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!

Brunch was incredible. Seriously - some of the best food I have ever had. And the atmosphere is super fun. Be sure to sit by the fire overlooking the ocean! And the prices were great!

We have gone to the Continental in AC for our birthday celebrations for several years now and tonight once again did not disappoint. Our server, Stephen, was friendly, efficient, and was there whenever we needed him. We sat outside near the fire pit, which makes you feel cozy when it is winter outside. The tapas style food is great and... More

We visited for lunch and had a mixed experience. Our appetizers were great - the hummus tasted great and was very fresh as were the pitas, and the monkey bread was hot and delicious. The onion dish was average. The meals were a mix. The burgers were delicious with crisp French fries. I opted for a salad and wished I... More

This little gem of what feels like a 5 star restaurant boats amazing ambiance and food right on the boardwalk. If you don't sit around the fire pit, you can sit inside. The dinner, drinks and decor are top notch. And the service is fantastic. When you're done eating you step outside to the corridor which has spectacular views of... More

The review is only about the Continental's Happy Hour which is Monday-Friday from 4-7. They offer specialty cocktails, wines and beer, and food for $5 each. I have to give a shout out to the bartender Nicki who served us on both of our visits there. She is friendly and does a great job. Both times my husband and I... More
