A Neighborhood Bar

With an eclectic menu of modern American cuisine, Steel Wheel Tavern is sure to please. Located in Ridgewood’s Historical District, directly across from the train station, Steel Wheel Tavern maintains the charm of its late 19th century origins, with the up-to-date appeals of craft beers, specialty cocktails and a substantial wine menu. It also boasts a delectable variety of popular pasta dishes, locally sourced duck and poultry from Goffle Farms, Angus beef, vegetarian selections, composed seafood plates, sandwiches and burgers. There are also a bevy of appetizers and salads along with an extensive kids menu.
