Interesting place, sort of a British pub feel with New England flair. Theyíve been around for quite a while. They had some pretty bad tap pour issues, odd. Slowed service down. Beers were ok, theyíve gone a little overboard on hops with the IPA and saison (and this coming from a hophead). But in an area with very little craft brewing, you gotta give them props.

Iíve stopped here twice now and both visits were great. The food and the beer were fantastic; definitely worth the visit, and the price. There is a bar and a nice restaurant with a fireplace and huge windows downstairs, and a neat little drinking room with couches and a fireplace upstairs. Every beer I tried here was very good to outstanding. They serve some of their beers cask conditioned on the hand pump.

Stopped in for a sampler and food after Big Brew Beer Festival in Morristown. Really nice place. Bartenders were extremely kind and service was excellent! Got a six beer flight and the beer was average. The burger I got however was delicious! If your close to the brewpub I would suggest giving it a try. If I lived closer I would definitely be a repeat customer!

We were greeted at what would present itself as a yuppy restaurant with forced valet parking. Once inside, our waiter slowly brought food and beer, though both were good. Prices were a bit high, but not surprising given the clientele they seem to draw.

The restaurantís the thing here. We chose Gaslight for our dinner stop, but from the menu and the looks of the food passing by, probably this would have been a much better choice. The beers were decent enough, and they do a sampler tray with six, and gave us sample sizes of the others. Valet parking only, which worked fine.

Decent brewpub. Food is a little better than average. So is the beer for a brewpub. A nice place. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

Great little restaurant and brewpub in the Harvest Group restaurant chain. Some people donít like the valet parking and no baseball hat policy...but you really need to think of this place as a really good restaurant that happens to make some pretty good beer too (and unfortunately has a very small parking lot). The shame in the past has been that NJís antiquated beer laws prevented them from selling their own beers at their other 9-10 restaurants...but the new law passed last year should be changing that soon (or so the mangement of their other locations has told me). This is great as we will now see their better beers at their other locations instead of the couple of weaker offerings that had to go thru distribution before their other locations could buy them back. Come when itís not busy (no valet parking then)...leave your cap in the car...and sit at the bar and enjoy their beers...

I was quite impressed by this place, especially the staff. Everyone (employees and regulars) drinking here was very friendly. The beers ranged from unexciting to rather good and interesting. There really wasnít much not to like here. I will definitely be back. I didnít try the food, but I will next time.

Upscale restaurant. Dark woods, white linen. Small parking lot. The beers were generally solid with no real standouts. The sampler was $10 with six samples they pick for you, though the bartender did give me small pours of the other two they had on tap. The food is very pricy, but its good. Customer service was unresponsive at times, but good.
