“The best bagels in Monmouth county, freshly made, on the spot! For those who feel their cholesterol a bit low, a pork-roll, egg & cheese, on an "everything" bagel is suggested. Off course and it is a "cash only" place.”

“lots of local family owned stores interspersed with jazzy chains - the town has changed since it was dominated by Woolworths (a real one with a lunch counter and toy department) and Prown's local variety store. Red Bank has gone up market. Go to shop, browse or people watch - lots of local places have live music - the doors are open (unless its five below) like what you see, or hear - go in. every place is friendly ”

“No sign to identify the restaurant but right next to the fish market. Paul/chef, owner came out and talked to us at the end of the night. They really know how to cook a piece of fish. Family style/sized tasty salads....mussels! Yum! Enjoy!”

“The McLoone family owns several restaurants - they are all great. This one is a ten minute Walk. People love the CJ McLoone's Sunday Brunch Buffet which generally includes sea food (clams, oysters...) On Broad Street downtown is Robinson Ale House. On the Water in Sea Bright is McLoone's Rum Runner, in Asbury Park is McLoone's Supper Club. Each has a different vibe and menu. There is frequently live music. All of McLoone's places have a bar area and quieter seating areas. Sometimes they get packed - so call ahead. Local Family Owned. Tim McLoone's charity is Holiday Express - bringing live music and a Christmas party to institutionalized people. ”
