We eat lunch at this place about once a month. The waterfront location is very nice and makes you feel like you're on the water even in the cold weather. The food, although getting pricy, is always consistently good and the service is attentive and fast.

The Wharfside Restaurant is a gem! It's a cozy authentic seafood restaurant right on the water and makes you feel like you are on vacation! The atmosphere is wonderful as you can look out and see the ocean with boats docked and sailing by. The food portions are good and the dessert portion was amazing! I definitely recommend this restaurant... More

My wife and I enjoyed a belated Valentines Day dinner at the Wharfside. We enjoyed every aspect of the meal from the menu selections to the good preparation. The wait staff was outstanding. We are always puzzled by the mediocre reviews that Jack Baker's Wharfside gets. We like it and we will return in the future.

Great place to have a drink waterside on a nice day! Food you would expect better but it's touristy. Locals frequent before and after prime Summer weeks. Nice Bar wonderful view and just delightful for a few drinks in the sun.

We should have known when we looked out the window at the dock 6 inches deep in Seagull poop and the median age was Depends! The wine was too sweet, the Lobster Bisque was OK and the Scallops (which were recommended by the waitress) were like rubber Superballs. It was a very disappointing lunch out!

We have been going to the Wharfside for many years. Food is always excellent. The staff is great. I greatly enjoy the Apricot Chicken and my wife thinks the Snow Crabs are delicious. Get a window seat because the view of the Manasquan River and Inlet are awesome. During the warmer months you will see all sort of boats coming... More

Absolutely beautiful waterfront view, nice atmosphere, but it ends there. Drinks were watered down, cole slaw mushy, soup rather dull, and the seafood, just like you get at any greasy diner in town. Really, the food is all mediocre and unremarkable, like TV dinners. It just falls so short of what could be a great dining experience.

We have come to the outside bar a few times this past summer and enjoy our food and music. The atmosphere is wonderful and the service is great.

As we have been here before. I must said this is a very good place to eat. They have a place in Toms River NJ. But they have redone that place. Really don't like it but the food was good as before .They are open all year. I like Jack Baker's Wharfside &Patio Bar.

We returned recently to an old favorite on the Jersey Shore only to find that things have changed for the worse! Ordered the Stuffed Shrimp and Bay Scallops which were over cooked accompanied by cole slaw and tartar sauce that looked like they had been left out somewhere unrefrigerated for quite a while. Mashed potatoes had a brownish tinge to... More
