We ate early dinner at Pirate's Den every night we were in Brigantine. Their early bird special is from 4-5:30. It includes soup or salad, beverage, entrée, and dessert for 1 reasonable price. They have a salt water fish tank the children all seem to enjoy. Their soup is homemade. Their fried scallops were fantastic! The crabcakes were very good... More

We visited for a late lunch. Three people ordered clam chowder, all three seemed pleased. The lobster quesadilla was light on lobster, but filling and enjoyable (plenty of eggs, roasted peppers, and cheese) nonetheless. The crab imperial satisfied two in our group. Was perfect for our group.

We headed to this restaurant for breakfast after checking out of our resort - worth the few minute drive and we timed it perfectly, nabbing the last 2 seat table inside before the waits began. The menu was varied with many choices and the food was excellent, along with the friendly service from our waitress. Would definitely visit them again... More

There is always a waiting line...because its good. I had a delicious crab and asparagus omelette and my wife had eggs over corned beef hash. We were satisfied. My only issue is that it could be a little cleaner inside. The coffee pots, for instance, looked like they have never been cleaned, just rinsed.

My family and I have had a house around the corner from the PD for over 25 years. For the last ten years it was a breakfast go -to. You could always count on a hot simple breakfast and they made the best chicken cheesesteaks on the island outside of Ernest and Sons. I am heading back home to NYC... More

Meals were excellent. The crab and asparagus omelette was very good. I'd go back. Dinner was good. We brought our own wine.

Charming and surly all at the same time makes The Pirate's Den a hit or miss, depending on the service. Large amounts of food and amazingly creative breakfasts make it worth the visit. We always enjoy the food, but wish the service could be a bit happier. Upscale diner, upscale price, great location for a walk on the beach after... More
