New Mcloone's to open in Red Bank.

Won't be called Mcloone's, but Robinson Ale House. The former Murphy's.

  1. Let me see if I can contain my excitement. Yep, I can.

    1. More of the same overpriced, average quality food, I predict.

      1. ANYTHING to replace Murphy's will be a welcome addition! Hopefully the beer selection will be good enough to push some of the other bars bit to step up their game.

        1. Yeah, I shared this info several weeks ago in a diff RB thread.

          ANything is a step up from Murphy's. At least he is going for low hanging fruit by going mostly burgers. I feel like that is all I would really order at a McLoones anyway...

          A few doors down, the Boardwalk Burgers is being converted to a mac n cheese / grilled cheese place, which should be interesting

          1. Please, God - let him hire at least one decent chef who has some interesting recipes. That company has the wherewithal to hire good cooks and flat-out refuses to do so.

              You would hope that as he moved inland to places that could no longer depend on a great water view to attract a crowd that he would compensate by upping the quality of the food...

                Hasn't seemed to work at "CJ Mcloone's" thus far.
