We have eaten here every year for the past couple of years. I always get the Mussels- they are very good! We enjoy the open restaurant and the views of the ocean and of Lucy the Elephant. We have also eaten at the other part of the restaurant which has a smaller casual menu.

It's by the beach and in the shadow of Lucy. It is a really fun environment with good food and drinks. We had a great waitress, Kristy. The menu is varied and the prices are reasonable. They offer valet parking which is important as parking in the area is often hard to find. Go, have fun and enjoy some great food.

We spend part of our year at the Jersey Shore and have been to the Greenhouse many times. There are really three locations in one at this restaurant. On the bottom level, there is a pub like venue which is very casual. There is also an outside deck that is open from late spring to fall that is also casual. Finally, there is a fine dining area on the second floor that is exceptional. The bartender, Kenny, has been there for years and provides superior service. There is a bar menu which is excellent - I totally recommend the Italian sliders - mozzarella cheese, eggplant and veal cutlet with a great marinara. You get two sliders with tortellini in a blush sauce.

The regular menu is phenomenal. I recommend any of the veal dishes as well as my favorite, pappardelle bolognese.

You can't go wrong here no matter what you are looking for. The owner, Lou, takes great pride in his restaurant and it shows.
