This restaurant, which has been in this location for many, many years, has good quality food and you can either sit inside or on the deck overlooking the harbor.While the decor is old, the food is consistently good. My mozzarella/prociutto salad was very good as were my husband's scallops. We did not have dessert. It was not cheap but you... More

Clean, friendly, wonderful selection of seafood and drinks. This is my favorite restaurant for lobster. Always come here when I'm in the area. Wonderful view to the river and Sandy Hook.

Visited today with family to celebrate a birthday. The crab cakes were delicious! Splurge and enjoy the biscuits with butter. They are just like Grandma's! We have been coming here for years and are never disappointed!

Refreshed menu, table settings, recipes. Fantastic sunset view. Fried oysters were great. Tender, succulent scallops. Still the seafood restaurant standard!

The food was not what I expected.My wife ordered the flounder and it was undercooked.You would expect more because of their reputation.

We live down the shore so we tend to go to popular places in the off season. Had a nice lunch here. Food was very good for the most part, however the fried oysters were a little fishy tasting. Salmon, crab cakes were good as were the soups. Good service, prices a little above average. Would go back. Nice view.

Bahrs Landing is a fixture at the north end of the Jersey Shore in Atlantic Highlands. It's a nautical themed hangout with a bar, music on occasion, great views, a friendly staff and very nicely done seafood. I recently went for Saturday dinner with friends; we were a party of four. Although we had a reservation, we didn't get seated... More

I enjoyed both the food & atmosphere. I dined here twice in 2 weeks. The seafood combos are very fresh as well as the lobster. Service was friendly on both visits. While I loved the seafood, I think the prices are high, especially $24 for steamers. Atmosphere on the deck is fabulous & they have live entertainment.
