Average Restaurant. Wasn’t overall impressed. Hamburger was way overcooked, salad was very generic. More of a breakfast or quick lunch spot than dinner. Parking can be difficult. Service was so so, had a ask repeatedly for items.

Stopped here after a day at the beach. Overall good food and service. We had the fish and chips, blt, and grilled cheese. Portions are on the smaller side, but that was good for us since we had dinner plans. It’s byob which we didn’t...know so it was a bit of a disappointment not to have a beer/wine with lunch, but we’ll be prepared for next time. We sat outside so bring bug spray for the green heads. Would definitely go back!More

Parking was a little difficult but we found a space on a side street. We were greeted by a friendly waitress and she was great the entire meal. We started with clam chowder and French onion soup which were both huge disappointments. The onion soup...had either paprika or old bay seasoning on it and was strange tasting. The chowder was one of the worst I’ve ever had. No clam taste and it was also strangely thick and looked like condensed soup without the liquid. For the entrees we had the fresh red snapper and broiled seafood platter. The snapper was outstanding- the best thing we ate. I chose the twice baked potato and vegetables. Skip the potato as it was thick and gluey. The platter was good not great with the scallops being the standout. I would go back and learn from our first choices and get the catch of the day only.More

We went to this place twice, for breakfast first and it was wonderful, everything just right and as expected. We also went for dinner another night and the food was great, as expected, but the portions were small I thought. Service was always great and...would go back again when we return in the future.More

We took our dog to the dog beach for the first time. We were hungry after the beach and happened to park right at the Pirates Den. We were so happy we stopped in. They gave our dog a nice bowl of water and some...treats and they graciously served us outside because we had the dog. The meal was delicious and the staff was friendly and wonderful.More

Disgusting, unsanitary restaurant. Was there for breakfast and after getting to the bottom of one of our mugs of coffee there was clearly a layer of something gross looking, chunky, and foreign at the bottom. After almost throwing up out of disgust I took the...mug to the manager and asked for an explanation. She came back and said it looks like panko breadcrumbs and that they use the mugs for breading crab cakes. Cross contamination anyone? No apology, no offer to do anything, no evidence of caring at all. I would be scared for anyone having to eat at this disgusting place. They don’t care about you or your experience or your safety at all.More

Delicious, affordable, and friendly, what else can you ask for when on vacation. the marscapone stuffed French toast was delicious. If I could make one suggestion, add a gluten free version of this to the menu,

Our daughter decided we needed a safe getaway and had planned a Brigantine trip for over a year. It did not disappoint. We started and finished the trip eating at our favorite place…The Pirates Den. The staff was so friendly. I asked our waitress what...her favorite breakfast was, Fortunately she told me about the Bananas Fosters French Toast. We had a bit of a wait, which we expected. When the waitress came back later I told her that I would have waited 3 hours. The best breakfast I had ever had. Loved it so much that we also had our last meal there after a fun relaxing week. Wonderful trip and fantastic food!More

I think they are short staffed, the staff was very nice but it was a 45 min wait and then we were there long as well. My steak was cooked wrong ( several parts were one way and other parts another way). Had to ask...for silverware and bread. My mom wasn’t thrilled with hers either. There’s better options to eat.More

Seafood was just average. Should be better at the shore. I ordered scallops imperial. Not sure that the were really scallops. Twice baked potato was very good.

We are new to Brigantine but on our first night we were tired so we thought we would try it as they deliver. What a pleasant surprise. It was quick and arrived hot and was delicious. We had the family down the next night and...ordered from there again and the same thing happened. It was quick, hot and delicious. We have ordered here several times and the only item we did not care for was the twice baked potato. We just love the sea scallops with crab imperial and the Greek shrimp with pasta. This is enough for 2 meals. Oh, did I say the food was delicious.More
