    My friend & I had a corn squash bisque soup & it was deelicious! For dinner I had Scottish salmon & it was just done perfect, moist yet crunchy on the outside with side dish of cubed baked or broiled potato which was done right blends well with another good portion of green salad & their home made dressing. Excellent.! I would definitely go back to try another dish.

    This was my first visit and for the most part I was very pleased. It was, however, very noisy but I will chalk that up to a very energetic Labor Day weekend crowd and I will look forward to my next opportunity to visit.

    Shipwreck Point Grill is a gem at the Jersey shore. We have dined here a few times this summer and have had an excellent meal every time. We have never had to wait longer than 10 minutes for our reservation.I had the Tuna which was excellent and my husband and one of our guests had scallops. We had a booth overlooking the Manasquan Inlet and could see the fishing boats going out for night fishing .

    Upon arrival I told the Maître d my party is going to the bar for a cocktail. After that I approached him to be seated & he smuggly said "and U R ?". The bartender was also rude to my wife when she complained her martini had ice in it & was not strained properly. Our waiter was the only bright spot of the night (not bad for a college kid). The food is so-so & very pricey, I guess it's get as much of these Benie's $ before Labor Day. The foie gras was very good but extremely small. I accidently knocked over a full Kettle & Tonic at table which was not replaced! What customer service! If U want to pay NYC price's & have $ to burn, make a reservation here! WILL NEVER GO BACK!!!!

    We enjoy this restaurant and thought our finicky friends would too. Food was outstanding. The server was nice put may have been new at the job...no salt....no forks.....little things like that. We had to ask for a lot that should have been there....milk for coffee. Thought since Sunday, there was valet parking (my fault) and it was a hassle and expensive. Meter did not want to take extra time.....bad location without valet. Would definitely go back but not on any weekend day. They are very nice and the food is excellent...definitely try it.

    Shipwreck Point delivers on all counts. The shelled two pound lobster is great for shell fish lovers. You can't go wrong with any of the steak choices. The only miss was the absence of parking service.

    I just cannot understand why this place has positive reviews. The service was poor at best. No bread until we asked for it. The portions are minuscule while the prices are high. The noise level was deafening. Don't plan on having a conversation. The food wasn't bad but the overall experience was awful so it didn't really matter.

    It took for ever for waitress to come over. We didn't even have menus so we were just sitting there for 20 minutes. My steak was tough and not the way filet mignon should be. Had to ask multiple times for another drink and at least a piece of bread which looks huge but is a half empty shell. Food not worth the $200 bill for 2 people and only 2 drinks and $6.00 diet coke. Also beyond bad service and so so food it is way to loud. Which noise I could over look if service and food were good but they weren't. We'll be sticking with Poached Pear Bistro!

    After looking forward for weeks to dinner at Shipwreck Point, it was a big let down. The fire in the kitchen and subsequent alarms didn't help but that would have been fine if everything else was up to par. We felt like the lost table in the middle of the restaurant while we watched people get served who came in long after we arrived. The filet part of the porterhouse as well as spinach was not edible. The lobster on the surf and turf was overcooked and chewy. The sauces (that you have to pay extra for) were watery and tasteless. The upside? Filet and Strip were perfectly prepared and delicious. We've never experienced this at SWP, hopefully just an off night.

    I chose this restaurant because it was close to the water & heard great things about the food. I had read reviews about the noise level but didn't take it seriously. The Noise is TERRIBLE. You can barely hear each other and if your waiter doesn't scream at you, you can't hear the specials. We had to ask the waiter to repeat himself a couple of times. The service was ok at best. Our waiter was unfortunately not as well-versed with the menu and I think he made some of it up. The food however made up the other problems. The popover & butter was a treat. Choose anything with a cream sauce, those are the better dishes. Dessert was said to be warm & actually cold & coffee was spoiled. They fixed the situation but still upsetting.

    Bartender ignored us because his friends were there. $60 special Tbone advertised as prime and 28 days dry aged was served gray, with bottled balsamic ribbons and hot but not grilled sliced supermarket tomatoes. And with baby arugula with no dressing and no seasoning, fresh from the bag. I know dry aged steak, and it wasn't. Maine oysters great, but why put a pile of raw julienned horseradish on the plate? Alacarte Brussels sprouts were mushy and not caramelized. Creamed spinach fresh but little cream and no seasoning. Young waiter was nice kid and seemed truly embarrassed by what he was serving. Great setting, lovely view of Squan Inlet, but way overpriced and lacking kitchen discipline. A shame.

    We had a group of 6. Half the group are extremely picky eaters. There was something for everyone on the menu and the food was delicious. I wish I would have known about the valet parking in advance. The Open Table confirmation said street parking, which was much more expensive than if we had used the restaurant's complimentary valet service.

    We had a recommendation from my cousin to go to this restaurant and honestly from the name of the restaurant I thought it would be a typical Pt Pleasant seafood joint. Upon arrival I was glad to see that they had valet parking especially because the area was quite crowded with all the restaurants being in close proximity to each other. Once we were seated we were greeted by our waiter Michael who made our dining experience a sheer delight. I forgot to mention that the restaurant was very nicely decorated like an upscale restaurant not like a typical shore restaurant. The food was fantastic and all in all we thoroughly enjoyed everything. This restarts is a very upscale fine dining experience.

    No other steakhouse down the NJ shore compares to the "Shipwreck Point". Everything is far above other Jersey shore restaurants. The cuts of steak are generous and the chef does an outstanding job of charring the final product. If you like steak go to this Best of the Best, "Shipwreck Point".

    Our group arrived at 6:30pm. The wine we chose was not available and the wait staff was unable to make any other recommendations due to lack of knowledge of the wine list (his own admission . We ordered a few appetizers and dinner. Everything arrived piecemeal and the dinners were not served until well after 9pm. The steaks were good, but the Caesar salad was tasteless and the ahi tuna (which was ordered "rare) was overcooked and seasoned like a steak ("Montreal Steak" seasoning). The chef had no knowledge of how to cook fresh tuna The noise level was beyond energetic. It was downright unbearable. We could not hear ourselves think....never mind have a conversation. We were all very disappointed. Sorry
