Best of 2012

The Star-Ledger

“The Gladstone Tavern makes a success of being all things to all people. Every item is produced in-house, which gives a gloss whether you’re indulging in made-to-order guacamole or ice cream. Dishes run the gamut from burgers and fries ($11) to maple-glazed duck ($27). Its lively but refined bar scene is well-separated from the dining rooms. Chef/owner Tom Carlin has worked hard to improve the place over the last six years, and it was gratifying to find out how well he succeeded.”

The Gladstone Tavern is the kind of place that inspires return visits. Not just
dropping in here or there, but regular attendance to sample the specials and
revisit comfortable old favorites. The tavern not only has evolved, it has improved since it opened six years ago .

Best Chef/Restaurant 2012
Edible NJ Local Heroes Award
“Walk into Gladstone Tavern on any given night and proprietor and executive chef Tom Carlin is as likely to be serving tables or pouring drinks at the bar as he is to be orchestrating or cooking in the kitchen.”

Gladstone Tavern — American           
Gladstone's “horsey set” touts the “tasty” Americana served at this “upscale” tavern set in a “beautifully restored” 1847 farmhouse done up in “country chic”– style, with a “wonderful” patio and a “horse statue” on the porch; it’s “romantic” inside, energetic at the bar and especially “nice in the winter when the fireplace is lit.”
