It’s the only New Jersey restaurant to make the list of 103.
OpenTable users rate it 4.4 out of 5 stars, and the restaurant booking app specifies it as a good place for a date, a special occasion, or to see a scenic view. The rankings are based on over 12 million ratings from verified diners across the country of some 30,000 eateries.
The scenery at Rat’s features impressionist-inspired sculptures from sculptor Seward Johnson, along with a lily pond and a bridge.
“We love the food and the ambiance,” said one reviewer. “This time we sat on the patio in perfect weather with a view to the water.”
Rat’s Restaurant has ranked on OpenTable lists before, and last year was one of three New Jersey restaurants called the most scenic in the county.
