Anniversary dinner

One word fantastic.. Great service, atmosphere, drinks and food! It is always my number one choice in Asbury . Great steak and salads. Mojitos are the best I have ever had. It is also a pleasure waiting for a table as they have a great bar area. The wait staff is always knowledgable and friendly..

This place has such fantastic food - we ate there twice in just 3 nights. You cannot beat the exceptional service, amazing choice of entrees on the menu, beautiful decor and setting whether eating inside or out. They have a covered terrace you can eat on as well as indoors. Nice happy hour and bar inside - very upscale. Highly... More

Wow, what an excellent place. This hidden gem was such a surprise. I can not wait to go again. Busy Saturday, seated promptly. Waiter was amazing!

We see the shows at the Great Auditorium in Ocean Grove and there are very limited restaurants there and they are byobs, however, our friends told us to walk over the bridge near the Auditorium over the small lake and turn left. You will then be in Asbury Park and a block away from Moonstruck. Great place. They have a... More

You will not be disappointed! From great happy hour specials to a full menu (the seared tuna can not be beat!) whether dining out on the balconies overlooking the water or inside, you are sure to enjoy this classy venue.

Moonstruck is a huge favorite of ours. They do not take reservations, but I enjoy having a glass of wine and an appetizer in the first floor lounge. The bruschetta is very nice, and we have also enjoyed the hummus platter. I always get the Filet Mignon, I know, I'm stuck in a rut. It is, however, the best filet... More

It' s Summer and early on a Saturday night and we were looking for a nice meal in Asbury Park. While there are plenty of choices for good food, none can match Moonstruck for delivering to us a really high-quality type of food in a beautiful setting, with service from a staff that turned out to be truly professional.
