As usual, a visit to this establishment was very satisfying. Great drinks and food, but the service, while courteous and professional, tends to get slow later in the day.

This place has an awesome view no matter what time of day or night you visit. The cocktails are super cool and fancy. They take a cocktail and raise it up to the next level. This place is great for a romantic date or drinks with a gang of friends.

Upscale trendy place that you can go on a summer eve or mid winter. Dress up before dinner or roll off the beach in the summer, Great views. You wont be disappointed. Also you can see great shows from the deck with music from the Stone Pony. Small entrance fee goes to a great charity in Asbury supporting live music.

Been there several times. It can get very crowded so the service can be slow and the prices are high. But it has a great view and nice seating. Good place for a drink on a nice day in the summer after the beach.

One of my favorite places to go. They have the best drinks (their fresh muddled strawberry mohijtos are to die for). It's right along the shore and they have floor to ceilings windows that overlook the ocean. It's really something to see. In the summer, they have a outside deck that is open. The food is very expensive but just... More

The indoor and outdoor view doesn't get any better. Right on the boardwalk in Asbury Park NJ. Sit inside on the comfy hip couches or outside overlooking the ocean and boardwalk while drinking some of the best cocktails around. You can even have your wedding here, vows and the party!!!

What a wonderful evening! We had our wedding celebration at the Watermark in Asbury Park NJ on Friday September 19, 2014. The proprietor Russell Lewis is a class act. He and his staff made our event perfect: From the top shelf signature cocktails, craft beer, wine, plentiful and delicious food to the stunningly beautiful, upscale venue directly on the boardwalk...

Decor was fantastic, It is a fairly large place and it does get packed on the latter part of night and during busy season. Very woody, cabin like feel w/ modernity. Birch tree poles and warm fire place to one end and large bra with wood rings backdrop on the bar surface. Then there is a center area with lots... More

My brother held a marriage celebration here and it was a perfect venue for 100 or so people. Upper level over looking the ocean with a nice bar and cozy lounge chairs for socializing in comfort. Enough room for a band. Inside was plenty of space for dancing and hors d'oeuvres were plentiful and although I didn't eat much, everyone... More
