“Good place and open at night.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

As soon as the cruise tourists are gone, most places close for the night. So getting dinner at the boardwalk isn't that easy. Luckily Taloula Mango's was still open. We have had a drink here and some pizza and it is quite a good place. There is a guy across the boardwalk that plays reggea music and you have a good view of the ocean. The pizza's were good and we had to wait a normal time for it. Some of the staff was not very attentive, they were to busy chatting or playing on their phone, but it didn't bother me as some others were attentive.
A nice place for a meal or drink.

“Very pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

We were in Phillipsburg on Sunday afternoon and many places we're already closed. We weren't expecting blue b to be very good since it is located right on the touristy cruise ship main street. It was a pleasant surprise and one of our best lunches during our visit. Loved the curry shrimp and the jerk chicken

“Thought it would be better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

We were here on a cruiseship of 1800 bikers and our tour hosts had planned for this to be one of the recommended stops and visited in advance so that the bar would be prepared. Well, they weren't. Beer specials were good at $5 dollars a bucket of 5 but all along the beach there were better specials that included the chairs and umbrellas as well. Food was average and service was slow so we wouund up walking the boardwalk and finding faster service. Location is perfect though to be able to rest on the beach and wade in the beautiful water. This might be worth a try when not so many people are around but seeing as this is the closest beach to the cruise ships, you would think they would be busy on all days ships are in port.

Hi,
I'm sorry you did not have our full experience on the day you visited us. The day you came with High Seas Rally we were not expecting that many people. From what we saw in the HSR Newsletter Sunset Beach Bar was heavily promoted and transportation to that bar was provided from the ship. So we figured most of the HSR patrons would go there. From what we understand the beach at Sunset was eroded on that day and it may for a quick visit. So we ended up with many many more than we expected and as you noticed we were slammed. All our 200 seats were taken as well as the bar on the beach. We got many compliments on our specials (which were discussed and approved by the HSR organizers) that day as well as the entertainment. Once gain sorry we could not make you happier but give us another chance when you come back. Thanks, Norman & Su Wathey, Owners

“Great Food and view of the beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013

Walking down the boardwalk and chose the restaurant by the name and the fact it had free WiFi with purchase. We were very surprised at the quality of the food and service of the restaurant. The slushy drinks were fantastic. Highly recommend the Jerk Chicken or the ribs. The upstairs bar has a great view of the beach.
