Ocean county is a waste land for any good eatery.. the demographics can support another good place like Mikes Atlantic bar and grill ,but why isn't happening ?

Uncle Mike's Kosher steakhouse and deli, Lakewood

This place has just opened up and has very odd hours it is open Sunday through Wednesday noon to 10 PM closed Friday and Saturday.

I don't know if this is a steakhouse or a deli the one thing that I do know is that they are not bashful with their prices. They have no liquor license. I did go for lunch at 12 o'clock however they were not open.

Does anybody have a review or can tell me if this place is worth a visit.

Looking for Myrtle Beach dining with ocean view

I second the Sea Capt.'s house, which is right on the ocean. This venue is not only good for breakfast but lunch and dinner. The new bar is a major asset... I consider the Sea Capt.'s house in the top five restaurants in the grand strand .. The only problem, sometimes the parking but this time of year you should GOOD

Danny's Steakhouse Red Bank

As per your suggestion I did email Danny at Danny's steakhouse restaurant site. I Did bring forth our displeasure with the food and wait staff however to date Danny nor a member of the staff has not replied. Perhaps Danny spends too much time ice boating and not addressing issues at his restaurant.

Best Portuguese in Iron Bound?

Went to the Iberian Peninsula about 10 days ago. We found it to be substandard and not even a shell of what it used to be. We asked for some cold lobsters they stated that they do not serve cold lobsters anymore. We then ordered the broiled lobsters without stuffing all three orders came with stuffing. I know at times there is a language problem however all of the wait staff are great at math.

To make a trip Newark for the ironbound section, may be a major disappointment depending on what restaurant you choose.

Danny's Steakhouse Red Bank

I believe restaurant impossible is with Chef Robert Irvine .Why does Danny pick his spot on what table to visit ..Where is Char located ?

Danny's Steakhouse Red Bank

I must reiterate, the server disappeared into the kitchen and we did not see her for a long period of time. In the interim we were forced to eat a portion of the steak.

It is our belief that when you go to a upscale restaurant the food is normally cooked properly and you don't have to chase the wait staff to address issues or to get assistance. I don't normally like to send food back. I feel that people that do this for the most part are obnoxious .They often times overreact to a an oculus situation.

Going out to dinner and paying a bill in excess of $130 should not entail any anxiety or blood pressure elevation.

Danny's Steakhouse Red Bank

We did attempt to speak to the server however she disappeared back in the kitchen area. Being hungry we did eat a portion of the steak that was more well done. If I could've contacted the server I most certainly would have addressed this issue with her.

Danny's Steakhouse Red Bank

I must preface this by stating in the past visits to Danny's the food was good and the service was spotty.

During our last visit we ordered a porterhouse for two cooked medium. When the steak came it had a cold center and was raw. We attempted to contact our wait staff person however she was very elusive and for whatever reason avoided further contact with our table ...We ate a small portion of the steak.
. Our bill finally came from another member of the staff.

For a restaurant that considers themselves as a steakhouse this is a major faux pas to grill a $70 steak improperly.

We did see Danny speaking to other patrons however he never got to our table. Needless to say the tip reflected our dissatisfaction. I will note that the salads and side dishes were excellent.

To make a long story short we traveled 45 minutes to Danny's and found it to be a disappointment. I do not like to be confrontational or send back a meal but if there was a case for us to voice our displeasure this was one of them.

As a caveat to Danny if your service/ food problems are not corrected the next stop may be'' restaurant impossible''.

PS: the valet was a highlight of the evening our car was waiting right in front of the restaurant

Chef Mike's MBG ,charge extra for Ice ?

After reviewing my post I think I would be remiss by not saying that Chef Mike's ABG restaurant is one of the top restaurants in the shore area and in my opinion the best Ocean County. The food has always been exceptional, the wait staff is well trained and attentive. The view is second to none.. When Chef Mike was with 709 Arnold Ave. we followed him to that location and again found superior cuisine and a professional wait staff .
. I may not agree with Chef Mike's policy but that being said I find him to be a standup guy who supports this policy and explained why it was in place.

Chef Mike's MBG ,charge extra for Ice ?

Most recently I went to Chef Mike's ABG and ran into something that confused me. I ordered Johnny Walker red on the rocks and was originally charged eight dollars. Upon my second drink I was charged $10 when I received the check I asked the bar person why. She stated that there was a dollar extra for drinks on the rocks. Please note that she did not advise me of this until I pointed this out on the check.

This caused me concern and I wrote Chef Mike via email .He stated that this is his practice to charge for ice and it was his understanding that 99% of all restaurants do the same

. I and my wife visit various restaurants in the shore on a regular basis and to our knowledge we are never charged extra for ice.

He goes on to explain in his email that those that order drinks on the rocks get extra liquor. !!If that is the case why allegedly charge extra for the ice ,charge for the extra Booze . I find this to be a deceptive practice.

I also find this nickel and dime policy confusing arbitrary and capricious.

Please explain to me if you find this to be the general practice in restaurants in New Jersey? If so where and why ?

Charlie Browns Lakewood remodeled ,improved ??

The charlie Browns has been remodeled ,But the same old NY people are stealing the bread ect from the salad bar ..The manager is somewhat of a clown and not a people person ,he should address this issue ,because the $ is passed on to those that don't
.The menue has changed slightly and the chips @ the bar are a good addition ,the food is just ok ,but ..It amazes me how they stay afloat ,but they sure do !

Let's face it the Corn beef is awful ..it is suppose to be a staple in irish resturants ,but @ TP it is not only salty ,but tough and poor quailty .If this is not fixed soon with a much better product it will cost the TP a percentage of bussiness !!

Chilled and frozen are to two different things Professor ..The thrust of my post was that this place has to pay attention to detail and the beer glass is not that important ,the product they pour and serve is the real focus

The place need alot of work .. The beer MUST be cold !! Chill the glasses
The 4 owners need to be more pro-active ,since none have been in the Eatery bussiness before.
They may want to spend some time @ Kelly's in Nepunce City to find out how it is done .The Corn Beef @ TP is subpar and rye bread is Shop Rite's own ,Maybe try Glory's Rye ...one of the best .The hand cut fries are soggy from oil that is not hot enought . They could make it ,but they have to push hard in the right direction ..The service was luke warn ,in need of training and social skills
