Wow, glad you read my 2 year old review and the rest of them. I probably go to Foster's twice a month, so I don't think Craig would want me to stay home. Many of my early comments were in fact addressed. For a while, I thought the food was stepping up (had a cheesesteak sandwich special that was really good), lately it may have slipped a little.
I can usually find a decent beer here and the food is good. This place continues to be in my rotation. Is it a 5 star as you report, definitely not, but it is a good neighborhood pub with above average beer. I think Craig is a good guy, and the staff at the bar has always been friendly.
I give detailed honest reviews and don't throw 5 stars out at every place. City Paper does not define their stars, but most reataurant guides see 1 star as recommended. 5 is typically reserved for a place that you would drive 200 miles out of your way for (3 to me denotes good). Owners can use my free assessment to improve or not. If they improve, I will go back as is the case with Foster's. Some places are not geared towards my tastes, or do not care to be.

This is why I don't review on here any more. You give a thoughtful honest opinion and some PBR drinking idiot slams you for too much information. They would rather see reviews like "This place rocks, can't beat dollar PBR's"
I read brewengineers review and am looking forward to trying this establishment. 3 stars by the way is a recommended place and a very good rating. What negativity was in the review, it seemed honest and well thought out. The majority of the people on this site throw 5 stars around so that it has become utterly meaningless. 5 stars is the place if you are visiting for only one day, you have to get there.
1 star- acceptable quality
2 star- good quality
3 star- very good quality
4 star- superior quality
5 star- exceptional in every way- food drink decor service
there are 232 four star and above restaurants in city paper's guide. Honestly, there are probably less than 10. In Charleston though, we have 5 star bagel shops??
What's the format?
haven't been in the restaurant in a while due to poor service issues (actually horrendous service issues) and lack of beer. Yes I did tell the manager and supposedly still ahve a $25 credit there
delivery has always been painfully slow too.
Maybe it has improved, but I have had carry out at a neighbors house in the last few months and I can say that unless it has changed from then, this is absolutely of no relation to Chicago style pizza.
Sad part about this place was that it was one of my favorites when it opened in HH, and was good here when opened. Like all franchises, they tend to spiral downhill.
This is a no brainer. Not even a close contest. Congrats.
obviously, voters have never been to a deli or sub shop in NJ
