I had dinner at Cousins last June and it was fair. A group of friends wanted to dine at Cousins and we were invited. 9 of us had 7:30 reservations. The table was ready and service was excellent. We all had rooms at Harrah's and did some pre game cocktails at the Golden Nugget Deck Bar. Ocean City is a... More

Just went to Cousin's last night for the first time in many years. We have been coming to OCNJ for well over 20 years and decided to go to Cousin's again. It was terrible! It all began when the four of us were seated at a table that was about 3' x 2'. We should have realized that was maybe... More

We went to Cousin's on a random mid-week day, prior to the real tourist season starting. The place was empty, except for us and one other couple. More staff present than customer's so the service was excellent. Our server (Rachel) was great and very informative about the specials, etc. Special orders are easy as everything was made to order. All... More

I've been traveling to Ocean City for 30 plus years and never knew about this great little Italian restaurant. My family went there on a Friday evening with no reservations on the first weekend in August. And we had no problem around 6PM getting a table. The fresh breads and salad were just wonderful. Had a few apps before dinner... More

My wife and I dined here on Labor Day weekend and found the meals, once again, very enjoyable. They have since repainted and re-arranged the seating (less high backed wood booths and more comfortable wood chairs replacing the one piece vinyl chairs of old). We both dined on the grilled salmon, mixed vegetables and garlic mashed potatoes and found everything... More

Now, how many places try to sell you that line? Thousands, from what this family of four has observed. And, I now know of ONE that actually lives up to the challenge. This place is "fan-tab-u-lous". I practically walked past the place, because it is, quite literally, on of your cousin's beach homes converted to a full scale kitchen and... More

We made reservations, but did not need them on a Friday night. My mate selected crab cakes which he liked and I had the macaroni and loose crab meat. It was served hot which was great and we hardly left any left overs. For dessert my friend had the key lime pie which he said was "good" but I had... More

We had a takeout order. Kitchen was very busy. It was a very disorganized place. I am shocked at the good reviews. I had linguine with clams in red sauce. It was awful. The sauce was overwhelmed with what I think was oregano. The linguine was very overcooked. My friend had linguine with meatballs. They didn't even taste like regular... More

This is a delightful restaurant in town, on Asbury St. in Ocean City, NJ. It's located on First and Asbury, and parking in the street is pretty easy there. The restaurant itself was converted from a house, and the inside portion (you can eat outside in nice weather) must have been a basement at one time, because the ceiling is... More
