“After completing college, Ruoff spent a brief time away from the restaurant industry where his focus was dealer consultant for Toyota Motor Sales. He returned to his passion following Toyota and received multi-unit restaurant management experience with Brinker International’s Chili’s Bar and Grill in Holmdel, NJ. While in Holmdel, he led the restaurant to achieve the highest unit level performance in the Chili’s system. After two years, he left to attain his personal goal of creating an upscale breakfast and lunch restaurant. In 1998 Mr. Ruoff purchased a failing lunch and dinner restaurant in Little Silver, NJ and the “Turning Point” concept was born.”
Today, his Turning Point restaurants can be found across the state with locations in Brick, Cherry Hill, Hoboken, Little Silver, Holmdel and Long Branch. Turning Point also has six locations in Pennsylvania and one opening soon in Delaware.
So what makes Turning Point different? The food here just feels cleaner, fresher and is more evolved than your traditional “eggs, bacon and potato” diner fare. They have taken traditional American breakfast, cleaned it up and upscaled it just a bit.
They offer fresh squeezed orange juice, smoothies, French press coffee, an espresso bar and a wide range of teas.
As far as breakfast goes, they have pretty much anything you need, each offering with its own unique twist.
Breakfast here also easily scales to brunch with a full lunch menu of soups and sandwiches making for a perfect holiday brunch destination also.
