Father's Day lunch!
Had a lovely Father's Day lunch on the outside patio with my husband and my two young adult aged children. The scenery was beautiful, making you want to find a pare of golf clubs and play! We ordered 2 salads and one nacho appetizer along with each having either a sandwich/hamburger platter. The food was very good and enough for eight people vs. four and the service was excellent. The chef, Ralph, was very cordial and made the rounds among the crowd of diners. I would highly recommend The Red Knot for a relaxing outdoor lunch, and look forward to returning for an evening meal. By the way, we also took a peak at the upstairs catering room which overlooks the golf course...VERY NICE!

went here on fathers day with the family so I could watch the end of the US open, yes there are TVs in the dining room. Not an expansive menu but everything we ate was very good, double cut pork chop, skirt steak and mac and cheese app. Burgers looked good, this will also be a great place for lunch or after a round of golf for a burger and beers.

Music too Loud
We loved dining at the Red Knot the only thing we didn't like was the music was too loud and alot of rock music was played which made it more loud.

We decided to try this new restaurant. The food was outstanding however the service was not up to par. We waited 15 minutes after we ordered our drinks, which by the way were very tastyl, asked several times for water, one guest in our party didnt want the black linguini and after waitress assured her she could have regular pasta it didnt cone out that way,asked for a cappuccino never got it. The menu is a bit small but each meal we had was really delicious. The view is amazing. Our waitress was very nice and apologized for al the errors. Very unusual for people being able to smoke on the terrace while others were dining. If you are looking for an inexpensive dinner on a golf course this is not it. A bit pricey but WELL WORTH IT!!

More than just the golf club
The front of house is still finding its feet but the food from the kitchen is excellent. Great ingredients in strong combinations and good portions - this is home food with a welcome twist. The ambience was a little quiet, albeit it was a Sunday evening. Also the staff should know the menu a little better. Overall very promising and a potential local gem.

GREAT food, service needs work
My wife and i recently checked out Red Knot at Galloping here for our belated anniversary dinner. Overall, the food was fantastic, we took doggie bags home from each course becuase the portions were so generous and utterly delicious. The service wasn't "bad" in the typical sense, you could feel someone always looking at or wandering by our table. Few weird things...
1) Two bites or two mintues ... the waiter walked right by our table, looked at us and kept moving, and dind't ask how everything came out (everything came out better than perfect, but still, it was odd not to ask)

We tried the Red Knot and booked it for our anniversary dinner before it opened to the public. The menu is small (which I find as a good thing) and as a result everything was fresh. Beautiful view overlooking the golf course, wait staff was attentive, and the food was hot, fresh, and amazing, however they did not have dinner specials on the Friday Night we went in July. Probably will go back in the fall when the leaves of the trees will have color making it a very picturesque dinner date for my wife and I. Can't wait to go back.

Potential to be excellent...
The restaurant is very nicely appointed. Signage could be better, it's a little confusing getting to the restaurant which is inside the golf course The Galloping Hill house salad was outstanding, far better than my entrée of black fettuccini with garlic shrimp. The shrimp were somewhat "fishy" and far too much oil in the preparation. A few comments about service. I asked for the dressing on the side & it was put on my salad. However, the waitress was very apologetic when I brought it to her attention & offered to make us another salad. Secondly, I guess because the restaurant was empty when we arrived at 5:00 pm, we were "over attended to", in my opinion that can be annoying. Since the Red Knot is new, I will give it another chance.

The ambience at Red Knot was amazing. We dined outside and got a beautiful view of the golf course. It was a beautiful night. The food was generally extremely good. One of my companions ordered the watermelon gazpacho which he really enjoyed. The hamburgers were all excellent. My Red Knot salad was good, although a bit too much radicchio left it slightly bitter. Another companion ordered the skirt steak which was not as tender as it should have been. But all in all, it was very enjoyable.
The service was a little slow but we were a party of nine.
I look forward to coming back here for the food and ambience.

"a hole in one"
Pardon the pun. My wife and I took a chance after the review in the Star Ledger. The reviewer was right on. Food was excellent and the presentation was great. The only area that needs to be looked at by the oweners was the delay in the food coming out. It was a liitle slow and it was the middle of the week. The outside patio has a great view looking at the golf course.

Needs to mature
A good new restaurant that ran out of a few food items early on a Saturday night. I'm hopeful that things get better as the restaurant matures.

Very Nice Dining Experience
Waitstaff was very pleasant but could be more professional. Chose outdoor dining. Disappointed to find out that smoking is allowed. Ugh! Would recommend Red Knot and would return.

Dinner After Golf
My wife and I played golf in the afternoon and booked a dinner reservation for after the round. We had an enjoyable meal with a nice view of the golf course. The service was attentive and the meal was enjoyable . We would go back the next time we play the course.

I was very surprised for a county golf course to find that they had a restaurant, and a good one at that! Kudos to Union County! I went there for a business lunch and was impressed. The Red Knot has an extensive lunch menu which impressed me. I plan on coming back and intend on bring my wife for dinner. The outside patio is huge with great views of the golf course. Splendid.

What a neighborhood find
Went for dinner. Excellent food. Give it a try, you won't be sorry. I look forward to going back. Having said that, I had two problems....Noise from the bar and Service. It's a small inside dining area sharing an open wall with the bar area with TVs. Bar noise really echos into dining room along with one large screen TV. Need to block the noise somehow and do we really need a TV at the edge of the dining room? Service was pleasent but lagged with long waits for appys and drinks. Staff seemed to be catering more to the patrons eating outside on the patio that those opting to eat inside. Having said that, I still recommend it. I did enjoy the food and it's nice to have another great restaurant in the area. I will be back!!!!!!

Great meal but service was slow
We went with a group and had an enjoyable meal. Since we wanted time to talk, the slow service was not too bothersome. But management needs to get on board with some serious staff training. Good food like this deserves good service. We will go back, but after this staff gets some more experience under their belts.

While I think the menu could be expanded, the food here is delicious and the service and ambience make it a welcome new addition to the area

I love the Red Knot. The food
I love the Red Knot. The food is delicious. Everything is executed perfectly from burgers (DELICIOUS!) to higher end food. Last week, I didn't particularly care for one of my dishes. There was nothing wrong with it, it was actually made very well but there was a spice or flavor I didn't like in it.
The Chef came out, and really wanted to replace it, but I was already full from the bread and appetizer. Also, it seemed like a good excuse to indulge in dessert! He insisted on taking it off the bill, which was not something I asked for or expected as the dish was good...there was just some spice in it that wasn't a favorite of mine. I think this really shows the level of customer service and pride the Chef has for his restaurant.

The Red Knot is excellent
The Red Knot is excellent and must not be missed. The food is excellent and my group had a range of food from the hamburger to the duck and it was all delicious. The wine list is ever diverse with some very well priced wines and if you having a large group (10-14) there is a private wine room that I cannot wait to dine in. Its adorable, but it will have to wait for winter because as long as the weather allows we will be eating outside over looking the beautiful golf course. Red Knot is a new favorite on our list!

Sat outside with a beautiful sunset watching the deer on the golf course. Servers were very attentive and friendly. Burgers are huge but wonderful...glad I asked for it on a bed of lettuce. Chef Bryan's donuts are a must!

Unusual Location/relaxing atmospher
Strategically located right off the Parkway at Galloping Hill golf course the noise of traffic is erased once you sit on the terrace and watch the sunset over the greens. What a nice get-away and relaxing atmosphere--friendly and informative staff.
Food offerings were imaginative and it was difficult to choose but the duck was fantastic. Sides were good and wine selection reasonable and well balanced. WIll be returning soon to try out appetizers and desserts!

look for us again!!
This is a new spot in our neighborhood, so we went with six of us from our block. We LOVED it!!!!!!! Food was so good, the service excellent and the ambiance will have us returning. The very next day we were out with other friends and went back there for lunch. Twice in less than 24 hours. So well worth it!!!!!!! Now there are 8 people who will spread the word. Chris our waiter did a wonderful job taking good care of us!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bravo, Galloping Hill.....
