This was my sons 21st birthday. The waiter let us know they didn’t have enough utensils for our appetizers and to share the three we were given.. very odd. He did eventually bring the the other two sets. The dinner entrees were brought out with our appetizers still on the table. He forgot to bring our drinks and then told us it was because, outside people come in so there is a line?? The waiter was clearly overwhelmed and new. The restaurant should have new staff work on a week day not ion a busy Saturday night. We didn’t even bother with dessert.. I never write reviews but this was THAT BAD.. I should have taken my son to a diner.. waste of money.

Great food,service, atmosphere... parking nearby. The ease of access from the rear entrance was a big help to our elderly mom. The Red Bank location light years ahead of the RAH/McCloons in Asbury.

The food was good but I thought a little pricy. I had the pasta special $24.99 but when it came out it was the wrong sauce. Our server was outstanding and had it corrected immediately. Everyone was very accommodating so it was a very enjoyable night. BTW once the sauce was corrected, the food was very good

Hands down the best short ribs I’ve ever had. Specifically came to Robinson Ale House for the short ribs for my mom’s birthday. Our waiter was personable and on top of our drinks without hovering. Overall a great experience!

Bus people and servers should wear latex gloves. Particularly since they always have a finger inside the rim of whatever dish they are serving
Tables close
Noise from street annoying

We were outside during the day so can’t speak of any ambiance. The street is closed to traffic which is nice. It was freezing and windy that day so honestly I just wanted the lunch to be over.

The service and food were great tho. They let us move to another table where it had a tiny bit of sun, and the waitress was very nice and understanding about it. Tipped her accordingly. Would definitely comeback, probably dressed in a canadian parka and tall uggs.

We sat outside on the sidewalk. There was a steady parade of pedestrians passing very close to our table, some without masks. We did not feel comfortable dining. Parking was also a major issue. We parked in English Plaza which was always a pay by space. There was a lot of construction and it was unclear what the parking regulations were. The space we were in was not numbered and there was no sign restricting parking. When we returned we had a parking summons on our windshield. A $38.00 fine! Next time we go out to enjoy lunch it will NOT be in Red Bank! Unfortunate because Robinson’s is a nice restaurant and I’m sure they need the revenue in these unprecedented times.

I went with three other friends. I set a reservation for 7:30. I get to the front and am told I will have to wait 15 minutes. That was annoying since we had cut short our beach trip to go across town and not be late since they have only 5 minute grace period. Our waiter was attentive, food came on time. Didnt like the appetizers at all. Devilled eggs had too much mayo and drunken clams had too flavors that tasted odd together. We got our entrees. Only one really like his meal. I thought the ribeye had too many parts on it that tasted smokey and burnt. The wine, cocktail and desert was great! Would go there again but would obviously try different meals

This was our 2nd time at the Robinson Ale House. The food was excellent the first time, but a little off the 2nd time. Food came out quickly and service was outstanding. I will still go back again. Fish taco”s, excellent, burger, so-so.
