The Braised Guinness Short Ribs are to die for

The restaurant itself is nice and they have a nice bar to sit at separate from the dinning room. Some of the beers they brew onsite and are good to very good. The Chocolate Porter is very good. It's dark but not very heavy, a slight sweetness to the finish and a note of coffee. The Braised short... read more

This place didn't have a wide variety of options for people who have food restrictions. Not sure if I'd give it another try but everything was just okay. Nothing to rave about.

The food and the ambiance were awesome! The sauces were fresh, the food was fantastic and the staff were so accommodating! If you want a great Italian meal, this is the best I have had around Toms River.

Every time I visit family and friends in toms river, this is where we go for dinner. Great food selection and atmosphere. Must try their beers as well. They carry a good selection of home brewed beers. Try the short rib dinner melts in your mouth. Always had a good experience!

First off Artisan's should be rated in the top 20 of Toms River. They serve consistently good food. From burgers to grilled chicken to eggplant parmesan. The specials are fairly priced with Mondays being the day to go .$10 dinners and bottles of wine , this is by far the best deal in town. The selection and portions are truly... More

Stopped in for the early bird specials. Nice atmosphere in the dining room. Server was friendly and SAS prompt throughout our meal. Ordered the ceasar salad, which came topped with carrots and tomato. Never seen that before. I had the chicken parmigiano and the wife had eggplant. Both came topped with fresh Mozzarella over penne pasta. Great taste! I tried... More

My wife and I had to go shopping nearby and thought we would give it a try. We were very delighted. The food was excellent as was the service. I even had to interact with the Manager and that was also a satisfactory experience. If you are in the area try it.
