Food was very good however service was rushed. Salad and main course come out within 10 minutes of each another. We left in less than one hour. Not what we were looking for on a Saturday evening
Although the food was good will NOT return. This is not first time we had issues with the service.

Blend has always been an enjoyable dining experience and continues to be the same. The food was exceptionally prepared, the service by Darron was top shelf, the hostess pleasant and wanting to satisfy, and just an fine dining time. Keep up the excellent performance.

This is truly a great neighborhood restaurant that serves great food. There is a nice pulse of young people too. It is casual and comfortable. The staff is very attentive and the presentation of the food is very nice as well. The menu has a very varied selection of dinner entrees as well as appetizers. The crabcakes were my favorite.

So glad we had the chance to try this restaurant. As many other stated the restaurant is very noisy, however I feel it means that people were talking and having a great time. We started with the special chicken and waffles. They were amazing, with pieces of slab bacon, sauces and pickled jalepenos. We also had the Chicken Rollatini and Delmonico Steak. Both were very good. The standout dessert was the doughnuts. With a slight hint of salt they were delicious. Our server Jean, was excellent. Thanks for making it a wonderful date night!

Very good meal — best we’ve had down the shore for locally sustainable & fresh eats. Its not common with shore restaurants.

Service was fantastic, kind, pleasant & helpful. Look forward to dining at BLEND again.

Excellent but pricy crabcakes for entree. Food delivered too quick felt rushed. First table for two used outdoor wire chars indoors so we waited for another indoor table with wood chairs

This place was jumping (as in frantic) on the Saturday of Labor Day Weekend. The crab cake and tuna tacos appetizers were both very good and the grilled tuna special was excellent. The place was very loud. We sat on metal (uncomfortable) patio chairs around small outdoor bistro tables that were placed just inside the door to maximize seating area.

Blend was an unknown to us. I was making the restaurant choice for four of us on Labor Day weekend. Well! Location, ambiance and food all surprised and delighted us. Having the owners there and fully engaged and having a great wait staff makes such a difference. The chef knows his crowd and knows his food. How many times have I heard that a restaurant's crab cakes are the best only to be disappointed. These are wonderful. We are so happy to hear that Blend on Main is open year round. A discovery.

Blend is a great place to go to for just about any occasion. Two weeks ago I held a bridal shower there and everyone raved about how great the food and service was. Went again this past Saturday because I wanted to have a nice meal with friends and I knew I could count on Blend.

We’re staying in Point Pleasant for the week but decided to try Blend on Main in nearby Manasquan. We’re so glad we did! The summer Wednesdays Lobsterpalooza is what drew us in but we would go back any day of the week! We had great appetizers, and the basket of warm pretzel rolls was delicious, especially with the raspberry mustard! Three of us ordered the Lobster Dinner - the lobsters were sweet and cooked to perfection and the potato croquettes were delicious. The NY strip steak and Amish chicken also got rave reviews. Desserts were great (peach cobbler, 1950's ice cream sundae) and our waiter, Darren, was terrific.

I like Blend a lot. The food is always very good and it is a convenient spot for us. The only problem I have is the noise level. If it is fairly full the noise level is too high. It is carpeted which you would think would help, but maybe they need some panels suspended from the ceiling to assist with the noise.

We think we experienced an off night for Blend on Main. The food was so/so and the diners who joined us thought it must have been a substitute chef as we were all looking forward to something better. We have enjoyed Blend on Main several times and we will not let one night deter us from trying again.

We were a party of four. I ordered the whole branzino which was presented in an odd way, with too much fennel and sliced lemons & limes smothering the fish to the point where I had to work to find it! It was all good but very poor presentation. The rest of our party said their big chops and shrimp/scallop risotto were delicious. Service was much improved over past experience here but the noise level made conversation difficult. I know this high noise level is a thing these days but not for me. I prefer a calm quiet dining environment.

Our family of four each ordered an entree and none of us wanted to be done. We wanted the moment of enjoying our meal to last forever! The serving sizes were perfect. The food was so delicious and full of taste. Everything was cooked to perfection. We all finished our entire meal including our 11 year old daughter who eats like a bird.

Our server, Tyler was outstanding. The food and the smaller room were great. The negative——a young man came in wearing a tee shirt and gym shorts. His date had on sweat pants. This dress is unacceptable at any decent upscale restaurant. Change your dress policy.

Disappointed. The steaks were subpar and not cooked properly. Skirt steak was over done (almost impossible to do when its sous vide by a professional chef) and the ribeye had way too much fat for $39. BYOB is the best part of the restaurant the fake flowers definitely were not. Have not been to Manasquan for dinner in 20 years probably should have made it 21.

Dining while on vacation in Spring Lake. We sat in the side room not the main dining room. That was great and quiet.
The main dining room was very loud.
Food was very good.

Try the Asian calamari - it’s large enough to share among two to three people. The cab cakes were wonderful and the shrimp it’s paperdelle was great although it lacked much eggplant.

We have visited Blend on Main, several times since it opened. We always enjoyed the experience. It has an interesting menu with something for everyone. BYOB keeps the cost down. A great place to dine when in Manasquan.
