The Story of Owners
Keith Holmes & John O'Leary...
And how The Redwoods began...

Once upon a time in the little town of Long Valley, there was a successful seafood restaurant. The owner there considered himself very lucky to have working for him two industrious young men. One, the general manager, was a very handsome gentleman, extremely kind and good. The other, the bar manager, was just as handsome, usually kind and sometimes good.

The restaurant owner, to his credit, recognized the unique partnering abilities of the general manager and the bar manager and brought up the subject of perhaps opening another restaurant.

And so the Redwoods was born. Well, actually it wasn't all that simple...

The new restaurant first opened for seven and a half minutes under the name of Monterey Grill and Bar. Well, o.k. it was a little longer than seven and a half minutes- just long enough to print up menus, stationary, and have dozens of new work shirts embroidered. Then, due to "once upon a time" politics, the new trio of owners was forced to change the name. And so Redwoods was born. Finally.

As with all cherished children there were growing pains-and great joys. There were the first baby steps-getting the restaurant cleaned up and functional, requiring a complete and total renovation. Hiring kitchen, bar, and wait stuff. Training. Hiring and firing vendors. New customers. Worrying about details. And worrying about details some more.

The toddler years-a little less worry, but still the fear that something could be split wide open...More hiring. Some firing. Catering added to the list of "what can we accomplish". Customers that kept coming back.

Ah, the teenage years- a little breathing room. The trio became a duo, as the seafood restaurant owner went his own way. The Redwoods building was brought by the general manager and the bar manager and they added the term landlord to their resumes. And those customers? They had become friends.

And suddenly- young adulthood. The Redwoods had become firmly established as the place to go in Chester, NJ. Known for consistently good food, family atmosphere, and friendly, efficient service. The general manager and the bar manager, owners Keith and John, would like to thank you, our customers and friends for our successes.
