It's like going to a garage sale, some items are deals, some at a proper price point while others are over valued. Depending on what you select will determine in part your rating. I was there for lunch about 12:30 and it was a cool cloudy day with a breeze. They have a large free parking lot and no pretentious... More

We love the Jersey shore and take every opportunity to go there. This weekend was restaurant week at the Shore so we went to one of our favorite places. Located on the bay and ocean at the same time. The begining of the Jersey Shore.

Bahrs has been around forever. It stands the test of time because of the great food and nice atmosphere. Fresh fish cooked properly, nice clean side like roasted potatoes and string beans. Real shore eating. Next chance you get, head over there, you won't be sorry.

My wife and I visited this location for dinner on Thanksgiving Day. We were seated promptly and quickly began to enjoy our dining experience. We opted out of the turkey dinner and instead ordered items off the regular menu. My wife ordered the lobster bisque with a shot of sherry for starters and the lobster and potato encrusted barramundi as... More

We lunched recently at this seafood restaurant before we toured lighthouses in the area. What a delightful nautical atmosphere right on the water! We were seated promptly and the service was very good. My husband's hamburger was huge and my fried clam plate was plentiful. I just would've preferred a lighter reading on my clams. Their collection of model ships... More

We brought some out of town visitors here to enjoy the view of the water and the fresh seafood. When we got there we saw the Oktoberfest special menu and 3 of 4 of us couldn't help but order the combination special which included bratwurst, Wiener Schnitzel, Rouladen, cabbage and spaetzel. What a treat in combination with the fantastic view... More

We had been dreaming about the muscles in the white wine sauce with garlic bread. On an off season gorgeous fall day we came back - only to find there was also an Oktoberfest menu with home made spaetzle and potato pancakes. We gorged ourselves - we were full for two days, but happily so. The service could be faster,... More

After a lovely very long walk along the Sandy Hook shores we decided to eat lunch at Bahr's Landing. You would think it would make for the perfect end to a perfect day, right?? WRONG. We waited 40 mins for a cup of soup as well as 20 mins on top of that for a simple lunch entree. The service... More
