Bob Heilman's is classic restaurant with tint but beautiful old bat and one of the dining rooms is retro and amazing and the other is modern and bright and beautiful. If you like lunch or dinner with attentive professional wait staff and a great menu and food in a beautiful classic restaurant don't miss Bob Heilman's. Great cocktails, wine list,... More

(No appetizers or desserts) Around $50 for a dinner entree and a cocktail. A little pricey, but then again...you pay for what you get. The seafood platter was DELICIOUS! The scallops were HUGE & so sweet and tender! You can definitely tell it's fresh. Shrimp and salmon were also fresh and perfectly cooked. Although the crab cake has a little... More

Recently had a birthday lunch at Heulman's. Been going here since 1974 and have seen many changes...some good...some not so good. Arrived early since I had recently had surgery and needed to take time getting in. Valet was nice and polite as always. Upon entering restaurant I notice our table was set and I informed hostess I was there early... More

Good food, great service. We were seated promptly and the server was very helpful when they were out of our first 2 wine selections. She provided input on menu choices that were good.

Staff were good. Food was average-my son & I had the prime rib which was not tender & extremely salty (& we both like salty foods!).

We headed to the beach for an anniversary dinner last week. I am so happy that we ended up at Heilman's. Hands down our new favorite place! My husband had the filet and I chose the scallops. It was all cooked perfectly as we ordered. Our server was really on point. The service was excellent. Thank you Goya! You really... More

Restaurant has it all, atmosphere, great service and the best food. Went for an early dinner and was surprised to see they had a very inexpensive early dinner option (full dinners for 14.95 or 15.95) we ordered off the regular menu their clams casino and they were very tasty. They give you relishes and bread/muffins before dinner too. Everything seemed... More

After being somewhat disappointed by other restaurant offerings, I was cautious when we decided to have an early dinner on recommendation from a local. However, we had a great time. They have an early bird dinner menu from 4-5 offering 3 courses for $15 that was ideal for us. It has the appearance of a fancy steakhouse so we were... More

Went here for dinner, it was good, but I think what turned me off was the no personality staff. The offer a relish tray, but that was unimpressive. We were seated by the window so everyone walking by was looking in at us.
