Places for lunch in or near Oakhurst NJ(monmouth County)

We would like a nice place for a small retirement luncheon in Oakhurst- NJ located in Monmouth County near Asbury Park. We would like to have a great lunch and a few drinks with our meals- This is planned for around noon in June- so we would appreciate any help. Thanks

  1. Ho about Piccola Italia? Located right off of Rt. 35 in Ocean Township? Right before Asbury? The food is great, they have a liquor license...check it out below and see if you like it.

    I love the place!

      Another good option is Manhattan Steakhouse on RT. 35.

        I thought of Manhattan Steakhouse, but I didn't think they were open for lunch. So, I checked their website. Looks as though I'm right. Unless that's changed and they haven't updated?

        1. re: RGR

          RGR - Your correct. I called and confirmed. However, I remember seeing a sign out front saying they were open for lunch. Here is an old website confirming that fact.
          They must have recently changed. Sorry.

    2. I agree with Angelina. We had our rehearsal dinner at Piccola Italia. The food is always excellent!

        Where exactly is Piccola Italia?

        1. re: Barbarella

          It is in the Cobblestone Village shopping center. Cross street is West park Avenue.

          (Route 35 south bound side)

            OH, I do know where that is, thanks.

      2. Thank you for the great suggestions- we are going to call Piccola Italia and try them for a retirement dinner in June. Thank you again- will report back later and let everyone know how it went.
