Very Good to Great Shore Restaurants that are BYO's

Manow in Lincroft is great, and Siam Garden in Red Bank. Manow is really good, and is about an entree less expensive than Siam, but they both are really goo Thai food. Bradley Beach and Ocean Grove are really nice places, especially the boardwalk dinner walk off after!

MANOW in Lincroft- EAT HERE

I agree. I have been there, and its great. Its a full entree price less than Siam Garden, AND its a BYO, which, lets face it, is a great thing when the place has great food.

Top restaurants in Colts Neck/Freehold area?

Cafe Colore on rt. 9 was a good byob, if its still there. Metropolitan Cafe has a really good sampler and sweet and sour shrimp and calamari, and the best sangria. Sogno was good but overpriced. Christophers? by delicious orchards is good for lunch. I hate that bagel place in Perkins plaza. Try Frankie Feds on 33, byob, bring some cash for tip, Jerzey Freeze is a safe bet with kids, good luck!

Daddy O Long beach island anyone?

Went there 2 summers ago. Glad theyre still going because 4 of us all had really good food, the Lobster Bisque was outrageous, and the food was not only really top notch, the presentations were tight and eye grabbing.

The Falls tinton falls

I have been once. Its ok, We got killed for drinks in TINTON FALLS?! Ok, the sandwich i had was standard chicken which to no surprise was over cooked and dry, so now I need more sauce or drink just to get it down. The chicken spring roll was really good bar snack. She had the goat cheese salad, for what is was, OUCH on the value, however definately tasty. Well stop in for A cocktail now and again, but the true dollar value of taste or portion<NOTICE taste first> is not there.

Trinity - Remarkable Dinner

This post sounds almost as well written as the original! Sounds like you two had an enjoyable time and the chocolate plate was a classy touch.

The Falls tinton falls

As per The old Grist Mill... I actually worked there for two years under the former Gary regime, and 3 months under the new. I miss the place a lot, and cant wait to go back and check it out. Im not really within walking distance, but would drive to chill. Were actually planning a Grist Mill reunion, hopefully listening to live music and sippin cocktails on the porch by those little Falls.
