A word from The Dining Room - Molly Pitcher Inn
The Molly Pitcher Inn prides itself not only in its fine dining menu but also its service and atmosphere. It is an ideal setting for that special occasion or just an elegant dining experience. Under the crystal chandeliers of our Dining Room, we serve some the most tantalizing cuisine in all of New Jersey. Our panoramic windows provide a truly breathtaking vista. No matter what season or time of day, the quiet stillness of the Navesink River envelops all who dine here.
Our famed Sunday Brunch has been the proud recipient of the Asbury Park Press, Readers’ Choice Award for Best Brunch since 1996. The Brunch is available Sundays from October through mid-June. On Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas we offer a seasonal and more extensive Brunch for our guests to celebrate their special holidays; reservations are required.

Diner Reviews
  • "good food and a beautiful view...would recommend this place when visiting Red Bank...don't miss it"
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "We arrived at about 5 PM. There was a wedding taking place at about the same time. The parking lot was crowded due to that. Valet parking was available. Before going inside we sat on the outside deck overlooking the boats and river. We were seated by the window again with a beautiful view. The menu was limited but offered enough variation. I had filet and my date ordered scallops. Perfect. Jackets required after 5 PM on Friday."

  • "We had lunch on a lovely summer afternoon. Perfect in every way. Crab cakes were delicious. Service friendly and attentive but not obtrusive. The view alone is worth the visit."

  • "The choices on the menu are unique and absolutely delicious! We had a very relaxed and enjoyable meal. The service was excellent and the view was beautiful from every table in the restaurant."

  • "Place is breathtaking with beautiful views of the river. However, with the acception of shrimp cocktail and salad, the food was horrible! Almost not edible! Filet Mignon on bone had no taste at all and served over a bed of spinach purée. Spinach absolutely gross! Reminded me of nursing home food!"

  • "Food was elegantly prepared. The setting, overlooking the river, was beautiful. Live piano music in the bar."

  • "she wanted to go for a quiet, high end, lunch. We were sat in the back half of the room. Note to self - next time make an earlier reservation to get a window table. A large noisy group was sat next to us so we asked to be moved. There was nothing available but the bar so we ate there. That cut some of the fun out of mom's visit but what could they do? The food was serviceable. Mom isn't an adventurous eater so she liked it. My lobster roll was served on a croissant and with the overload of mayo used, that made for a very heavy and greasy sandwich. We skipped dessert. She will want to go again but I'd rather not. If you go, I suggest the brunch. That is very good."

  • "The food ok, but they almost lost my credid card and they never say sorry. They got me upset so I forgat my present and when I did came back in 1 hour they told me the box was empty so they just trow the box away. It's lie , my present was a money, gold, lipstick from Victoria Secret and A/X scarf that was very expensive present because I had 8 people with me for dinner. They still didn't return me anything and no calls, I try to call them and I think they don't think how important that box for me. Unprofessional workers there, I don't think I can't trust them again with my credit card and....or come back to this restaurant:("

  • "We stayed at the hotel and were travel-weary, so were happy to find an excellent restaurant on premises. We met friends for drinks in the beautiful bar and then met other friends later for an excellent dinner. As we had not seen either set of friends in a long time, it was nice to find a quiet spot to talk. Our meal was very good and the staff attentive and nice. A great place."

  • "My husband & I usually dine at the lounge, but for fathers Day I made reservations in the dining room. I now believe that the lounge menu is better as far as quantity of food. Yes the food was very tasty but the portion was small especially the vegetables. I had to ask for a second serving which was still a small serving. I suggest that they don't fancy cut the vegetables, but give larger portions. OK so the meat & fish were reasonable size. As always the Molly is very relaxing ,enjoyable, and the scenic view is just great."

  • "Is only one part of a great dinner here. The staff is amazingly attenttive and friendly. The food was delicious and nicely presented. We went with friends before a show at the iconic Count Basie theatre... it is a 10 minute stroll from the restaurant to the theatre. I have lived in the area for many years and this was my first time at the Molly Pitcher. It was a good choice."

  • "We were celebrating my daughter's graduate school graduation! We had a table by the window, and it looked out over the water. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and a perfect spot for a special occasion! We were there for lunch. Appetizers, soup and salads were our starters. We each had a different entree. Everyone enjoyed their food! Highly recommend and can't wait to return!"

  • "As part of our Dinner Club one couple must choose a restaurant that the other two couples have not been to. It was our turn to pick and we decided to go back to The Molly Pitcher where we had our wedding some 27 years ago. Though I was a little concerned because I had only been there previously for either a Wedding or Banquet. Needless to say no one in Our Group this past weekend was disappointed with our choice for dinner. Everything was excellent right down to the desserts, and the view from our table was great as well!"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "The food in the Dining Room was the worst food we have had for dinner in years. Limited menu - bland - tasteless. It was also our anniversary and that was not even noted. Never again!"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "During my last visit I arranged two, business meetings, one at lunch and thereafter at the bar. The food and service are excellent. I can't say enough good about the Molly Pitcher Inn. I happened to hold an amazing wedding reception there last November 30th. Everything at the Molly Pitcher Inn is first-class as are the management and staff. As I walked though the lobby one of the staff members who had taken room service to my room, who's name I could sadly not recall, said "hello" I said hello back and he said "I remember you from the wedding, you were in room ..." He later said with a big smile that it was his one-year anniversary of working at the Molly Pitcher that day. You can't buy that pride, you create it! "

  • "It was so nice to have delicous food, served attentively while taking in the beautiful scenary of the Navesink River. We didn't have to yell over unnecsssary Muzak or stuggle for elbow room with a table that was set too close to ours. The spacious and serene dining room lend themselves well to a gracious dining experience."

Service was not as good as this place deserves. Waiter took our order and the rest of the service came from a disinterested wait staff. Had to constantly ask for bread butter water etc."

  • "We started a quiet family mid-week dinner with spicy & sweet Bloody Mary oyster shots and a warm and herbed butternut squash soup - perfectly seasoned. Entrees of cut-with-a-butter-knife short ribs w/ scallion risotto, comfort food chicken pot pie, and rigatoni with chicken sausage were all perfectly prepared and seasoned. Desserts appealed to the chocoholic with gooey chocolate lava cake, crackle-topped creme brulee and an apple cobbler perfectly balanced with fruit, oats & brown sugar. Fantastic food, excellent attentive service and a relaxed atmosphere on a weeknight!"

  • "Lovely dining room. Attentive and cordial waitstaff. I had the grilled pork chop which was cooked to perfection, and so tender, it practically melts in your mouth. My wife had the seafood pot pie, which was served in a flaky puff pastry. The shrimp and scallops were in a delicious bisque sauce. The surprise was the sesame crabmeat with wasabi appetizer, which was perfect. A wonderful place for a celebration, or for a special night out."
