When it comes down to restaurants on the New Jersey shore, Bahr's Landing has to be one of my absolute favorites. While heading down the shore to The Clam Bar Restaurant, we learned that The Clam Bar had been lost during Hurricane Sandy. A local directed us to Bahr's Landing, which had received damage to their downstairs area but still... More

I really enjoyed this restaurant, best seafood bisque and homemade biscuits. Each guest gets a small bowl of coleslaw and oyster crackers before your meal. Seafood was fresh and very well seasoned, not overbearing just enough to bring out the freshness of the seafood.The view is overlooking the Sandy Hook bay. Theres an outdoor deck dining area for boats that... More

Bahrs Landing is in its second century and still dishing up good fish and showing off a great view. Decor is just right: dark colors lead our eyes to wrap-around windows with a panorama of boats, water, sun, and sky. And then our hostess seats us at a great table by the window, without the usual begging on our part.... More

Bahrs is great. Service was fast and food was pretty great despite what most of the Shore has to offer. Food was delicious. Get the pretzels and fish wrap. Looking forward to coming back!

I've been coming to Bahrs for 30 years, always good food but I think that Tuesday evening was my last time for good. When ordering we asked that no parsley be put on one order and when served I reminded her we asked for it without. She just said that the way it is. I order steamers but they were... More

A great restaurant on the shore. We were greeted as soon as we entered the restaurant and our reservation was honored immediately. A table by the water which we did not expect. In addition to their regular menu we had the Octoberfest menu and 3 of us took advantage of that. The food was outstanding, the service exceptional, just a... More
