A great place to have a cocktail & listen to some live music, ocean side. Drinks are compatibly priced to other beach bars. Bartender was very pleasant but, he was trying to take care of everyone SOLO & service was slow through no fault of his own. There were 2 or 3 registers on the back bar but, only one... More

Perfect spot to sit with a drink...beautiful view of the ocean and the beach. The bartender was very helpful when we asked him for a restaurant recommendation in town.

Beach Bar is an Asbury Park staple. For years I've been coming to Asbury, sometimes for the beach, and other times for the nightlife. Beach Bar is always the spot I choose to get the party started. Their Rum Buckets are awesome and the breeze and ocean view make for a good back drop for any time of day.

This place is right on the beach. So in between swims or for a break from tanning it's nice to stop in have a drink and dance a bit. The rum buckets are a fun summer drink. The service isn't the fastest, but the only people who seem to be in a rush are the drunk girls cutting the line... More

The Beach Bar is so loud that you can't even hear yourself think. That, or I might just be too old. Came here with my boyfriend and another couple after a day of baking on the beach. We went for one of their rum buckets. Although they put a bunch of different rums in there, it still doesn't taste that... More

The best part about this place is that it's ON the beach. The outdoor bartender was really nice and gave us some tips about the area. I would avoid the rum runner though; it's basically a spring break type drink/hangover in a cup. Otherwise, awesome spot to check out on the beach!!

Caroline from the Stone Pony recommended we pop in for a rum bucket which we ordered along with our lunch, and we liked them so much we decided to stay another day!

Went there on visit, and saw the fantastic view from bar overlooking beach from convention hall and went in for lunch. The food was good and well presented, my only complaint on food was that my cod sandwich was skimpy on cod. No on tap you had to go to its co owned restaurant The Anchors Bend located inside convention... More
