Moonstruck has always been a favorite restaurant of mine... My family and I went on Friday and as always, the food was out of this world!!! The service.. EVEN better (if that is possible). It is like eating at a 5 star restaurant, but with really kind and attentive staff that make you feel like you are welcome and like... More

I have been debating writing this review for days out of a real concern that the Moonstruck Host who is the nastiest person I have encountered despite eating in the best and most upscale restaurants in the world, including the very snooty Eiffel Tower. Due to his personality, I will most likely be barred from the restaurant after this is... More

Ok, it was hard not to hum to that song and think of that funny movie of the same name. Have to admit it put me in a good mood before I arrived. Moonstruck's exterior of a multi-level victorian style near the lake was very charming - to enjoy a cocktail outside or have dinner, while inside is just as... More

Moonstruck s probably the oldest restaurant to survive the return of downtown Asbury (though it is on the side opposite Cookman, on the lake), and that's due to its outstanding service, food, and atmosphere. Not cheap, but go online for specials.

We loved this restaurant ! Its located overlooking a lake just a few minutes from the Boardwalk by car or short cab ride. Its just a special place, the food was delicious and the service was excellent. We ate out on the deck, it was a Thursday night and the restaurant was busy. Its just a must eat at place.... More

This was our first time at this Asbury Park restaurant and we were not disappointed. It is set in a beautiful building that has three floors with balcony seating. There are no reservations taken but there is a bar where you can order food if you like while you wait. When we came in on a Saturday night we were... More

Wonderful service and restaurant. Sesame Grilled Tuna was fantastic. Thai grilled salmon was disappointed compared to the tuna. Tiramusu was very good.

We've only dined here twice - once a few years ago when I really had the best dinner ever (short ribs). We came back a few weeks ago and although it wasn't terrible, the entrees were so so. This time we arrived early on a Sunday afternoon, the restaurant wasn't open yet but we were greeted warmly and sat at... More

My husband and I have been going to Moonstruck ever since it was in Ocean Grove. ( I liked it better then) If anyone would ever ask what my favorite restaurant is I would not even have to think and Moonstruck would be my choice. That is not the case any longer. I am willing to pay for excellent food,... More
