Monmouth Co restaurants open so far

Just thought this thread might be more relavant to our lives for the next few days to a week, although you wouldn't believe the hoops I had to jump through to get online.

To start:
Fireside in Marlboro

  1. I was going to start a similar thread. Hope all our NJ CH users made it through safe. Glad to know about Fireside as its not too far. Also in the same vicinity (western Monmouth):

    Frankie Fed's (open since Tuesday) in Freehold...complete mob scene
    Krispy Pizza in Freehold opened last only

    As for food stores, I believe all Wegmans are open (limited prepared foods available, I think). I stopped in the Manalapan store yesterday and left once I saw the hordes of people. In Freehold, Top Tomato is open. I heard that also in Freehold, Walmart and Sam's are open. In Manalapan, Target is open.

    For at least some places, cash or check only.

      Also just heard that The Cabin on Rt. 33 is open from 12-6 with a limited menu.

        via 45 in Red Bank posted on FB that they have power and plan to open shortly. Don't know if that's true for all of Red Bank.

          Villabate in Manalapan (Gordon's Corner Rd) I heard was open. $15 for a large pie, cash only.

          I am in Morganville, off Union Hill Rd. Our power came on about 15 minutes ago. LAST thing I ever expected. Hopefully more restaurants will be open soon!

          Bad news: I also heard another Nor'easter is coming next Wednesday.

    2. Charley's in No. Long Branch, lots of sand to Avenel Blvd, but open. Not exactly thrilling food-wise, but the bar cheers my heart.

      1. 10th Ave. Burrito in Belmar is open.

        Local Smoke BBQ in Cookstown is also open.

        Called at least a dozen random Monmouth County restaurants and the 1 place that answered (Acapulquenos in Long Branch) had no power.

        Here is a listing of Monmouth County restaurants if you'd like to try calling places you'd be interested in:

        1. It's not Monmouth County, but Delorenzo'a is open in Robbinsville and was great as usual last night. No more crowded than usual.

          1. Maloneys on Main street in Matawan is open running on a generator. Limited menu, burgers and sandwiches but the beer is cold.
