Must Eat Monday: Scotch Plains Tavern, Essex

Have you ever been to Essex? It's a cute New England town but they have something incredibly awesome: the Essex Steam Train! The train company puts on two amazing specials for families every year, Thomas the Train in April and May and the Polar Express in November and December. We travel to Essex for both of these events and are always looking for a good, family-friendly restaurant for after we visit the train. Scotch Plains Tavern is new and a PERFECT place!

It is a brand new building and opened just a few months ago. It's just a few minutes from the train station and also has an upstairs.

The decor is classic and clean with a rustic charm to it.

The bar upstairs can entertain a crowd and the restaurant is actually quite large for the Essex area. Restaurants in the area tend to be small and quaint but this is nice, open, and spacious. 

We went in for a quick bite (my husband, myself, and two year old) after a morning with Thomas the Train at the Essex Steam Train. The staff is very friendly and does well with kids. Our waiter entertained our toddler and a waitress even came over to say hi too.

I had a Caesar salad and the fried green tomatoes appetizer (forgot a picture) and both were delicious. I would order both again.

My husband had their steak sandwich special and he licked the plate it was so good. Important to note: their truffle fries are a $4 upcharge and they're good, but not $4 good.

Their kids menu has many options too.

Have you checked our Scotch Plains Tavern yet?
