A Point Pleasant, NJ Restaurant Review
Red's Lobster Pot Restaurant
57 Inlet Dr.
Price: Moderate - Expensive
Note: Four star Rating System from
"no stars" = poor to
Four stars = Best in Class
One of the top places in the Point Pleasant area to get creatively prepared, fresh, locally caught seafood.
Except for outdoor dining on the deck overlooking the waterfront, the interior is very spartan and cramped.
Reservations not accepted. You can expect a wait of up to two hours after 6:30 pm on busy weekends and evenings.
Noise Level: Moderate
Recommended For: Diners who enjoy fresh caught, creatively prepared seafood and don't mind the small closely spaced tables.
Not Recommended For: Budget conscious diners who prefer less pricey, fried sea food dishes in a family oriented casual setting
Recommended dishes: When available, The Daily Lobster Specials; the Lobster Fra Diavlo; and The Flounder Francaise.
Red's Lobster Pot is the place to come if you are looking for fresh, locally caught, creatively prepared lobster dishes
Red's is a BYOB, set dock side on the Manasquan inlet. The restaurant is very small with about 12 tables with a menu that's based on locally caught seafood.
They offer a good variety of fresh lobster and seafood caught locally, prepared with pasta and vegetables.
Their daily specials are a bit more ambitious and pricey, often times prepared with succulent sauces.
They also have an outside raw bar with tables overlooking the water where you can watch the boats come from a days fishing in to dock.
The dock side menu consists of more casual fare, like peel-and-each shrimp, clams (roasted or half shell), oysters, steamers, mussels, lobster, and a delicious lobster roll. It's counter service, so you order, grab seat at one of the many picnic tables, and wait for your name to be called.
Unless the restaurant is empty, which is very unlikely, do not expect to be seated promptly if you have a party of more than four.
Red's Lobster Pot is closed during the winter. Open for lunch and dinner from the end of April to mid-October with limited hours before Memorial Day and after Labor Day.
