A unique spot on the island. Lunch was very good and the view was nic even on a rainy day

Stopped for a quick bite to eat after looking at some houses. First time there and the service was fast and with a smile, food was hot and good size portions. Enjoyed the view even though it was raining. Had the crab cak sandwich and the patty was good. Seemed to have a little more filler than... read more

Pirates Den is always a locals favorite. Great food, reasonable prices, nice staff. Visitors will love the Pirates Den because of its charm located at the very end, or beginning of Brigantine Island.

This restaurant is at the very North End of Brigantine Island. It is a little secluded from my perspective, but it is an amazing place to go for a great meal. Very modest and unassuming furnishings and decor, but I never went to restaurant to enjoy the interior decorations, I went there for the food and the service. In my... More

This is a very well known spot for breakfast but we decided to try them out for dinner. They let us bring our own bottle of wine with no extra fee. The dinner was great - we had sea food Fra Diablo and the shrimp armondo The owner even came by to introduce himself and recommended a good place in... More

The old adage " don't judge a book by it's cover" definitely holds true here. If this restaurant had not come recommended for breakfast, I might have driven right passed it. Boy, that would have been a big mistake. I would have missed out on the the best omelet I have ever eaten.! My wife is one for trying something... More

On a whim, we decided to go to Brigantine and enjoy the Autumn day. We stumbled upon the Pirates Den and thought we would try it for our lunch. You could tell the Pirates Den is not a summer only restaurant (tourist), but a local and has been in business for many years. That should tell you something about the... More

Was looking for a breakfast option other than casino buffets and was sent to The Pirates Den at the valet counter. Great suggestion! Fresh cooked meal in a beautiful location across from the beach. Excellent friendly service and delicious food! The pumpkin walnut pancakes are definitely worth the ride!
