Sean W. Toohey, General Manager

Our goal is to make the Red Oak Grille restaurant and lounge your favorite place to enjoy outstanding, flavorful, tasteful and unique food selections at an attractive price range, and to entertain you in our friendly bar/lounge.

After 25+ years in the private Club industry, I am very excited to manage the outstanding New Jersey National Golf Club and the Red Oak Grille restaurant.


Chef Julio Castellanos

Working under Chef David Felton and Chef Juan Jose Cuevas, Castellanos learned the proper techniques to fuse French cuisine with international dishes and the proper way to bring the farm to the table. In running the kitchen, Chef Julio is able to express contemporary, simple representation of both old favorites and more adventurous dishes. “The Red Oak’s new menu features American cuisine with international influences. We all look forward to Chef Julio’s epicurean creations.”  Read Press release here
