Description: Back Bay has been open in AC since 2003. We pride ourselves on great service, delicious food and fantastic atmosphere and views. In the warmer months we feature outside dining and bar. We are the home of the Basin Mason, a 32oz mason jar beverage. We have a large variety of craft beers. Nightly on our upstairs deck we do a sunset toast to say goodbye to the daylight :)

“Beautiful Sunset Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Reasonably priced fresh seafood sandwiches and nice sized salads! We enjoyed the Cajun Mahi Mahi sandwich and the Seafood Cobb Salad. Top deck provides the best views of the AC marina and its hotel casinos, especially at sunset. Good selection of draft beers and drinks! The service was excellent for a busy Saturday night crowd, and it was great not be rushed even though there was a wait for tables. Another plus is the free parking

“Good pub fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Casual dining on the water. Standard pub fare -- nice variety of salads, baskets with fries, and sandwiches. Friendly staff. Cold beer and 32 oz mixed drinks served in mason jars. Try to sit upstairs for the best views.

“Great little place in the Basin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

We ate here while awaiting for our trip out on the Highroller Fishing boat. Our party of 5 enjoyed the food, which was a bit slowing coming out considering we were about the only ones there that weekday. The fish and chips were not greasy and I really enjoyed the crab cake sandwich. Pricing was really reasonable and the waitress was nice. We will be sure to come back the next fishing trip out on the back bay. Location is perfect for those visiting the aquarium or doing a fishing charter. Parking is plentiful.

“Great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We spotted this gem by accident trying to find our way out of Atlantic City. It was mid-afternoon and we were a bit hungry and thirsty. We decided to take a seat at the bar and were greeted by a bartender that could actually mix a good drink and carry on a conversation. The food arrived and we were both very satisfied with our meals. Don't miss this place if you are in Atlantic City. It has that great Key West feel with a very competent staff.

“Key West Northern Branch Office”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Great food and drink nestled in a two-story house in Gardeners Basin. The food and atmosphere make me feel as though a piece of Key West was cut away and brought to Atlantic City. We will be back before this trip is over.
