Fresh Tasty Food

You walk in most of the tables are filled with customers eating great fresh food. Made to order for you plus great Smoothies. They take your order and give you a number for your table so when your order is ready they can bring your food to you. It is a great place to stop and eat.

I LOVE Surf Taco. I was just in Seaside Heights a few months ago and was so excited to find this at Point Pleasant. Not the same. We ordered online and picked it up for take out. Food was ready on time. My Taco salad did not taste good at all. It tasted like it was spoiled. I did not... More

The catering was enjoyed by all at the party. The salad with pineapple and chicken was unusual and a big hit with the salad lovers.

Good tacos. I think they should give you two instead of one. The fish taco I had was very good and all the food seemed fresh.

The ambiance is not great but we love Surf Taco. The Manasquan branch is nicer and has more room than the one in Point Pleasant Beach. Our favorite is the coconut shrimp taco with mangoes and guacamole. This restaurant is self service. You order and then pick the food up when your number is called.

There are 7 of us, we all loved our food. And with their famous surf tacos, you can't go wrong! ! It was crowded, and another customer moved tables for us so we could all sit together. The counter staff was very friendly, and the four different sauces were all very good! Drink again had so many options, it was... More
