    Britney was amazing she gives us such great customer service she remembered what we ate last time we were there three weeks ago and she called our grandson by his name and she kept coming by making us feel at home. The food is so yummy how you can make french fries or Madelines taste that good I don’t know we will be back often

    @rbar_asburypark did it again. Another amazing dinner. Pastrami Steak topped with Crawfish, seared Porkchop cooked to perfection and their wedge is the best anywhere. Oh and their drink specials are a work of art.

    We’ve been coming to R Bar every few months since it opened. Unfortunately, this was likely our last time at R Bar. Food is good, I had the Brick Chicken, my husband had the Fish n Chips. Prices for drinks are outrageous & the bar tenders don’t even fill the jigger when pouring the mixed drinks (we know this because we sat at the bar). For example, one Casamigos tequila (less than 2 oz) was 1/2 the price of the bottle of casamigos. We like to have a drink or two with dinner & the price of drinks makes it not worth it, which kind of ruins the meal itself, especially when it’s not as nice ascetically as it used to be. Since we’ve been coming, we noticed that the ambiance which used to be nice for date nights with dim lighting and tasteful decor has completely changed, with now bright overhead lights remaining on, Christmas lights hanging over the bar, and more of an eclectic vibe overall, it’s just not doing it for us anymore. We have several favorite date night spots, but unfortunately we won’t be back to R Bar and will just stick with our other local favorites instead.

    I don't kno how RBar can get a bad review 🤔. Are we all dining in the same place?? The food is always fresh, it's perfectly cooked to ur liking, the staff couldn't be any friendlier, the bartenders and drinks are amazing. It's one if my favorite places to go. What more can u ask for? They have 2 bars, it's indoor & outdoor, upstairs & downstairs, 2 dining areas, live music. If u haven't been to RBar, give it a try and see for urself.

    This was my second visit to R Bar, I went to see the very entertaining and talented jazz band. I knew better than to get a cocktail, since last time it was all ice for $14.00, barely any liquor, a rip off! This visit when I walked in there was a bad smell, like a plumbing problem. I was going to leave but I wanted to see the band. I got a glass of wine, not good at all, but I didn't want to spend $17 for a decent glass. Food menu sounded ok, but pricey, I don't know why anyone would spend $42 for a pork dish and smell sewage and sip on a $14 glass of packed, crushed ice. So many good placed in AP, I won't be back to R bar. If I want to see the band, I will go to brunch at Porta.
