Great place for seafood, it is a byob... always crowded... inside a little tight, but will do for small crowds... but also they have outdoor eating... right on the water... recommended!

My wife and I visited twice in one week after living in the area for years. The food was tremendous- the lobster mac and cheese, and seafood pasta dishes were decadent and the quaint building had us feeling like we were in a New England fishing village! Reds is a true hidden treasure in Point Beach!

Spent the day on the Jersey shore enjoying a beautiful day. Hunger called and we stopped at Red's Lobster Pot situated right on the water with a nice view. Of course we dined outside. Staff friendly and prompt. The lobster roll and mahi mahi sandwich were very good including the fried calamari. Would return if in the area.

Got a delicious takeout meal from Red's during a late season trip to Point Pleasant. Very good and extremely fresh seafood! Next time we'll eat there because it had a nice water view.

Hi Dara thank you so much. I remember coincidentally that the woman waiting for a table as you were picking up your food was also Dara as well! So glad you enjoyed everything and I hope to see you in 2017 when you are able to dine with us. More

As a Brit visiting the east coast, this was my first taste of lobster rolls before travelling up through New England. It wasn't the cheapest meal but the menu is solid, and staff on hand were helpful answering our queries. The lobster cheese melt was insanely delicious. We had a great time!

Looks can be deceiving! Stopped at Red’s Lobster Pot for a quick light dinner after a long days drive. Beautiful setting on the docks overlooking the fishing fleet. Nice outdoor dining area although it was too cool to enjoy on this evening. We ordered soup and shrimp cocktail for dinner, an excellent Manhattan clam chowder and Lobster Bisque which was... More

It's difficult to even respond to this but for the benefit of our loyal customers and the owners and staff that work so hard to satisfy them here goes. The "shrimp boats" you were looking at are scallop boats. Sorry to advise you there is no local shrimp fishery. Consistent quality, sizing and availability can only be guaranteed by farm... More

I have dinner at Red's every week or two throughout the summer. There is both a small indoor dining area (which specializes in complete dinners) and an outdoor dining area (which is more casual and better suited for children). I typically eat indoors. The daily specials offered by the chef are truly unique and inventive. I absolutely love the tuna... More

Best seafood shrimp/ lobster carbonara pasta I have ever had! Delicious meal. A bit loud inside but the setting on the water is perfect!

Recommended by a local for lobster rolls. Recommendation on the money. Been back three time (BYOB). Oysters so fresh that they must have been asleep in their beds earlier this morning. Great steamers (a Jersey summer tradition). Mussels in a light white sauce different from the usual tomato, scallion, and white wine...excellent. Delicious Fish and Chips, Crab Cakes, and Lobsters,... More
