Lamb shank was excellent. It is a BYOB which is always a good thing. However, the wait staff was young and inexperienced. (We asked fo... More

My wife and I recently discovered Lemon and have since added it to the restaurants we regularly enjoy in the Freehold area. It's not located on Freehold's "restaurant row" in the center of town, but it's well worth "finding". The menu is a splendid mix of selections.... "kudos" to the chef. I've tried several appetizers and entrees..... I've never been... More

Had dinner with the family here for the first time. Lemon is our new favorite go-to restaurant. The menu selections are Greek-inspired Mediterranean. We shared apps that were incredible. The rice balls, feta zucchini pancakes, faro salad & beet salad were amazing. The pita & hummus that automatically comes to the table is like crack. We were just about licking... More

As most of Monmouth and Ocean County diners flock to the shore, Lemon Restaurant shines brightly among inland establishments. Located along the busy Route 9 corridor in Freehold, the restaurant is a mecca for inventive, satisfying and fresh dishes from the surprisingly large universe that is the Mediterranean. Embracing the flavors of Iberia, the Maghreb, Greece, Italy and Asia Minor,... More

Great food and service. Live background music making this such a nice evening. It's a BYOB and they truly care about every detail. Can be a bit pricey but food is delicious.

I stopped into Lemon during my lunch break and ordered a Lamb Burger to go. It was so delicious I went back the next day. Today I had their Buffet Lunch. For under $12.00 - less than a Wawa sandwich, you can experience the best food I have had in New Jersey. The decor is warm and inviting. The staff... More
