Saturday night at Gina's. Long wait, as usual, but who cares? Friendly customers at the bar. Meet new people every year. Larry, Ross and the bartender always seem to remember us. Food just gets better every year. Waitstaff loves to talk and tell us about the latest. For us, it is a "do not miss" place on each visit to... More

We go to Gina's once or twice during each summer. We always love it. We used to try to go early so as not to have to wait. There are no reservations. Now we just go, put our name in, and go for a walk on the beach. It's so gorgeous to view the sunset and then go back and... More

Gina's is always crowded by the service is great from the parking lot to dessert! Italian food is tops and seafood is as well. A wonderful place for families. Open for Dinner only, at 5PM. Thursday - Sunday.

Gina's is one of those restaurants that thrives on word of mouth. We have been patrons for 20 years and it just gets better. The fresh preparations and use of flavor are way above the menu prices. Scamp ala Gina's is a perfectly cooked plate of pasta, succulent shrimp, garlic, fresh mushrooms and sauteed baby tomatoes. The salad is included... More

Small, dark bar area. Front room a little more airy, back dining area can be romantic. Food has always been superb. Popular, with a crowded and small parking area. Mostly open seasonally and weekends. CALL BEFORE YOU GO! You will enjoy!

I don't understand the few negative reviews but everyone likes something different. For me the sauce (gravy for some) is wonderful. We can't get past ordering the veal parm. It is wonderful. A few years ago I would finish the whole meal, but now I just finish the veal and have the pasta the next day. The waitstaff works hard... More

Very rustic seaside setting. Open thursday thru sunday and no reservations. Small bar packed with locals. We got there at 530 and were seated by 6. I loved everything about this place. Inexpensive, large servings, homey atmosphere and lots of people watching. There was so much food we ate half of it at home the next night. This is not... More

Ate here all summer, at least six times. The fresh seafood specials are the way to go. Swordfish, Shrimp, Mussels they have great starter specials also. Oysters and Garlic bread were our go to. This place has been around awhile. Wicked nice service. We grabbed a bottle of the house dijon salad dressing it lasted two days.
