We go for lunch which is sandwiches and a view for under $10

This is an upscale hotel but at lunch they serve interesting sandwiches and nearly everything is under $10. and the view of the ocean is great. Afterwards you can sit on the porch and listen to the ocean. I nice find.

Four of us has Italian dishes and the Italian red sauce was blah, nothing special ...Ragu is better. Shrimps was very fishy tasting and clams and mussels sub-par. Veal Parm was... More

You might think from the staid atmosphere that the food would be bland and boring. It was not. The food was absolutely delicious, the service attentive/kind and the terrific piano player was the icing on the cake. Great meal!

The Breakers Restaurant is located in the hotel of the same name. Facing the ocean it is a perfect spot for a lovely dining experience. With a menu that is varied but with an emphasis on some fine Italian dishes, the restaurant has selections which should appeal to most people. The dining room looks formal but does not demand formality... More

We had a momentous occasion at the Breaker's. Our second wedding was handled with care, expertise and in an elegant manner. Everything was done to perfection. Eileen Barnetti, our wedding coordinator was nothing less than sensational. From the very beginning, she was organized, professional, knowledgable and gracious. She thought of everything. She was there on our wedding day and made... More

The food by the pool was nice. This year when I visited I went to the piano bar, which was great. Didn't have a chance to eat at this restaurant, but sure will when I visit Spring Lake.

We had breakfast and dinner at this restaurant. The breakfast omelets were delicious. The service was good and it was convenient to just go downstairs and eat. For dinner you must sit in the main dining room. They tried to seat is on the side but we requested the main room and it was nice. The food was delicious, we... More
