My wife and I dined here on a sat night. The fried scallops were fresh and tasty. The sauteed crab cakes were tasty but made with the lower grade crab and kind of dark looking. We wondered if the veggies of the day were of the frozen variety . The roasted mini potatoes were good although only got 4 or... More

Who would guess that a seafood restaurant on the Jersey Shore would serve a European Sea bass and not a local atlantic ocean fish. As I had only heard about Br onzini it was my choice and my uncles choice for dinner. My uncle originally wanted the Chilean sea bass but the restaurant only had one serving left that night... More

My husband and I went here back in May for breakfast. It was our table and two other tables being waited on. It took forever to get our food, then we had to beg for our second cup of coffee. While my husband was drinking out of his mug I noticed a huge lipstick stain on his cup. Gross! Today,... More

Have been here before and expected better than what we experienced. The seafood mini combo was tasteless. The flounder was tiny and tasteless. The shrimp was chewy and tasteless and the scallops were mushy and tasteless. Service was below average and our table was wobbly. Even the vegetables were overcooked and rubbery. Very disappointed. Will have to think twice about... More

This use to be our favorite place, flies were problem during our meal as well. They have excellent soup! There portions are huge. Good thing we called to check our reservations, because they lost it. It was for a big party too. That was upsetting.

We try to go here at least once a Summer when we are down. You should always try to make a reservation as it gets crowded. They used to have a big chalk board of specials, but in the last two years they did away with that. My kids love that their meals come with a Frisbee to take home.... More

I had the buffalo steak. Very gristly. Vegetables over done. Chowder too thick. Husband had fried seafood platter that had generous portions but was overlooked. Probably won't go back based on this meal and price of food. Server was very pleasant and offered to take steak back, but had waited so long for meal I didn't want to wait any... More

Had a pretty lousy meal last year, but have been going every year for a long time...we went back. My wife's blackened salmon was obviously frozen, lettuce was brown on the edges...she refused to send it back and just let it sit there. My brisket was fatty and the BBQ. Sauce was strange. My daughters chicken fingers were good. Service... More

There is both inside and outside seating and on a picture perfect night we had a seven PM table waiting for us.We were seated and it was a few minutes before any wait staff... More
