Best grilled cheese and Jersey tomato sandwich I could have wished for, at lunch yesterday. Gentle breeze at the porch table, view of the Atlantic...doesn't get much better! My companions enjoyed the ham, Brie and apple sandwich and the chicken and avocado wrap. Homemade blue corn chips accompany most sandwiches, and they are warm and tasty! Attentive service completes the... More

Had Sunday breakfast on the porch overlooking the beach. View was wonderful, food was average, service was average but grumpy, prices were, surprisingly, not bad.

I found breakfast to be very good and reasonable price... Lunch also was very good within a reasonable price.. However with kids not recommended due to a limited dinner menu. A little pricey not much food.

Food was wonderful and great service. It was a nice evening so we ate out on the porch. The restaurant is in the Grand Victorian Hotel across the street from the ocean. Great atmosphere. They had live music by the entranceway and close to where we were sitting - two guys playing guitar. It was a really nice touch. Sometimes... More

The Black Trumpet proved to be a perfect setting for a mini-reunion of five college classmates and spouses on a picture perfect day. The menu includes a $15.95 four-course lunch as well as $6.00 Bloody Marys, Minosas and glasses of house wine. Service by Shannon was attentive and all enjoyed a leisurely lunch. The chocolate cannoli dessert was delectable.

After wanting to try the Black Trumpet for some time, we enjoyed Mother's Day dinner here. The Sunday prix fixe menu included salad, choice of entrée and choice of dessert. We were skeptical about the VERY reasonable price of the menu, but were delighted with the meal! There was a fairly large group of us, and everyone was pleased with... More

The food is delicious, and there are complete lunch entree specials (including salad and dessert), in addition to the regular menu. The waiters are extremely attentive, polite and friendly. I would definitely return to this restaurant, which is directly across the street from the Atlantic Ocean, in beautiful Spring Lake, NJ.
