Excellent Italian food

I've heard for years that you can't beat Mildred's in Strathmere for Italian food down the shore. Well that is incorrect, as Cousins is much better in my opinion. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars from me is that the atmosphere is a bit lacking. You're basically eating in what was a garage... read more

Wife and I headed to Somets Ppint for our anniversary dinner. A wait of an hour and forty-five minutes was ridiculous. So we headed back to OCNJ and cruised the streets, looking for an place to eat. We happened on Cousins. I pulled up to the curb, googled Cousins, and said to the wife, "Let's give it a try." What... More

Do not show up at 4:30 without a reservation??? Huffy, old lady that seated us seemed really put out about it. So she puts 4 of us in this little itty bitty table for 2. waitstaff prompt as just opening. Family style salad brought to table drowning in dressing. Was delicious ,but would like the option of keeping it light.... More

A long time OC goer took me there 4 years ago. When 18 family members all asked me where to go for dinner, I called for reservations right away. The food is terrific, large portions and everyone loved their meal. It is not a formal place and parking is limited but well worth it.

Cousins is a small beach town restaurant with plenty of beach town charm. You can eat on the porch or in the dining area. On the menu is a very nice assortment of really delicious meals. A little more expensive than some in town but truly worth it.This summer, give Cousins a try. I'll bet you won't be disappointed. I... More

My wife had the Pasta With Clams on the twilight menu. It was one of the best tasting pasta dishes ever. I had the Veal Parmigiana off the Twilight menu and it delicious. The prices on the twilight menu make it an AWESOME DEAL!!

Back to Cousins...still good but... Our meal was good but the portion sizes didn't make sense. My wife had the chicken parm and the plate was enough for three. Price was fair to say the least. I had the stuffed shells...three very large shells and very good but that was all. No other pasta, no sides...just the three shells in... More
