One of the earlier brewpubs and beer bars in north Jersey. Decent enough place...just good enough to be worth a special trip...but not great enough to return to very often. The place...service...and selections are a bit eclectic...not quite the norm...sometimes thstís good and they hit a home run with an unusual beer or food offering...sometimes itís just a miss though. One nice thing is that the place is in walking distance to the train station...thatís always handy.

Fairly decent little brew pub. Own beers were good, if not brilliant, but well priced. Reasonable guest range, and even a handpump. Well worth a slight detour to visit.

Great selection in bottles and draft. The beers that they make are pretty good as well, I like their winter offerings better than the summer ones. The food complements the beers fairly well and the atmosphere is nice and welcoming.

Stopped in here in the early afternoon on a Saturday. For a while it was us, another couple, a guy reading a book, and the bartender. At least in the bar. The dining area seemed to be doing brisk business. The atmosphere was quite nice, with a great view of the brew area, which was actually in use while we were there. Got to watch a hop addition, and some other stuff. We had eaten lunch prior to coming, and were having dinner elsewhere shortly after, so only got a mozzarella plate, but it was excellent. Beer sampler was reasonably priced. Beers were nothing amazing, but still decent. Overall a nice place and one I would love to swap with the brewpub up the street from me.

A pretty solid brewery. They had quite a few options on draft, and some non-standard brewpub choices, which is always nice. The beers were solid, not overwhelmingly good, but solid for sure. I liked the food as well. Lots of options, from steaks, to pasta, to seafood, to German style food, to deli, there was something on there for just about anyone. Our server was nice enough, though he didnít seem overly knowledgeable about the beer. We went their for dinner, and sat at a table, not the bar, and I had no idea they had anything on cask or any guest beers. The menu only listed their own stuff, and didnít even mention which ones were available and which were not, I had to ask the waiter for that information. Nice place, but that part was pretty annoying.

The food was quite good. What struck me most was that the beers were served at the right temperature (e.g. the A.B.C. bitter was served at room temperature). This seems rare for the area...

Nice place. Food is solid to very good. Nice range of beers. Very friendly staff in my experience. Their growler didnt seal for me though and i ended up with flat cask bitter.

I always enjoy a fun trip to Gaslight with some old friends when I am visiting family on the east coast. The bar stools the front room are almost always occupied. There is a positive vibe to the restaurant. Their beer cheese soup is a must. The sandwiches and burgers are both good (try the pizza or salsa burgers), and their more upscale cuisine is prepared well, too. The booze selection is middle of the road, but some of their brews (Wee Heavy, especially) make for good session beers. The service is good, the food is good, the beer is good. What else could you possibly want?
