Housed inside a building originally erected as a log cabin in 1720, Barnsboro Inn has continually operated as a licensed tavern since 1776, pausing only during the prohibition era. These days, chef's' menu of elegant, fresh American cuisine complements the eatery's lengthy cache of craft beers, international wines, and meticulously preserved napkin rings. Upscale steaks and seafood entrees such as flat iron steak served with button mushrooms and chicken piccata with crab assuage hunger; burgers and sandwiches flaunt such accouterments as turkey breast or corned beef reuben.
Patrons make merry amid two bars and three dining rooms sprawled across Barnsboro Inn's historic digs. Inside, full-wall murals depict idyllic countryside scenes of horse-drawn carriages and straw-covered hovercrafts. When weather warms, staff members also dispense Boddingtons and Flying Fish ales on an outdoor patio, where an additional bar abuts numerous umbrella-covered tables.
Barcelona Bistro's Spanish- and Mediterranean-influenced seafood and tapas earned the elegant bistro-style restaurant a Golden Fork award from South Jersey Magazine in 2012. The restaurant lives up to its accolades with a menu built around the varied tastes, textures, and astrological signs of shareable tapas plates, which include spicy bites of chorizo frito or cool forkfuls of clam in cilantro sauce. Tortilla española earns its stripes as a Spanish classic by showcasing fried potatoes and olive oil in a fluffy egg embrace, and entrees of grilled salmon, pan-seared trout, and bright jumbo shrimp exhibit the coastal influences so integral to Iberian cuisine. The BYOB restaurant's crisp, white tablecloths and dark wood seats create a sophisticated atmosphere to impress first dates, and outdoor seating on the brick patio creates a breezy atmosphere to test the tenacity of trick candles.
Whirls of steam escape from piping-hot pies and pasta, veal, chicken, and seafood dishes as they travel from kitchen to table at Venice Italian Eatery & Pizza. Across the street from the historic Broadway Theatre of Pitman, the 110-seat BYOB eatery treats patrons to a show-stopping menu of pasta favorites with noodles that can be contorted into likenesses of Willy Loman selling Hamlet a timeshare. Entrees can also be transformed into catered fare for the soiree of your choice. The chefs additionally craft an array of handheld sandwiches including burger, pita, and panini varieties.
Even when there isn't a game playing on any of the flat-screen televisions, Steakouts Home Plate maintains the upbeat, spirited environment of a neighborhood sports bar. Dark woodwork, gray stone, and slate-blue walls fill most of the space, providing a cozy place for guests to lounge until as late as 2 a.m. on select evenings. Throughout the week, the bar entertains crowds by hosting regular karaoke nights, pub trivia competitions, and performances by live bands and DJs. Steakouts Home Plate even includes a covered, outdoor pavilion with a distinctive beach theme featuring a corrugated metal bar, mounted surfboards, and a sand volleyball court brimming with buried treasure chests.
Relaxing with a drink isn't the only option at Steakouts Home Plate. The eatery also indulges patrons with a menu of classic comfort foods. Sirloin-stuffed cheesesteaks, Black Angus burgers, and pizzas topped with everything from sliced rib eye and fried onion to crab, shrimp, and scallops provide hearty meals. The selection of finger foods is similarly broad, featuring oysters and clams on the half shell in addition to wings doused with one of seven sweet, savory, or spicy sauces.
Landmark American Tap & Grill aims to live up to its name, providing a dining destination for patrons seeking classic, seasonal American cuisine matched with a rotating selection of craft draughts and bottles. The ever-evolving menu features appetite-slaking classics such as wings, burgers, and ribs, and a unique brunch spread showcases brioche french toast and savory breakfast nachos made with home fries. Bites pair with beers crafted in stateside cities such as Detroit and Grand Rapids, as well as those from overseas locales.
Diners sit at the polished bar or pull up vibrant red chairs to tables, sharing conversations and toasts to toasting amid exposed brick walls. The Landmark also provides a late-night menu to ensure performances aren’t underscored by growling stomachs.
You can't remain the reigning champ of cheesesteak in Gloucester County without having a superior sandwich. And that's just what Little Beef's has, with voters continually lauding their gooey, melty cheesesteak as the best in the county for the last five years. But outside the shop's most well-known sandwich, there's a full menu of hoagies that are worthy of your lunch break. The staff create Philly classics such as the hot sausage and peppers, the meatball parmesan, and the St. Anthony loaded with proscuitto di Parma, provolone, long hots, and sliced tomatoes. These sandwiches pair well with the make-your-own pasta option, and can be swapped out for the lighter wraps or salads that burst with fresh flavors.
