My husband and I ate here on a Sunday evening. We arrived around 730p there was a 30 min wait to be seated outside or we could be seated right away in the dining room. We decided to be seated right away and they sat us right by the window, which gave us a beautiful view of the sun setting.... More

Had a birthday celebration here--our family who has lived on the Jersey shore for many years, clearly liked this restaurant. We sat outside--the weather was perfect, great sea breeze, seagulls putting on a bit of a show. We were looking forward to a good seafood dinner. Unfortunately we were very disappointed. We found the food to be ordinary. My husband... More

I loved enjoying some cocktails outside while enjoying the view of the water, and listening to the amazing live bands.

Food was badly cooked. Steak for my wife was well done when she ordered medium rare. Waitress never came back to check on us and I had to go tell the manager. They offered to cook a new one but siad it would be over 20 minutes. By this point we were all in a rish so I asked to... More

The outside patio bar is a great location with a lively atmosphere. The food is ok, as long as you are in the mood for pub food. However, the last 2 time I was there prior to last night, I was given a skunked beer. The odor and the taste are sickening and it usually occurs through neglect by the... More

Bartenders are terrible inside the restaurant. Dirty shirts, bad attitudes, complaining about making drinks for customers. I left after waiting for 30 minutes to get something to eat. I had the menu and the female bartender took it away without asking me if I wanted anything, Was hear 10+ plus years ago and was excited to get some seafood. Went... More

A nice place to eat on the water but they don't take reservations. Can be very crowded. Said full party has to be there to be seated -even if they are just parking. Although we watched at least two groups come in who obviously were not there to be seated when original party was. Food was good and portions ample.

This restaurant is top notch and sits on top of the channel in Point Pleasant. Beautiful sunset views. The lobster bisque is the best I have ever had. Seafood is good and fresh although not in the cheap category. Ask to be seated in the outdoor area (covered) for the best experience.

Stop by for lunch today was not our first time but will be our last. The lunch menu is overpriced not to mention that the food we ordered was horrible. The tableside salad was old and wilty, bread shrimp was dry, rubbery and had absoutely NO TASTE. I believe they were frozen right out of the box to fryer. Probably... More

With so many intimate BYOs in the area, we hadn't been to the Wharfside in several years. Last week, we joined our daughter, granddaughter and friends for a 12th birthday celebration and had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. The early dining prix fixe three course dinner is a very good value, and I was pleasantly surprised to find Sonoma-Cutrer chardonnay at... More
