A restaurant in Monmouth County has now permanently closed its doors after being a part of the community for the past four and a half decades.

Despite the fact that it was a chain restaurant, it was still pretty popular and offered people good food for a reasonable price.

The one that closed in Monmouth by the way was the last one in the county.

There is a saving grace though, and that's that the employees of this restaurant had the choice to relocate to another one of the chain's locations.

Whether you were a waiter, dishwasher, chef, or other employees you were able to keep your job.

Right before the holidays, that's such an important thing!

So, What Restaurant Closed Its Doors For Good In Monmouth County?

As I said, this place was part of the community for over 40 years and was located off route 35 in Ocean Township.

It was known for its reasonably priced seafood and of course those incredible Cheddar Bay Biscuits.

According to APP the restaurant was closed due to a lack of performance when compared to other locations.

It's sad to see them close because even though there are tons of great seafood restaurants in Monmouth County, Red Lobster was a good option when you were on a budget.
