Nice restaurant for 90th birthday-Monmouth County
My mom & dad are comming up at the end of july for her 90th B'Day. It is on a Tuesday. There will be 9 of us(7 adults 2 kids) . We were originally looking at The Mill in Spring Lake but the feedback from here wasn't too good.
We want to stay in the Neptune, Spring Lake Area as some people live a bit further away. So far we are looking at The Breakers in Spring Lake and Mr C's in Allenhurst., don't really want anything further north than that if we can help it. Has anyone been to either of them recently?
Any other suggestions. My dad was in the business and he is of the age where he complains if things aren't just right, so we need some place nice. LOL But not too noisy they both have hearing aids, Thanks for any help.
Would you go a little further south? The Shipwreck Grill in Brielle is very good.

It is not exactly in the area you are looking for but Restaurant Nicholas does private catering for small gatherings such as yours. My wifes baby shower was held there and as would be expected of a restaurant of their caliber the food was excellent and the service was of course impeccable.

Agree with Shipwreck being one of the better places in the area if you're willing to drive about 10-15 minutes more south. I really like Brandls but it seems not everyone agrees with me (and it is kinda noisy).
Whispers is Spring Lake might be good... definitely is geared to a more older clientele. I think it's a bit overpriced for what you get but I've had some good meals there.
I've always enjoyed myself (and the food) at Mr. C's. Truth be told, it's usually a place we meet others and I insist upon arriving early so I can have a drink at that cool bar. It may not be the best restaurant in the county, but it seems a very good solution given the parameters of your inquiry.
I like the Shipwreck as well, but I find that during the summer especially, it gets mighty noisy in the dining room. By the mid-point of dinner service the whole place pretty much hums and can, shall we say, lack "patience." If you do decide to try it, go as early as you can.
