Very nice Saturday night dinner!

Have been here previously for lunch but we enjoyed a very nice dinner with family on Saturday. Everyone enjoyed their meal.....from the short ribs to the stuffed flounder to the scallops to the grouper! And the crab cake appetizer was one of the best I ever had. I would agree that the prices are a... read more

It is always a fun time and the food is amazing. During the summer you can sit outside and feel the vibe coming off downtown freehold.

The restaurant has been around for a few years and in my family's opinion it had a very iffy start with a lot of inconsistencies visit to visit. On one occasion I was a guest of a pharmaceutical firm and the big seafood cocktail for four was ordered and some of the shellfish (shrimp and a lobster tails) were under... More

Have been there a couple of different times, most recently on Saturday nights with friends. Beer is cold. Bartenders are relatively attentive. Band is good. Clientele is a little scary. I guess I would be more interested if I were 55 and single but I'm not, so going with friends is more about people watching and enjoying ourselves vs. interacting... More

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 peacefully quiet.... 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!
