Seasons is located in a modest strip mall, though once inside the ambiance is appealing with an openness of both the bar area and the main dining room.
The restaurant is owned and operate by brothers Jerry and Joe Duhigg. The brothers come from a family with long service in the restaurants industry having previously owned the Seasons Sports Bar in Edison, NJ
The bar area with large flat screen satellite TV's has a large area for table seating. The crowd at the bar tends to be 40's & 50's with the dining room being popular with families with kids. The main dining area decor is attractive with walls and flooring done up in soft earth tones. The floor covering consists of large tiles. The tables have marble tops set with paper napkins accompanied by wrought iron backed chairs.
They offer a menu of coal fired pizzas, pasta entrees, meat & seafood entrees, salads, and sandwiches.
Their specialty is their pizza cooked in a coal fired oven at 800 degrees. It's one of the best ways (second to wood burning) to cook pizza. The thin crusted pizza comes out well done in a manner of minutes and produces a tasty, slightly charred crust. The pizzas are made with sauce from Italian plum tomatoes topped with extra virgin olive oil, mozzarella, fresh basil and Italian spices with a selection of toppings using fresh ingredients. The pies are traditional and offered in personal (12")l, medium (14") and large (16") sizes
The Mezza Luna Sandwiches are flat bread sandwiches, also coal oven baked and folded in the shape of a half moon and filled with a variety of meats and cheeses.
The wait staff is friendly and attentive
Seasons is kid friendly with a children's menu.
During the warmer months there is outdoor dining on the patio.

New Jersey Leisure Guide strives to provide analytic restaurant reviews .
The methodology used is research, analysis driven --- as opposed to that of a single restaurant critic or a viewer comment posting board.
Data is gathered from our viewers e-mail restaurant comments, Internet research, and professional restaurant critics. The data is sorted, (weeding out the obvious biased, "bone to pick", and out of consensus comments), analyzed, and the review is created.
