We had a wonderful dinner. There were 4 of us and we all enjoyed what we had. The menu is very varied with seafood & Italian dishes being the favorites. The house dressing for the salad is superb! We make sure to go at least once a year.

After reading some good reviews, we decided to order take out from Cousin's on our first night in OC. We ordered organic grilled chicken, chicken Parmesan, and Linguini with meatballs. The dinner came with bread and one salad which we were able to share. The salad was pretty fresh and dressing was good. The meals, however, were just OK. The... More

We stay in OCNJ every year with our family (mostly cousins) so we decided to give Cousin's a try. The food was excellent and the portions were very large. The inside could use a little updating but other than that no complaints. We will definitely go back again.

Let my husband search on TripAdvisor for a restaurant while on vacation and he picked cousins. Of course I checked out the previous diners reviews - some had me a little concerned, but we still went. The hostess did great us, and asked us which table we wanted(went on a Sunday night around 7pm - not too crowded). It did... More

We tried Cousins on recommendation from a friend. We are glad we checked this place out. This place is sort of of the beat-and-path in the residential area, a part of the island I always forget about. We had reservations for 6 people at 4:30 pm. We were quickly seated by friendly staff. Our waitress was very nice. The bread... More

Had dinner in this place with my family. We are very satisfied of the food except for the service. As soon as we arrived, the Blond lady/cashier/maybe owner welcomed us with a "not so happy look". No smile and looking as if she was not happy to see us. Then me and my family waited for 20 minutes to finally... More

We visited Cousins for dinner to avail of their Twighlight Specials. With the various discounted entrees a family salad and dessert were included. Our party of three ordered a Clams Casino appetizer which was great but only contained 5 clams...Either Cousins has reduced the number or my memory is off but I recollect (6) in prior orders. For entrees we... More

The food at Cousin's was good. However, the portions were way too big. My husband and I shared a meal, paid an extra $5 charge for it, and still had leftovers. Being on vacation and not having anywhere to heat up leftovers, we didn't take them with us. I would rather have a smaller portion and be charged less. The... More
