We arrived in Surf City late Friday night and didn't know where to eat. We decided to stop here because it was one of the first places we saw. We were the only ones waiting for a table, but it took a long time to be seated (still not sure what that was about). My husband had the prime rib... More

I cannot believe the poor and very arrogant attitudes of the staff! The bartender was so insulting and unprofessional that no one worth their salt would keep this person employed! Never again will I step foot in that place and I hope people who read this review take notice and totally avoid this horrible restaurant. Not a place for young... More

I ordered a filet Med Rare with a side of grilled shrimp. My son got a burger and my daughter shared with me. Took a long time to get our food. My Filet Mignon came out well done. By the time the waitress came I had 3 bites of food left. They were supposed to give me a discount for... More

The service was not all that great. DO NOT come without a reservation. The dress is casual. The food was excellent! Try any of the desserts, they are all wonderful! The caramel apple martini was delicious!!

Great service, good food. Believe our servers name was Rebecca, she was very attentive and service oriented. I am not a sea food eater, so this may not be best review. ..however we had the hush puppies and hot chicken wings as appetitizers- yum. For meals we had...ribs (the kids loved them, faces were covered in bbq), cheese pizza (kids... More

Stopped by for dinner after a day at the beach. Read the reviews before entering. Saw some references to poor and rude service but risked it anyway. Upon entering the group of 3 ahead of us was seated. The restaurant was about half full. While we waited the hostess talked with one of the servers. She returned and told us... More

Very pleased with this place. My family and I went back twice the food and service was so good. Great food, and service is hard to find anymore and this place had them both. Try the crab dip appetizer....amazing!

Thickly breaded flounder and scallops were overcooked. The breading fell off when cut. Cole slaw was minced cabbage with very little dressing. Cold fries. Cant get fries and hush puppies without ordering one as a side item. Their other items are much better. Shrimp and crab au gratin was delicious. Crab stuffed mushrooms were good but overpriced.

The seafood had absolutely NO FLAVOR - no seasoning, no salt, no pepper! If you would have blind folded me an... More

We always enjoy our trip to Quartermasters. The specials are good (wings and brews) and the meals are great as well. The bar side seems busy on our visits and the restaurant side is relaxing and casual. Service was very good also.
