Still very cool that this still stands in Asbury, one of the few thins left from my younger days. They renovated the Paramount inside yrs ago and it's like the old days - Saw Yellow Submarine there in 60's. Still good for shows in both venues.

This is my first review for this place but I have been here several times...then put money into this place and it shows the acoustics in here when you see an event or a performer you just can't beat it...and the location is fabulous when you're done you walk right out to the beach how much better can it get

Needs updating. The coffee shop has good coffee but not so good muffins (very greasy). Stores need to post their hours of business.
