Stella beachfront

Great location on the southern end of the asbury boardwalk. Two levels with ocean views, a bar and good italian food. Bar pizzas are our favorite, and seafood specialties are very good. Staff needs to get their act together.

Stella Marina is and easy walk from the charming B&B's of Ocean Grove. It is directly on the boardwalk with plenty of outdoor seating with ocean views. Our server, Emily, was pleasant and efficient. We had Caesar salad ($11.95), Salmon ($25.95), spaghetti and meatballs ($14), linguini and clams ($24.95), and pork Valdo ($26.95). They were all great and each of... More

Had lunch today and was very disappointed. One of the specials was a salad with tuna, green beans, asparagus, arugula, olives. It was primarily an arugula salad with a smidgen of tuna, a few green beans, one small piece of asparagus and a couple slices of olives. My dining partner had a pizza and said it was the worst pizza... More

Went to Stella Marina for the first time on 4/18/15. Made a reservation, but that didn't make a difference. The hostess podium was extremely disorganized. I've never seen a restaurant more in need of a pager system. We were told for 30 minutes that our table was being cleaned off. When we sat down we already knew what to order... More

Sit at the bar and look across the boardwalk to the sea spray flying off the waves. Any time of year this view is wonderful. We enjoy the pizzas (fig with goat cheese, caramelized onion, and Rosemary is tasty) to share, and the light fixtures fascinate me!
