Great for drinks!

The view was great! We had a nice lunch, only ordered pizza and burgers, figured that was safe since we thought it was the same owners!

The bar outside on the inlet is really nice. The place was packed wall to wall with people and there were enough bartenders that you barely waited for a drink. The band they had was awesome to. Really fun place.

We have been coming to wharfside for years. You cant beat the location, sitting on the outside deck is beautiful. The complimentary corn fritters are amazing. The rest of the food? not so good anymore. The fish I ordered was so stinky and tasted like iodine I had to send it back. My husbands fish from his fish and chips... More

Typical seashore resort restaurant. They think that there are tourists dinning all year long . Food is adequate but not outstanding. Service is good. Portions are on the lean side in comparison to tohers of the same price point.

We've been going to this place for over 25 years and find it consistently good, though even better in the off-season. We made a last-minute move to go there last night (a summertime Thursday). The Patio Bar had no tables available and lots of people hovering to grab ones that looked like they were about to empty. I really dislike... More

This is a great place right on the harbor, away from the hustle and bustle of the boardwalk. Nice cocktail and casual food menu. I loved the Devotion Tiki Tea and Fish Tacos. There is usually live music and a mixed crowd of people. Servers are very friendly and accommodating!

This place had the best HushPuppies and Cloe slaw, and they brought it out "on the house" I could not stop eating them. I had the crab stuffed mushrooms and they were delicious. Two of my friends had the king crab legs and said they were fantastic. There was a live band playing next door, and we danced and sang... More

The Wharfside has amazing views of the river and all the awesome boats. The live music is great too. It fits perfectly with the surroundings. Service was okay. It's a weird set-up. Servers are only responsible for drinks. You go up to a counter to order your food. Also, you have to pay for your food when you order. You... More

But, this is a BAR. Food is normal bar food served by pleasant servers, but not fine dining . You are here for the bands and the view with a glass of wine or a beer, BUT, it is real close to fine dining at Daniel's on Broadway AND the restaurant next door, has nice sea food as well, But... More

On a pleasant afternoon, there are few better places to be than the Wharfside. An excellent drink menu, including a good selection of beers, a gorgeous view of the Manasquan river, good music and extremely fresh seafood are the hallmark of this place. In season, the oysters are delivered from the boat about 20 to the restaurant. Great stuff.
