We got here on a Saturday morning as it opened. I was a bit skeptical at first as the guy who greeted us seemed a bit out of it and was wearing a stained shirt. We had our choice of seating since it early, so we picked a table in the front by the firepit, which had a great ocean/beach... More

This place has it all - good atmosphere, good food and good drinks. What's not to like? Well, the restaurant is not very large so you may be in for a long wait or just turned away. No problem though. It was suggested that we sit at the bar since the dinner menu is offered. While everyone has their own... More

I ate here with my wife and it was excellent! The waitress was very nice and knowledgable of the food and drink menus. Tried some sangria, which was great, and started with the Korean pork tacos. Delicious choice with a nice kick of heat! Wife went with lobster orzo. Great dish with good flavor and nice chunks of lobster. I... More

Wow is how I would start to describe the food. Cheese steak egg rolls are out of the world. Salads that are huge. Fantastic drinks and very nice staff for summer help. This is a nice place to eat for lunch or dinner.

I was looking for something special and unique. This is a place. We were 4 adults and got 5 appetizers and dessert for about $ 80. Portions were small but we felt full on just appetizers. Ok, we had no men in the group. So it was just enough for 4 ladies. Waiter was great - and I have lots... More

Enjoyed the variety and creativity - I may never find fish tacos to equal theirs! Some of the dishes that my companions shared included Thai lettuce wraps, roasted Brussel sprouts, prime rib medallions, fried chicken with buttermilk bacon waffles, grilled chicken with sticky rice - just to name a few - each thing was unique and delicious - presentation was...

The Continental is a place I have been going to for years. I always dine whenever I am in AC, usually for lunch. The dishes are inventive! Some of my favorites are the french onion soup dumplings, korean tacos, cheesesteak eggrolls, and the red pepper feta dip. Everything I have tried, I have enjoyed. Service has always been good as...

We had 3 appetizers... Barbecue chicken quesidias with avocado sour cream (FANTASTIC), Shrimp and Calamari (AWESOME), and the chicken skewers (SO GOOD!). Mixed drinks were a little expensive at $11 each, but were also fantastic. Sit out by the fire pit, which overlooks the ocean. Nice vibe, friendly service. Great place for happy hour.

Three of us stopped in at The Continental for Happy Hour the other night and I'm so glad we did. We like hitting the Happy Hours to save a little cash and still have quality selections. At The Continental there is a delicious happy hour menu and all the items are $5. We had falafel, hummus and pita chips, buffalo... More
