American | Old Bridge, New Jersey - Central

We had date night here on a Saturday because our friends band was playing there. We made a reservation but I don’t think it would have been needed. Our waitress was on-point the entire evening, excellent service and recommendations. We had wine and beer and crab cake appetizer to start. The crab cakes were on the small size but delicious. For entrees we had the sea scallops and seared tuna, both excellent. We splurged on dessert and the warm brownie and an Irish coffee. They were your standard desserts items, but didn’t know I had to request whipped cream. We sat across from the bar at a booth and the band was nearby thus the noise level. Overall a great experience for a date night when you want to spend just a little more than your typical outing and guaranteed to have a tasty meal. More
