We sat outside because it was a beautiful day. The view was nice and we got to hear the band play at the patio bar area. The wait staff was excellent. Very attentive and polite. The food was good. The portions size was a lot.

Oysters not served on ice. Cold plate went warm fast. Bread served was terrible. Entree's were just okay. I expected from a seafood house much better.

We all ordered the lobster bisque -- the best around, in my opinion -- for take-out. It lived up to our expectations. There were mixed reviews on the hush puppies/corn fritters. I love them, but not everyone does. The deep frying is a turn off for the healthier members of the family.

We like to eat on the outside deck of the restaurant. Love the Chopped salad. Food always good and fresh. Great sunset view and view of Treaaure Island. You can dock your boat also. Love watching all the water activities. Then yoi can go next door to The Patio Bar and catch some live entertainment. But for the most part... More

Had lunch there yesterday and although the view and ambiance of patio was lovely the rest of the experience was a bit disappointing. Our server was at best disinterested and less than welcoming. Although my husband's crab cake sandwich came with lettuce and tomato garnishes, my mahi mahi sandwich was under seasoned and came with no garnishes making the plate... More

Excellent choice for decades for the Jersey Shore. Generous with portions and courses starting with the cole slaw and wonderful bread basket immediately brought to the table. Table side salad is fresh and seafood is always good.

The view of the Manasquan River is very nice. The help is friendly and efficient. The happy hour is what you make it. That is it. The food tastes like frozen reheated fare. The scallops are chewy, the salmon covered up with sauce because it was dry. The place is so big it gets the feel of a high school... More

We returned from wintering in Florida and discovered that Jack Baker's Wharfside had initiated a Happy Hour. Reduced drink prices and a $5 menu that is very attractive. From fried flounder sandwiches to PEI mussels to a burger, among others- all very good. They also offer two soups. Man Clam Chowder ( very thick) $1.50 and Lobster Bisque $3 again,... More

My girlfriend and I go here at least once a month and we always consider it a date night. We love the atmosphere, menu, staff and it's just great. We really cannot find anything to complain about, the lobster bisque is AMAZING. My girlfriend loves the salad cart, I'm not a big salad eater but she always has nice things... More
