I love the food and the atmosphere here. Never disappointed!
Good food and good service. We enjoyed the cocktails we had prior to dinner.
My wife and I went to The American Hotel for our anniversary. It’s one of our favorite restaurants in the Freehold area. Our meal was great. The service was great. We really enjoyed our night.
Found this on opentable while looking for a place to have thanksgiving with my family ( a 94 yo in a wheel chair, 4 other adults and 2 kids under 4). it more then exceeded our expectations - besides everyone there being accommodating with high chairs, wheel chairs, etc. the staff was so attentive. the food --- unbelievable. I cook and struggle going out for holidays - I think that the meal was as good if not better then if I cooked myself. They had a great amount of options for kids - then the dessert table.. unreal. overall just a fantastic experience. We were fortunate enough to spend some time with the owner of the hotel - we kept telling him how happy we were to have found this gem!
My family took me out to celebrate my birthday. It was great. We usually come for Easter brunch but it was nice to come not as crowded!
My only complaint is the dessert table could have been better
Last minute we decided to book a table here with another couple. The drinks were great, the burger is the best. You just can’t go wrong with the American Hotel. If you just want to hang at the bar or grab a bite to eat it’s a friendly lively place with good food.
Wednesdays are always the night to go to Market Yard Grill as all bottles of wine are half-price and there are seafood specials.
Tonight, our server, Gary, provided EXCELLENT service tonight....the best I have encountered in the past 5 years!! He was both engaging and efficient .... Our glasses were never empty and dishes/cutlery were always fresh.
All management and staff super friendly
Special fall menu items highly recommended. Server very friendly and helpful. Only suggestion for improvement is the length of time to deliver food.
Our group had an enjoyable dinner and would definitely return. Never disappointed and always accommodating. Great food choices! Kudos to the chef!
First time here. Calamari app very large portion good thing we shared. Salmon,sauerbraten and Wiener schnitzel all very good. Nice waitress and quiet for a change
I thought it was great outdoor seating, but priced alitte.high for the amount of food
I was not impressed. The restaurant was relatively empty on Sunday @6:30 pm. It took 3 tries for my drink order yo come properly. The rare tuna came out too well done for one of my friends and potatoes were served to another when they ordered vegetables instead of potatoes. The restaurant made good on serving the correct food. They made no attempt at substantially apologizing by comping a meal or even a dessert. I see no reason for the multiple errors affecting 3 out of 6 diners in one party.
Always great food. The servers are attentive and the chef will make your dish to order. The live music is always a bonus!
Great food and selection!
First time customers but we will be back. Great food choices and my husband and I are both very happy with our meals. Service was exceptional.
This place can be very noisy on weekends and Thursday nights. But on a Sunday evening it is only modestly busy and very nice and relaxing. Good for Sunday family dinner.
Great as always. The menu is huge with many options. Great cocktails, appetizers, and main courses.
Excellent food as always, especially the seafood raw bar for two. Fantastic friendly service from Jameson.
Great food and great service
The service was excellent. Ordered the lamb special medium rare but was more medium and cold. My husband had the braised ribs. Mashed potatoes were excellent. Portions were a nice size but a little pricey. Must have the bread pudding dessert.
Nice place for a date dinner. A little expend.
We celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary on Saturday. Braised short ribs were excellent and so was the fra diavalo. The appetizer of shrimp and lobster was definitely worth it and the service was very good. We would recommend this restaurant. Nice atmosphere too. Outdoor seating is also available.
We are big fans of this restaurant Sunday thru Thursday, when the service is great, food is wonderful and you can carry on a conversation in a casual, yet upscale, environment.
My wife and I have been to the American Hotel Market Yard Grille many times. Each time, good food and good service.
We have frequented the American Hotel Market Grill for years and have always had a great experience and a great meal. The service was outstanding and all servers were attentive to our needs with the host stopping by along with other restaurant management to check on our meal and experience.
A little noisy so if you are there to have a quite conversation perhaps do not sit in the main dining area but overall everyone seemed to be having a good time and noticed that when the entrées came the table conversation ended and everyone enjoyed their meal.
Pecan Chicken Salad was excellent, service was exceptional.
Very good food.
Hadn’t been there in many years and was glad to see that the food was as good as I remember. Also, half price bottles of wine on Wednesday night.
The food was prepared with great flavor. The soft shell crabs were excellent, so were the lobster wontons.
Little on the pricey side but you do get what you pay for. Food was excellent, the service was excellent. Good night out and worth the little bit more
My salmon was just fair. Lamb chops were less then average with no seasoning to taste. The only good thing was the waiter. We won’t be back any time soon.
Our visit here was on a busy Saturday night but service and food were above average for this hotel restaurant. Very busy Bar scene too, with an older crowed.
They offered a long list of daily specials, of which one was soft shell crabs, that I chose and they were excellent. They do have a larger choice of items then I would have expected on there menu and everything that our group ordered, they did enjoy. We will be back.
Once again we were not disappointed from the drinks to our dinner everything was perfect
We went for Fathers Day. Food was outstanding. We were treated like royalty.
Brunch for Father's Day. Market yard Grille sticks to a very traditional menu. Heavy with cheeses, bacon, sausage and some standard breakfast and lunch fares. Tired antipasto display. There was enough to satisfy a healthier, more informed consumer, but nevertheless disappointing. They need to emphasis more fresh whole foods, fruit and veges, dishes not laden in sauces or cheese. They need to reinvent themselves.
We came for brunch on Father’s Day and it was absolutely delicious. So many options to choose from and all very nicely presented. There was also a wonderful man playing a keyboard and singing like an angel. It was so nice, we will definitely go back
Our first time and it was a great evening! We were early for our reservation so we went and sat at the bar. Excellent strong martinis. Had the Hendricks with cucumber it was so good. The lobby and bar is very nice was surprised how beautiful it is.
The food was excellent! We had the Seafood Cocktail platter it was so go! We sat outside for dinner. It was the perfect day to have dinner outside.
Definitely a gem hiding in Freehold.
We enjoyed our Saturday evening outing here overall. Menu selection was very good, something for everyone. Portions were generous. Filet mignon ordered by wife and me with differing requests on temperature both came about a notch too cooked. Both daughters ordered Clams and linguini and the Salmon respectively. Both enjoyed immensely. Appetizers and desserts were both great. Rolls in basket were over warmed and tough to bite. Server Leslie was sweet and attentive. We didn't feel rushed and had a nice celebration and enjoyed the ambience other than a table two over which had 4 kids under 4 years old laying down on chairs and just being preschoolers. No fault of the restaurant just a wildcard of today's dining experience.
Menu is a bit pricey and the food was just okay. The service was excellent. It was a very lively crowd on a Saturday night. A good place to come with friends.
