I recently dined at Moonstruck in Asbury Park, NJ. This restaurant is located in the center of the redeveloped section of Asbury Park and is situated in a spacious three story building. Each floor has its own bar, and on the first level, a small three piece band was playing. There is more than ample parking adjacent to this restaurant.... More

I have been driving by Moonstruck for years and finally tried it. Wonderful food! Excellent atmosphere! Great service! Well worth the price. Moonstruck is truly a dining experience. My server Ed was great. He did not rush my table at all, but instead checked in at the appropriate times. There was a pleasant gap between our appetizer, entree and desert.... More

Should be named Moon-stunk. The food quality is NOT what it was when it first opened up. However, the staff is very friendly and ambience is still romantic. We sat at the bar and had the following: Whole Wheat Pizza with Arugula & Mushroom and my friend had the Skirt Steak (med. rare) with fries. The pizza had so much... More

I hadn't been to Moonstruck since it moved to Asbury Park and I found it much improved. I had a delicious Caesar salad, a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, warm whole wheat Italian bread and butter, and whole wheat penne with chicken and wild mushrooms. Everything was delicious and the server was warm, attentive, and professional.

Our friends have told us about this place for a long time. We finally gave it a try. Both our meals were excellent along with the service. We loved the atmosphere! Officially on our go to list.

During that time we were not offerred any additional food or drink. The waitress brought my fiance's red wine to be paired with his fillet dinner at... More

We were looking for a place to stop to have a small meal. It was late (by my standards) on Sunday night. We were sitted very quickly even though we were told it would be a 30 minute wait. We sat on the wrap around porch overlooking the lake . The staff was very pleasant and the service was outstanding... More

Our third year in Ocean Grove and our fourth dinner at Moonstruck. Pleasant service from experienced staff and consistently good food. Eating on the wraparound porches very nice if the weather cooperates.
