Where to begin? I remember better times when good food at a decent price and satisfied customers really mattered to ownership. Now they seem to go out of their way to drive customers away. Just recently they got rid of the only bartender who actually knew how to tend bar. He was the only reason my husband and I returned on a regular basis. Perhaps they'd better figure out what the prior owners did to keep people coming back and maybe try that. This place isn't a Jersey Shore club, it's just a local Manalapan bar and we liked it that way. Until they make some huge changes for the better---they won't be seeing me again.

What happened to this place?! I cannot agree with the other posters more. Ever since the new ownership took over, each trip has become increasingly more disappointing. This used to be my favorite place to go! I went in the other night and found out they got rid of another one of the great bartenders who has been there for years. One of the few bright spots of late was going in to talk sports or shop with those guys! I've been going to the OST for almost 20 years, but I don't think I will ever go back. It's definitely time for another change in management - someone who actually knows what the customers want!

This used to be one of the best local restaurants in the area. The new owners have made this one of the worst. I was there on a Saturday night in April. The service was poor at best with the waitress almost throwing the food at you, never asking if everything was OK, and giving you the impression that to serve you was a real bother. I had a 10 oz hamburger. The hamburger tasted like it had been a frozen hockey puck and they precooked it and then reheated it when required. How anybody can mess up a hamburger is beyond me but they did. I used to go there about once a week. They have gone downhill tremendously and I will find someplace, anyplace else before eating there again.

Olde Silver Tavern is a great place for lunch or dinner for the family. A warm and cozy atmosphere and some great steaks offer an experience for all to enjoy.

Closed by the Board of Health since Sept...I heard their kitchen looks like their restrooms...gross. Perhaps the nw owners will bring it back to what it once was. Avoid right now.

Pros: none

Cons: everything

This is a nice neighborhood-feel place, in years past it was filled with smokers but that has changed. Typical bar fare, nothing spectacular but never a bad choice for a quick dinner, big fan of the burgers.

This restaurant/bar has been around forever. Originally you could find people of all ages there but more recently, older crowds go for the bar. The best part about eating there is the popcorn that they serve you before your meal. This is nothing special but definitely decent.

My family and I have been going to OST for more than 10 yrs
now. I was very fond of the staff,food,prices and shared a lot of memories there with my children and friends.

It used to be the place to go for Best food/drinks and Great Prices.

Not the same though after the place was sold! None of the
originals are there anymore (I only recognize 1 person at the bar)
The food ,atmosphere and the PRICES are not the same ! I know
that prices go up but some have gone up almost 3x the amount and
the quality has gone down.

The ribeye that we used to get with the mashed potatoes was
3.95, it is now 10.95 and it does not taste the same!!!!!

The original one was juicy and was marinated in something
that tasted so good.....now it is dry and awful tasting.

I will say the pizza and wings are still good! I do not go as often
now but when I do I still order and enjoy the pizza.

I hope the new owners will get the old staff back and get
the food back to par, especially the ribeye and calamari.

Bring the prices down too and I am sure there will be a waiting
list again, like with the past owners. I used to go and have to
wait for over an hour but it was worth it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The new owners seem very nice! Not a good idea to let all the
originals go , we were loyal to them and friendly with them.

It was a much nicer atmosphere and we miss the regulars.
I know a lot of people do not go there anymore
because of this. Too many negative changes.

I would go there every weekend if some changes
were made.

Best of Luck to you all.

Perfect bar...great food, great service, friendly atmosphere, great music/MC.
An all-around great bar!
Even thought I'm not from the area, I do catch myself at the OST a few times a year.
The pizza is great, the wings are awesome!
The bartenders are very cool.
I highly recommend checking out the OST.
You Will be Happy!

My wife, two kids, and I just moved to Manalapan from DC and are not unfamiliar with poor service. The server was quick to get drinks and take orders. Our appetizer arrived in 10 minutes (acceptable). However, we waited for another 40 minutes without receiving our entres. The server was overly busy, so I spoke to the manager, who obliged us with our check and removed the uneaten entres from our bill. He did check the register and determined that the server waited nearly a half an hour to enter our order. That is tooooo long for young kids to wait for their food. I may give them a chance again in the future, but only after I try out the other restaurants in the area.

I went for Sunday Brunch which was supposed to be $12.95 per person according to the menus and sign outside and every menu we saw. First, the service was horrible... the waitress ignored our table despite the fact that she had maybe three or four tables to wait on. We literally waited a good half hour to 45 minutes after we were done eating before she came by with our check. When she DID bring our check, they had charged us $14.95 per person for the brunch. I complained to the waitress, who in turn talked to the manager. She came back and told us the manager that the price of the brunch had changed and they hadn't updated their menus (and what about the sign outside?!?!?) and there was nothing they could do about it. We needed to get on the road so I didn't complain any further. Since the waitress herself was so bad I just took the difference out of her tip... I hate to do that, I know waitresses survive on tips, but her service was bad enough that I felt it was warranted. Stay away from this restaraunt! Do not support scam artists!

Old Silver Tavern is your average neighborhood bar and restaurant. It has a lot of town memerobilia from over the years. They are known for good food at good prices but they recently changed ownership over the past few years and the food is not as good as it was. the Sunday Brunch is a special treat.
