History 101 Oldest Restaurant in New Jersey

I love history and I love food, so it’s a perfect combination for me and maybe for you too. New Jersey has a deep history and I love discovering and sharing different pieces of New Jersey history for you.

Now, if you can combine food and story, you are now talking about a winning combination. I recently came across an article by Delight and it showed some of the oldest restaurants in America and the oldest restaurant in New Jersey.

Delish pointed to a restaurant in Middlesex County as the oldest in the Garden State. the Cranbury Inn has been described as our oldest restaurant. They said “This beautiful inn in Cranbury, NJ was established in the mid 1700’s and still boasts colonial era decor. Two stagecoach taverns, built in the 1800s by the innkeeper, still stand, along with the main dining room, where quality steaks and seafood are served to patrons.

So the question is: have you ever eaten at this historic site? According to the Cranbury Inn website, the restaurant was founded in the 1750s, making it almost 272 years old. If you have dined at the Cranbury Inn, please let us know and post your comments below. “Authentic colonial firearms are on display in the room interspersed with antique clocks and old lithographs as well as recently made oils and watercolors.

There is a full “history” page on the Cranbury Inn website and you can find out more about the long history of this restaurant and the events that happened around this building. Like I said earlier in my article, when you can combine story and food, you have a winner.

Now you know a little more about the oldest restaurant in continuous use in New Jersey, one of the oldest in the United States.
