Great Food and Very Reasonable Price

We had a delicious meal consisting of 4 courses all for about $16. or $17. during their early dining hour. The service was excellent as well as the quality and quantity of the food. I highly recommend trying this place.

The Breakers has one of the loveliest views on the north end of the shore. Definitely go for the atmosphere. The service was terrific, and the food was ample and tasty.

My wife and I enjoy going to Spring Lake as it is an easier drive from Bucks County, PA for us when we want to enjoy the beach (vs. driving to the southern Jersey beaches). We love the "Pleasantville" aura of the town! This trip we wanted a restaurant overlooking the ocean that was nice, but casual enough that we... More

We have been coming to the Breakers for years when we want a laid back evening, cocktails on the outdoor deck, view of the ocean from the dining room and a very nice menu. There is only one other Spring Lake restaurant that offers the food & view and it's right next door, the Black Swan, but it doesn't have... More

Party of five. Very average food with a nice view. Server kept forgetting to bring us whatever we asked for and knew nothing about bar drinks. Very poorly trained. Four of us has Italian dishes and the Italian red sauce was blah, nothing special ...Ragu is better. Shrimps was very fishy tasting and clams and mussels sub-par. Veal Parm was... More

You might think from the staid atmosphere that the food would be bland and boring. It was not. The food was absolutely delicious, the service attentive/kind and the terrific piano player was the icing on the cake. Great meal!

The Breakers Restaurant is located in the hotel of the same name. Facing the ocean it is a perfect spot for a lovely dining experience. With a menu that is varied but with an emphasis on some fine Italian dishes, the restaurant has selections which should appeal to most people. The dining room looks formal but does not demand formality... More

We had a momentous occasion at the Breaker's. Our second wedding was handled with care, expertise and in an elegant manner. Everything was done to perfection. Eileen Barnetti, our wedding coordinator was nothing less than sensational. From the very beginning, she was organized, professional, knowledgable and gracious. She thought of everything. She was there on our wedding day and made... More
