Excellent meal right on the boardwalk in Asbury Park!
Our server Isaiah was Fantastic… food was great. Will definitely return
Celebration for daughter’s band
Burgers are always so good. I should have stuck with them. I ordered chicken Cobb salad and the chicken was like a hockey puck. Completely dried out, hard, and obviously had been just sitting around. The worst part was that kitchen had to cut it into slices, which had to be difficult, so they were aware how hard and dried out it was but still served it. Everything else was good, drinks, service, wings, and of course, burgers.
There was a bit of confusion over our reservation with the indoor and outdoor hostesses. Once we spoke to the manager everything was good.
The food is always solid and fresh. The grill cheese bar was a new try for one of our party and that was good too.
Always like going to Robinson in AP as the waitresses are top notch.
Birthday dinner , amazing prime rib burger and cheesesteak egg rolls.
We eat in restaurants about 3 nights/week. This was the worst experience we’ve ever had. The cheesesteak spring roll appetizer, tasted like a frozen product that they threw into a fryer. I ordered the seafood risotto. It looked like a bowl of sloppy soup. Very unappetizing! My girlfriend ordered a steak without any sauce or toppings. It arrived drenched in sauce so we sent it back. She ordered the steak medium rare. The second one arrived well done. We sent that back. The third steak arrived and was raw in the middle at which time, we asked for a check and left without either of us having dinner. The chef should be ashamed to send any of that food out of the kitchen.
The only positive thing was the nice waiter that served us and continually apologized and let us know that there were many complaints that night.
Horrible experience every time. At least they’re consistent.
Greg is a great manager who handles issues well. Jonathan has no patience and was unprofessional.
Open Table is welcome to call or contact me to discuss.
Very below par.
Many better options in town.
For the prices, it’s very mediocre. Cocktail was undrinkable. Burger was tasty, place looked nice. But you can do far better in Asbury
We've eaten here before and enjoyed it, but in Sat, the menu seemed very limited and all 6 of us felt that the food was much less than what we expected and what we remembered from previous visits
My first visit to this restaurant after having tried their other location in Red Bank. Service was excellent and we enjoyed both our app as well as our entrees. The short ribs were very good. Will definitely go back.
Casual meal outside on a pleasant evening in mid September. Burgers - beef and black bean - with fries or sweet potato fries filled the bill. Smooth fast service and good food on the boardwalk overlooking the beach.
Outstanding food as usual and at a great value. Have not had a bad appy or dinner in many visits. Mixed drinks were a disappointment- weak. Service was very good and staff very pleasant
Isaiah our server was fabulous! Personable, professional and very accommodating! Would request his area on return back! Lobster Mac n cheese definitely not worth $28! It was overpriced pasta. Hardly any lobster. Burgers, salad and apps otherwise good.
Waited for awhile before a waiter came to us. Several tables that came later got served quickly. My chicken meal is average but the lobster roll is ok.
The food and service were great. The place is very loud. This app has now lost 2 reservations on me, and both times the restaurant was willing to accommodate my wife and I. Call them directly for reservations.
Very friendly staff. Great food
birthdays are made for robinson ale house!!
Our server was hit with a large party of 8 and us within minutes of each other and she spent all night trying to keep up. I also suspect she had tables inside as well. The food was okay but it was definitely over priced.
It was fair. Food was ok.
The food was so delicious and the service outstanding. Plus, what a beautiful view of the ocean.
Food was ok, had to send back some fish that didn’t taste right. Service was very good, staff very friendly and attentive. Dining room very warm, like AC didn’t work.
Our waitress was hysterical! The food was amazing ! It just took a long time for the bar to serve drinks. A very long time. My only gripe! I will absolutely come back
The cocktails are delicious. The menu had options for vegetarians, which is very appreciated. The service was perfect and the food was delicious. I will definitely come back again.
Hostess and manager were very kind and accommodating!!!
Fantastic late Saturday afternoon in Asbury. Our server was wonderful, gave us great recommendations and was attentive to all of our needs. Cocktails were fantastic. My mojito was spot on. Very good tap beer selection. My steak sandwich was delicious. The shrimp guacamole is a must get for the table.
Service was excellent attentive and paid attention to detail. Food was perfect. We will be back again
Quality service in a great atmosphere.
The food was excellent. I had the NY Strip, cooked perfectly to my liking. Met my expectations for the price paid. Wife had a pork chop also wonderfully cooked and prepared. Service was also very good after a slow start, the waitress wound up to be super. Only negative was that the sound level was indeed "energetic", but I knew that going in so I hung in there and savored the food more than I indulged in quality conversation! Were it not for the noise, this is a 5-star restaurant.
The hostess sat us immediately upon arrival. Our server, Tara was excellent. We got the cajun swordfish and pork chop. Both dinners were super delicious. The cheesecake was rich, creamy and so worth the calories!!!
Pretzels were soggy in butter. Ruben bread was soggy. Steak sandwich was overdone and chewy. Onion rings were greasy and soggy. Salad was good but it was served with no dressing and took 20mins for the waitress to get dressing. Bill was $200 and we won’t be coming back.
Good restaurant for just cocktails and appetizers. I wouldn’t waste my money on the entrée dishes. Also the crowd can get noisy once the evening gets going.
Food was really good as was the beer selection. It’s a great place to sit outside and take in the sounds and sights of Asbury. Importantly our server Julia was EXCELLENT- attentive, very nice and service with a smile. Well done Julia!
First time at Robinson's in Asbury, have been to Red Bank many times pre-COVID. The food seemed better then I remember. We did have one issue with the lobster dip appetizer - it was watery - but they took it back and took it off our bill. For appetizers the cheesesteak eggrolls were our favorite, we also enjoyed the calamari and buffalo shrimp. Three of us got burgers for dinner, one the airline chicken, all were good. Cocktails were excellent, as was the service. We sat outdoors with a view of the beach, it was lovely.
Inside was cool and relaxing. The meatloaf was light and delicious. Fried zucchini for appetizer was excellent.
Fish not that good
It was our anniversary and our 1st time there and it wasn't a great experience. The drinks we got were great and the cheesecake rolls were delicious! However, our service wasn't that good. We did wait a really long time between our server ordering drinks and apps to seeing her all after we finished our drinks and 1 appetizer. We never got a chance to put our dinner orders in as we waiting there for an hour for her to even come to see us to get our order. It was busy I get it but not too crazy. What is crazy, is how she didn't even check on us after we received our appetizers. It was probably about 15/20 minutes after we were done when she came by asking if we liked our meal and we didn't even have dinner yet. We left after that without ordering dinner. Place is really nice on the water but we left unsatisfied.
The service and food was very good, thank you…
Great service and location. Knows how to keep a reservation too!
My family was in AP for 4 days & at least 4 people ate there every day. Each meal & service staff was great. Able to get reservations squared away each time. Food variety was perfect.
