Walked in with a party of 12 at 5:20pm and were finally seated at 7 pm. Had we not been there to celebrate a birthday we would have left! Had been told when we arrived that there was 45 minute wait. With 4 children in our party after the hour wait I approached the podium to asked how much longer we would wait only to be told that the table we would be seated at, the party was finished, but talking. What??? We were assigned a table from the door? One would think that you would seat people as others finish! Tables in this restaurant are commonly moved together to accommodate large parties! The second time I asked about being seated I asked if we could split our party up so we would be seated and I was told, "No because you would have another hour wait!" After waiting for over an hour she was going to put us at the bottom of the list! So....we waited.....as we waited we observed some couples walking in the front door being seated immediately while others stood and waited. It appeared that regulars are seated on arrival. Another couple stood waiting for an hour as others walked in the door and were seated quickly. I can't understand this as they do not take reservations. This is the second time in a year that the hostess has been rude. Won't be back, as there are other fine restaurants in OCNJ where everyone is treated fairly. Thankfully, our waitress was sweet and amazing and the food was good. Regardless, beware of this restaurant if you are not a regular!
