Easter lunch: Manasquan area

Looing for a nice place to take my parents for Easter. Requirements? Sigh....not BYOB, not too adventerous, not a buffet, must be handicapped accessible for my mother who uses a walker. Mom has a real sweet tooth, so great desserts are a huge plus. Price not a concern. I wish I could find something other than Italian, so I would appreciate your help. Willing to travel about a half hour from Manasquan for something special. Thanks

  1. I've thought about this one and, I'm afraid to say, keep coming up with nothing worth vouching for. Several places are closed, a couple are likely doing buffets (although, in this category, The Mill might work - call them??), some I know nothing of their desserts, and the rest just suck. Worst of all, I'm cooking for the brood at my Mom's, so our house is out as well.

    I wish you the best of luck. Hopefully, bouncing this thread up a bit will get it a few looks . . .

    1. Mschow, not sure if they have a buffet on Easter or the regular menu but The Molly Pitcher Inn, in Red Bank would be a good choice. Likely fully booked by now but worth a phone call. Attractive dining room, nice views of the river.

      Have a nice day with your parents wherever you go.

        Thank you both for your suggestions. We have been to the Molly Pitcher and the view is lovely, but again buffet style. Looks like I am stuck with Villa Vittoria again....easily accessible for my mother, but I am sick to death of Italian food since that's usually all they ever want to eat!
