Sorry, I have never rated a restaurant as poor. Had dinner reservations and decided to have a drink at the bar first. Chose because of favorable reviews. The building smelled of bleach and moth balls. We finished our drink and appetizer and left. The rock shrimp and calamari was quite good but just couldn't take the odor anymore.

Food was very good, especially Short Ribs. Third time we have visited and were not disappointed. Pricey but worth it for special night out. Our first visit was during Hurricane Irene. We were a party of eight and had the place to ourselves due to the storm.

We first visited this restaurant right after they opened and have been there each year. I call in for a reservation and they say Hell Mr. xxx glad to hear from you when would you like to come in" That is just service start.

Enjoyable experience, above average food and a reasonable wine menu. Staff was very good and friendly. Nice evening. Did not come away as a favorite, but would not shy away from this place when back in the area.

Have been a customer since they opened their doors. Last season (2015) things seemed "tired", "routine". Feels like the kitchen/chef lost their energy. Sorry to say that. Hope they perk up this seasn.

Meals are prepared well albeit small portioned. Nice ambiance and friendly service. The lower level can get noisy at times due to the low ceiling. Usually nice live music at a comfortable volume. If you don't mind overpriced dining, this is your place.

Chef Steve and his staff At Fuze remain the Top Restaurant at the Jersey Shore. The very best fresh offerings cooked and served to perfection. (Drinks ain't too shabby also!) Fuze is my favorite restaurant and has been for years. Consistency is the name of the game and Fuze does it. NEVER had a bad or even so-so meal here.... More
