Just days ago I was wondering what's replacing the old Ruby Tuesday on Rt. 70 in Lakewood.

So many of you wrote me and told me what you want to see replace Ruby Tuesday in that location. Wow, lots of great suggestions.

I'm always thinking that's Brick there on Rt. 70. It's confusing because right up the road is The Christmas Tree Shoppe and that's Brick. Brick, Lakewood, and then it runs into Toms River. Maybe I'm the only one that gets confused there and that's Ok.

Ruby Tuesday always had one of my favorites for cheeseburgers. I went to the one on Rt. 70 a lot. When checking out Ruby Tuesday's website the three restaurants are no longer on it. When Ruby Tuesday closed, it was when the pandemic had restaurants closed inside. Like several restaurants in Ocean County, was it due to financial reasons? It's time for something to fill that space next to Starbucks.

It's still so sad to see empty buildings. This place needs to be replaced with something good. It's a great location and the perfect location for a restaurant. Please, no office building.

What are you thinking Brick needs? Recently, I wrote an article about Quaker Steak & Lube and so many of you gave me great ideas on what you want to see there. Sonic was a huge suggestion and of course, Cracker Barrel. This could be a great location for Cracker Barrel. Brick needs a Cracker Barrel. Cracker Barrel was the "big" answer, here's your complete list of suggestions:
