Stopped by with my wife and daughter last night. Haven't been back here in several years, but decided to give it another shot after attending a recent event last month. We sat outside because it was a nice night. I ordered a Longtrail Limbo IPA, it didn't look or taste like it should. We started off with the fried oysters, that was a mistake. Really bad, the worst fried food I've ever had. Once I finished what was supposed to be my beer, I switched to a Sierra Nevada, my wife got one too. When those came out, they didn't look or taste like they should. Dirty tap lines? Then our food came out. My wife had the bacon wrapped scallop app. She said the scallops were edible, but the grits were horrible. My daughter's chicken tenders were over cooked. What was supposed to be a medium rare NY strip was well done and like the mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts lacked flavor. I told the waitress about my steak and she agreed it was over cooked. She offered to replace it, but I told her no, I wasn't going to wait around for another. I've had better meals in the officer's dining room at the county jail when I worked there. This was by far the worst meal I've ever had. Waitress was alright. Chefs should work at McDonald's. A vegan could grill a better steak. If it was possible to give negative stars I would. It's a shame the food is so bad. Nice place and location is all it has going.

The food was good, but I don't agree with the dollar rating. It should be 3 $ signs, not 1 $. Our waiter was nice, but a little nervy questioning his serve for us. We gave him 18% of the bill, but I guess he was looking for 20%.

Went with my family for brunch today. Food was good, service was less than stellar. And apparently the waitress was confused about our gift certificate that clearly states Brunch for four. She actually said this is confusing. Then they automatically added on a 20% tip. Complete turn off. As a former server I was not impressed. Service was definitely not worth that. Server was definitely overtopped. Hopefully that money was shared among the bus people also.

We recently moved to Freehold and have been trying different dinner venues. The food was outstanding as was the service from Lola our server. She was extremely pleasant and attentive. 5 stars well earned!


Been to a few parties here and they’re always great. Good food, good service, very clean. We’ve also had dinner and stayed over night. The rooms are really nice. And again the food and service is great.

Food was great and service was quick. Great for a date night or a gathering of friends. Only 2 small complaints. The bar was pretty loud and our waiter never actually introduced himself.

Dined here last week - outside. Our server was lovely. She moved at our tempo and knew the menu well. We had a bacon-wrapped scallop appetizer and it was meh. It amounted to nothing more than a grilles scallop in bacon. It was lazy in appearance and taste and relied entirely on the organic flavors scallops and bacon supply untouched. A missed opportunity to do something special with two easy components. We shared two dishes from there: a wedge salad, which was well, a wedge salad. Totally forgettable and again, low-hanging fruit if you ask me. Do something fun with the wedge salad concept. Instead, it was a hunk of iceberg and literally assaulted by dressing. Our third dish was a crab-stuffed flounder. Boring and flavorless. And again, so much potential with these ingredients. The place offers a lovely patio on a bustling Freehold street, with tons of Main Street USA charm. But the garnish is the food at this restaurant. And that means they're missing a golden opportunity. Two stars for wonderful service and a charming location. Though the location is like complimenting someone's eyes. You say thank you, but it's not your fault they're pretty.

Something has definitely changed at the Market Yard Grill at the American Hotel. We have dined here through the years over 100 times. We would customarily eat here twice a month and have always been satisfied even though the prices continue to increase beyond the food and service quality. It is close to home and convenient. Over the last year or so, we noticed that things have declined a bit. The attitudes of the servers has slipped. The food quality has been less than stellar. Something just isn't right. Our last visit was tonight. It will be our final visit ever. Appalled is the most appropriate way to described the treatment we received. Our anniversary is in two days, so I booked dinner here via Open Table, as I have done for over a decade. It was raining, so I dropped my wife at the door and I then parked the car with a valet service that handles parking for the various restaurants. When I made my way into the restaurant, i was directed to my wife sitting at a table crunched in between a couple others. Our server sensed my displeasure and asked what was the matter. I said I did not like this table, as it was our anniversary dinner and it was far from private. She immediately offered us a larger table next to us that was in a corner and more private. We thanked her and ordered drinks. About ten minutes later, while we waited for those drinks, an obnoxious women who looked like Mrs. Doubtfire, told us that we cannot sit here and basically to get up! Embarrassed and appalled, we made our way back to the front of the restaurant and I insisted on speaking to the manager. He said that they needed that table for a party of four. I explained that we did not make this move on our own. Our server moved us. He then fumbled around and left to verify this! When he returned, I told him that this will be our last visit to this place and he needs to correct his " helpers" attitude. How dare they treat anyone like this. Especially someone who dines here as many times as we have. Luckily we were able to make a call to another local restaurant that we frequent, who appreciated our patronage. Bottom line is the customers pay the bills and if you make internal mistakes, you NEVER, treat customers in a condescending manner. We dine out at least twice per week, and like to give local restaurants the business. Classless! Our friends, family etc, will never spend our money here, again.

Sunday Brunch is overpriced ..Check your bill they automatically add 20 percent tip to the bill, even for a party of two.
