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...

Easy to find location with L shaped parking lot. Clean location with a good selection of beer and friendly staff.

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.

Brew pub & restaurant located in an affluent NJ suburban town west of New York City. Atmosphere tries to be upscale, almost too upscale for a hard-core beer fan, but still accepting if you get there early. Tavern has a great feel to it. Pub Food was good, pricey, but very fresh and well-delivered. Lots of their own brews on tap. Staff was very friendly, as were the regulars at the bar - Iíd return, but in the winter to take advantage of the big windows so I could watch snow fall and drink home-brewed beers!

This place has no soul!!! The food was very good but $24.95 for shrimp & grits? $19.95 for fried chicken! Címon. Had the Helles and the Porter - Helles was ehh, Porter pretty basic but good. Very nice space, fresh cut flowers, huge barrell of apples for the road which was really cool. Horrid about a flat screen in the bar or two, seems like they are shooting for low country fine dining...which is okay but the prices and beer donít warrant a return. Host guy was very nice.
