Great good, service, vibe and Christmas decorations. We love BR and will be back!
The Bonney has become one of our staples for both dinner and drinks. They have a great happy hour menu for snacks and drinks. Always very fresh seafood and the fish and chips are absolutely the best! Kim, and the entire staff, are always very friendly and accommodating. Needless to say, you can’t go wrong at The Bonney Read. Highly recommended!
Fish Sammy was too messy and drenched in tartar sauce. Drinks great. Fries crispy.
Great spot for outstanding food, fun ambiance and solid beer selection.
First visit. Very pleased! Server was outstanding! Definitely would go back again!
Kind of standard 'seafood joint by the shore', the food is just ok and overpriced. The staff was great, beer was good. Nothing special, I'll never go back.
We loved our waitress Isabel and the food was sooo delicious!!
Our waiter Jackson was great, friendly.
He didn’t rush us and was patient. Cocktails were good, I had a Cosmo and my husband had a Manhattan both excellent choices. Seafood very fresh and would recommend the oysters and swordfish
Was the first time there! Everything was delicious! Portions good size. Will return!
Always a great meal.
This was our first visit to Bonney Read. We Enjoy dining in Asbury. We loved the menu and choices available before making our reservation. B R did not disappoint! All four of us really enjoyed our meal. The oysters on the half shell were fresh clean and cold. The Caesar salad was wonderful and large enough for all to share. Crab Cakes, Broiled Flounder, Fish and chips (Old Bay fries on request) we’re all so fresh and delicious! Our server helped make our visit special with her friendly professional and knowledgeable attention!
Overall good. Credit card admin charge was strange for a fairly big establishment.
Food and service was impeccable!!
Our waitress was amazing and the food was excellent!
Great food and great service
The best raw bar Ann’s seafood! My favorite place.
Bonny Read was on the mark. The server Isabella rocked and knew the menu inside and out. The seafood was fresher than fresh. The chef/owner Avery came to the table for a little chat and some key lime pie.....Outstanding day!!!!
I have been many times. Service was the best ever this time. Great, fresh seafood. Great cocktails. Just an easy place
Good meal. Special was just ok. Lobster app and oysters were incredible. Mani magi - not so much.
Great food and really nice staff
Great food! Servers were fabulous! Been there many times! A favorite of mine!
Great meal - food was fantastic- server was not as attentive but she may have had a lot of tables assigned to her
Our new go to restaurant for sea food. The food and service were fantastic.
Restaurant was 85% EMPTY, but we waited over 20 minutes for waitress to take our drink order after we were seated, then she rushed us into ordering our meal as soon as she brought the drinks. Service was obviously poor, food was mediocre. Would not recommend - don't anticipate ever eating there again.
Melissa was friendly and professional as our server. The New England clam chowder, clams casino were nice starters. The Salmon with green salad and Lobster roll were very tasty. Nice wine list and a wide range of rum to choose from.
Food was ok, nothing special . Dining room has nice views of downtown Asbury Park
Great lobster roll. Micaela was delightful! Best Bloody Mary!
Great food, especially the seafood! My husband said his burger was overcooked, but he enjoyed it anyway. Great drinks and ambiance!
Sat outside with another couple - the Asbury crowd shuffled by , but i felt covid safe!
People at with their friends and Pooches which was sort of fun ( typical for the area)
We all had different fish dishes which were well prepared and everyone liked what they ordered.
We will go back before its too cold to eat outside!
Appetizers came out quickly and the New England clam chowder was amazing. Everyone liked their food. Is this off the charts high end dining? Absolutely not but it is good for what the place is. A cool spot in downtown Asbury. It is super loud so keep that in mind when booking. Service was attentive as well. I vowed after the last time I ate here to never come back but glad I did - they redeemed themselves in a big way!
Slow service; mediocre food; excellent Bloody Mary!
Such an enjoyable night at Bonny Reade! We shared clams on the half shell, served perfectly chilled over shaved ice ; wonderfully seasoned clams casino; and a kettle of the sweetest snow crab legs ever. Our food was served at a perfect pace by super personable and attentive James. Our dinner was exactly the experience we were looking forward to during our Asbury Park getaway!
Great experience, hostess was able to seat us outside what had was great. Food had changed since our last visit but was still good. St. Elmo’s fire cocktail was very good!
Beautiful and hip space and decor. Fantastic seafood and excellent service ! One of the best in Asbury !!
The food was absolutely delicious! The seafood was fresh and well cooked. They had many of the classics you'd expect, but each dish had a twist to it that put it over the top. The cocktail were also mixed well.
Food was delicious! Everything was very fresh. We had oysters and the lobster appetizers. Clam chowder soup, lobster roll and mahi sandwich. With the exception of the mahi sandwich all was excellent (a little too much bread so hard to taste the fish) and and the fries were ok- nothing special.
This used to be one of my favorite places to go and I think it still could be but it was not this day. No complaints about the service. The drinks were excellent as usual and the appetizers were very good. The “fresh catch” entree was a big disappointment 😝. I don’t know that this is the case but the Maui looked and tasted like it came right out of a Costco bag. Don’t say it’s fresh catch if it’s not. I will try again and hope it’s better next time.
We had a lovely date night at Bonney Read - our dinner was really delicious and so were the drinks. Our service was wonderful and we left feeling very satisfied!
Delicious food, friendly staff and great atmosphere and music
