Our waiter was friendly and helpful in suggesting food on the menu. The crab cakes were excellent. Wish it was open more hours.

Serious menu and interesting choices, but you can still get a very good hamburger if that's what you want. Like eating on the porch the best.

We were recently guests at the Majestic Hotel in Ocean Grove and attended a dinner show event there called “A Night at the Copa”. What an awesome experience! A five piece band which included a female vocalist. They were unbelievably talented and engaging, playing a broad spectrum of music, including many tunes which we danced to. It was like being...

The scallops are fantastic!! I ate here with my family and then had my wedding here. For my wedding the hors d'oeuvres were out of this world! My guests are still talking about them 3 weeks later!

Last year, my husband and I were married in the front yard of the Majestic Inn, the location for the restaurant Bia, then held our reception in the inside room of the restaurant. The food and ambiance were so magical that we decided to return each year to celebrate our anniversaries. We went on the Sunday night before Labor Day,... More

Actually, eating on the porch was lovely with a view of the ocean, but I really did not care for my meal. Because of it's proximity to our hotel, I would try it again.

Spotty service. Some decent dishes (like the scallops and calamari), but the shrimp was a little too seasoned and cooked. Sitting out on the porch is nice, especially when breezy and for people-watching.

We made a reservation and were able to sit on the porch with a great view of the ocean, at least for one of us. The food was OK, but not great. I had the grilled seafood, and the lobster was overdone. My wife had crabcakes - they were average. The buratta salad had pieces of dry bread. The service... More
