Good local food and atmosphere

Have eaten here a few times. We always enjoy the views of the bay while dining, and the interior decorations. And, of course, the food is great and the service good.

My first Bahr's experience was 61 years ago as a 10 year old. The excellence has been retained after all those years and any visit to NJ will always include lunch or dinner at Bahr's. The building is beyond compare, the view incredible and the food is fresh and prepared with care. The fish are literally brought onto Bahr's dock,... More

Hands down, the very best crab cake ever. I want more NOW!!! My friend had the New England Clam chowder and the shrimp cocktail that she enjoyed. This is a must stop.

This rest has been there for many years and we still continue to go. After a day at Sandy Hook Nat Seashore the food calls us (steamers, crab, chicken as well as meat for land lubbers). Service is informal as is the site overlooking the river and sea. The belly is full after a day in surf. Its fresh................

It has been years that we visited Bahrs Landing Seafood Restaurant until couple of weeks ago when we stopped for dinner while driving through the nearby coastal towns. The seafood fresh, sweet and delicious and the wait staff attentive. Watching the sunset on the horizon with a drink is a great way to end the day.

The layout of the sitting area is agreeable to all. View of the Navesink and Bridge add to the atmosphere. Perfect for a summer relaxing Lunch or Dinner. The menu is diverse, something for everyone.

Sat on the outside deck overlooking the water. Service was decent and the food was very good. It was one of those great evenings with good wine, good food, good view and low humidity. A delight all the way around!!!

Appropriate due to its situation on the marina, the seafood was great. Large portions are the norm here. Be sure to visit the bar upstairs and figure out the wood plaque anagram .

This is my 3rd review of this establishment and my second for this year. As stated in previous reviews, this was for more than 20 years our go-to restaurant after a day at the beach. We've taken friends and family there multiple times and always enjoyed both the food and the scenery. My last review stated that the food was... More

This is a standby for shore-goers. The food is fresh, well-prepared and generally delicious. They know how to cook lobster- steamed or grilled- and their prices are fair. Their chowder and fish dishes, including the seafood platters, are very good- not too heavy on the breading. They make good drinks and have an acceptable wine list. The view over the... More
