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.

Wow I( cant wait to go again. We stopped off a quick bite and enjoyed our food and drinks. I guess everything on the shore is expensive so we did not over do it

Nice place to hang out with friends. Live music and cold beer always make for a great time. The bar overlooks the beach. When we were here it was fairly quiet but I would imagine that this place would be packed on a warm summer day. Well worth a look.

Two large bars both with ocean views. Drink selections are great, large buckets of whatever you want to drink and service is excellent.

It's located beach front of the Convention Hall, tucked right in the corner for a perfect Asbury Park view. Grab a beach bed, order a Rum Bucket, Guac and chips... Chill and have fun! 'nuf said

Only had drinks there. $8.00 for a gin & tonic in a SMALL little plastic cup. Music was very loud. There are nicer places along the boardwalk to go and enjoy the scenery
