Great Pub Food, Music on a Friday Night

Can't go wrong with this pub food - exactly what we were looking for. We stumbled upon this place and are glad we did. There was live music entertainment beginning at 6 p.m. on a Friday night, and the age group enjoyed the 60s and 70s focus of the music. Connolly Station had the requisite flat... read more

The food, both in portion size and quality, are excellent at Connolly Station. The burgers are by far the best food I've had there. I highly recommend the French Onion Burger. Like all burgers, it comes with the option of a side salad or fries, both are good choices. The Carrot Cake is my favorite dessert offering. On Thursdays, Irish... More

We stopped in for a drink and some appetizers. The bbq wings were crispy and delicious. Would definitely have drinks and bar food here again.

fun place to be when they have music. Many locals hang out here which makes the bar scene fun. Music was really good both times I was there. The food is OK but the bar is fun. Ive have been there a couple times on steak night, which was worth the money. Otherwise, best to stick to nacho's or chicken... More

I do not recommend this place, I will never go there again, 2nd time was way worst than the 1st. Horrible food and service. Brought my parents to see Bobby Byrnes, made reservations told them it was their 60th, they gave us the absolute crabby table possible. The service was went down hill soon after placing our order, got water... More

The most recent review "Bad Service" speaks to the crowd that hangs out here during the season. The most horrific fatal accident in Belmar in years, started at this same establishment at the beginning of the season. Unfortunately this restaurant/bar is in it for the money and care little about the food and service. But if you want to relax... More

Heres the type of service to expect from this place....... The other night my friends and I were at Connolly Station having a good time until we were randomly attacked by some degenerates for no reason at all. This guy tried fighting me for no reason then grabbed my girl by the hair and threw her on the ground...The bouncers... More

Apparently this location (the old Pat's Tavern for those who remember back that far) is now a cool bar hangout for the "shore crowd." Well, the night we went must have been senior citizen night because there was an older duo singing and telling jokes and a large crowd of blue haired ladies and gents shuffling along to the beat....

Connolly Station makes the best corned beef sandwich, in my opinion. I stop in for one a few times throughout the year. They also have a pretty decent menu with plenty of choices, and prices are reasonable.
