Went during restaurant week for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Looks like nothing special from the outside and once inside it's a typical bar/restaurant on the Jersey Shore. The food I had was fantastic as was the friendly service. Clams casino was very good. The Beef short rib panini with gruyere and arugula was fantastic and the Creme Brûlée was... More

We visited the Wonder Bar several years ago, and it was NOT good. But we had an opportunity to try it again during 50bites, so we figured, "Why not?" We were sooo glad we did! Apparently, it has a new owner since we were last there, and the food is 100% better. The bar is very large with lots of... More

Bartender had almost no knowledge about the draft beers available but I figured there might be some new ones since he last worked. But then he overcharged for some drinks and when confronted about it, he lied. Who needs that? Waiter was nice so I'm giving it 2 stars, instead of 1.

We ate here during the #50bitesAC promotion/charity event. They served their Philly Cheesesteak Spring Roll. It was Excellent. Quick and Friendly Service.

Stopped at Wonder Bar for a late lunch. This restaurant/bar is a little off the beaten path, away from the hustle and bustle of the casinos, but still within the city limits of AC. The restaurant has a large indoor seating area with plenty of TV's and a cute casual deck/tiki bar area overlooking the bay. The outdoor area is... More

Went with friends for dinner on the deck to satisfy our water view cravings. Menu is extensive and I was intrigued by the salad with meatballs. Might sound weird but it turned out to be delicious. Three meatballs stuffed with cheese come on top of a salad of arugula and romaine lettuce with a few slices of fresh mozzarella cheese... More

New ownership has most definitely helped this restaurant! The quality & selection has improved greatly. Great place to sit out on seek over the water. I had the Tomato Stack with Mozzarella & some great Jersey tomatoes drizzled with Balsamic glacé- excellent. Also had Stuffed Tomato with Tuna also very good. Service is very efficient & helpful. Was there 4... More

An impressive server named andrea v took care of us at an outside table on the intercoastal. Great outdoor waterfront venue, which atlantic city lacks despite being on an island. A decent menu with live music.

This multi generational fixture at the foot of the Albany Ave Bridge has a new owner and menu, but still packs the deck for dinner and drinks in the evening. Try to arrive before six for ease of parking and seating, or arrive by boat or jet ski and tie up at their ample floating dock. However and whenever you... More

We stopped in because I heard it had been redone and I was anxious to see. I have been to the deck but had only been inside to use the restroom and I was not impressed before. Dark and dingy. Well not anymore. It is real pretty. The walls are a sky blue and the bar looks out over the... More
