If you can grab a seat on the porch overlooking the ocean, it's a nice place to go for a cocktail (many are $10.00 ea) and appetizer (not cheap - cheese and crackers was $14.00). But it's one of the few places in the area that overlooks the ocean so I guess you pay for the view. They often have... More

I basically will repeat what I said in my hotel review: great food and great service. I thoroughly enjoyed the lobster tails, and my wife had brussel sprout ravioli. We loved what we had, and as I said, the service was highly organized and attentive.

Please see our review of the hotel. The restaurant is fabulous and foodies will love it! From the well appointed dining room, the highly professional wait staff, to the well thought-out wine list this restaurant leaves little to be desired. Fine food has returned to the New Jersey shore!

We eat here when we visit Spring Lake and are in the mood for Italian. The menu is varied, you should be able to find something you like, there's a nice ocean view from the enclosed veranda, and it's an easy walk down the boardwalk back to the Hewett Wellington Hotel where we usually stay. One of the nicer places... More

The two old ladies on the road again. For this visit we only had appetizers one evening and breakfast. The selection of appetizers was varied and appealing. The food quality was average. However in ordering a bottle of wine, the server Pretended to be knowledgable in response to our questions. BUT literally did not know the difference between white and... More

We had a good dinner here while spending a night at the hotel. Very large menu with different Italian style preparations of pasta, seafood, chicken, veal and beef. The bread basket was filled with a variety of fresh and tasty breads served with olive oil with herbs. The meals were cooked well, but nothing extra special. Family style mashed potatoes... More

Loved it! Had the Veal Piccata, it was delicious. Also tasted the chicken and shrimp Franciase. The service was awesome too and it wasn't crazy expensive.

Enjoyed drinks on the porch. Moved inside for a good dinner served by friendly staff. Followed by desert and after dinner drinks accompanied by great music by Gladstone in the bar. All in all a great night out. A frequent stop for us. Breakfast is also worth a visit.

This was our second visit to the Breakers; I noted the first time that not only were the accommodations first class, and the restaurant a five star experience, all of the help seem to anticipate your needs. Well, that has not changed, our room with a fabulous ocean view was spotlessly prepared, and the Chef's special on Monday night was... More
