This is a local pub. it is not fancy but the food is good and service beyond what i encountered in Atlantic City. The place is friendly and you get your money's worth.

Other half ordered grilled chicken Caesar salad both times in fall. Chicken in salad was over cooked and dry. 2nd time it happened I called to speak with manager. She assured me... More

The Hi Point Pub has been around for decades and has its share of ups and downs. Service was always great and the Hi Point Special sandwich was amazing. Lately however they are on a downward spiral and seem more interested in the place becoming a hangout for college kids and that will only take you so far. The bread... More

Stopped in for a quick dinner on a Sunday night in summer. Flounder Francese was smothered in artichokes. JUMBO scallops were scrawny & over cooked. Inexperienced server. Food served a long time after we ordered. Can't really find anything good to say about this place.

although I have not visited this establishment I have requested more than 5 times for them to STOP faxing their menu to our establishment. I have spoken to and written to them to no avail.

Great place to drink and have a great meal at a reasonable price. The service is great and the menu has a large selection to pick from. They have specials going on that can't be beat. I love this place.

My reason for visiting Shelly's High Point Pub, was to have a few beers and relax. After a few visits I tried the chiken wings, which I would highly recommend. They also have a tasty roost beef sanwich which I would also recommend. The prices are moderate, so I give it a thumbs -up.

I was really looking forward to trying this place. I specifically went there to try their prime rib. I told the waitress from the start I want it well done, and I do not want an end cut, nor do I want it butterflied. When my order came it was an end cut, and I could take my knife and... More

We visited based on a recommendation to try the wings. And we got 12 smokin' hot wings, which were impressive - but not for overall satisfaction. They were huge, and maybe that justifies the $1/wing price-tag. But they were soggy and not crisp, and I was slightly disappointed (although the flavor was good and the meat was juicy). I took...

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. The food prices are reasonable (but surprisingly the drink prices are high). Locals know and frequent this place but visitors are greeted with a warm... More
