First, the location is superb. Truly the best in all of Asbury Park.The views through the enormous windows of the ocean are unobstructed . There are both indoor and outdoor spaces (and bars) so the weather is never a factor. In the cooler weather you can sit by the indoor fireplace and stare out at the magnificent view while enjoying...

Nothing like the location and view. Draws a high energy crowd with top notch drinks and delicious appetizers and munchies.

But Asbury needs to get... More

Been going here for many years. Relaxing atmosphere, great drinks, great view! A must if you are in Asbury. Fall is great when the fireplace is going, too.

This place was recommended by multiple people as one of the places we needed to try while in Asbury. Unfortunately, although their website clearly states open until 12:00 am, and there were people at the bar out and inside, doors were locked at 10:20 pm tonight, Thursday, September 1st. When we called to find out what was going on, the... More

We love to have drinks at the roof top bar. The wait staff is friendly and the drinks are good. It is a great way to hear the summer concerts at the Stone Pony and people watch! I always enjoy going with my friends or date night with my husband.

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

Asbury's premier beachfront gathering spot. Part sophisticated drinkery and tapas bar, part music lounge and social club, Watermark's environment is contemporary yet comfortable, refined yet relaxed, upscale yet inclusive.
