Restaurant Week Dinner

We went here during the Jersey Shore Restaurant Week. We paid $30.15 per person for three courses. It was a good deal! My husband and I both started with the roasted beet salad and had the ahi tuna for our entrees. The salad was very good, with hearts of palm, chopped roasted beets, grilled... read more

Visited for Jersey Shore Restaurant Week, but would be hard pressed to return as there are other, better restaurants that are closer to home or worth the drive. Husband and I both had calamari as appetizers. Generous portion as appetizer, esp for Restaurant Week. Calamari was not very crispy and honestly seemed frozen. Even the Thai chili sauce did not...

I took my father, mother, and best friend to celebrate my dad's birthday during restaurant week. The restaurant is decorated beautifully with an open kitchen and friendly staff. They started us out with bread with chili oil and parmesan cheese crisps, both which were really yummy. My mom and friend ordered the New England clam chowder as an appetizer. They... More

Had the best dinner with a group of 7 this Friday night which happened to be their opening night. Everything was so smooth. Waiters and waitresses were on point with the specials and menu items memorized. Food came out in a good timely fashion. We didn't feel rushed. At all! The owner and chef came and sat with us to...

Everything about this place is incredible! From the happy staff, to the insanely delicious food, to the beachy atmosphere...everyone loves a BYOB, and conveniently, there is a liquor store across the street. Hands down, the best lobster and crab stuffed Mahimahi I've ever had in my life. And a free little morsel of information...GET POPPYS CHEESECAKE!!! Fresh handmade homemade cheesecake... More

Visited on an evening when they offered a prix fixe menu. Lots of delicious choices and lots to eat. We very much enjoyed the meal. Although the restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, it's very nice inside. Definitely worth a visit!

Thank you for your kind words. We are happy you enjoyed your dinner. We hope our off season renovations we are working on increase our outside curb appeal to match the dining experience inside. Mahalo More

this place is so excellent reservations are a must! If you are a walk in kind of customer I'd go when they open at 5:00pm otherwise you'll have to make a reservation for another day, and I've learned this through experience! This is because the food is always great and consistent and the waitstaff is knowledgable and welcoming. It's a... More

The food is excellent. The staff is knowledgable and very friendly. The restaurant is vey clean with an open view to the kitchen which is always fun. And it's just down the block from the beach with a liquor store across the street in case you run out. I have always had a great night there.

While visiting some friends in Seaside Heights for New Years we decide to check out their favorite place, Ohana Grill. I decided to order the curry dish to see how it stacked up with how my mother would make it. She wouldn't be happy to hear how much better it tasted but it was fantastic. For dessert they had two...
