Very Good but Very Pricey

Went to The American Hotel because my son wanted a steak dinner for his 21st birthday. Not a lot of good options in the Freehold area. The place has been renovated since I was there many years ago. Very nicely done. We were there on a Monday & there weren't a lot of people there so it was... read more

We've been to the Sunday brunch buffet at Market Yard several times now: twice for the regular brunch, and once for Easter. There is a lot to like about it, and we have just a couple of suggestions that would have made our experience even better. What we liked: the $35.00 pp price tag may seem steep, but the raw... More

Nice atmosphere, relaxed. Dinner was perfectly fine, apps, steaks, seafood all well prepared, presented and portions was ample. Best of all was that the bar was not stingy like so many places. After dinner single malt scotch was a very generous pour and that counts in my book. Sangria made from scratch was very good as well. A bit pricey,... More

This restaurant offers something for everyone. They have a tasty tapas menu, an interesting lunch menu and a terrific dinner menu. The happy hours at the 2 beautiful bars are a very "happy" experience. The food is delicious and the price is right. Every Wednesday is half price bottle of wine night and seafood specials abound. It's a winning combination!

Finally ate here the other night. We chose the outside seating which is very enjoyable (at least to us), although some may not like the road noise. The hostess, our waiter and the server/bus boy were very pleasant and accommodating. We ordered 2 mojitos, $9 each, which seems to be a standard price in many bars/restaurants. They were good. We...

We have fined here about five times since my first review in 2011. Wednesday's are great for half price wine bottles and when they have special deals on seafood. Mussels app is great and a meal in itself. Salmon, steaks, country chicken and other entrees are well prepared and served as ordered. Service is always attentive without being overbearing. Use...
