This landmark little red building has been there for over 130 years serving hungry patrons. They serve classic breakfast and lunch sandwiches along with fresh salads, and seasonally updated specials.


This, by reservation only, dinner (also a BYOB that gives them a 5.5 rating) is a great way to sample their unique menu on their talented Chef's whim.

The inside of the restaurant is rustic but very comfortable. The outside of the little red store located at the corners of Navesink Avenue and Locust Point Road in the Navesink section of Middletown, NJ

Started wtih a sourdough bread from benchmark breads in Atlantic Highlands. Mike topped it with caramelized onions and grueyer cheese.


and an "almost" classic wedge salad with salt/pepper bacon and ranch dressing.

A beef filet Seared and then finished in brown butter, over smashed potatoes with cream and topped with tempura onion rings. (See Gallery)

Last but not least, we were served a vanilla cheesecake with a cunel of mango sorbet.

Lobster mac & cheese was the third course in our meal. Mike told us the secret to his macaroni and cheese, beside other cheeses, was American cheese.

I can honestly say this was the best macaroni and cheese I have had, lobster or not, in my almost half a century of life.
