Basil T's Red Bank - Thoughts?

It has been a while since I have been there and have heard good things. I plan on going tonight and like the fact that they are also a microbrewery.

Has anyone been there as of late and if so, what were your thoughts and recommendations?

  1. Hello Yankeefan - I never liked the Red Bank Basil T's and think there are much better choices in the area. Sorry.

      What bgut1 said. I've only been there once, but it didn't blow my skirt up. I wouldn't go back.

      1. re: MartiniQueen

        Agree with all assesssments of Basil T's.

        "but it didn't blow my skirt up".....never heard this expression before....yours?

          Unfortunately I can't take credit for that one, but I'm not sure who said it first...possibly Bette Davis, Mae West, or Golda Meir. :)

    2. Liked the original Basil T's; find the latest quite boring. The microbrews can be a fun experience unto themselves, so pls share your experience.

      1. Last time i was there was about 2 years ago. Lousy service and really mediocre food. Not a spot I would go back to; although the bar scene was really happening.

        1. So here is my feedback from my visit:

          Pizzas were nice and crispy- enjoyed them.
          Calamari was pretty good as well
          Beers were not great for microbrews, pretty run of the mill.

          NOT WORTH THE PRICE!!! Could have gotten the same quality stuff a lot of different places for literally half the price. I dont mind paying a lot for a meal but based on what I got there, it was a little ridiculous.

          1. Basil Ts, the Red Bank institution where you're gonna pay a lot, and not get a lot.

            IMO their beers are terrible and food overpriced. It's one of those places where every time I go I find myself asking why.
