My boyfriend and I spent a few days over the weekend in Seaside Heights as a get away and stopped by Spicy's everyday. We always sat at the bar and had drinks and appestizers. Service was good and bartenders were very friendly and welcoming of us coming from Mississippi. They had live music one afternoon which was very entertaining. Better... More

Went to Spicy's on the boardwalk to have appetizers and a drink . Went upstairs and asked for a table. We were told that if we were not having a complete entree we had to sit at the bar. Needless to say we left. Not very hospitable to tell people they need to sit at the bar. We probably would... More

I have been here a few times. The place has a nice upstairs bar, and tables that overlook the boardwalk/beach/ocean. Great place to view fireworks, btw. The food portions are huge, so i you can split a meal, so much the better, as buying two dinners and throwing 1/2 of each away is costly--I do wish they has smaller portions... More

I was in seaside heights on a three day mini getaway. I was walking along the broadwalk and was a little hungry. I stumbled on to this restaurant. I saw the sign for five dollar margaritas upstairs so I decided to check it out. This restaurant is huge, the upstairs has a large bar and a terrace area with tables.... More

The Voodoo Rum Bucket is the way to go. The food was DELICIOUS and the dancing was fun too on a Saturday night (if you don't want to go to Karma or Bamboo).

Good tex mex and specials. Grilles tuna and salsa special was excellent. Service was good and the cover band downstairs was amazing. Only complaint was that after being reasurred the veggies were not cooked in oil or butter. They came back greasey cooked in oil.
