“Good meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

This restuarant should be a good fit for Driveins/Diners and Dives. We all enjoyed our meal at this new farm to table establishment. The food was fresh and interesting. Slight negative, even though there were several vegetarian options, non had any protein. They were out of the vegetarian burger. Will definitely return.

“what a great suprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

It was 9[m leaving a vacation at Cape May and we were very hungry. We were told that Ocean City was not noted for great restaurants but reviews on Yelp directed us to this unassuming spot. We just wanted enough food to keep us going. What a surprise as this was one of the best restaurants that we have ever been to The owners really know all that there is to know about food preparation My Chesapeake chowder was excellent and the scallops were as tender as can be.. We will detour to this restaurant when ever we visit south Jersey

“I want to try EVERYTHING on the menu!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Several weeks ago a new restaurant opened in Ocean City close to the heart of the town. We happened in for breakfast, and were so impressed by the food including the Jersey Devil, that we took family back for another breakfast. Then I told friends, and they also joined us a couple weeks later for another terrific breakfast, including delicious grits, and homemade jelly - two things that show great attention to detail. Stopped in again on Friday morning for breakfast and saw an amazing sign on the front door. SOFT SHELL CRABS are here. The following night, Paula, our server met us with a welcoming smile and Judy, the owner explained that the crabs were harvested at midnight, and on my plate at 6PM the following evening. Done to perfection, we enjoyed each bite. We were compelled to return today for lunch- it was almost impossible to pick one thing one the menu! Of course I devoured the "Bacon Bomb" . Since we know the quality of food, we will have to keep visiting Fire until we have tried everything.

“A new restaurant for foodies in OCNJ!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

we had a party of 6 with high expectations and the chef impressed all of us. I tried an oyster stew at his suggestion and enjoyed fresh seafood in a light saffron flavored broth. 3 of us raved about the soft shell crab special. The crabs had molted the same day and were prepared Perfectly sautéed. they also have the herbs used for cooking growing organically right in the dining room! There are healthy choices for the children, but if you have picky eaters, a chef-quality Mac and cheese and delicious French fries are available. Great burgers too. The chef and his wife Are terrific hosts and made us feel like part of the family on our first visit. We will be back again soon.

“Fresh and delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

The new bistro, Fire on the Beach, has a delightful, innovative and refreshing menu. There are many options to satisfy all tastes and cravings. I tried the Chesapeake Chowder and it was a perfect blend of seafood and spice. The beef blue salad was a generous plate of fresh fresh greens, tomatoes, slivered beef, Stilton blue and red peppers in a tasty aioli dressing. My husband tried the flatbread pizza and it was delicious. Overall a great lunch, pleasant service and unique menu. We will definitely return and would highly recommend stopping by here for a memorable meal.
