Great seafood and priced right

We had a fantastic meal at this restaurant and generous portions of everything. The only problem was we asked the server to box the portion that we were too full to eat and when we got home we noticed that he threw away 2/3 of our leftovers. A whole crab cake and a stuffed shrimp from wife's meal... read more

We arrived around 7:30 and were told it would be about a 40 minute wait for first available (bar, inside or outside) and it was about 45 minutes until we were seated. We then waited about 5-10 minutes before our server came to our table. In fact, the server went to the table next to ours which was just seated... More

Had dinner here one night while visiting the beaches of jersey. We decided on it because it was featured on DDD. I did not get what was on the menu from guys visit instead got a strip steak and shrimp. The shrimp were good but the steak seamed to be under seasoned and just bland. The place seemed nice and...

Barb is the best bartender. Great food! Try the nachos even though they aren't on the menu! You won't regret it. Nice, clean and attentive/personable staff. Must go if in the area.

Portions were large and very good. Hostess was not friendly nor was the wait staff. A disappointment. I felt hurried along - busboy wanted to take our plates when food was still on them and we were still eating. Would not return due to poor service.

Very good seafood. Plenty of menu options. Large bar area. Good value. Often crowded-expect to wait. Dine on the porch if possible.

Your typical pub/restaurant at the shore. Restaurant is clean, but a little cramped and suffers from too much decor. The starter salad was thrown together on the plate and or rolls were hard. The Grouper Cardinal special was the highlight of the night. Great flavor, crab cake had a lot of meat filling. Pasta served on the side was cold... More

The place had potential but I left dissatisfied. It smelled good from the parking lot, it was busy inside [not a big deal we went during a Sunday dinner service of a gorgeous evening] so we sat at the bar. It was different. I witnessed bartenders singing to local patrons the we're obviously aquaint with. The service was interesting, we... More

This has become our favorite restaurant when we're "down the shore" as we say in NJ. There are three different seating areas that each have their own unique feel. The dining room area is a little fancier and we often see people dressed up having a special meal out. The bar room is rustic and non-fussy and is our favorite... More

My husband, daughter and her family enjoyed our dinner at Achorage Tavern Restaurant. The adults sat at the bar waiting for our table - the bar area was a very friendly atmosphere. I talked with one gentleman that frequents the restaurant and it was like talking with a family member. He was very helpful and giving us advise on what... More
