Manalapan’s Bonefish Grill Reaches Out

Bonefish Grill celebrated its newest New Jersey location, in Manalapan, with a grand opening charity event benefiting The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties.

On Saturday, January 25, Bonefish Grill hosted an evening full of restaurant favorites, refreshing cocktails, and music while raising $7,340 for the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties. With the funds raised, the FoodBank can provide over 22,000 meals and continue the mission to alleviate hunger and build food security in Monmouth and Ocean Counties.

“After many years in the restaurant industry, I thought there was no better way to open this restaurant than with the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties,” said Darryl Brophy, managing partner of the new Manalapan Bonefish Grill. “This partnership gave us the opportunity to really give back to our new community doing what we do best—feeding people. We look forward to welcoming all of Manalapan through our doors to experience our big-city bar, attentive chef’s coat service, and delicious, fresh fare.”

Patrons of Bonefish Grill’s newest location can expect their “fresh fish experts” to bring wood-grilled fish, seafood, and a selection of chicken and steak options, innovative sauces, and indulgent desserts to the Manalapan community. Diners can visit Bonefish Grill for lunch, dinner and even brunch on Sundays featuring items such as surf and turf eggs benedict and crème brulee French toast.

In Manalapan, guests can make reservations through Bonefish Grill’s new, convenient online reservation system. With a few simple clicks, guests will be able to book their polished-casual experience online at or by calling 732-431-7608.
