The service was great and our server was so nice. The service was fast, and we had a large party and everything was correct. I had the Italian Beef and it was a little overcooked, but still enjoyable. The cheeseburger egg rolls are incredible and highly recommended. The nachos were really good as well. They have a good select of beers and cocktails. It is kid friendly as well.

We really enjoy The Robinson Ale House. This was our second visit since outdoor dining was opened up, and our table was waiting for us even though we arrived a little early. The restaurant does a great job managing reservations. Service super friendly and prompt as usual. Food and drinks always great!

We had excellent service. Our server was Denise and she was wonderful. It started to rain and the hostess right away pulled over another umbrella so we wouldn’t get wet!
Good came out hot and we were not rushed at all!

Such a fun and lively spot to have dinner during this time. Red Bank's pedestrian plaza is a must-visit. Everyone was happy to be out (even when the thunderstorm started!) The music and atmosphere were lively, the service was great and the food was excellent. People were very respectful of social distancing and wearing masks.

1 star was given as I appreciate them moving my time around due to weather.
My veggie burger was lacking, dry even and didnt have cheese. I asked for onion rings and got fries and when I asked for the onion rings I was already too far into my burger to care. Pretty sure the onion rings are supposed to be 4ish dollars to swap for fries but the bill showed 6 dollars. My waitress checked in on us once (during apps) for a half second but she was so busy running around busing her own tables that she never asked if I wanted a second drink or how my actual meal was which bothers me mainly cuz I was with a young lady who really wanted salt for her risotto. So for my birthday I got 1/4 service, a wobbly table and 1 mixed drink. This is why I asked for pete to be my server. That man was a pro. And too go back a second I saw workers lazily staring into the street who easily could have been busing but who cares cause as I write this I realize my waitress still would have ignored me as I saw her head over to multiple tables multiple times. My best friend was gonna rent out this place to celebrate his engagement and I will 100% be getting him to go anywhere else. And for the love of god SALT THE ZUCCHINI FRIES!

Unpleasant place to dine. Wait staff and bar tenders were like zombies- no energy- very unhappy. From the time we sat it started out bad and only got worse
Wrong drinks - didn’t receive a drink- bad drink - waiter very short with us. It was my daughters birthday. I ordered her a dessert With a candle - wrong one came out And he just put it on the table and walked away. We didn’t realize it was there ! People in our party ordered the warm cookie - came out cold. Wouldn’t go back

Server was lackluster. Waitress forgot beer refill, forgot to come back to ask about dessert menu she gave, and her attitude was blunt/depressed. (she wasn’t weeded or busy- she just wasn’t paying attention). Her attitude was clearly “don’t want to be here.” Disappointing.

Yummy comfort food. We had full rack of ribs and chicken fricassee. The ribs were deliciously smothered in bbq sauce. The chicken was tender and mashed potatoes creamy. I had the brownie sundae for dessert. It was ok. The dining room was busy, but our server was attentive. This is a great place for a meal!
