Nice night at the shore

Beautiful location right on the inlet, nice outdoor dining atmosphere, gets a nice breeze so it wasn't too hot. Good service, unique touches like delicious " zeppole" like fried dough that they put on your table with the bread, and a coleslaw that was unexpected but good. Choice of soup or salad... read more

I met 3 friends for lunch here mid-week. We sat outside and the view was nice. The service was adequate. The food was disgusting. The corn fritters had no flavor. The lobster bisque was okay: too much flour and barely warm. The crab cakes were bland and underwhelming. The sautéed vegetables were so over cooked they were garlic saturated mush.... More

The deck is delightful for warm days. It is the same menu as inside. The lunch and early bird complete dinners are very good value. Everyone in our group was very pleased with the meal. Their salad selection , table side, is very good.

This was a very nice . We really enjoyed the Crab Cakes. It would be awesome if you added Lobster Rolls to the menu for our next trip to the Jersey Shore. Friendly, efficient service, reasonably priced. Will definitely stop back when in town. Thank you!

We ate dinner here on our resent visit to the shore. When we arrived we knew it was probably not the place for us. The place was huge and crowded. I will say that when we finally did get a seat we did have a beautiful, but that is the best compliment I can give it. My son, nine years... More

My family and I came here on Saturday Aug 23 to celebrate my mother's birthday. We have been coming to the Wharfside for at least 20 years, I myself even waitressed here during my college years. The service, food, and overall cleanliness of the place is suffering. At the end of our meal, we left two signed receipts on the... More

Met a friend for lunch overlooking the water at an outside booth. Although it was a very warm summer day, the breeze made it comfortable at the outside table. The setting is beautiful. The wait staff was very attentive without rushing us through the lunch. The menu included typical lunch choices with an emphasis on seafood. We both had the... More

We enjoyed visiting both, and especially enjoyed the live music on the patio! The staff was nice, and the food was good, not great, but good...it's a good place to go to spend an evening out!

We had a 1 1/2 hr wait for an outside table at the Wharfside, but if was worth the wait. We all enjoyed the food and atmosphere. We watched the sunset at the Patio Bar while we waited. There is a need for more parking though.

Visited with family of 7. Took quite some time for a table and food was passable but we've certainly eaten better in Point. The wait staff was great but for the $ there are many other places that serve better food.
