Excellent Burgers

I haven't been to the Ark in years but stopped by on the way home for a bite to eat. There were 4 of us and we all had burgers. They were thick & juicy and cook to perfection. The place hasn't changed at all which is fine by me. A local pub offering a variety of beers and good... read more

The food is great. The fish and chips are fresh. The burgers are excellent. It is the same as it was 25 years ago. Love this place.

I have been to the Ark many times. I go at least one time on my vacation to Point Pleasant. Close to the Whitesands. Great food.

The Ark is my go-to restaurant, and it has been for years. Whenever I have a friend from out of town in the area, this is the place I take them. We periodically stop in for trivia on Thursday nights and I have been for karaoke on Wednesdays, too. It's such a great, relaxed and casual atmosphere, even when it... More

I stumbled onto this place from Yelp I believe when my family and I were staying in Point Pleasant. Amazing draft and bottle selection which is important to me. We waited awhile, it was Friday night the weekend before Labor Day on the shore in New Jersey... It's going to be busy. Kids were treated fairly and there were quite... More

First of all, its crazy that there was a 30 minute wait for a pub. I get that it was a Saturday night, but this place is just a pub and nothing special. The food was ok. I really enjoyed there french fries, but not worth the wait. I ordered a diet coke and the place is too cheap to... More

Our first trip into Ark's and I would go back in a minute. Micha was our server and she was fantastic! Five adults and two young ones and no one walked out disappointed or hungry. I can't say enough about Micha and her service. She was totally awesome!! Thank You!
