Awful!! Walked out. Was here before and had great service and the waitress was awful. No knowledge of the menu or anything. No silverware. No salad no apps. Waited 45 minutes. Questioned it twice and then we left. Never will return. And it’s sad because it used to be one of our favs!

It was ok. There was hardly anyone in the place which was a shame for the singer/guitarist who was playing. Live music was quite nice and quite good, just couldn't sit outside due to it being too chilly. Steak had to go back, was overcooked. Hate to say but if you are going to make an error, undercook so that you don't have to start over & have the patron wait forever. Ended up eating half my date's dinner and taking mine home which wasn't the point. Still wondering why it was such a slow night. May try again, who knows. Laura, the server was attentive & friendly.

One of the worst dining experiences EVER. A friend joined us for dinner - - she ordered a frozen drink and was told the frozen ice maker was broken. She then ordered the three course meal. When they brought her entree it was not what she ordered (baked 1/2 chicken); server took it back to kitchen. 10 minutes later a manager(?) came back and said they didn't have the item she ordered on their menu. It was on the menu, and server was not aware they don't serve baked chicken any more. She settled for chicken piccata (which was not good/tough). And no surprise -- the third course (dessert) which she ordered up front (brownie) was not available. Very poor dining/service experience. Waitress was pleasant and in an awkward position. One of the few restaurants that takes Open Table reservations in Wildwoods - - now I know why. We will never go back.

Had to give some type of rating to be able to write this review. Very disappointed in this restaurant. I made a reservation for brunch at 11 am on Sunday. Only to find out that they don’t open until 12. There should not be time slots available for reservations if the restaurant isn’t even open. And there was no one at the restaurant when we tried to call. Not sure I’ll be eating here ever.

Very disappointing, menu limited and then not what is described. Ordered the Get 3 Deal; salad good, dinner ~ ordered half a chicken got a dried out 3 or 4 oz boneless chicken breast with a couple of capers on it, cold potatoes and poorly sautéed spinach, brownie was ok, but over all if you go there just order a burger as that was the best looking thing at the table, although overcooked.
The server was very personable, but had limited time to take care of us. If your hungry and no other place is open, this will fill the void, otherwise look elsewhere.

I couldn't score it any higher and that makes me sad. The hash browns were cold. The $17 lobster omelette had very little lobster in it and it was just okay. The butter came out for the toast very cold and the toast was in hot so it was just overall average for brunch. What I did like was the Bloody Mary bar was amazing and the mimosas or awesome as well! I would definitely recommend their cocktails but the food for me was just okay.

When the best thing you can say about a restaurant is that your server was okay, you know you should avoid the establishment at all costs. We made a reservation for 8PM thru Open Table. Probably waited 20 minutes to be seated. Then waited another 5 for the server to appear. Place was super busy given all that was happening that weekend. After drinks were ordered and served, we finally were ready to order. Instead of a list of specials, your server tells you what they're out of...and unfortunately, it was a lot. Not only were they out of items before we ordered, after we ordered, our server had to come back twice to get substitute orders for things that they also ran out of since we gave her our order. Shame on me as this was not our first negative experience here. We knew going in they would be out of something. But it will be our last visit here. We made a group pact never to come back for dinner. And that really tells you all you need to know. Fine for drinks and outside seating, but the management needs to improve. It's a limited menu to begin with, so a restaurant like this should never run out of things like salmon, oysters and crab meat, just to name a few of the "we're out of" items.

We came here for my birthday this past Saturday. We had a reservation but we're still seated late at a table that had been open since we had shown up. We have had dinner here previously a few years ago but after this dinner we will not be returning. The food was subpar and we had to remind them of things that were missing in the table's order each time a round of food came out. The waitress was nice but seemed overwhelmed because she rarely came over to check on us or ask if we needed more drinks. It was a very disappointing meal.

Don't waist your time and money. Overpriced and poor food. Prime rib requested as medium rare came gray and the waitress twice said that's all they 'are allowed to do.' It was 6 p.m. Friday night yet the they were out of ribs. Middle of summer at the beach?!? Fish was soggy; clam flatbread missing a lot of clams.
Seasonal veggie -- spinach was very good. Waitress was very friendly but could not help. No manager in site. Men's restroom was OFFENSIVE: standing at the urinal with women in thong bikini's with their backside facing the man. Really!??! And it was messy, dirty floor.
In a nutshell, maybe only for a beer and burger. NOTHING ELSE.

The lobster roll is excellent. It's nice to sit outside, eat and listen to the live music. It's just loud enough so you can still talk and hear each other at the table. Good martini's!

It was very loud. The waitress was super busy and it a long time to get our order. The first Pepsi was flat and the second one wasn't much better. The prime rib came out and it was like shoe leather. The waitress got me a new one that was better. The kids portion of noodles was tiny and came out cold and the meatball was like ice. My husband had a burger that was "OK". The only thing that made it worth going to was the $4 glass of wine. It's early in the season so maybe it will improve as they get more experience.

First time for brunch at the Northend. Memorial Weekend - 10:30-11:00a.m. Busy and loud. Service was very slow. Food was served on the not-so-warm side but it was tasty. Crab cake benedict had a crab cakes (2) the size of a McNugget and was good just not hot. The sausages were not hot. During brunch we ordered another round of cocktails which came when our meal was over. The waitress did apologize for the slow service. Not sure if I'd return as I like my food served "hot". It seemed obvious that our entrees were sitting waiting to be served for awhile. For $60+ I'd more than likely not return for brunch.

Unfortunately, this was not a positive experience. Service was awful. The food was mediocre at best. My husband arrived a little bit late and was never even asked if he wanted to order something - even after he asked for something to drink and our food was delivered. Our drinks were never refilled. Out of everything we ordered, the chicken fingers my daughter had good though. Our bill was pretty expensive for 3 kids meals (2 pasta and 1 chicken fingers) and pizza. We actually paid our bill and walked down the street for my husband to have dinner and then we ordered dessert there. Also, some items on the online menu were not on the actual menu. Unfortunately, one of those items was something that we wanted to order as our meal. But I understand that those things do happen. It was just very disappointing overall. I could see this being a good place to get drinks, but I won't be back with my family for dinner any time soon.

North End American Grill advertised that it was part of Wildwood Restaurant Week. We found out after being seated that they were not. So we ordered off the menu, and bc it POURED rain and we were soaked and the air condition was on high and we were freezing, we ordered soup, along with drinks & an entree. The soup never came. When we asked for it, the waitress said, "oh I never put it in, do you still want it?"
Yes, yes we do. They were out of tuna, so I ordered crab cakes, mostly filler. Salad was good though.
