Local Spot Hi Point

This is where the locals hang out. good pub food and great drink specials. Think Cheers in Absecon nothing over the top or fancy. No need to dress up great beer selection

I went to Hi-Point to catchup with an old friend. From the moment I walked in the door, I felt welcomed as the staff greeted me. Stopped at the bar for a drink before my friends got there. Bartender very nice. The food is what got me. You'd never suspect food in a little local bar to be that grand,... More

it was just OK.... It seemed to be a neighborhood/Cheers type place. Folks were polite but we got a lot of wide eyes when we came in.

Service was a bit slow. food was OK...nothing to write home about. My husband ordered a veal chop and my friend duck. both got generous portions but neither was stella in taste. My cheesedteak was excellent. It's a pub - stick with burgers, sandwiches and appetizers and you should be fine. Leave fancier food to other places.

I am local living in Absecon and I can say I never had a bad experience at the Pub. The bartenders are very attentive and make an awesome Washington apple shot poured on a double shooter. THE CRAB BISQUE AND CRAB SPINACH ARTICHOKE DIP IS AMAZING AND CRAB LOVERS MUST HAVE!!!! Great Dive bar if you're visiting, try to get... More

Have eaten from Hi Point Pub many times before. HIgh Point Specials and fries were delicious and the Crab Bisque so Good. Wood recommend the Crab Bisque but it's a little pricey worth every penny thou.

Always good food... Specials can be very good. Prices a standard, and value always seems to be good.... Dinners or sandwiches., either are always tasty and they give a good portion of food. Weekends during football season can be rather noisy but then that's as it should be.
