Well, if I start off a review saying that a place is 'ok for a beer' than that let's you know where I am going. It is ok for a beer - period. Do you want a beer? They have them. I went here with a few friends and was immediately put off by the female bartender that messed up... More

In December I decided that I would get a few friends together and try Johnny Macs, but we would soon realize this bar was a mistake. I will first start by stating the bar is a nasty mess. The decor is dated and the place itself needs a good cleaning. The manikin in the corner by the bar (all dressed... More

Always the first stop after getting off the train. Free pizza ticket with each drink - you do pay$1 for extra toppings. Good draft beer selection as well. I don't know the bartender's name, but she makes the best bloody mary on Sundays. Sunday has mimosa and bloody mary specials and you get a free omelet ticket. The omelet line... More

This is the bar that gives you street cred in Asbury Park. First off, let me just say that you get a free pizza per drink. A FREE PIZZA. Do I have to say more? Alright I will. After you eat your pizza, and drink your drink, you can find your way over to an abandoned iron oven where there's... More

I went there on Sunday with another couple and had a great time. We got there at 11:30 and had to wait for a table. The place was packed. For every drink you purchase you get a ticket for a free omelette. The omelette was good. Mimosa's and Bloody Mary's are $3.00. There are no waiters or waitresses. You go... More

If you want hepatitis or worse, this is the place to go. I imagine a health inspector has never entered this place. The "bartender" (who happens to run a bartending school lmfao) hands u a pint of beer by grasping it, full fisted, from the top. Palm in my beer. Glasses are "washed" in dirty cold sink. 20 glasses washed... More

Super cool place with free bar pizzas. Late nights can be packed, but the service is usually pretty good. Drinks are reasonably priced, $5 beers and $6 well drinks. Bar tenders are friendly and the security staff is well mannered. Best place I have been in this part of Jersey.

This place is always so crowded that it takes 15 minutes of waiving your money around to get a beer. The weird thing is that it's not a lot of people I think it's the layout of the bar tat makes it seem over packed.
