Let me know if this situation sounds familiar to you. You hear about a great restaurant either through a friend or a great online review. You prepare yourself for an enjoyable evening out, only to get to the restaurant and realize you can’t eat there because it’s not wheelchair accessible.
If it were up to us, there would be nothing but wheelchair accessible restaurants in NJ. Unfortunately, there are still some establishments out there that aren’t so accommodating.
How can you tell the wheelchair accessible restaurants in NJ from the non-accessible restaurants? The best way to check, unless you’ve heard it from someone you know, is to visit their website.
Usually, wheelchair accessible restaurants will make a point of telling you somewhere on their website that they’re accessible.
If the restaurant doesn’t mention anything about its accessibility, it may be safe to leave it off your list of wheelchair accessible restaurants. Or you can follow the second step below.
Another way to find out for sure if a restaurant is wheelchair accessible is to hear it directly from them. Pick up the phone and give them a call. They should be able to tell you immediately whether or not a wheelchair equipped individual can access their dining room.
We have taken it upon ourselves to help you identify wheelchair accessible restaurants by creating a list of wheelchair accessible restaurants in NJ. These are restaurants we either know to be accessible through experience, or because they have mentioned it on their website.
This is by no means a comprehensive list of wheelchair accessible restaurants in NJ, but it should at least give you something to choose from. If you know of any wheelchair accessible restaurants that you’d recommend, please add a comment at the end of this post.
