On a beautiful fall day we found ourselves in Pt. Pleasant Beach , NJ. we had visited this restaurant once before Hurricane Sandy. We sat at their new outside bar overlooking the inlet where all the fishing boats empty their fish. they placed the bar so all can see the water. they have draft beer and a very good hamburger...

Unexpectedly excellent. Kind of a foodie and wasn't expecting much, but boy I was wrong. Everything was perfect and our waitress was a pro! We'll be back!

It's a Jersey Shore Restaurant that is okay. Service was fast, friendly and efficient. Valet Parking very good. The food was mediocre, cafeteria quality nothing more. Started with the steamers and wish I had passed, not good at all. Seafood dish was a step above frozen food. They pack you in, but don't rush you through a meal. Nice people,... More

beautiful day today at Outside the Box. Lunch with friends to end their visit from Paris, France. They loved it. And we didn't care that the service was slow, we just enjoyed the view and the company. The food was very good today. The crab cake sandwich was flavorful. The shrimp in garlic app was excellent, as was the bisque.... More

oysters Rockefeller excellent. Ate under tent at "Out of the Box". scallops overcooked and garlic burned. Waited about an hour to eat. Pleasant service. Poorly made drinks.

Can't say enough good things about this restaurant. Everything here is amazing from the salad bar to the clam chowder to the shrimp scampi to the fried combo. I had the half lobster stuffed with crabmeat over the weekend and it was so good! I wish I lived closer so that I could visit more often! Love this place and... More

Very crowded / very noisy on a Sunday afternoon. Hard to hear your own conversation. Service was just OK - had to remind our waiter that we did not get our bottle of wine. Salad bar is very nice / fresh / good quality. Food took a while to come, but was OK. Swordfish, salmon & soft shell crabs. free... More

I realize that I am in Point Pleasant and can't expect a 5-star dinner (unless you go to Danielle's of course) - but does everything have to be so greasy and fully of oil?! The service is average, not memorable and the ambience is noisy and chaotic. The coconut shrimp were hard and did not taste good, the NE clam... More
