Great view, good food

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... read more

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.

had breakfast with my 8 yr old granddaughter, she had pancakes, chocolate milk and I had a delicious cheese omelet, with homefries, toast & coffee. Once again the staff at Breakers are so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, they go out of their way to do whatever is needed to help. Top Notch Customer Service*******

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

This place is outstanding for weddings. The view of the ocean, mobile bar on the balcony, great facilities for parties. Dinner to wedding cakes are well prepared and high quality. Piano Bar is fantastic for a romantic get away with views of the ocean. For dinner the food is very good to excellent. Service is always top notch. I liked... 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
