I've visited Ventura's several times and have never been disappointed. They have a terrific seafood selection and as mentioned above, a great meatball dish - either as an appetizer (two could share) or as a main course. You can't miss the place; it's right next to Lucy the elephant. Parking can be a challenge especially on weekends. They offer valet.... More

My family went to visit my daughter who lives in Margate and we decided to try this place for lunch. The upper deck is great! Nice view of Lucy the elephant, great breeze on a hot day and good food. We will go again for sure. Almost forgot, parking is terrible!

The most exciting thing was the line to ladies bathroom. Crab cakes were disgusting.. I would never eat at this Place again.. White pizza was as hard as a piece of slate. When I complained they said their the best crab cakes ,, I must of been served ones from last year... It was disgusting no one was in the... More

In season and out this is one of the best jersey shore restaurants. The pasta with the crab is my favorite and my husband lives the veal. We like to go with friends very comfy for a group if 6. Oh yes and the bread with the hot pepper and roasted garlic. Yum

Nice place with nice food. You can choose the indoor area and fine dine or downstairs or the outdoor deck to fast food it with pizza and pasta dishes(younger crowd/w/kids). Bar scene in/out/down to meet up with friends. Can eat at bar. Reserves a must but sometimes they can fit you in. Check it out

Fabulous lunch. Amazing service from Julie the waitress and Andrew the bartender made our day. Food was amazing but service so impeccable that they could have served empty plates and I would have left happy. Miles better than Boca!!!! You need to try this place. I eat out 21 times a week and.this place is the place is the best... More

We have friends with a condo on the beach right near here so figured we'd give it a try. This was a fun spot and they make really good bloody mary's if you are into day drinking. A little typical of Jersey douchery as it gets later and crowded, but if you know to expect that then you are fine.... More

Even though they do not accept reservations for small parties, it is worth the wait. The veal is A+. Parking can be problematic during the Summer.

We come several times throughout the year. The Tiki Bar is always fun with delicious food and beach themed drinks. The Rooftop Bar is a newly renovated deck with an amazing ocean view. The food and service is wonderful. During the summer nights they have a DJ, and now they are offering football food and drink specials and a free... More

Next door to Lucy the elephant house is a wonderful place to eat, drink and enjoy the ocean. During the day, a great view. At night, great food and the sound of waves breaking on the beach. And, the food....fantastic! The mussels were fantastic. The meat balls (about the size of a good grade orange) were tasty, spicy, and perfect... More
