We sat on the balcony had an amazing ocean/beach view the bar and eatery was very clean and cute looking I forgot I was in seaside for a moment. We were seated immediately after walking up the stairs and everyone was so friendly. Our waitress was amazing and so friendly we ended up talking to her about everything and anything.... More

We had a great meal while vacationing in Seaside Heights. Beware of the cherizo stuffed jalapeño! Yummy but VERY spicy!!

Food was ok, nothing fantastic. Service was so slow. Everything we asked our waitress for took at least 20 minutes, no joke. She passed us at least 5 times. And never asked how anything was or if we needed anything. Waitresses obviously can't multitask. Pizza slices are huge though which is cool, I guess.

We wanted supper with a view, but thunderstorms threatened. Spicy's 2nd floor by the balcony was a great choice. Great view, very good Mexican food, and we stayed dry when the rain started. Service was fast, friendly and attentive. Prices were reasonable. Keep in mind that we visited the week before summer season officially starts and it was a little... More

My son had chicken fajitas and it looked great,he said it was good. The server was not attentive and it took awhile for us to put in the order. When it cam... More

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
