The house salad is amazing and the food is very well prepared. The rack of lamb and italian food was delicious. The host Frank, could not have been nicer. Parking lot available . I would return again.
Love the atmosphere and food is consistently very good! Chef Jimmy does a fabulous job! Highly recommend!
Excellent as always. We always come back and get amazing food. We’ve never been disappointed.
The menu was extensive and the food was terrific. We will definitely return.
Very nice atmosphere - love the decor - excellent food
Great food cooked to order. Frank the manager and staff do a great job. Chef /Owner comes out to check on each table. Great place doing it the right way.
Excellent local restaurant. Good food, good service and good atmosphere
We were frequent customers of the chefs previous restaurant Anthony’s Brielle House. We enjoy his menu and the preparation of his dishes. The owner was very friendly and the staff very attentive.
My only suggestion would be to have a larger dish to plate the wonderful salad 👍🏼
The food was very good and the servings were enough for two meals! Our waitress the evening we went was extremely attentive without being annoying. The ambiance is ok but it was a bit loud and it wasn’t full.
I would suggest they add a small salad to go with the entree; just a nice touch.
Extremely loud! Unable to hear my husband sitting next to me. Appetizer was cold and dinner had no flavor and plating wasn’t very appetizing saw waitress when ordering and didn’t see her til asking for bill. Won’t be going back
Food was amazing along w the service!
Making reservations for our next dinner date
Great food! Great atmosphere and Frank the host is very helpful. Try the Jimmy salad. It’s tremendous!! And the Rigatoni Zingara is outstanding as well.
Service was excellent as was the food!
First time there and it was AMAZING! Huge portions and everything was delicious 😉
Food was truly outstanding. We had a young waiter, who was still learning, so the service was a bit wanting. But, NOT a reason to complain. We will Definitely be back!!! Loved it.
What a find! From the host to showed us to table, to the young man who brought us our water, to the our waitress...The service was impeccable. Everyone was so very friendly! The chef was gracious and friendly and cooked up long hot and potatoes that were perfect! Our meals were cooked to perfection and the portions were very generous. I am looking forward to having dinner here again many, many times.
Food is amazing and the service is awesome. Can’t wait to go back again! As relaxed an atmosphere as you could ask for.
Loved the twilight menu. Inexpensive and tasty. Will return to experience more dishes. Excellent service and friendly staff.
8 of us went to dine at the coal house bistro and every meal was amazing. We loved the Jimmy salad
and especially the scallop special. Highly recommend.
Food was fabulous. Friendly atmosphere. Great place for any occasion.
Simply amazing. Chef Jim Vena outdid himself, as always. The “18 Hour Sunday Gravy” is spectacular...combining heartiness with subtlety in the same great dish. It brings you right back to mama’s kitchen for sure! Huge portions and exceptional service made this family holiday dinner one for the books. If you go, be sure to order the breaded artichoke in lemon cream sauce appetizer...just wonderful. This will be our go-to in Point Pleasant Beach for years to come!
We went for dinner on New Year's Eve, had a 7:00 reservation, by 7:10 we were seated. The food & service were wonderful -- they had a full menu. We weren't rushed & completely enjoyed the evening. Highly recommend this restaurant.
A new gem for us! Excellent food and service. Was fan of Belmont for years ... Savoy and Shrimp beeps .. brought me back. Go there !!! You will not be disappointed.
We have been to Coal House three times now. The last visit was Christmas eve. We had 11 in our party. The food was exceptional and the wait staff was very friendly and accommodating. The chef/ owner Jimmy walked around the entire night and made sure everyone was pleased with the meal and service. This was 1 of the best Christmas eve meals spent out at a restaurant. We will definitely be back soon!!
We had a wonderful Christmas Eve there. Our server was great and the rest of the staff was excellent. And the food was great! Very pleasant and beautifully decorated atmosphere.
love the bistro
Twilight menu is a great value and food quality is excellent.
This was my 3rd time eating at the bistro. I love love this place. The service is impeccable starting with the matradee right down to the bussers. The food. AMAZING! Jimmy is an outrageous chef. I will be visiting this place again and again. Always a wonderful experience.
Chef Jimmy is very skilled. He came out of the kitchen to greet his diners and was very gracious and friendly. We loved our dinner at Coal House!
Made reservations for a group of 10. Table was set and waiting for us. Frank welcomed us and made sure we were well served. Our server, Cat, was attentive and took great care of us. Food was terrific and plentiful. Lots of leftovers were taken home. A gem in Pt. Pleasant Beach.
Very good meal! Loved the Sicilian meatballs with Sunday Gravy special. Salad, soup, entree, desert all good! Definitely coming back!
Unfortunately the meal I ordered was very disappointing. It was the braised pork. The pork was not braised. Others in my party were extremely happy with the quality of their cowboy pork chop and snapper. They all said they were really delicious. It took over 20 mins for our plates to be taken from the table. The chef apologized and our complaint was well handled.
Excellent dining experience! Our meal was beyond delicious! Autgentic Italian Food! Highly recommend for food and service! Best ever!
Delicious food with huge portions. Will definitely go back.
We were so pleased with our dining experience. The staff was friendly, the food was outstanding, the service was impeccable.
We will certainly be making plans to go back.
Host was very welcoming. Food was delicious. Service was very good. Place looks great.
First time here. Food was fast and tasty. Looking forward to our next visit
Great food and service. Everything was fresh and delicious. Can't wait to go back!
From start to finish, everything was top shelf. This was our third visit and it has become a favorite. The Italian Nachos are a must !!
