North Beach grille in Long Branch

I have been dining here for breakfast and lunch for years. The food has always been good and fresh. They have many healthy choices, such as yogurt/fruit/granola parfaits, and some not-so-healthy choices, such as potato pancakes (an annual birthday treat). My usual breakfast is the Veggie Sandwich. The DH orders the loaded salmon bagel. You can order just about anything, really.

Though the menu did not change and most of the service staff remained (though they seem to be slowly dwindling away), something about the place is "off" to me since the new ownership (husband and wife team). They can't seem to turn tables the way they used to. The owners seem to be still green, shouting to each other constantly, even though years have passed. This past weekend, we stood in the door waiting to be seated. Every employee and the owners saw us, yet it was as if we were invisible. The new owner seated folks that had clearly walked in behind us. Just an odd vibe...maybe it's me.

Wild salmon in eastern Monmouth?

I'm craving some grilled wild salmon. I don't care for Atlantic or farmed salmon. Any restaurant recommendations in Eastern Monmouth?

Barnacle Bill's, Rumson NJ change of format/policy please read and share your opinion.........

Really? They had only had room for two boats, which was rarely available. They never claimed to "allow" dock and dine. The end of the pier was simply available to those who wanted to dine at Barnacle Bills. I assumed it was an arrangement with the marina owners.

Sadly, the "boater friendly" restaurants are slim pickins in the area...at least for waterfront establishments that I'm interested in dining at.

Soft shell crabs

Spoke with the fishmonger at Little Silver Seafood on Saturday. He had gotten his first soft-shell crabs this season on Friday, and he plans to get more this Friday. He was buying them for $8 each and selling them for $10 each. He said in Manhattan, they were selling crabs from the same lot/batch for $17 each.

Queso Grill in Lincroft

Sigh. Coupons on the site expired in December...

I hate it when a business does not maintain its website. Tells me that they don't really care about the customer experience.

Brewery type setting needed for 30th bday party

Taste in the Galleria in Red Bank has that brewpub feel and decent food. They have a fair beer menu.

La Pastaria in Red Bank

I had the best risotto there, with fresh peas and tiny pieces of sausage and mushrooms. All the meals I've had there have been good.

Irish pub near freehold, MJ

+1 on McDonaghs. It and the Claddagh in Highlands are the only places that I've experienced that come close to real Irish pub feel.

Who remembers the name of this restaurant?

It does. My parents hung out there in the very early 60s.

3 new seabright restaurants: Beach Burgers Grill, Billy G's bistro and Even Tide

I enjoyed Alice's very much. Will be a regular breakfast destination, most likely.

Pondering checking out Harry's outdoor bar area tonight.

Wayne: BYO rehearsal dinner location for 50-60 guests

She booked Nicola's before I even had a chance to give her your suggestions. She had attended a rehearsal dinner there coincidentally for another friend on Saturday night. She was so pleased, she booked right away.

Thanks!

Helping a friend find a rehearsal dinner location for Tuesday, July 2, in the Wayne area. She prefers BYO. Any type of food.

Searched the board and noted a few places.

What suggestions do you have?

Prime Rib - Monmouth

I tried the prime rib at Mooses's. The flavor was good, but it was tough...like, my-jaw-ached tough. But the killer was this: the server didn't package the bone in the doggy bag!

The service was very friendly, and Moose himself went out of his way to be welcoming.
