Nice Evening with Friends
We went to the Barge for 2 reasons:a birthday celebration and to check out the restaurant's renovations after Storm Sandy. They are still under construction outside but the inside now has big beautiful windows to look out on the Perth Amboy marina. We all ordered seafood meals which were very tasty and came with a generous garden salad and a choice of potatoe. The desserts were also excellent. We were not rushed and had a wonderful evening together. We definately will be going back again soon.

A Fine Seafood Dining Experience
We all enjoyed our dining experience at The Barge. The atmosphere was warm and friendly. The staff was personable and attentive. The food was/is outstanding. We intend to come back because of the food, surroundings, ambiance (and, I want ambiance!) I felt as if we were in a cozy New York restaurant.

The Barge is the place to go if you want great seafood at a reasonable price. The drawbacks: it gtes a little cramped and noisy when full, so go early. Also if you're looking to flirt with an attractive young waitress, this isn't your place.

Saturday at the Barge
We ove this place and they have fixed it up since Hurricane Sandy. The seafood is always fresh and you can't beat the view of the boats. The prices are very reasonable.

Father's Day dinner
This was my first time here and I was impressed with the quality of the food, everything we ordered was freshly made. We ordered calamari and raw clams; calamari was the best I have ever had, not chewy at all and cooked to perfection. The clams were so fresh and clean.
The actual entree could improve in portion size, but nonetheless was delicious and cocked and seasoned well.
Some desserts were home made and a must try!
No concerns regarding the food.
On the plus side, the ambiance was pleasant and not loud even when many families were there. Of course there is a nice vie, which is probably better at night.
To resume, I will definitely recommend this place and will visit again.

A Perth Amboy gem
Enjoyed the relaxed feeling at this restuarant. The soft shell crabs were great. Their homemade sangria completed the meal.

We had a wonderful experience
There's isn't anything better than delicious seafood near the water and that's just what we got at the Barge. The service was exceptional and the food was delicious. The online coupon was a great way to get us into the door. This may be our GO-TO restaurant when we come visiting with our daughter who lives in the neighborhood.

Oldie, but goodie
My family have been Barge customers for years. We hope that they get the ourside area repaired, so we can hear Kurt Epps as we dine on weekends.

Although I made reservation through Open Table, upon arrival I was told they didn't have reservation. I started to pull out my copy and they found it on the computer. I think I was lucky there was a table available.

Consistently good, reliable seafood on the Perth Amboy waterfront. Back open after Sandy, patio awaits next year.

Out of a party for six, five of us had a different type of seafood(which was the main reason for going there).
Everyone enjoyed their meal and expressed how fresh their seafood was, from the flounder, stuffed flounder to
the shrimp. Hats off the chef GREAT JOB!

If you eat nothing else, try the oysters--- raw or fried.

Very good, but not quite excellent
I recently visited The Barge for my mother's birthday dinner. The lobster was outstanding as was the Manhattan Clam Chowder. The service was top-notch. I never had to search for the waiter. However, the one major problem is the lack of space. There are many too tables in the main dining room and I felt a bit cramped. I had to walk sideways at times to get to my table.

A great evening
A busy, energetic place, but we had a very relaxed meal. The food was delicious, the service amazing. Our server assisted with allergies and special requests flawlessly. Her reccomendations spot on. It was as if she new what we wanted/needed before the need to ask! I would go back just for the cheesecake!

From a time when a restaurant was simple very good food at excellent prices. Coupons available on line. Friendly staff make this a monthly stop.

The food at The Barge was excellent. The service was also excellent. Views of the water made this a special meal. My only complaint is that it is extremely crowded and noisy.
