A Good Place, Not a high price beech trap

Hemingway's has and outside area for drinks as well as a full kitchen for the inside eating. They have a few pool tables away from the restaurant side. Good food, good drinks. The price is reasonable. The location is only a block from the beach. The staff is friendly and service is good. Will... read more

Went to celebrate a friends birthday and was pleasantly surprised. I had low expectations based on the location being a "tourist" trap. However, the selection of happy hour food and beverages was great and priced right! The atmosphere was very welcoming. There was a one man band playing classic rock. The crowd was not too young. Nice outdoor area along... More

Absolutely the BEST food in Seaside. The caveat however, is that it is price but you do get what you pay for here. Get the Filet Mignon Sliders....OFF THE HOOK!!

This place is very attractive and clean. The food is amazing. Our waiter Scott from Seattle was so fun, what a nice guy. Had these steamers in a beautiful sauce, we dunked our bread in till it was gone. They are very family friendly, even kids menu is great. Yet it is also great for couples. Where else can you...

The owner is rude & my filet (which took an hour to come out) was cooked rare, I ordered medium well, when I sent it back it came back looking like a hockey puck, owner was asked by our waiter Brian (who was wonderful) to come speak to us & he said No!!!

My fiancé and I choose to have our one nice dinner on a short three day trip at Hemingway's and couldn't have been more pleased. The place is very large and very modern with a great menu. Service was good and the prices for being at the shore we're in line with what you'd expect. All said and done with... More

We decided to go back again this year while vacationing in Seaside Heights. The food was good, but "Why did they change the menu?" We had a table of 9 adults and 2 children. Some had entrees and some had appetizers as their entree. I had the Rack of lamb - $32; this was very good. I had wanted raw... More
