Turning Point of Manalapan
Manalapan, NJ 07726
Open 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., 7 Days a Week
The Turning Point of Manalapan is located in the Epicenter Plaza next to the Wegmans Market. The Manalapan location was opened due to high customer demand at the Holmdel restaurant. There were a number of requests from our customers to add a Turning Point in the Colts Neck, Freehold and Manalapan area. After searching for over a year we settled on the current location on Route 9.
The Manalapan location had design challenges being an in line store without two sides of windows. The designers at RRD (Ruoff Restaurant Developers) gave the look and the feel that was perfect for the space. The 110 seat restaurant with the open exhibition kitchen and a cozy fireplace room created a comfortable atmosphere that was exactly what the Turning Point of Manalapan needed.
Anticipation for the opening of the restaurant was phenomenal. Everyday we had people popping in and asking us when we would be open. We finished the restaurant on schedule and opened in June of 2003. The first day we opened we had a 30 minute wait with only word of mouth advertising.
The success of the Manalapan restaurant in the first year mirrors the Holmdel location and we are happy that the customers have responded to all of our hard work and the concept that we have created.
