While staying in AC for a shopping trip, my daughters and I went to The Continental for dinner on the recommendation of my elder daughter, who had enjoyed a Continental in another location. We weren't wild about the hexagonal tables, which were awkward for the three of us, but our waitress was knowledgeable and attentive. We started with the quinoa/spinach... More

This is a really interesting hidden spot in the mall. Please look for it! All food that we ordered was great but OMG the desserts!!! Do not miss the opportunity to try all of them!

i went alone so I didn't have the tapas experience. I would go back in a group so I could order a few dishes and sample. The chicken skewers and margarita were great. The service was great. The hostess tried to encourage me to sit at the bar because I was alone, that kind of annoyed me.

It was ok. I wasn't impressed with the menu. The service was good. Didn't get the "WOW" experience. Not sure why!

We went to ac for my birthday. We had bloodymarys which were great but small for the price. My husband and I split the French onion dumplings and the Cuban sandwich. They were both excellent, place was clean, service was friendly, and atmosphere was the best. Will be going back

We ate at The Continental while walking the boardwalk and were super impressed! The food is made to order so when it's done it's brought out so you can have hot food and not wait for others. The drinks were delicious and for being fancy the pricing was great!

Great cocktails, try a couple! There is a champagne cocktail rimmed with pink sugar that is awesome. I've been here for brunch and lunch and while I wasn't crazy about the lunch menu selection I did enjoy the brunch meals, I had great French toast. There is a really fun atmosphere with a fire pit in the front area, I... More

I'm a vegetarian so I had spinach raviolis and a ceaser salad. The meals are small but the waiter lets you know once you sit down. The food was really good and the ceasar salad was huge. The server was friendly, and the environment was breath taking! I would definitely come back.

3 friends, 3 different meals, and they all were FANTASTIC. The service was amazing and the price was pretty reasonable. We also liked the atmosphere at the pier shops in general.

After a long walk on the boardwalk from Margate to AC The Continental is a wonderful breakfast/ resting place. While everything we've tried has been great, we keep coming back to the Huevos Rancheros. It is just the right size in a mini iron skillet. The spice is just right and the black beans are divine. This is an unlikely... More
