Great food, great service, wonderful atmosphere. The cuisine was more than ample, flavorful, presented nicely. The waitstaff was friendly and professional. This is a "must" for anyone visiting the area. Represents the best of the new Asbury Park!

We have been long time fans of Moonstruck, however our opinion changed when we were treated so discourteously by the front desk staff. We had out of town friends come to visit us and we selected dinner at Moonstruck for their food and atmosphere. Although we had an hour and a half wait for a table - there were 8... More

If you get a table on one of the porches, go there a night when there are fireworks. Otherwise, overpriced and noisy,

For years, beginning when Moonstruck was a small storefront restaurant in Ocean Grove, the owners have always strived to make Moonstruck the number 1 restaurant in eastern Monmouth County. They continue to excel!

We went here on a Wednesday night in October, so the place was quiet. The bar was on the first floor. The Maitre de took our coats and we joined our friends at the bar. Shortly thereafter we went to the dining area located on the second floor. We had the place to ourselves, with only one other couple snuggled... More

They do have a massive turnover during the warmer months (asked the server). Food/Drinks were good. There is outside dining but have not had that experience. No reservations taken unless... More
