Been coming to the Chatterbox for 50 years and it was always fun but not known for great food. That has changed! Newly remodeled, new menu and excellent food. Highly recommend this place.

Refreshing new option at OCNJ well known location. Always our first mean out upon arrival for our annual trip to the shore. The price increase stated in prior reviews are well worth the quality of the food and the excellent service.

We were excited to revisit this place after the re-opening. In summary, the food was bad and the prices were insane. I would not recommend going here which is a shame becuase OC could use a few nicer reataurants.
