Sat down at the bar with two friends... 3 bartenders walked past us without even saying hello to us. 2 out of the 3 walked by to check their phone! ridiculous! sat there for almost 15 minutes before even getting a menu... and it was a slow, rainy Tuesday and the bar was empty

Our Friend's Band Was Playing Saturday Night. My husband and I went to meet our friends out for dinner and drinks, bad idea! Bartender was rude. I told to grab a table before it gets taken. Went to go grab the table there's food left all on the table. Finally a hostess comes over and asks us for drinks I... More

Visited for lunch on the weekend. Open windows was nice but this did not stand out among all the other good places in Red Bank. Food (chicken sandwich, fish & chips) were fine, service fine. Nothing to really fault but just not as good as other experiences nearby. Didn't try the drinks, which did look good so maybe that would... More

My wife and I live an hour away from Red Bank but make it there atleast 3 to 4 x a year. It's a very clean and safe town with great Trendy Restaurants and Bars. We usually stay for a few days and stay at the Molly Pitcher Inn or the Oyster Point Hotel. Both of them are on the... More

Food is not good - not even the bar pickies - stick to the beer and the drinks - and the tvs - but not the food.

The food was good and the atmosphere is ok. But the server and the kitchen were very slow. It took a good 2 hours for dinner and we just had sandwiches.

I had the berry chicken salad. It was very good. They have typical bar food and also sushi. Didn't try that. There was live music and I liked the group. Can't remember the name.

The Downtown is great if you're looking for the "bar/club" atmosphere on a weekend night. While they do offer a good deal on sushi at happy hour, the quality is lacking. It doesn't taste fresh but rather feels like it was made that morning and stuck in the fridge for hours. There's quite a few sushi options in Red Bank... More

From the live music to the good drinks, the Downtown is a hot spot in Red Bank. There aren't many good spots to choose from in Red Bank anymore, but Gotham and the Downtown have the good music going til the early AM hours. This has a cool bar feel downstairs where it's always packed and then upstairs always has... More
