Nicholas Barrel & Roost
Now, with Barrel & Roost, the couple strips off the white tablecloths and serves up a bold new menu: made-from-scratch food that’s crazy-delicious, yet entirely accessible any night of the week. Set in a newly redesigned modern farmhouse interior, Barrel & Roost is just the place to enjoy Chef Driven Comfort Food with family, old friends, or a grab a drink at the bar for date night!
Bok Choy & Wild Mushroom, Smoked Shallot Cream Sauce
Maine Lobster Roll
Fresh Pulled Lobster Salad, Lemon Mayo, Butter Toasted Bun
Excellent as usual.
Amazing food, fantastic ambiance, attentive staff.
Once again Nicholas delivers a spectacular evening. Great bourbon,apps and entrees!! Not to mention the banana split for desert. Thanks for making my wife’s birthday one to remember.
The only issue was that there were soooooo many great choices and we thought we'd start with apps and continue to stuffed. The waitress told us that all food items must be placed at the same tome not allowing us to determine if we wanted to have salad and apps then a lot more apps or an entrees....... and if we ordered entrees to start cold we add on an app?
Is this cover protocol? We ordered lightly and wished we could have added.....
Service was excellent.
Food was delicious
And I love the new outdoor lights.
Loved the new Barrel & Roost and will definitely go again!
Delicious beet salad starter, grossly over salted pizza, uninspired and limited desserts. How the mighty have fallen.
Food was beyond amazing along with our drinks. Service was great and all staff was very friendly.
Great brunch, nice dining atmosphere. Only complaint is the service and bussing stations get crammed with servers gossiping which can be distracting (especially when being seated right next to them).
Mothers day. Only a brunch menu at 3:30 on a special occasion day. They would not even accommodate us with a grilled chicken add on with a salad. Expensive for nothing. Will not be coming back.
Our first dining experience at the new iteration of Nicholas, it was delightful.
Nicholas at Red Banks comes up with one remarkable disk after another, for any occasion. It is a place for family time at the restaurant or enjoy a special dinner. I am happy to return to Nicholas for their nice people, great food, and a pleasing gourmet time. From their “Buffalo Bleu” to theirs “Grilled Swordfish”, we enjoy every time!
Fantastic experience. Our food was wonderful and the staff was polite and engaging. We can't wait for our next visit!
Excellent food, excellent service and lovely, friendly waitress. Love everything about Nicholas Barrel & Roost!!
This was my wife and I first time back since the Covid restrictions began and the completion of the renovations to make Barrel and Roost. We went to celebrate Mother's Day. The place looks great. There was plenty of spacing, indoors and out doors; we got to sit at the new bar. Food and service was great and the staff was great.
I complemented Nicholas on how everything looked, the new menu and told him we missed his wine tasting events. He told me the good news that he is working on bringing them back.
Food and service was fantastic! We had a wonderful Mother's Day brunch. Everyone loved it!
Excellent food. Much more modernized from the original Nicholas restaurant. American menu. Very large bar area had re-opened. Restaurant was quite busy but would definitely recommend (except didn't understand why I needed to pay $6 for 4 pieces of bread).
Our server was excellent, food was delicious and music was the best!
I think the concept is great and they did an amazing job with the reno, but if I compare to similar concepts, albeit not identical it’s a step behind in food quality related to $$&. But I would still recommend, maybe I expected more from Nicholas
Waiter was great atmosphere is fantastic! Good, delicious!!
Very nice atmosphere and great food. Can’t wait to go back to try brunch as well as burgers They look amazing
We had dinner at the bar and it was great! Tasty drinks, great food, service and ambiance. Definitely will be returning!
First time at the new Nicholas - drinks were the same caliber and food was less formal - but still great.
Overall the food was the best part of the experience. The bartender barely spoke to us, except when it was time to drop the check. Our cocktails were OK, however they seemed lacking based on the description and price. Food portions were small despite being tasty. Very disappointing to say the least.
Great food, great drinks and great service. Never disappoints.
One of the best burgers I have ever eaten - outstanding. Everything was fresh, homemade and delicious. Our server was right on the ball with timing - he was excellent. Highly recommend the restaurant. Loved the decor.
Loved the decor ! Food was great. Wish the menu had more options
Great ambience, bar is gorgeous, good vibes, good variety of menu options. Burgers and pizzas were fabulous; pasta dishes not as impressive.
So great! Highly recommend! Especially the Cheese Curds and Caviar!!
Beautiful place good food and had a lovely time
Celebration Lunch on Cinco de Mayo! Sat at table in bar area, attentive service, excellent food - LOVE the changes that have been made to the restaurant and the menu. Bravo!!
I went to dinner with my family to celebrate a birthday. We have been to Nicholas many times and were eager to experience the great dining and ambiance again. This time, however, was a slight miss in one entree, the lobster/clam chowder, which was room temperature with less chowder. It was, nevertheless a fine experience overall.
After the initial weirdness of being seated at a bar high top after making a dinner reservation, I inquired about it and then we were seated in the dining room... The food was super good; good wine, delicious oysters and amazing seafood dinners, although a bit pricey for the portion size. Also, I did not realize that it was SO family friendly, even the desserts are for kids.
The restaurant was recently renovated and the ambiance was very nice. Decent menu; food was just ok. Very strong flavors and very fatty. Nothing seemed fresh. There are many other restaurants in Monmouth county with far better food.
Great food especially the filet mignon and cocktails!
Wonderful experience.. with Edward and Ryan we can’t wait to come back
Went for Brunch. Food is very good. Prices are appropriate for food quality. Service always excellent.
I enjoyed the experience and look forward to my next meal there. I was very impressed with the Bourbon selection.
Pretty good service, but food could have been a bit more flavorful. Avocado toast , gets an A for presentation, but that and the omelettes could have used a little more flavor. #salt/cracked pepper?
