The Old Bay Restaurant is New Jersey's premier New Orleans-style restaurant. Our dinner menu features gourmet French Creole and Cajun cuisine, steaks and seafood. Our award-winning draft beer list features 22 taps pouring the finest micro-brewed imported domestic beer you can find. Enjoy a drink from our full bar - from the Hurricane to the Mint Julep, the Old Bay has got a Specialty Drink for you.
After 10pm, the Old Bay transforms itself into a sophisticated nightspot with outrageous drink promotions and the best live entertainment in central New Jersey. We have multiple festivals, events and specials with tons of food, entertainment and fun. See our entertainment and promotions calendar for more details.
We occupy the former National Bank of New Jersey constructed in 1857. The interior design of the restaurant was a result of numerous trips to New Orleans, and countless hours of conceptual, layout, and architectural work. In 2004, the interior of The Old Bay was completely renovated with additional bar seating and a decor that reminds one of Mardi Gras!
