Food was pretty good, they have shortened their menu significantly which has improved the taste and quality of the food on their current menu. E.R.I.C., sings on Friday nights and is amazing.

My daughter's took me there for my birthday. We had lots of fun and the crowd were so nice with each other. I will return but the food was not as tasty as I wish it could have been. I had the stuff shrimps with crab meat, did not like the crab meat and my daughters had salad that they did not enjoy. the drinks were amazing. keep up the good work on that.

overall we had fun and will be back.

Food was on par, as it normally is, and excellent. Bar drinks are the best - esp the red sangria! Service was great!

Very different than expected, although not terrible. Less sophisticated than I imagined. Food was terrific, atmosphere was lively, a bit loud, more "bar" style. Disappointed to see patrons wearing hats and hoodies while at dinner. Service was slow, but they had a large party whom they tried to seat us at the end of their party. We moved our seat so not to be in between the multiple tables for the large party, which was better, but service was slow.

Loved this place. ERIC performed some oldies and had the place dancing at their seats. Food was amazing too; got the thai chili calamari app, crab cake sliders, and cheesecake Nutella empanadas for dessert. Will definitely be back soon!

I did not think they took COVID precautions very carefully. Workers were not properly masked. They also didn't specify indoor vs outdoor on Open Table which they should given the circumstances. They also had a pretty bad bee problem. That being said our waiter was very nice and the food was really good.

Love everything about Par 440 from the food to the service to the atmosphere. There’s something on the menu for everyone. It’s our go to and a favorite of ours. Added bonus is that there’s usually entertainment on the weekends. Highly recommend Par 440.

My dinner was not very good, had chicken parm and the chicken was tough. Don't know how you get chicken to be tough but it was. I would be very skeptical about ordering it again. However, my guest had the strip steak, and it was cooked exactly how she requested it to be and it was very tender. The service was excellent and the music with Julian and Domonique was also excellent. Nice atmosphere overall. However, they need to provide a larger dance area. I know they want to fit more tables to make more money, but the reality is they had a large crowd because of the live music and the fact that people can dance. Take that away and see what happens to their business. The dance area needs to be improved as well, the floor is pretty worn in the small area they have for dancing. The place is large, but only 6 or 7 couples can dance at a time; not a good situation.

My wife and I have been here before to see our friend’s band, Just Jamming and their volume was appropriate for a four piece band. We are also in our own rock band and I recommended Par 440 to friends of ours that we had not seen in a long time knowing that the live entertainment was a crooner with backing tracks. After waiting my turn at the reception desk some woman in a long fur coat walked right past me and the woman receptionist looked right past me and turned to her and gave her a table. I wasn’t there to make a stink and let it go. I never said anything to her. Our friends had arrived early and were at the bar and I was told that by the receptionist. We met up with them and ordered drinks and the background music was at a very respectable level and we could easily hear each other. We decided to get a table and were seated. We sat at the table and ordered our appetizers and continued to talk very easily over the music. The entertainer even came to out]r table to say hello which was nice and I told our friends a little about him. About 15 minutes later he introduced himself and started his music tracks and began to sing. Immediately, we all looked at each other and thought that the music was way too loud. Honestly, most of the crowd was in their late 60’s and 70’s and probably turned off their hearing aids because we just couldn’t take the volume. I took out my phone and measured over 100 db of sound level. Again, we’re musicians and my wife is a studio engineer and our 6 piece band is not nearly as loud as this single entertainer. Maybe he thought he was still at Atlantic City. Looking around we could see people trying to have conversations but sat silent mostly because they couldn’t either. I just couldn’t take it any longer and went to speak to the receptionist. We asked to speak to the manager after another 15 min and she came back with his card and said he’s too busy. Call him tomorrow. We packed up and left. Went to Cheesecake Factory
