Friendly and familiar place

There aren't many places like this left anywhere, especially Absecon where the choices are few. This is a family friendly sports bar with homemade foods that range from bar food through diner through family restaurant.

Yesterday I had lunch at the Hi Point and ordered the Chicken Franchaise. I have eaten this item out in many restaurants before. However, I must say that it was absolutely awful and I have absolutely no desire to ever go to the Hi Point again!!!

We were staying in A.C. for Christmas week and wanted someplace to go when other places were closed. We stop here every trip, and were glad they were open for the holidays, as they have, hands down,the best Crab Bisque, Seafood Augratin, Crab Cakes and daily specials too. Our server Michelle, who we seem to get every trip or she... More

The Crab Bisque is soooo good! OMG! Everytime I go by that way, I stop and get this soup! I heard the other food is great, but I just cant seem to bother with anything but the bisque! That pic was me snapping a shot off before I killed this soup. It will make you lick the bowl...

This used to be our favorite place to eat. Well before the new cook took over. I know there is a new management and I am sure that plays a big role here also. We ate our usual, the Cajun shrimp and scallops with rice, spinach crab dip and tried a new salad, arugula with beats. The salad was wonderful,... More

We went into the Hi Point on the 19th and had excellent service. I wish we could have this type of service at more restaurants. Our server's name was Betty. She was polite, funny, when we needed refills on our drinks she took care of them right away and quick service.The food was out of this world. Especially the Prime... More

We had some company visiting, and decided to try the Hi Point. What a mistake! The place was busy but we were seated immediately. Service was fast and friendly, and the waitress took care of all of our requests. The food, unfortunately, was not nearly as good as the service. The fettuccine alfredo portion was large, but it was flavorless.... More

The crab bisque and sandwiches are top notch. We've had the French dip, cheesesteaks and chicken cheesesteaks, all were great. The service is pretty bad though, not fast or attentive. They do have daily drink specials and the food is reasonably priced, especially considering it is high quality.

Tried to use a current Entertainment Book coupon. They don't take them because they say "Skelly's" Hi Point Pub. The Special of the Day was so poorly written neither we nor the waitress could figure it out. Ordered shrimp bisque and dinner specials. Waitress forgot to bring the soup and didn't bring any bread until we asked for it. Portions... More
