoes along with great cocktails served icy in mason jars. Outdoor seating is set off of active road and entrance to downtown Clinton and river, so there is constant activity around but it fits well with the setting and does not impact conversation.
Excellent as always!
Atmosphere was great, seating was great, food was great! I don’t remember the name of our server, wish I did, because he was awesome. So friendly and fun. He was very patient as well, it took us a while to place an order for food because my companion and I were busy talking. His service was attentive, meaning we never had to flag him down to ask for anything. I gave a 25% tip but once I got home I wished I had given more. Having to wear a mask while working is difficult, more so if it’s hot outside but he was very friendly despite it! This was my first time here and would definitely come back again!
Everything was great, from the service to the meal and drinks!!!
Absolutely fabulous! Beautiful, relaxing outdoor dining, tables spaced far enough apart to make everyone comfortable. Delicious food and beautiful presentation to make every occasion a special occasion!
Hostess was super sweet! Sat us right away and we had fresh mason jar cocktails and a great dinner on their front porch with a passing thunderstorm (we didn’t get a bit wet!).
Would go back again!
Sat on the front porch. Perfect!
We had a very nice dinner and the ambience was better than expected. Will definitely go back. I miss the salad that used to come with your meals.
So happy to finally have dinner at the Clinton House! It was a beautiful night and the food never disappoints.
First time out since March. I think I might enjoy it outside at the Clinton House better than inside. Wonderful experience.
John was our waiter and did a great job! The food was delicious!
It was our first time there, and each dish the 4 of us had was delicious.
The service was attentive and the ambiance lovely.
We will be back!
Celebrated parents 70th birthday!
Overall, experience was very good. Food was just below very good as I don't care for a vegetable medley. Service was very good. There was a potential problem with a gift card due to their system being down but the manager was very accommodating in helping us through it.
There was just the 2 of us for our 50th anniversary. The only unfortunate issue is that we were seated in a room with 2 or 4 large parties that were very loud. Next time I hope to get reservations by directly calling the Clinton House.
Love the ambiance of this restaurant. Cozy fireplaces and very warm. Server was outstanding. Could not do enough for us but did not hover. Chicken and Seafood was ok and slightly on the bland side. Would get steak next time, it looked great! Desserts were good and the ‘pour’ on my scotch/rocks was wonderful. Would go back for sure.
Great place for a Family Lunch
Colonial ambiance, great food, great bar. Bet service.
Great food. We always go there for special occasions as it’s a little on the pricey side.
I had the swordfish special. It was about 1/4 inch thick and totally overcooked.
Was not as good as usual. a little disappointing. Must have been an of night.
Five people had different platters, all of which were outstanding. Best margaritas!! Particularly exceptional service! Big thanks to Heather who did everything she could for us!
First time to the Clinton House restaurant, this is a very historical location. Located right on the banks of a pond/river and the building is a beautiful Colonial style. The restaurant has a vibrant bar scene and there is entertainment on the the weekends. Food quality is superior to any other steak houses I've been too, I ordered the Queen size cut of Prime Rib and it was very large and delicious. Service is spot on and pricing is moderate for what you're served. I strongly recommend a visit if you're ever in the Clinton, NJ area.
My husband likes his steak medium well, just pink. The waitress insisted that it will come out brown not pink. After some discussion, he relented and she brought out a medium rare steak. He was very upset because of her insistence on the wellness and wouldn't listen to him. Food was just okay, will probably no go back.
We arrived for a reservation at 5 started with two beers and an appetizer portobello mushroom Styx the salad was fresh and good I had the filet mignon which was ordered medium rare but was barely medium very disappointed and was below my expectations all else was good waitress and the restaurant staff were gracious and offered our deserts on the house which we accepted
Outstanding food and service
Our server, Laurie was friendly and helpful and helped make our experience as good as the quality of the food
It was our first time visiting which is surprising since we live right down the road! The food was great, our waitress was wonderful! I wish I could remember her name! Overall, great experience will definitely return and recommend.
Unfortunately the server spilled my mothers wine all over my mother. Waitress did not offer anything for the mistake. She was soaked. No free drink, no discount. Don’t even think she told the manager.
Cute environment. The service was slightly rushed but overall I would recommend.
The Clinton House was great again, including the best seafood fra diavlo we’ve ever had ! Slight markdown for table, but understand they had to jam people in on busy holiday night
