My lady & I just had a great evening at Moonstruck. Excellent food and drinks, along with friendly & attentive service. You can't beat that. The downstairs level was comfortable for happy hour, and upstairs, beautiful for dinner. Summertime dining is really nice outside on the upper decks with the Wesley Lake views. Add it for a must do in... More

I live at the Jersey Shore, but IMO there aren't any really good restaurants close by, Asbury Park is about 1/2 hour away, which isn't too unreasonable. It's across the street from Wesley Lake, and it's really pleasant dining on one of the outdoor porches in the summer time. Not an option in the cold weather, but last evening the... More

Over the years I have always been pleased with the quality and creativity of this restaurant. The atmosphere is wonderful and the lively lounge happy hour is always a favorite and extremely well priced. They strive to have seasonal specialties and I have never been sorry with a "special" suggestion.

This is the type of place you take a special someone or celebrate a special occasion. The atmosphere is so refreshing. The view is fabulous and looks out onto the lake. The structure itself is that of an old Victoria home. There is outside seating upstairs and there are two lovely bars inside. The downstairs bar although very small, is... More

Having never been to Moonstruck and on friends reconmendation, I suggested to our friends, two other couples, that we should go there . So! on a chilly Friday in Nov. we went and Boy! was I impressed. Surprisingly the place was packed but didn't have to wait too long for a table. The main floor is where the bar and... More

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,
