Restaurant Review


Moore's Tavern is a restored, historic tavern in Freehold, NJ, dating back to the Revolutionary War that was expanded with an additional building attached to it.


Moses Mount, who lived in the original structure which now serves as the bar area, was an aide to General Washington during the Revolutionary War. Upon his return to Freehold, Moses began operating a tavern in his home, at this location, for the local gentry and an Inn for weary travelers.


While the bar area has been preserved from the original circa 1770 building, the dining area, and second bar is in an expanded, very large contemporary wood trimmed area. with lots of wide screen TV's.


It's primarily a sports bar with live entertainment and a good place to come for a beer, burger, and ribs, and to meet up with friends for drinks and food..


Patrons come from a wide variety of age groups from 21+ to 60+.


There is nothing unusual about Moore's Tavern food that would set them apart from other taverns in the area.


They are very child friendly, a good place for the kids.


The service is friendly and attentive.


Except on football weekends, Moore's Tavern is a good place to go if you don't want to wait long for a table.


They have live entertainment on Friday and Saturday evenings from 10 pm to 1:30 am.


Moore's Tavern has a popular Happy Hour Monday-Friday, 3 - 7pm, Saturday & Sunday, 1 - 5pm
