Really enjoyed our dinner at The Robinson Ale House. Great options to accommodate all 5 of us - from great burgers to fine dinners. Service was great also. Would recommend for a fun night out.

Atmosphere urban chic and earthy elements make a for a comfortable few hours to share a good meal with a friend. Waiter was fabulous, food and drinks excellent. Moderately priced. LOVED upholstered booth seating, A+. I would suggest there not be 4 young girls at the Hostess Station all at the same time for over 15 minutes while I waited for my person.

Made reservations through OpenTable and upon arrival our table was ready, no waiting. The server allows time for conversation, starters, and drinks before taking dinner orders. This was much appreciated.

I have had a wonderful time and a wonderful meal at RAH in the past but the evening we went was pretty lousy. The chicken wings appetizer was great as usual but the skirt steak was unimpressive and the fish and chips were soggy with cold fries, as if they had been sitting under a heat lamp way too long before going out to the table. Our server was unsmiling to the point of occasionally seeming sullen. We were torn between being disgusted with how she was behaving or staging an intervention because she might be clinically depressed. If she is a person going through a bad time, we don't want to kick her while she's down but if that was her typical behavior she needs some serious re-training and supervision. She was hardly audible, not at all welcoming and brought us the check without asking if we wanted dessert or coffee. All in all a deeply unsatisfying and unduly expensive meal out. We won't be back.

This was my first time at the Ale House. We had a 6PM Sat night reservation for 4. Seating was prompt. The service and food were both excellent. The restaurant was unable to prepare the pork chop special which was disappointing for early on a w/e night, but everything else was great. I highly recommend the spinach and brie stuffed chicken with the Robinson Salad. The rest of my party enjoyed the steak fajita and salmon. We will definitely go again.

Service was great. Food was greasy and over cooked. Table next to us order same thing and it looked great. Kitchen needs to be consistant and not send out over cooked greasy food hoping customer won’t complain.

The salmon Niçoise salad was fantastic. I just returned from France and this salad was as good or better than the authentic french niçoise. I always order salads when I eat out and this one was top notch.

Making reservations on line was so very easy (just be sure to select the correct number of diners I missed that & ended up calling to correct) The Meal & Dessert was very good. I would recommend to others. We had Fish & Chips, Salmon, Crab Cakes, Pan Fried Trout and Salad with Salmon. For dessert we had Rice Pudding, Cheesecake and the Birthday boy shared the Chocolate Chip Cookie with his sister. His sister being employed in the restaurant/catering biz said she had better but it was ok. I would love to go back again someday.

We were down in Red Bank for the day from NYC. We'd been to Robinson Ale House previously and had a good experience so we decided to celebrate my husband's birthday there. He had the fish tacos, I had the Robinson's salad with grilled chicken and my teenage son's both had burgers. We all really enjoyed our meals. With it being a 90-degree summer Sunday, there weren't too many people in the restaurant, but we didn't mind since that meant we got great service. Would definitely go again.

Great burger special! Solid fries. Delicious meal. The apps were ample although watch out if you order the calamari (there are some seriously spicy peppers mixed in!). But delicious nonetheless.
I had a special (prime rib burger!) which was fantastic. Couldn’t finish it it was so large. Truffle fries!? Wow Yum.
Highly recommended!
Great service.
Great draft beer selection.

The restaurant is light filled and pretty. However the food was not good. One person in my party asked for an appetizer , it was burnt. Another person asked for a burger medium rare, that too was burnt. The dinner salad had barely any lettuce . This was not the first time that salad had barely any lettuce. That is a lot of money to spend on basically appetizer portion. If we had received food that was cooked well and was what ordered then I would not mind paying what we spent. However, I am was very disappointed with the food for the third time trying the restaurant. I would have a drink at the bar. That’s what I would recommend .

This restaurant was very good although I thought the portions on some meals could have been a little better. There was a sliced steak on the menu and it was a few pieces on top of sliced bread. For the amount we paid for the dish, that should have been a nice chunk of steak and was disappointed.

We have been to Robinson's a number of times for lunch, dinner and also for just a drink and a snack. This particular visit was for Mother's Day. Everything about our visit was outstanding. Our waiter (Joe) was a wonderful host and provided great service. The food was all done to perfection and everyone's order was captured accurately. We love coming to Robinson's and we can easily recommend this establishment - our favorite of all the local McLoone offerings. Come to Robinson's and you will not be disappointed.
