A nice environment with a good bar and decent but not great food. It's location at the lower end of Wildwood Crest and Diamond Beach attracts a lot of local walk in traffic and it is a slightly above average for a neighborhood tavern. But I think the food is better at some of the taverns that are near the... More

My husband and I have a place in the Crest and when we're down there, Saturday night is our Crest Tavern night (for over 10 seasons, that's a lotta Saturdays!). Yes, be prepared for a wait if you're dining in prime time since it's a small dining room with booths and tables, but we like to drink and dine at... More

4 of us stopped in for an early dinner to beat the crowds on a Monday night. The grouper rueben was fantastic, mussels in garlic sauce enough to share. The enforcer burger topped with egg, my friend really enjoyed. We all enjoyed the parmesan rosemary fries, a good size basket. I got to keep the signature glass from my blueberry... More

its my 25th year in a row going there and there is really not much to say but you have to try it. The food is great and abundant. The prices are very reasonable and the staff is friendly. What else can I say.

We go the the shore about 10 times a year and always include the Crest Tavern when it comes to a dining selection. At the Tavern,menu selections include typical pub food, meat and seafood entrees and some tasty seasonal and shore-like creations. The food is always fresh and delicious and the drinks are made to perfection with that little extra,... More

My granddaughter and I went to the Crest Tavern to grab something quick to eat for dinner before heading up to the Boardwalk. There was a line outside, but because we chose to sit in the front section, which is an enclosed porch with a small bar, we were able to be seated immediately. The menu offers good choices, the...

We were seated quickly in the air conditioning and had a very nice waitress. Our drinks were made well and dinner was served timely. I was expecting a little bit more food per person. He had the mahi-mahi and I had the crab cake sandwich. Tasty place that was getting busier when we left. We would come again, even with... More
