I was in the Red Bank area around 4;30 pm on a weekday. Anyone that knows New Jersey traffic knows that 4 pm starts bumper to bumper, everywhere. I live about 90 minutes from Red Bank and I while I wasn’t starving around 4:30, I didn’t particularly want to wait until probably 6:30-7 when I would actually get home. It seemed like a good idea to find a diner and stop. I didn’t know much about Red Bank, but I remembered I had eaten at Toast last year and had a good experience. I stumbled upon the Red Bank Diner and made my way there.
The Red Bank Diner is unique. It’s located on the main road and a local business. It’s not a standalone building and attached to several other restaurants. The inside is clean and modern. It has several booths and a small bar. It reminds me more of a local restaurant than a diner, but that is okay!
The coffee was good. What gave it an “A” is our server kept it refilled the entire time. There was never a moment that my cup came close to being empty (and believe me, I can drink coffee).
The Red Bank Diner has all of the usual diner favorites. There are plenty of breakfast, lunch, and dinner options. When I went, I wasn’t starving, but I was hungry. It took me a while to decide what I wanted. I randomly decided to order the St. Louis Burger. I had no idea why or even what it came with. Honestly, I just did it by name and hmm: I’ve never been to St. Loius. It was topped with cheese, mushrooms, and mozzarella cheese. It also came with “cajun” fries which to be honest were just curly fries.
The burger was delicious and while the “cajun fries” were good curly fries, I didn’t taste much of the flavor I anticipated.
The server was great. As I mentioned, he always kept my beverages (water and coffee) filled, and there was never a moment that I felt as if I needed anything. Not only that, but my food came out quickly. I could not have asked for a better experience.
For my coffee and meal, the cost was $12.
I enjoyed the Red Bank Diner and had a great experience. It’s a nice local diner on the main street and I have no complaints!
