Great food and service

Went here on a Friday night in February. I had the Grilled Tuna steak and it was THE BEST i ever had. Service was great but it wasn't that crowded in the middle of February After dinner we shot a game of pool. Looking forward to going back.

On a rainy evening, we came to Hemingway's after hearing positive reviews from locals. Upon entering, the waitress sat us down in a far corner of the restaurant, away from most people. We were not dressed inappropriately for the restaurant, and felt a bit offput by this. The waitress then never came back. Ever. After waiting 15 minutes for our... More

Ordered 2 apps and later 2 entrees, each time their was a very large gap between... More

Great menu, the sushi was delish! However, my main entree contained what seemed like part of plastic bag that I hoped was from the Parmesan cheese in my dish. They did comp my meal which I didn't ask them to do so that was very professional and appreciated. I would definitely go back here.

This place is a restaurant that turns into a bar/club in the evening. The food was good, but not nearly as good as the prices they charged for it. The drinks were good.

The atmosphere inside is pleasant although Seaside Heights is becoming a run down, not-so-great vacation spot. Food was tasty, we all enjoyed our meals. Had homemade gnocchi, very good. Sister had sliders, also good. Mom had the ribs, again they were good.

We had a long wait for a table - 45 minutes. The food was good with plenty of choice but a bit pricey.
