Have you been looking for a great neighborhood joint–kind of like Cheers, where everybody knows your name? Ok, maybe that’s not quite the scene you want, but someplace you can go for a nice Friday night family dinner or drinks with the girlfriends on a Saturday night where you don’t have to dress up (if you don’t want to!).
Well, Jersey Boys Grill in New Milford has recently undergone a facelift–an all new chef, adult and children’s menus–that’s primed to win you over. One of the best things about this restaurant is the space. The fireplace in the middle centers the whole dining room with a radiating warmth and the large flat screen above it usually has some nightly sports game playing.
I loved the big, comfy booths, which sat our whole family of 5 very comfortably (especially my 4 year old who fell asleep on the way!). Then, as the food came out I noticed a band was playing by the bar area. Sure enough, they have live music available on select nights and Trivia Nights with Joe Trivia. See their events calendar for more info!
Their new kids menu ($5.95 to $7.95) attempts to offer some healthier options beyond chicken fingers (which were very good, btw!). There’s grilled cheese on country white bread, penne whole wheat pasta with marinara sauce or butter, grilled chicken breast or shrimp with steamed vegetables. Yes, you read that right–vegetables on a kids menu!
Another notable feature is their offering of 20 draft beers, 15 of which are craft beers. They also have great prices on their happy hour specials, M-Th from 3-7pm and Friday 3-6pm.
Our fave dishes: Gaelic Steak, Cobb Salad, Capellini Jersey Boys, Rigatoni and Sicilian Meatballs and pumpkin cheesecake with brûlée topping.
