The large, diverse menu features shareables like crispy cauliflower with a buffalo dipping sauce, a trio of tacos with flour or corn tortillas, and a sensational charred corn and chorizo dip laden with queso fresco and jalapeno that comes with house-made fried tortillas for dipping. The fresh salads and bowls come in generous portions and can be topped off with chicken, shrimp, salmon or steak. The blackberry barbecue ribs are sweet and tangy, served with house-cut fries and a mango jalepeno slaw. Other main options include fried chicken, short ribs and Cajun shrimp. 


There is a hearty list of brews on tap—about 25 options, and even more bottled varieties, plus a changing selection of local beers, mostly from Jersey-based brewers.
