Nice casual spot on Broad St. for some cold beer and good food
We visited for lunch on a Thursday afternoon.

It’s a fairly large restaurant with ample seating inside or out on the patio.

Everyone from the Hostess to our server Alex was very friendly and helpful.

There’s a great selection of beer to choose from.

I’d definitely go there again.

Was a really nice dinner. Only issue was we sat in bar area and it took 15 minutes for waitress to greet us. And she was standing at back corner of bar laughing with other waitresses. Otherwise excellent

Really nice spot in downtown Red Bank. Kinda a hybrid between a nice pub and high middle class dining .
Service was very good. Friendly and very attentive.
Food was very good from start to finish.
I would warn that the price- point is a little high for what it is, but nothing terrible.
Overall a really excellent experience.

I have been to Robinsons Red Bank before. I had the short rib bolognese for the first time. It looks amazing sitting there on the plate. However, the short rib just really overwhelms the pasta. Plus, it was really bland. this is a dish that should pop in your mouth, but didn't. Just a little salt in preparation would go a long way. Will be back.

The food was just okay. The avocado BLT was pretty good but the bottom piece of toast was soaked in butter and the top piece of toast had mayonnaise on it which I asked to leave off. My Caesar salad was drowning in dressing. Nice atmosphere and nice waitress.

I have lunch in the bar area here during the week quite often and it's always great food with good service. This experience; however, was nothing like that. My daughter and I sat outside for a late Sunday lunch. We waited 10 minutes to finally have a server bring water and take drink orders. An hour later our food finally arrived. No offer to make any accommodations or apology from any manager. Our server said they had new kitchen staff and blamed that for the delay. If this had been my first experience, I would never go back. I hope they are able to get the proper staff back in place soon.

Overall it's an OK spot. Burrata had NO taste whatsoever, more like cottage cheese. Wedges and Caesar salad were good, but c'mon who can't do that. Fish and Chips were best thing on our table.

Trying a new place before attending a show at count Basie. We only had one hour to order and eat. The menu has something for everyone. The service was focused attentive and well trained. One advantage of Bering seated in the back when short on time is you are closer to the kitchen! Everyone enjoyed their entrees like fajitas, burger, salad and black bean burger although the fries could be a tad warmer but not a downer on the overall experience. I would recommend trying any one of the Robinson Ale houses at the Jersey shore!
