One of the only oceanfront restaurants in Monmouth County, The Breakers is a charming seashore restaurant. Reasonably priced food, attentive service, and an unbeatable location.

We dine with some regularity at The Breakers but Restaurant Week provides an added incentive to go to this Jersey Shore longtime favorite. This week, their special menu featured delicious and healthy entrees : Salmon, Pork Tenderloin, and Chicken. Many of these will find their way onto the Breakers extensive regular menu which is also available during Restaurant Week. I... More

We had a very good meal at the Breakers. I had the Chicken Piccata and my wife had Crab Cakes. The entree was preceded by a generous salad. We both got the house dressing, an in-house made Italian. My wife asked for hers on the side, which was good for me as mine needed more. The ambiance was very nice.... More

We have dined at this restaurant each time we have visited Spring Lake. The menu is great, food is consistently good. We always order seafood, and are never disappointed. We also had breakfast there during our stay, and that was very good, also. I would highly recommend the Breakers.

Stopped for a quick lunch on our way home from NYC. Lovely setting across from the ocean. Food was fresh and perfectly prepared at a reasonable cost. It was particularly nice to be served a salad with homemade dressing - something you can rarely find these days. As noted in another review the decor is a bit dated, but charming... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel this past weekend and dined here the first evening. The food was excellent, with my wife raving about her flounder francaise while I ordered the veal francaise, a very good dish but not excellent to my standards. I tend to prefer a slightly more flavorful francaise, but the veal itself was cut... More

food was okay, but the decor felt like I was in a nursing home. The best part was being so close to the beach and having a wonderful view of the ocean!
