OCREA Luncheon



The Mainland Holiday Inn Manahawkin

By Janice Sovinee, Luncheon Chair

As of March 28, 2017 the Manahawkin Holiday Inn was sold to Mercer Management and the new name is The Mainland Holiday Inn Manahawkin. The address and phone number are still 151 Route 72 West, Manahawkin 08050, (609) 481-6100 on Thursday, March 15th from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM. For our new members, the following directions may be helpful. Going South on the Parkway, take Exit 63 and continue on Route 72 going East. Going North on the Parkway, take Exit 63A. After you exit the Parkway to route 72, the hotel will be on the right. Please go directly to the rear parking lot as the entrance most accessible to the dining area will be in the back of the hotel.

Our luncheon menu will begin with a Caesar salad served with assorted rolls and whipped butter. Please select one of the entrees as follows: Roast Sirloin of Beef, Au Jus, OR Chicken Francaise, OR Seared Salmon with Dill Sauce. These selections will be accompanied by Dutchess Potato and fresh vegetables. Our dessert will be New York cheesecake with raspberry puree. Pitchers of water, Diet Cola and regular Sprite will be on the tables. 100% Colombia regular or decaf coffee or herbal tea will be served with dessert. A cash bar will be available to all within the dining room.

Please indicate: #1) if there is a need for a gluten-free or vegetarian dish and #2) each person’s meal choice.
