“Cosmo and Company never gives up!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

This was our second visit to the Breakers; I noted the first time that not only were the accommodations first class, and the restaurant a five star experience, all of the help seem to anticipate your needs. Well, that has not changed, our room with a fabulous ocean view was spotlessly prepared, and the Chef's special on Monday night was an inch thick Rib-Eye steak covered with exquisitely prepared sauted mushrooms. A gravy boat filled with more mushrooms was also served, making the dinner a little above five-star, if that is possible. As for staff, they not only anticipate your needs, they do the impossible when necessary. On our third day, we found that we needed to be in a town on the New Jersey/New York border at 10:00am the next morning. As breakfast is not served until 8:00, and we needed to leave before then, it seemed that we would have a hungry trip. Not so, the staff prepared two very generous helpings of "Breakers" coffee cake with fresh strawberries, and made sure that coffee would be ready at 6:30. This type of thoughtful service is priceless. On a personal note, my only disappointment was that the Piano Lounge was not used the days we were there, we found that a nightcap in the lounge listening to their talented pianist is the perfect way to end a day at the ocean.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

We had a great dinner with good service here and some nice breakfasts. However, there was a major party going on on the porch. This gave us a view of the backs of the party goers and not the ocean.

“Great location, nice vibe, decent food...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Went here on a date, good for that...very comfortable bar and dining room has nice view, it's right across the street from the beach...a nice adult departure from the 'Jersey Shore' twenty something madness...
