Reviews & Complaints

One of my favorite places ever. The view is so beautiful that you would want to stay for the 3 meals. Service is beyond amazing. Our waitress Michelle was super nice and had a great attitude. She was checking on us every few and never hesitate to go back and forth to make sure we are having good time. The food was pretty good, I would ask for more varieties for lunch but still enjoyed every piece of it.Again, the view is beyond describing. You would wonder how it looks through all times of the day :)Note: they have different seatings, upstairs and downstairs. I would recommend downstairs on the deck if the weather permits. You will be hearing the water waves slaps on the deck while waiting to the people on boats passing by 🙂

Best kept secret, stellar dining experience. I feel like I’m in a NYC lounge inside a harbor house that overlooks the bay and is across the street from the ocean. Never herd of this place prior and the food was what stole the show. I’ll be the first to admit as an Italian Jewish guy, this pork chop made me question all Jewish dietary restrictions. I was perfect. Seasoned. Juicy, and attention to detail was superb. Don’t tell to many of your friends about this place, perfect for a great memory with a loved one or great friends. Wait time wasnt terrible but crowded for the jersey shore in November! PS. Get the goat cheese fritter – weird presentation until you taste it and then you’ll want a ratio of 1 order for 2 people..if ur party is bigger. Your welcome. Make sure you pair any other app. choice. This way – for people who arrive starving – gives you time to choose the main dish. And far as the rest of my cohorts go; the steak and the fish are worth it.

Made reservations, sat quickly and waitress was very attentive. Very clean restaurant with great decor. Food was absolutely wonderful as we expected. The dessert was extremely delicious too. Please try the rum runner drink as that was very delicious. If you make it, the sunset is amazing!

The atmosphere is wonderful. Love the setting sunsets, just so beautiful! The cuisine is very pleasing. Had the goat cheese appetizer, it is so delicious! The entrée I had was prime rib cooked to perfection, so tender and very tasty. I love this restaurant, my brother and sister in-law bring me here whenever I get up to visit them. Which I wish was more often!

We ate outdoors on the large deck, overlooking the river. The view was lovely and we had a great waiter. The food was delicious (I had the butternut squash ravioli ) The only negative part of this review is i cant recommend the drink, unfortunately, because it was not very tasty (I had the sparkling pom). All in all, though, I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Its lovely.

Was a guest for an event recently.We are all very pleased with all the dishes selected for the nights dinner, chicken, steak, etc were all cooked perfectly, staff was great and attentive and was able to serve our large group well.We were worried about the dessert options as we read se negative reviews on that part, but we’re pleasantly surprised by by quality, just wish there was a bit more per table.
