I read every review b4 making my way there 4 the 1st time over the wk end, EXTREMELY time consuming, they have 3-4 windows open 2 check in and yet it still took me over an hr 2 even sign in! than u have to go immediately 2 the other side and sit or u will b last 2 get in! The entire process between waiting and finally getting to the metal detector a little under 3 hrs! and visit is over at 2:45 for the afternoon shift so that wouldve left me with just about a 1/2 hr 2 visit def not worth it! some of the staff was helpful but def rude u cant wear anything form fitting they turned me away 4 wearing "jeggings" I dont even own a pair of jeggings lol but i wasnt going 2 make a scene I had on blk pants with a zipper buttons and pockets nothing close 2 resembling a legging. bring sweat pants and over sized shirts because they will basically turn any 1 away they feel like it u cant wear hair scrunchies either its ridiculous. b prepared 2 wait and b treated as a criminal and u should b just fine. if u have children they will b out there mind since they cant bring even a book in there.

Northern State has GOT to be the worst prison in the state of New Jersey. It seems like the officers main purpose to being there is to ensure that visitors do not return. I totally understand that when I got to see my husband that I am indeed in a prison. But how does that make me an inmate? The last time I checked, I could still open my door and walk out side. I do not have handcuffs on. I am NOT state property! Yet the officers there treat everyone that visits there like they are the prisoners. Also, the majority of the officers there are so RUDE! Not helpful at all. The first time I went there it was other visitors that showed me where I needed to go and what I had to do. When I asked an officer, the response was, "Get on line!" And all I could see was what looked like hundreds of people milling about. There is no organization there what so ever! You stand on one line for hours. The wait in another line for another hour of longer. Then when you get into the visiting hall, if your lucky, your loved one is out there with in 20 minutes. And then you MIGHT get a 45 minute visit! That place is ridiculous and should be shut down.

I made a reservation for my best friend's birthday. Let me just say that the website is nice but the place is a train wreck waiting to happen. I was very disappointed in the establishment and very embarrassed by what they had to offer as far and food and service. I wish that they would have informed me that the restaurant was offering an extremely limited menu which included three appetizers and only two entrees- fish and fish. I was extremely embarrassed because I searched all over New Jersey trying to find a nice soul food restaurant with at least three chicken options and the Key Club came in highly recommended. I assured my friends and family that going to this new place would be worth our while and that we might have found a new place to congregate for special occasions. I was extremely wrong! My suggestion for the Key Club is that in the future, when a reservation is made and and then later confirmed that you inform your customers if the full menu is not being offered. Newark, NJ is not very close for us and some of my party came from out of state via tunnels, paid tolls and rode the subway. Moreover, to come all that way in the rain just made the situation even worse. The staff was not very empathetic and their reactions when asked for an explanation seemed less than apologetic. I will never come to the Key Club again. Do not waste your time patronizing this establishment. I let the management know of my displeasure and they said absolutely nothing. They obviously don't care to have business.

It must have been the freaking director heserlf who would rate this facility as Great. I'm not here to voice an opinion, I'm here to tell the truth. Not only is the facility outdated but it is unsafe and not child friendly. Trust me on this one, my child has received some very nasty injuries from this facility (that is why we left)! I never received any notice as to why my child was receiving these injuries, and when I questioned them no one could give me a valid reason. That led me to believe that no one was watching my child properly and wasn't train to do so. None of the programs are offered at all. And there is no curriculum in place for any child. The mismangement of this daycare is do to the lack of education the director and her staff have. No one there is trained to adequately teach your child. My advice to any parent is to shop around. Don't settle for the location, look for quality. It is not a day that goes by that I can't help but regret placing my child in such a terrible environment. I could have spent my money on WAY WAY better. My child was just sitting there, not receiving anything. I feel sorry for all those parents in there that believe that their children are actually receiving quality when they are receiving junk. That's what con artist do and trust me this facility is ran by one. She talks a good game, but anyone that talks more than they are able to show you is full of crap. If your child is enrolled in Bobbies Babies stop taking advantage of the drop off and pick up service, spare the quarter and park your car on Commerce St., drop in any time of the day and take a look at your child. Don't just look at your child's classroom, but take a look at the rest of the rooms. Not one classroom offers your child the space to have an imagination. Where are toys for the children to play. Note to the idiot director - CHILDREN LEARN THROUGH PLAY!!!!! This facility is not equiped for younger children. Maybe you should leave the facilty open to older children as a homework/study lounge. It is definantly not a daycare.

Well as everyone knows everyone has there own opinion on what they think about a business. I personally like this facility because of the opportunity its has for kids to grow and learn. The place is great and I would refer it to anyone who is looking for a daycare provider. This daycare is much up to date and offers more for children to do.

This is absoultely the worst prison ever and the most corrupt place I have ever seen! You get no help what so ever when visiting for the first time and people are very rude! Most prisons I have had to go to to visit had some kind of food to eat except chips and junk food. The visits are ridicules you can not even sit side by side you have to sit so far away you can barely hear each other over the noise of all the other visitors, but I guess this goes to show one ruins it for others!
