Best Meal in Margate?

[Just to be clear I am reviewing the indoor upstairs restaurant at Ventura's Greenhouse]. When asked, most will point to Tomato's or Steve & Cookies when asked for the best dinner in Margate. Not to take away from either of the above as both are delicious, however the upstairs restaurant at the... read more

We've been dinning at Ventura's for over 30 years now, and we find it to be consistently delicious! The flavors of the dishes are always tongue slapping good! Incredibly attentive servers just top notch at the Jersey Shore!

Decent meal, the food was pretty good. Limited menu in the deck but the atmosphere is worth it. Nice view of Lucy. Prices were reasonable.

After taking a dinner recommendation from an area hotel, I ventured to the beach and found this gem. Located next to the Lucy the Elephant and I thought I had been sold a bill of goods but walked in anyway and would return in a heartbeat! The lobster bisque made my critical grade but the crab tower appetizer was outstanding!!... More

What an evening! Four people being offered great service (Tara) and great food. The veal parmesan was huge and very tasty with a robust sauce. One of our party couldn't eat it all. Veal marsala with capellini was THE best I've ever sampled with a sweet and dark marsala sauce. My guests had one of the dinner specials, another veal... More

We ate out side for a quick bite. It wasn't quick. Burgers were good. The seasoned shrimp lacked a little seasoning. Would have preferred done if the dinning room choices. Ordered a margarita and it tasted like it was poured from the bottle. I couldn't drink it. Returned it for a beer. Waitress was very pleasant. She was a local.

We ate here twice last week, once with kids, once without. It's your typical bar food… burgers, salads, pizzas (better than almost any we had in OC). We had the seasoned shrimp as a starter. Turnover on tables were pretty quick, so we didn't wait long. The open window atmosphere with the beech in the distance was really nice. One... More

We have eaten here twice recently on the outside deck. The food was good both times and the drinks were delicious. The service is terrible. You seat yourself and then "you wait" !! The waitress threw some menus on the table and we waited to place our order. Employees walked by and asked if we were being helped and we... More
