Big disappointment in Stockton , NJ

rg818 | Aug 21, 2007 08:33 AM

Visited the Stockton Inn on Saturday night for the first time with much excited anticipation. As we approached we thought we were in dining heaven. It is built into the side of a mountain with two waterfalls to the side of beautifully landscaped layered decks. On this nice Summer evening, they had a wonderful jazz band playing on the upper deck. What a great setting! However the dining experience was awful. First the bartender prepared the worst Mojito I ever had. Just tasted like rum and club soda with a sprig of mint. My partners Martini was barely passable. Then the rolls..hard dry nuggets. My crab cakes were cold, overly seasoned and appeared and tasted to have been in the refrigerator for at least a couple of days. My dining companion's crab au gratin was acceptable. Aftter dinner I ordered a Melonball that was also incorrectly prepared by the bar. I don't know if it was just our unlucky day,but it was a shame that a restaurant that has so much going for it can't get the main event right!
