I was recently here on 8/16/14 with my husband and I really enjoyed the food. No wait at 8pm on a Saturday and great ambience . I had the best roasted chicken I've had in a long time and it was perfectly marinated and seasoned. Yummy! However , they knew it was my birthday and didn't offer any kind gesture.... More

Spur of the moment decision to try this place on a Sunday evening after having passed it numerous times since it's been opened for a few years. (We mainly avoided it since we were impolitely told to get off the parking lot one morning, shortly after the placed opened for business, while trying to find a parking spot for Bayfest.)... More

We are on vacation so we were here on a Friday night rather than a Saturday night. That seemed to make all the difference! We only had to wait about 15 minutes to get a table, the service was excellent and the food was good. We were there with family and friends and everyone enjoyed the meal. We ordered the... More

Being locals we decided to try a new place for dinner. My husband ordered the Mozzarella Sticks for an appetizer. They were your typical frozen sticks and had a fishy taste like they were fried in the same oil used to fry fish. I ordered the Calamari appetizer. Not only were they very small but the portion was small as... More

My wife and I took our kids there for dinner and to watch World Cup game. The service was awful and they appeared under-staffed. The nachos came with just sour cream and a few black beans with jalapeño peppers. We asked for salsa twice and it finally came after 20 minutes. The hamburger was dry and whatever you do stay...

Read the reviews and tried it anyway. Should not have. Rolls were warm but stale....should have been our first clue. Service was slow.....took 15 minutes for a requested water refill. Food marginal. Will not return

This place is always busy and always fun! Tons of tvs, a big menu and great service. My favorite part is sitting at the bar!

First visit was very good. Seated in restaurant side. Quiet and nice atmosphere. The waitress was excellent. Food was very good. Cuban Panini was best I have had. My wife had the tuna salad that she loved. Second visit on a Friday night. Seated in bar area. Noisy, busy, lot of commotion. Typical bar atmosphere. Service was just OK. Expected... More

Cassie is a superhero. Many bars in Somers Point but she makes it the place to be. Food is fair, but her smile lights up the plate.
