Sometimes, you don't feel like dressing up when you're hungry. Sometimes, you just want to graze on bites of this and that, and share small plates while you sip a cocktail or wine, and chat.

The great thing about Zane's is that it's casual, but really very nice. It feels upscale beachy without being posh or snooty. A major factor in this for us is their No Corkage Fee policy. Some restaurants seem to manifest attitude via their servers when you bring your own. We've never, ever experienced that at Zane's, bringing our own wine numerous times. (We do, however, make it a point to add to the gratuity, calculating the tip as though we DID purchase the wine, in our own acknowledgment that the server SHOULD be recognized for the extra service to us.)

We've thoroughly enjoyed the complimentary dips with freshly baked, to-die-for bread to start out each meal - FREE, and worth a trip to the restaurant alone. We've had the calamari (outstanding) and light, fresh ahi appetizer, as well. The Caesar salad is delicious, but the dressing may be a bit heavy for some tastes. I loved the arugula salad. The pizza with arugula, pesto, goat cheese and pine nuts is delicious, too.

Favorite entree is the Chicken Piccata - perfectly balanced sauce - classic. Also outstanding: any of the raviolis, the grilled salmon, and the skirt steak. This place really does offer something for everyone (including burgers, though we've never ordered them.)

Give Zane's a try: it will work for families earlier in the evening, for date night, or for a group celebrating at the beach - and bring your own wine and save a bundle.

We went to Zane's on a Monday night for Happy Hour - the HH menu has great prices and serving sizes. We had the mini Ahi Tartare, which was really delicious!

Everything we ordered was just great! Cioppino (better than my Sicilian grandma's - sorry, Nana), broccolini cooked to perfection, and steamed clams with broth that makes you want to pick up the bowl and drink every last drop.

The breads are great, too. The servers and greeters were friendly and quick to make sure you were satisfied.

Highly recommend this place and will definitely go back when we are in town again.

We had the bone in rib eye and a NY Strib, and both was delicious. You get to choose 2 side dishes, and they are also great. Try the chocolate cake, it is the best we ever had! Happy hour on house cab, one bottle 19$ between 5-7.

Perfect location - close to the pier, but not too close to stay away from the craziness.

They have great happy hour deals everyday. You can do BYO up to two bottles for free. Love their focaccia bread + 3 dipping, and NY strip steak is awesome. I always get friendly service from servers. Highly recommended.
