Every Time I Come Here I Order This Refreshing Cocktail. I Find a Spot With a Nice View In The Lounge or Outside & Relax Near The Ocean. I Highly Recommend This Place For The Music & Variety of Drink Options, But Always Start With The Mermaid & The Walrus Cocktail!

This place is really nice. They have great happy hour stuff including lobster pizza which was delicious! Their watermark lemonade is dangerously delicious and standing outside with a glass of it on a summer day gives you a great view of the water & the Asbury park Boardwalk. We came inside cuz of rain, but the cool lighting, big couches... More

We stopped for drinks on a rainy beach day. My friends choose a nice bottle of chardonnay that we shared along with some snacks. The place has a large outdoor area that was not attractive on a rainy, windy, cool day but certainly would be most of the time. The inside is set up for large groups of people there... More

We came here for date night and were very impressed. The indoor bar was just about to close, but the bartender was very nice and welcomed us to stay in the lounge area after making a great Old Fashioned. The music was great, and we loved the atmosphere!

This is what you'd expect from a beach-side bar with a modern twist on socializing....lounge furniture instead of the ole' standard tables and chairs arrangement; floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the water takes full advantage of the location; fireside area for the nights you've got the sunburn-chill. We stopped for drinks and appetizers and the place if just Fun!

They have a great, atmosphere, music, and crowd. I love going to this place! A good variety of appetizers at decent prices, pleasant staff, and comfortable decor makes for a very enjoyable evening. It is a great place for an early off the beach drink or to dance the night away.

Roof top bar with indoor and outdoor seating. Very good service. The drinks were a little pricey but delicious. You can hear the music on the Stone Pony summer stage.

Right on the boardwalk and overloooking the ocean, this place can get crowded on a Saturday night....but our recent visit was very enjoyable. There's not really a dance floor, but around midnight if the music is good, the crowd dances wherever it can....there's a nice bar and large seating area outside on a deck, and the bar is well-stocked with...
