Local Restaurants

1911 SmokeHouse Bar-B-Que is a local bar and restaurant with fresh and homemade food. It’s the community meeting spot where you can bring your friends before or after a show at Passage Theatre.

The Mill Hill Saloon has a decent, inexpensive menu and a full bar.  Cuisine tends towards Italian-American and includes good burgers.  The kitchen stays open late and is likely to be open after a Friday or Saturday performance.

Trenton Social is a couple of blocks further down Broad Street, but still close to the Theatre and provides a more sophisticated bar menu.

The Big Easy serves several kinds of fish and chicken, with soul-staples like collard greens and mac & cheese. It closes at 7 PM on Thursdays.

Here’s a restaurant that requires a short drive, but is one of our favorites Latinx establishments: Restaurante El Mariachi.

Several restaurants are convenient to the Mill Hill Playhouse. We’ve listed some our favorites, or check out HiddenTrenton.com for extensive restaurant reviews.
