Service was good. We were able to sit outside. Everyone enjoyed the food you have to try the mac&cheese appetizer. Couldn't stop eating it.

All had excellent meals. I had Roast Duck and enjoyed it greatly. The bakes seafood combo was the second fav at our table. Drinks excellent. A touch pricey.

What an exceptional gem at the shore. Superb presentations. Superlative table service. Ambience is unmatched. 3 floors with many windows overlooking the lake and Ocean Grove. Well priced for the experienced.

This is the first time I have gone to Moonstruck and have been unable to order their Asian Shrimp, which is clearly listed on the restaurant's online menu. If they cannot keep the online menu current, they should not have it on their website. I was eagerly anticipating the Asian Shrimp, but had to make do with an indifferent grilled... More

We went to Moonstruck this past weekend with our dear friends. Everything was perfect from the appetizers, to the entree to the desert. Including our waiter, who was very attentive. I would sincerely recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for a delicious dinner.

Don't waste your time. there are so many excellent restaurants - this place is rude, loud and definitely not what the website builds it up to be. We were told there was a 45 minute wait. No problem - had cocktails at the bar. 1-1/2 hours later and after questioning the 2 gentlemen at the front who were extremely rude... More

Our food was well prepared and we had excellent service from Ed. I had the Branzino which was perfectly prepared and served over mashed potatoes-not a typical pairing but it really worked. The accompanying vegetables although simple had wonderful flavor which rounded out the dish. My husband had the halibut special which he liked but did not love. He felt... More

Would love to give a higher rating than 5! Four friends had a great saturday night dinner at Moonstruck. This time we sat out on the deck with a great lake view during sunset. Delicious food, great drinks, friendly & attentive service, and welcoming ambiance were all there. I love their seafood dishes, and creative starters. If you want a... More

Moonstruck is my favorite place. The service is impeccable, the food is amazing, the scenery is perfect, the owners are friendly and those Bloody Mary's...to die for. We go on special occasions because it's such a special place, we are never disappointed. We have introduced many friends to moonstruck and they all thank us for sharing such a great place.

Wow! What a great restaurant and located in Asbury Park! I thought you had to go to 10 miles to Long Branch for such a great meal. Moonstruck has lots of 5 star reviews but our meal was so good, here's another: Highlights: the restaurant was crowded but they have parking and we didn't have to wait even without a... More
