“New outside patio is nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

Good place for a drink and appetizer. The crabs they are known for, are mushy (not soft shell) & don't taste fresh. Same poor quality crabs as with last ownership, but the music & outside patio was nice.

“Good food, just a little expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

The food was very good, but the service needs some work. My husband and I split a meal and an appetizer because we were not super hungry. The shrimp was good just didn't think we would only get 4 for $10.00. When our meal came out our server said he would be right back with an extra plate and he never came back thankfully the appetizer plates were still on the table which by the way was a tiny plastic Solo style plate.

“!st Time in Years”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

We spend our non work days on the beach and we always walk past Bums on the way to our car. They opened an outdoor area and they had a band playing on weekends. They have an inside and outside kitchen so this review is solely on our experience outside. Sadly there was no band when we went there yesterday but let's get to the food. For starters my daughter had clams on a half shell which she loved. My wife and I got Lobster Bisque which was ok. For dinner I got the Crab Cakes and the ladies got Lobster and Crab Stuffed Shrimp. Both dinners were really good. Service was ok; a little slow but that is the way resort areas are. Overall dinner was really good and we would recommend it.

“Not the best !!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Come on Jersey ... Is this the best we have?? !! Usually don't like to give bad reviews but .. I guess if you don't eat crabs than you will be disappointed with almost everything else !!!

“Not a family restaurant..”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

I came here with my family of five, and we found the restaurant very unfriendly and unpleasant. A members of my family were looking forward to king crab legs but were unable to get them. We were recommended there, and we soon after realized it was because of the bar, not the food. If your looking for a place to stay up late at the bar, its fine, but it wasn't generally family friendly.
