One of my favorite restaurants, although the "family style" gimmick is just a ploy to get you to buy more food as you can easily order an entree each. There is a view of the ocean depending on where you sit. The fire pit and moat are really fun and the food is very good.

I read other reviews about this restaurant and I had high expectations going in. The restaurant did not disappoint!!! The atmosphere is very relaxing and chill, the waiters are friendly and helpful, and the décor is nice on the eye. The most important thing is the food though!!! Absolutely hit the spot!!! We even came back the next day to... More

It's a great restaurant for trying things and sharing. The food is always fresh and light and very tasty. I love the calamari salad. Desserts and drinks are wonderful. The ambience is lovely and women - don't forget to check out the ladies' room

Family and friends included a party of nine. We had reservations for 6:30 on the Saturday of the 4th of July weekend. Arrived at 6:25 and were seated at 7:05. Not bad. It was very busy but we were waited on quickly for drinks. The cocktails were generous portions and very good. Now the restaurant is unique. I say this... More

My husband and I stopped in today for lunch and I'm very glad we did! Everything we had was absolutely delicious: from my tropical smoothie and Cuban with fries to my husbands French onion soup dumplings and Philly cheesesteak egg rolls. Top notch fare. And how can you beat the view in this heat? Ocean views from a very modernly... More

Great place to enjoy dinner with family and friends. Stopped in the Continental for an early dinner on a rainy day. Drinks were great. Many different food styles from chicken and waffles to seafood all served "family style" made it not only a delicious meal but also a real fun way to spend the evening. Even our teenage boys said...

Fourth time there and it gets better and better. Never noticed how amazing the view is from the bar. Staff is efficient and friendly. Love this place.

Went to an early dinner with my family and was quite surprised with the food. Had the shoestring French fries for an appetizer. Our entrees consisted of a chicken Caesar salad, quesadilla dish, cheesesteak eggrolls & ravioli dish. All were consumed, no leftovers.

Beautiful location with views of the ocean and beach. I've been to the Philly location and this location was just as great. Definitely order the cheesesteak eggrolls with sriracha ketchup as an appetizer!!! The lobster mac & cheese is another Steven Starr staple. My boyfriend and I ate here for my birthday, which included a complimentary dessert. You really can't... More
