                                                              Got the angry lobster special and the lobster tasted frozen and bland. For $50, it was a total rip off. The waitress seemed lost and confused. Told her we had a 7pm show and had to wave her down to pay so we could get there in time. Made a note that it was my husbands birthday in the reservation notes and that was never acknowledged. Super disappointed

                                                              Is Robinson’s Ale House the most exciting, trendy hot spot? No. But they excel at comfortable, versatile, reliably good food and service. You can go with a group and everyone will find something they like. The salmon Niçoise salad is phenomenally delicious, and that’s what I order most often. But once I had the Turkey burger, and it was so good that I went back the next day and had it again. I like the ambiance in the dining room, as well as the bar tables if there’s a game on that we want to watch.

Gave us dessert menu but then never came back to take order so we skipped it. Asked for a booth but got a table instead. Restaurant was drafty.

                                                              The service was very slow, and my order did not come out correctly. We were going to a play so did not have sufficient time to send it back. Overall, we really enjoy this restaurant and have been there many times. This is the first time we had an issue like this.

                                                              Food was good! The service wasn’t as good as we have experienced in past. Our waitress disappeared for awhile without checking in. Appeared there was confusion with the order and we had to ask twice where our food was when we noticed all of the tables around us who were seated way after us received their meals. We had show tickets with plenty of time to spare arriving for reservation a little prior to 1:00. Just made it in time for 3:00 show at count Basie.

                                                              We ate here before a show at the Basie Theater. It happened to be a gorgeous spring night so we ate outside. Great location for this, except street noise was exceptionally loud. Didn’t bother us too much but it was notable - lots of loud cars unnecessarily revving engines and blasting music - not the restaurant’s fault but worth mentioning if you’re looking for a quiet spot. Our server was wonderful and she was hustling to make sure everyone had what they needed - and she did a great job. Food was good & timed well. Wings were a standout. Only complaint about the food was that I ordered the Robinson salad with grilled chicken and the walnuts in it were rancid. I picked them out and the salad was good otherwise. Would definitely come back for the wings and burger and it’s a great spot for drinks outside on a nice night.

                                                              Because it was the Red Bank Street Fair, we made a reservation rather than just show up for lunch. So glad we did as it would have been an hour wait. What we did not factor was the fact that the kitchen would be slow as there were a lot of orders. But it gave us a chance to talk and leisurely enjoy our lunch.
