Black Truppet Restaurant - Spring Lake , New Jersey

The service was fantastic! Although, they had a small varied menu, the food was good. I would definitely go back if I am in Spring Lake again.

We dined on their porch and enjoyed a wonderful evening and a very pleasant dining experience. The Waiter did an excellent job from start to finish. The food was very good and easy to recommend to others. We selected their special of the evening and really liked it even though we found it priced higher than we had guessed.

My friends and I went here for our combined birthday celebration, and while it was formal/preppy and expensive, it was very worth it. Each seafood platter was beyond delicious! We are planning on going there again.

Our waiter read us specials.... We had to ask for the price..... I had the lobster special and my husband had the filet mignon. We each had one drink. One appetizer. No dessert. The entrees were OK, nothing special. The bill was over $200 with tip..... We were seated next to a couple who were loud and vulgar and our... More

There are not many good places to eat in Spring Lake, in fact, there is nothing very good that we've been able to find. We found ourselves at the Black Trumpet based on time and lack of any other option while staying at The Breakers. The service was poor. The food started out very good with a delicious appetizer, but... More

Not your average beach type eatery. The chef/owner actually serves entrees to patrons. Service is superb. Not a gigantic menu but superior choices. Breakfast, lunch and dinner served and we enjoyed every meal. Breakfast $ 12.95 for 3 or 4 courses. Lunch $ 14.95 with 3 or 4 courses and wine specials for $ 6. Dinner a little expensive with...

The Black Trumpet is located in the historic Grand Victorian hotel, built in 1883. Across the street from the beach, the restaurant has ocean views from it's outside dining area and it's enclosed sun room. We chose the sun room for our dinner. We arrived a bit early for a 6:00 reservation but were seated immediately. Our server, Mary, arrived... More

We ate breakfast one day and lunch the next day here. Breakfast was good and lunch was too. I would not say very good but definitely good but there's no good rating so I selected average. The only issues: the lobster salad had way too much mayo and was very salty and the fruit cup for $5 was way small,... More
