This place is so wonderful, no wonder they can keep such limited hours. Its does feel like a country club.... which I love. The waitstaff was attentive and polite, the food was simply delicious and large portions. The cocktails were spot on. The next time I come to asbury I am going to eat here more than once!!!

We arrived with friends at 6:30, asked for an outside table and were told the wait was 45 minutes. No problem, we found a nice table on the first deck near the bar and settled in for drinks. Was a beautiful evening and being outdoors was great after the unusually recent hot weather. After a short while we were told... More

Visited for a Saturday evening dinner and sat outside- building has 3 levels of outdoor dining- so if the weather is nice there is a great view and much nicer than sitting in the noisy (although air conditioned) indoor gallery. There is an extensive wine & specialty cocktail menu to enjoy. The dinner menu is varied and although establishment considers... More

Even though we had to wait a bit for a table, it was not a problem, becuase we sat on the porch enjoying a drink. The menu had great choices and the service was great. The only problem was fining a parking spot in Asbury Park on a Saturday night in the summer. Would definitely return!

Had great drinks and dinner on Friday night at its lovely restaurant. Listening to the jazz band in the bar was very enjoyable while we waited for a table. We ordered appetizers and they were ready when our table was ready. Recomend the steak skewrers. They do not take reservations so we got there around 8:45 and waited 30 minutes.... More

This very popular restaurant is worth the wait. Get there by 5pm sharp or expect an hour wait. Great view and fantastic service. Large variety of food at moderate prices. Excellent wine selection.

we've been going to moonstruck when it was an hour wait in ocean grove before they moved to their larger space on the lake in asbury park...the food and service are always excellent...whether it's a special occasion or just a drink and apps at the bar or one of the pub tables near the piano, you just can never go...

Enjoyed a much needed night out with my husband. The crowd was a bit older but we enjoyed that, we didn't want a "young hip" vibe.. we wanted to relax and enjoy ourselves! We waited for our table in the lounge where we had a nice waiter who brought up wonderful martinis and they do not skimp on the alcohol... More
