Rosemary and I love Thanksgiving!! I mean we LOVE Thanksgiving. Gatherings of dear friends and family are wonderful, but of course, this year’s gatherings are different. Groups are smaller. But the feelings are the same. Maybe it’s even more clear what’s truly important these days. The one thing that doesn’t change is the food, the traditions, and the smells wafting through the house.

Hello fellow foodies and happy fall. This week we went off the beaten path a little bit and visited Cinders Wood Fire Grill in Mine Hill. Although Cinders is a well-established eatery, they have revamped their menu as well as the interior of the restaurant.

Welcome fellow foodies to our third instalment of Rosemary & Thyme’s reviews. Our wheels and appetites took us to Salt Gastropub this evening. We were greeted warmly at the rear of the building and led to our table at the side of the music stage of Salt’s “secret spot”. The outdoor area was clean, and the tables spaced very generously. Be sure to have your smart phone handy. Instead of everyone handling the same menus, each person gets a small slip of paper with a QR code that is easily scannable on your camera and can be thrown away after being scanned. This brings you directly to the salt website and their full menu of food and drinks.

So, our wandering wheels took us a little off Lake Hopatcong, but only right around the corner to Lake Lackawanna and The Alibi Beach Bar and Grill. Sitting pretty on the shores of Lake Lackawanna, you’ll be treated to outdoor table seating with umbrellas on the deck, bar style seating around the perimeter of the deck, tent seating on the lawn or even comfy Adirondack chairs on a real sand beach. 

Welcome everyone to the first installment of Rosemary and Thyme’s reviews. We’re just two foodies living in the Lake Hopatcong area who love to explore all the local bars, restaurants, and shops.  We are not paid reviewers, just two friends that LOVE delicious food, shopping, and the lake life!
