The food, service and atmosphere were most enjoyable. We went there for dinner before a performance at the Algonquin Theater in Manasquan.

So many times when you eat at a restaurant, you have no idea who the owner is or who the chef is. The owner of this restaurant, Chris, has a heart of gold and tries his best to help everyone in our community. He’s the type of person who would give you the shirt off his back. He just did an event a few weeks ago that was really cool. There is an organization here called common ground, they take children who have lost a parent and pears them with the chef who helps them make their parents favorite meal as part of the healing process. Chris doesn’t really tell people he does this event. He just does it. Every time someone needs support as a local, he is there. His head chef is exactly the same way and he can make just about anything.

I don’t just love the people who work there, I really love the food too. I had my bachelorette party there and they make great drinks as well as great food. They’ve also catered my last five staff Christmas parties. I think this place is really special and I hope you enjoy it.

Thank Veera G

Sis & I enjoy dining here frequently and it never disappoints. From the burgers on the bar menu to chicken scarpiella to grilled lamb chops, it's all great! We were going to try someplace new during NJ Shore Restaurant a Week, but one look at their 3 course options changed our mind. The seafood del casa was divine (scallops, crabmeat, shrimp, asparagus, lobster tail in pink cream sauce over angel hair); sis enjoyed the lobster franchise immensely - and the appetizers & desserts were equally delist! Add to that the great service and, in spite of the busy bar scene, the cozy, quiet booth, it's hard to beat!

Great Food, Older crowd, just a nice place to hangout, grab a bite, and chill. Monday to Thursday half price apps...along with a Thursday night $7 martini's...and you are also not breaking the bank. And to top it off a great Staff with great bartenders!

Ordered meat lasagna and found the pasta to be way too soft and mushy and the dish flat and tasteless. While service was excellent it did not make up for the mushy tasteless dish. Banana cake was hard and tasteless.

Hi Barbara, as the owner of Fratello's, I take your comments seriously. I'm very sorry you didn't have a better experience with us. Usually our meat lasagna is spot on and receives lots of compliments however in this case it did not live up to your expectations. Did you eat alone or other guests with you. I'm really concerned with the other dishes as well.
We really try to keep a higher standard at Fratello's. I honestly look forward to your next visit so we can try to impress you on that visit. Please feel free to say hello the next time your in.
