This place has an amazing view and convenient parking. You can come for a stroll to enjoy the views, have a mason jar drink at Back Bay Restaurant or breakfast at Gilchrist. Easy access to boats and daily charters. The Atlantic City Aquarium is housed in this corner but unfortunately they are closed at the moment.

we met our departure here for a coastal cruise mid morning. It would have been nice for a coffee place to be open other than the very overcrowded diner. All in all a lovely little place, even though nothing was really open tha early in the day.

The bar made good drinks and the food truck had a line. Nothing else was open and it looks like the area needs a facelift and influx of new businesses to make it a place to visit.

Went there to take the happy hour cruise on a Wednesday. I love the bar next to the dock and I have a great pina colada. Then I had to use the restroom since we have time before our cruise. I asked the bartender where it was and she told me behind that brown house. Which was a restaurant and was closed. Well, I found a few little sheds there and they were all locked up. I had to literally hold myself until I got on the boat to use the restroom. So how can there be an outside bar and no restroom in the area?

Nice little area on the water to get something to eat, drink or go on a boat ride. There are a couple of restaurants back here including Gilcrhist which has a great oudoor breakfast, Back Bay Ale house which has great food & drinks (also outdoors) and a cute outside bar for drinks which is convenient especially if you are going on the Atlantic City Cruise boat ride. All worth checking out this area! Easy free parking. The AC aquarium is back here also but not sure if its open yet due to the pandemic restrictions.
