When in Atlantic City, you really want to have a good quick meal. Sometimes, you don't want to go broke on the really high end places. Thats the time to hit happy hour and The Continental located on the Pier across (and accesible) from Caesars is the place. The menu for Happy Hour offers $5 appetizers and $5 drinks. A... More

Unique and a very nice setting. Wait staff was ok, patio furniture not very comfortable, but the view and fire pit were great. Chicken skewers we shared were awesome, crab cakes my wife had were full of crab meat, chicken on waffle that I had was quite a big portion, I loved it. Would definitely go again to try some...

Stopped in for Brunch on a Saturday. Nice table and nice view. Ordered a Bloody Mary and a Mimosa. Then a coffee and 2 orders of huevos rancheros. The food came before the drinks - NOT GOOD. The waitress blamed a back up at the bar, but I suspect she was the delay since the ice had melted in the... More

We have attended The Continental thru the years and are never disappointed. The astronaut martini is a must for us (several are a must). The edge is rimmed with tang just enough to make you want to pucker. The portions are sizeable and meant for sharing. We see many make the mistake of over ordering. We normally stick to our... More

Was there this past Sunday and was not too impressed. We ordered crab cakes they were bite sizes and cold! I expected more since I read the reviews before on here. Service was attentive but too attentive and was getting to be annoying at one point.. We were seated on patio furniture...

Lunch at the Continental was very good. The Mexican City Mule was excellent -- just a small hint of heat at the back of the throat -- not overpowering. The french onion dumplings were different and quite tasty. The only minor issue were the potatoes served with the eggs benedict were overdone. The cuban and cheeseburger sandwiches were good and...

This our second time eating here after staying at Caesar's on Labor Day Weekend. The French Onion Dumplings are to die for and one of the reasons we came back again. By far one our of favorite small plates! The fish tacos are wonderful, not too much but all fresh ingredients and beautiful presentation along with the Buffalo meatballs. So... More

If you are going to be at the Steel Pier mall or Caesars and would like to try a good place for breakfast/lunch/brunch, well certainly this looks to be the place. My first time here after many positive reviews from my nephew. We certainly didn't want to go to the sub-par buffet that is available at every hotel casino. The... More

My boyfriend and I had a fantastic experience here! The food and drinks were amazing. And our server Adam was excellent. He had great suggestions and was super friendly. I recommend Continental to anyone who is looking for great food, service, and atmosphere at a reasonable price. I will definitely be back soon!
