Including Freehold Boro, East Freehold, West Freehold, and all of the other little sub communities that are nestled in this Western Monmouth area, Freehold is huge! The Township itself is listed at over twelve thousand residents, according to the last census. So, logic would dictate that the more people there are, the more kick ass bars and restaurants there would be. Well the County Seat doesn’t disappoint.
There are literally dozens of places to grab a bite or knock back a brew. However, when it comes to Sunday NFL Football watching, there are a few spots that I personally believe are head and shoulders above the rest. A few I have been to once, maybe twice, while some others I have frequented for years. The one thing they all have in common, at least for this list, is that they all made a positive impression on me as solid Sunday options for football viewing.
The thing about Freehold is that unlike other communities I’ve written about this week; Belmar/Lake Como, and Red Bank for example, it’s so expansive that outside of downtown, it’s not a walking town. No, these are places you have to drive to, unless of course you live around the corner. So bar hopping from game to game as I suggested earlier in the week is not an option here. Find a place, get comfortable, and get ready for an afternoon of gridiron action!
Another great thing about the places on this list is that they are really all family friendly places. The kind of place you don’t mind bringing your kids to have some wings or pizza and a pitcher of Coke to watch some football. Not every place is like that these days, so it’s nice to know that there are still sports bars in the area that are so welcoming. Well enough build up, lets get to the list… The greater Freehold Area!
