We enjoyed our dining experience and I had possibly the best salmon dish I've ever had. It came with a ginger/orange sauce over rice. Very nice atmosphere, reminiscent of the Spring Lake of years ago. Piano player lent a nice touch.

Went to the Breakers for a family reunion dinner this past Saturday. First time here for all of us. We had drinks at the piano bar, and then were seated at a great table by the window overlooking the ocean. Food was average in general, with one dinner needing to go back because it was overcooked.

Had dinner and lunch at the breakers. Both meals were very good. I had an artichoke salad that was good as well as shrimp. Steaks are good and nice salads. The service was good. Relaxing atmosphere as well. Would recommend.

I love this place. I've been twice with my grandparents, who discovered it years ago. The Breakers serves amazing food, and the included salad and pizza bread are always an added (delicious) bonus. Sometimes they have too many specials or seafood options with lemon sauce/flavor (and I'm not overly fond of lemon), but beyond that, the Breakers is beautiful and... More

We went here for the first time for a lunch with friends. The food was fresh and delicious and reasonably priced. The atmosphere was relaxing and has great views. The service was friendly and prompt. We will definitely be back again.

We had a great table with a view of the ocean! The food was very good. The only caution is that this is a big catering place so try to go when there isn't a large event!

Dinner on Wednesday overlooking the ocean. We enjoyed tasty veal and pasta dishes served in an attractive main dining area with sandy-gilded oyster-decor chairs. Pleasant staff. Returned Thursday for early evening cocktails on the spacious wrap-around porch as the daylight faded. Piano music available inside but small bar area, 4 tables.
