Private Party at the Jersey Shore

I am planning a family party after labor day for about 35-50 people after Labor Day. I am looking for recommendations on restaurants that have a private room or space to accomodate that number in the Spring Lake, Manasquan, Belmar area OR the Red Bank area. I would like to have either a brunch or a luncheon. We are a fairly low key bunch as so casual dinning is okay as long as the food is tasty, the ambience welcoming, the service good and the cost reasonable. Its a tall order so I welcome any suggestions or recommendations!

  1. I just had a benefit luncheon at Trinity Restaurant in Keyport for 40 people. They are usually not open for lunch, so we had the entire place to ourselves. They did a fabulous job and my organization plans on using them for future events.

    1. We are having a party for 40+ people this coming Sunday at Mr. C's at the Allenhurst Beach. Very nice place and they have been very accomodating:

        Hi, SusieQQ. How was the party?
        We're having a wedding at McLoone's next May and will be looking for a rehearsal dinner restaurant soon.

          Everything was great! I certainly recommend Mr. C's. The food was very good and it was a nice time. Actually, I just got back from dinner there. We ate on the outdoor deck and it was a magnificent evening. The ocean was beautiful and there were gulls flying everywhere in the moonlight.

      2. We're having a rehearsal dinner this Friday night at the Spring Lake Manor. The owner, John Nagle, has a great reputation. The Atlantic room holds 40 -100 people. After shopping around, we found the cost very reasonable. $35 pp for a served salad, buffet of four hot dishes, turkey and roast beef carving stations, and assorted dessert.

        1. thanks for the suggestions. they are most appreciated. I hope you and your guests enjoy your parties!
