My wife and I visited Seaside Heights. for the first time and decided to try Spicy's Cantina for lunch. The restaurant is directly on the boardwalk and the top floor provides a great view of the boardwalk and ocean.

The place was very nice and staff very friendly however we sat under a cooling outlet (register) which kept dropping water in our food and head! All and all was a very nice place and we definitely recommend going there. Portions are very generous.

I was really excited about eating here because of the great seaside view and cool atmosphere but was highly upset. The crab cake sandwich was all breading and no meat and was so greasy it soaked through the roll. The Chips they give you in the beginning were stale. And my boyfriends burger was definitely a frozen patty out of... More

The food and drinks were excellent. The service was prompt, courteous and friendly and the view to the ocean was fabulous. They also make a mean Bloody Mary to start your day off right!!

Service was sharp, food was excellent, beer was COLD! The seating is a bit tight, but the view is nice. The prices were reasonable. My daughter ordered enchiladas and raved about the sauce. My husband ordered epenadas and they were out, thought that was odd considering it is a Mexican restaurant.
