Sea Bass....mmmm mmmm

I have been to this Steven Starr restaurant several times in the past few months. The food is well, prepared, aesthetically tasteful and delicious. The Chilean Sea Bass especially stands out. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is great. Everything from apps to desserts was top notch.

When I saw The Continental was part of the Starr Restaurant Group, knew I had some money to burn on a gift card and knew we would be in Atlantic City for a few days…the choice was made that we were going! I had been trying to get to this place for some time. The restaurant is located in the... More

Have been here a few times for Sunday brunch. They have an extensive menu sure to satisfy everyone's tastes and preferences. My non-vegetarian husband ordered the veggie burger and we both agreed it was an amazing burger! Can't wait to go back to get my own. Good food, good service and usually a good view of the ocean.

We were generally disappointed with dining in AC but very happy with our experience at this restaurant. The setting on the Pier is excellent and there are several seating options including a fire pit which seemed very popular. These people understand customer service and everyone encountered did a great job. Interesting food choices based around American- Fusion food. Very good... More

On our first trip to Atlantic City, we ate here after going on the disgusting boardwalk. It's located on the 3rd floor of Caesars and claims to overlook the ocean and boardwalk but that's only if you sit in the open area by the main floor. Even then, your view is quite far away. Still nice to catch a glimpse... More

Ever since my best friend introduced me to this place years ago I've been hooked. I've been for dinner with her, lunch with a group, date night with my husband, drinks at the bar, brunch...it delivered on every occasion. You can try a ton of options without breaking the bank. My personal favorites are the French onion soup dumplings and... More

I had gone by The Continental when visiting A.C. a year earlier and wanted to try it out. I went there for lunch after gambling at Bally's and went to spend some of my winnings. I was by myself and sat at the bar. The bartender was very nice and accommodating. I had a chicken sandwich which was very good... More

Had a really great vegetarian meal with a beautiful view and nice atmosphere. Drink menu was interesting and would love to try many drinks on the menu with friends. Meals were priced right for big portions. Great meals to share with friends. Will definitely visit again!

Been there on many occasions. Always delicious and plentiful. Calamari salad and shoestring fries are a must. Also good: Cheese steak rolls, sliders, ribs, fish tacos. Service is always super fast and very attentive. The only wish they could change menu more often. And you got to check out those bathrooms!

I was so excited to try the restaurant. I was seated quickly but literally right on top of another couple dining (I was solo on a business trip). I waited 15 minutes and the server never came. So I left....the hostess didn't even notice. I ended up at Gordon Ramsay's new Pub...which must have been meant to be because I... More
