The main course was brought out before we were finished with our apps! The waitress wasn’t too attentive and we had to keep asking for drink refills. Felt very rushed and they weren’t even busy

Been here several times now and have never been disappointed. Something on the menu for everyone. I tried the short ribs... WOW! Packed with flavor, huge cut and cooked to perfection ... guacamole appetizer was fresh and full of flavor... Waiter was super attentive and very personable... nice drink selections and a nice dessert menu as well.

Robison Ale House is always a safe bet for a very comfortable and relaxed dinner experience. One of my favorite spots in Red Bank!!

The Robinson Ale House is one of my favorite restaurants in Red Bank. Their short rib entree is fabulous!

Great service. The food was ok. We had higher expectations. We only had appetizers and dessert. Appetizers - not much crab in the crab cakes, the cheese steak spring rolls had more of a pulled pork texture, the nachos and buffalo shrimp were good. Dessert - overcooked dry chocolate chip cookie in a skillet with ice cream and the peanut butter cheesecake special was good but more mousse-like than cheesecake. I think there is good potential here and will try again. Perhaps their dinner options are better.

I ordered the "Boomer Hamburger". It had plenty of sauteed mushrooms & onions, but you could hardly see or taste the hamburger. It had to be extremely thin. I felt I was eating a mushroom & onion sandwich. The tomato soup that came with it was okay. The service was very good. I will probably not go here again. There are many restaurants to choose from in Red Bank & unfortunately I won't be coming back to this one.

Food was great, service was great, dessert was not very good. I got the banana’s foster and it was just overripe banana in a bowl of liquid. It was not a thick sauce like it should have. Not tasty at all. Next time we come it will be for the savory food not dessert.

Sat outside and was able to get a table in a reasonable amount of time considering you can’t make a request for outdoor dining when you make a reservation. Service was very good and we enjoyed our meal- the salmon was cooked well and the apps were tasty and shareable. Would like to go back and sit inside as we liked the lounge atmosphere of the restaurant.

First time there. Reservation was for 7:45. Got seated right away but then waited way to long for any service. I drink Moscato wine. Was told they don't sell wine by the glass. Only had it by bottle $40. Was then told I could buy a glass of Reisling or Prosecco.

Food was good but nothing special.

Overall ok but service was really bad. Waitress probably had too many tables. We had to wait for water, ice, and our check.

Might try it again but won't be anytime soon. Parking in Red Bank is a challenge too. There was even traffic leaving town at 10:30 at night.

Made a reservation and was sat right away at prime dinner time on a Friday night. The food was great and the price was decent for what we ordered. Outside seating was cute and would be preferred if it wasn’t scorching outside. The inside was very detailed and opened! What a great date night!

Chili was good as was the drinking clams. However, the meatloaf was very disappointing; mushy texture

Service was great also atmosphere, drinks nice selection. Food was a little disappointing, the fish from the fish and chips was bad, prob should’ve just returned it and ordered something else. The good, outside breading was nice and crispy, went well with the dip, pieces were good portions. The bad, some pieces were a little chewy, not the breading but the fish was chewy, some pieces had way to much breading. Was very inconsistent.

Perfect location in the heart of downtown Red Bank. Food is decent. They have outdoor dining which is good if you can stand the trucks going by! Indoor seating is a pub-like atmosphere.

Had dinner there with my wife and my parents. Food was very good, especially the short ribs! Great cocktails, excellent beer list. Our server was friendly, attentive and enthusiastic about the menu. The atmosphere was very comfortable and mellow. I would definitely recommend it and we will be back.

Enjoyed a lovely brunch; only negative was the coffee which wasn't very good. The waitress suggested going to Starbucks rather than ordering coffee.

My wife said Ahi tuna added to beet salad was delicious but In the bowl it was hard to cut. Our guest had mac and cheese with crab he said he enjoyed it. He commented the cheese sauce was better then Tommy’s. My onion soup and burger was excellent. Christina was an attentive server and the manager checked in with us. All around good experience.

We come here a lot and always enjoy our food. I do have one bit of criticism and that is the salmon was a little too salty but otherwise everything was fine!
