Very good dinner, excellent view

You can't beat this location in Spring Lake - right across from the beach. The dining room has nice windows for a beach view. We dined in the off-season, but the service was still pretty good. There is a small bar area next to the dining room, the highlight of which is the friendly, kind bartender... read more

My husband and I went down to Spring Lake for a weekend to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed at the Breakers and we were very happy with the entire experience. The tub in the bathroom was too high [to shower] and after calling the front desk, they immediately put us in an upgraded room with a separate shower, as well... More

I stay at The Breakers Hotel on vacation each year. Both the hotel, restaurant and bar staff are terrific. Over the years I have seen the caliber of their menu greatly improve. Try to get a window table in the main dining are. Hint - if you can't then see if the front window table in the Veranda dining area... More

Catching up with friends from Scotland. Took a little while to be seated and were initially seated next to another group but our waiter suggested moving us a few tables away which was good. Service was great as was the food so would definitely recommend this restaurant!

Having never been to Spring Lake before, we picked this restaurant for dinner. We experienced the 'early bird" dinner & were so pleased with the service, decor, but modt important was the quality of the food served by wonderful servers with smiles. Nice welcome to Spring Lake! 5 stars!!

Well our son is planning his wedding her so Mom and Dad had to check it out. We decided to take a ride and have lunch there. I had the crab cake sandwich which was so good. There were so many breakfast choices that it was hard to choose. The service was nice and the food was good. We will... More

My wife and I met with her cousin and her cousin's husband. Since this is an old style building it appears a bit stuffy. But it is really not. They have an excellent lunch menu. However, aside form the soup of the day, lunch was disappointing. My burger was not very good and it was over cooked. I ordered it... More

Excellent experience! First class service Really fine wait staff. Food was delicious! Right across from the ocean! We had "early bird" and found there were more than enough entrees to choose from. Nice to have two servers, crisp linen and formal but Relaxed atmosphere
