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

We ate on the open air deck which was very nice and the only reason it got 2 stars instead of 1. The menu is very limited and overpriced. Service was terrible. They give you plastic utensils and paper plates. The only thing this place is good for is getting drunk on tropical drinks. Don't eat here.

This restaurant is close to the beach and has a busy bar scene. Very casual. Food is good but not outstanding. Prices are moderate and service can be good or bad. Good for little kids and families but stay away from the bar area where smokers congregate on the side open to outside.

Today is July 31 , 2014. I've been to this restaurant a few times with friends and family and always enjoyed the food and service. Two weeks ago I called on a Monday to make reservations for the following Saturday night @ 7:30 for 9 people. I was told that ERICA makes all reservations and will call me when she... More

Girlfriend and I stopped in for some Bloody Mary's and Pizza! The Greenhouse is known for it's Pizza and fine dining. Bartender "Nicole" makes the best Bloody Mary's! Only second to Mr. Smith at Charlies Bar in Somers Point. The deck is a great spot for some cocktails and a quick bite before hitting the beach. The mussels were also... More

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
