Great ambiance!!

I don't eat seafood, but if you sit inside, you can get a few items that aren't fishy! The chicken francaise is outstanding!! My husband loves all the fish entrees, can't go wrong, as long as you eat inside. The outside patio is a different menu, and I don't particularly care to eat from that... read more

This is another great place for families. We sat out on the deck at sunset and had steamers and lobster rolls. It was a lovely night; the food was good, and there was room after for dessert! The servers were all very young and happy to be of service! BYOB!

To be clear. This is not a "Red Lobster" chain. It is independently owned by an owner who just happens to have a restaurant name which is similar to the chain name. People get confused like some of the reviews who made a review without actually visiting the restaurant but thinking it is the Red Lobster chain. (Beware reviews.) I... More

I went here my last day of vacation. The prices are outrageous! You had to byob, and they had a very limited menu. Now I know why they had an empty parking lot when no one else did! I will not go there again.

We are very sorry that your experience was not excellent. Being a BYOB is a state law and simply out of our control. We offer 2 menus with everything from pasta, chicken, salads, sandwiches to Lobster , so again we are sorry if you could not find an item to suit your needs. More

Another couple and ourselves were looking for a place for dinner after a few hours on the boardwalk. We drove around Pt. Pleasant and couldn't agree on a choice. Lo and behold, there was Red's with a space in their parking lot! In we drove. Two of us had Shrimp Fra Diavlo. Excellent sauce! I liked that you could order... More

When a restaurant with a long-standing tradition changes owners, it often loses the ambience that made it so special to so many customers. Not so with Red's. This seasonal BYO on the Manasquan Inlet continues to shine under new owners who wisely decided not to trifle with tradition. We had dinner here shortly after it opened in April and remain... More

Went foot a friend's birthday lunch. One of her favorites is lobster roll and not many shore restaurants serve lobster roll. The lobster was plentiful, flavorful and delicious. I also had the Manhattan CLAM Chowder which was filled with tender clams. My personal preference would be fresh carrots and a little more thyme, but the tender clams made the chowder... More

Red's has indoor and outdoor seating but different menus for each. Outside is a walk up place your order type of quick dining. Where the indoor is a full sit down menu. Unfortunately the regular menu is not as interesting as the specials menu that is very creative and fresh. They should update the menu to reflect their talent.
