Food is great, but wait until you see the views!

Don't be intimidated when you see how high this restaurant is. There is a small elevator that goes directly to the front door. The dining room overlooks the bay. The views are beautiful. The staff is very accommodating of any customer needs. The food is very good with seafood being a focus. This is... read more

First, I have eaten here before and had lovely meals. Second, you need to know I do not eat pasta and the pastas seem to be their strongest dishes. OK, having said all that I was disappointed last week when we took friends to PB. We were seated fairly quickly (did have a reservation) and service was good. My goat... More

1.) Food: Consistently excellent 2.) Staff: Friendly and very helpful 3.) Ambiance: Beautiful views of the bay and the distant twinkling lights of AC. One of our favorite restaurants. Love that it's BYOB so we can bring our favorite wine and drink what we want. We never feel rushed and love to linger over the delicious food and fabulous view.... More

Panini Bay overlooks Barnegat Bay, and the views are wonderful. Combine this with fresh, outstanding food, and you've got a winner. You'll be tempted to have nothing but the freshly baked bread in dipping oil, but that would be a mistake. Yes, it's absolutely the best Italian bread I've ever had; and, yes, I could make a meal of it.... More

read a review on this restaurant and decided to give it a try. I will say this was my all time favorite dishes of cavatelli and broccoli ..I actually said I can't remember the last time a dish made me that happy. We went with another couple. The guys had the Bolognese sauce, which is one of the restaurants signature... More

Dined here for the first time, despite living in the town for the past four years. Family of four seated with a great waterfront view. This is a BYOB restaurant. Our bottle of wine was promptly opened and served. Ask for Kelly. She did a fantastic job with meal recommendations and her overall service. Olive oil and warm bread for... More

My husband and I like this restaurant very much. We have been going here for years. Food is very good and its a BYOB. What I find amusing is that one of the reviewers disliked the eggplant parm and I love it. I like the fact you can have it skin on or off. Sauce on or on the side.... More

Good food, service, nice decor. Scenic views. BYOB. Nice to bring a bottle and grab an appetizer and dessert on a Sunday afternoon. Have been here numerous times.
