There is usually a wait but it's worth it. Great selection including seafood to burgers. Have eaten there over the years & quality and service are still great. They have a good selection of wine and/or beer too. All prices are reasonable especially for the NJ shore. Must go is my summary!

Little corner bar looking place really surprised us with great fresh food and an amazing craft beer selection. This place is a hidden gem at the shore! See you in July Crest Tavern!

Stopped on Saturday and wanted to have a quick bite. They had a special meal, chicken pot pie and we decided to try. Great size portion and taste was excellent. Also had some soup. Overall service was great, food a good portion and I'll comeback again.

The Crest Tavern is a friendly year round local place to have a great meal... Although it is small the food is well prepared and the staff are very friendly... You can take the family as they can accommodate the children... Mine love their chicken tenders.

They have some of the best food on the island. Everything is homemade and the locals keep it going year round so you know its good. Excellent homemade soups.

The old neighborhood bar isn't what it used to be. Food not as good and don't see the same old faces around anymore. Prices have been raised but not the food quality.

We have a condo in Wildwood Crest and this place is about five blocks away. Everything I've had here has been very good. Prices are very fair. Open all year.
