Arthur’s Landing

9/4/2007 Clam Bake BBQ Recap:

Was a perfect day to take the light rail up to Weehawken for the First Annual Arthur’s Landing Clam Bake BBQ. There were close to 200 people that attended this 8 hour event. They enjoyed the clam bar, outdoor Barbecue and live music. I’m still trying to recover from the odd assortment of drinks I decided to choke down.

The buffet-style eats in the indoor dining rool was well above average when it comes to “buffets”. Great burgers, hot dogs, two kinds of ribs, sausage & peppers corn on the cob and more. The trays were filled with fresh food from the outdoor charcoal grill as needed.

At the outside bar, there was a large selection of clams & crabs. The band kept everyone entertained, and the bartenders were dishing out cold beer, rum and mojitos. Several reps from the liquor company were handing out free t-shirts as well. At the end, various raffle prizes were awarded, with the grand prize being dinner for two at Arthur’s Landing, along with a 2 hour “romantic” ferry trip around Manhattan.

A bunch of Hoboken people attended too. Not bad for a “rookie” first engagement. Based on this year’s event, Arthur’s plans a couple upgrades and changes for next year’s gig.

Part of the “Get out of Hoboken” series, today we take a look at Arthur’s Landing in Weehawken, NJ at Port Imperial.

I experimented with a “video review” today, and will only have a brief summary here. The Executive Chef describes each dish. Let me know what you think of the video!

Summary:

  • Excellent daily specials, affordable
  • Updated menu, new chef
  • Some amazing dishes worth checking out
  • Renovated outdoor bar, nice NYC skyline views
  • Easily accessible via Light Rail
  • Not like you may remember; Younger crowd seeping in, less “blue hair”

See menus and other restaurant info on their website: http://arthurslanding.com/

I heard they have a good brunch – maybe so on most Sundays, but not today! To celebrate Father’s Day, they jacked the price of brunch $10, reduced the menu selection and did not include cocktails….and I received powdered eggs. Garbage!

Video review was really cool but looked like a more NJ transit review. When you get off the light rail how far is the walk?

Aurthurs landing is a great place. I have been there twice recently and it was great both times.

best view of NY you can find anywhere.

411: Right on with the production quality. Who was that setting the mood, Bebel Gilberto? Very nice of the guy to let you into his crib like that. I always thought that place was an old N Jersey dump, (Eh, Tony. My effin’ steak was diss effin’ thick) so thanks for the tip. Hope to see more of those promo vids.
