Great view

The best part about this place is that it's ON the beach. The outdoor bartender was really nice and gave us some tips about the area. I would avoid the rum runner though; it's basically a spring break type drink/hangover in a cup. Otherwise, awesome spot to check out on the beach!!

Caroline from the Stone Pony recommended we pop in for a rum bucket which we ordered along with our lunch, and we liked them so much we decided to stay another day!

Went there on visit, and saw the fantastic view from bar overlooking beach from convention hall and went in for lunch. The food was good and well presented, my only complaint on food was that my cod sandwich was skimpy on cod. No on tap you had to go to its co owned restaurant The Anchors Bend located inside convention... More

The draw of this place is that is sits right on the beach - nice to sit & have a drink & look at the ocean.

Wow I( cant wait to go again. We stopped off a quick bite and enjoyed our food and drinks. I guess everything on the shore is expensive so we did not over do it

Nice place to hang out with friends. Live music and cold beer always make for a great time. The bar overlooks the beach. When we were here it was fairly quiet but I would imagine that this place would be packed on a warm summer day. Well worth a look.

Two large bars both with ocean views. Drink selections are great, large buckets of whatever you want to drink and service is excellent.

It's located beach front of the Convention Hall, tucked right in the corner for a perfect Asbury Park view. Grab a beach bed, order a Rum Bucket, Guac and chips... Chill and have fun! 'nuf said

Only had drinks there. $8.00 for a gin & tonic in a SMALL little plastic cup. Music was very loud. There are nicer places along the boardwalk to go and enjoy the scenery

I have a more detailed review on Yelp but the service here was terrible. The food was average and quite pricey. They didn't even have what I wanted so I had to pick off my boyfriends plate. Every time we asked for something, it would take 10 or more minutes to get. I would never go back here. The only... More
