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.

The large vats behind the bar,caught my eye. TV's all around( sports bar look is deceiving) My waiter, Marc had a lot to say because... More

We had honestly meant to go here for awhile and then I got an email from Living Social offering a dining special at Artisan's and a beer sampler with our dinner. Luckily, I opted to take the offer. I called to make a reservation and the manager was a lovely girl who was very friendly and accommodating. We arrived and... More

I was a bit hesitant to visit based on some of the Yelp reviews, but the menu looked good and my Husband is a sucker for breweries. We had the grilled octopus and lamb sliders and for entrees the linguini with white clam sauce and the lobster fettuccini pasta special. Everything was really good and our waitress was friendly and... More

I have been here twice within 1 month. Both visits were very very good. Their menu has many unexpected items on them such as grilled octopus and grilled pizza. The ricotta and freshly made rosemary flatbread appetizer was superb. They have a nice variety of beer (brewed right there) which a few in my party found to be a major... More
