Good service, nice views

We ate here a few times. We think the prices are very reasonable. We were very surprised. The views are great. Many tables have a great view of the ocean. The dinners at night were varied and somewhat imagineable. They do compete with the restaurant next door. It is ADA accessible. It does have a... read more

We had made reservations the day before for the Breakers and asked to be seated by the window. We were told they didn't have any seats left in the main dining room but they did have one left on the veranda.The hostess took us into the room and showed us the table to see if it was OK with us...

Just had the most wonderful Mother's Day which included brunch at the Breakers. The atmosphere here is of old time elegance and that never changes. The waitstaff service was outstanding, there was no rush and everyone was very attentive. The owners were also there making sure everyone was happy which was nice to see. The food was excellent, there were... More

We attended a birthday party and had a wonderful evening. It was a buffet and all the food had good flavor. The servers did keep coming to the table to clean everything off. I am sure it is lovely during the summer, as it is on the ocean and you have beautiful views.

This must be really nice in the summer when you can sit outside and enjoy the beautiful ocean view. We had a nice table close to the window but we could see the ocean just the same. We had made recommended reservation's and were seated right away; however, we waited for quite some time before we were waited on. We... More

When not hosting a wedding or other event, there is no place like the Breakers for a drink outside, facing the ocean. Food inside is also good!

One of the best Italian meals we've ever had. The staff was friendly and the food was fabulous. It was like stepping back into the 50's right in the middle of Florence.

The Breakers is located on Ocean Ave. and has views directly over the beach (across the street). Food and service are very good. We were bothered quite a lot by flies sitting outside on the terrace but that may be unavoidable at the time of year. This is an old establishment, one of Spring Lake's venerable restaurants. A good choice.
