The people who run the restaurant are awesome! Very friendly and helpful. This restaurant is a pay it forward restaurant. Jon Bon Jovi established this to help people out that need a little hope in their lives.

Everyone should go and support this! Surprisingly good food and what a great concept! Pay a really low price for a great meal and add a donation for someone who can't afford it ... let's pay it forward

We were there in Sept and we caught New Jersey transit from Hoboken to Red Bank. I suggest you google train transport from New York to Red Bank as that's how I found it.
