Let's start with 6pm reservations and not being seated until 6:30. (There were plenty of empty tables). We were seated another 10 minutes before we saw our waitress, another 10 minutes to get our drinks. 15 minutes later our appetizers and soup delivered at same time. Don't order the beer pretzels to me they taste and look like the grocery... More

My wife and I were on a date nite with a sitter watching the kids. We stopped for a drink as we were dinning @ Prime 13 (see that review). We made our way around the bar and attempted to get the attention of one of 4 bartenders. I knew there was trouble when the guy ahead of me wished... More

We went to 709 when it opened a few years ago - food, drinks and atmosphere was great. We live "down the shore" and decided to go back recently for Happy Hour since the online reviews were good but sadly, things have changed. They do have skilled bartenders and they were attentive and very pleasant but the quality of the... More

We ate our New Year's Eve dinner there last night. We expected it to be packed but it wasn't!! As always, the food was delicious, although we did wait a long time for our drinks. Perhaps it was because the bar was busy. Nothing beats their soft pretzels and dipping mustards!! Tried sushi for the first time. It was the... More

Great drinks and a very attentive and skilled bartending staff. We ate at the bar and it was great. If you like sushi, this is the place. Some great craft beers on tap if that is your thing. The food was excellent. They even have some great happy hour specials.

We just had our Rehearsal Dinner here last weekend. Our thanks to 709 (especially Regina). Everything was perfect from the food, the surroundings, the yummy food, and the very attentive staff. If you are planning any event, we would highly recommend this restaurant!

709 was perfect. My husband & I came to the NJ shore for a long weekend to celebrate our 23rd anniversary. Not wanting the standard fare: meat, potatoes, or full seafood dinners, or God help us Italian food, 709 was recommended. Excellent! Funky, modern vibe, eclectic menu, attentive knowledgeable service(Scott was our server), it was just what we were looking... More

Great bar scene if that's your thing, with good food including a sushi bar, but if you go on a weekend in the summer, prepare to wait, and then be prepared to not hear your dining companion's conversation. The noise level is atrocious, and even worse when then band starts. I'll go back, but not in the summer!
