Great table overlooking the waterfront. Good cocktails. Food was excellent, very fresh. Service was very good until the dining room got more busy. But overall another great meal at this fine Highlands, NJ establishment.

Went for Fathers Day, sat down promptly at 5:00 but service was slow.. no doubt caused by the lack of labor that is affecting all restaurants. Our server was fine but overworked as he served and bussed the table as well.. been here before pre pandemic and service always perfect.. food was good and prices Increased somewhat reflecting increased food costs.. we love Bahrs..

I was disappointed that I tried to add two people to my reservation the Friday before Father’s Day in the morning, and they said it was absolutely impossible. I try to get in on Father’s Day Sunday morning, they said no again, then they called me back half an hour later saying they could work something out, however my son and his wife were already at the beach.I called back and let them know thank you anyway but it was too late, when we got to the restaurant there was a table large enough to accommodate all five of us anyway and plenty of empty tables were guessing that arrived yet.

We were served bad fish at a seafood restaurant! None of the food was restaurant quality. The place could use a facelift as could the menu.

Waitress with pink eye shadow never gave her name. Never got Cole slaw with meals.
Food runner brought out filet mignon no steak knife and when I asked for a steak knife he put it in front of my toddler.
Food was delicious and reason for visit with a good friend.

Food was great, service was Very slow. Our waitress was nice but we waited 20 minutes to get our drink order yet the table behind us got drinks taken within a minute of sitting. Then we needed drink refills but our waitress was nowhere to be found for almost a half an hour.

Nice place I was there Friday for lunch with my friends for the first time they seems unorganized. Wanted to sit out side and the host made us wait for 15 minutes before telling us it was a 45 minutes wait. The manager was telling her how to do her job in front of us, don’t know what he told her that she seems she wanted to cry. Unprofessional. Food took forever to come out the waitress forgot to bring us our appetizers. I probably give it an other chance to go back because of the atmosphere.

We had the opportunity to have lunch outside which was very enjoyable because it was
such a perfect day and there was a lot of boat activity. Our server was excellent, and the food was good. I would recommend this restaurant for an authentic shore experience.

Celebrated my Mom's Birthday with 5 of us. Sat inside overlooking the River. Service was great, servers were kind and friendly. Food and drinks came quick, and food was incredible. Definitely recommend the crab cakes or the stuffed shrimp... and upgrade to the loaded potato! For desert, the cobbler was amazing!!

Bahrs continues to be a regular visit for us. We love the food, ambiance, service and location. But there is one new wrinkle in the last visit.

We have been going to Bahrs for many years. One of it's most recognized items is the biscuits and coleslaw they always give you after you place your order. Now we're told as a cost saving measure and that people aren't eating it they stopped the coleslaw from being served. But, if you want it they can give you it for only an extra $1.25! Seriuosly?

Look, Bahrs is not an inexpensive place. A meal for 2 with drinks, appetizer and main course can easily be over $200. If the concern that people are not eating the coleslaw then ask them if they want it. But to stop serving it and if you do want it then to charge you for it is just a cheap way to get a few dollars. Fortunately our server, who was very good, said he would get us the coleslaw no charge.

Will we stop going? No, but it's just makes a nice night out at a great place look cheap and chintzy.

We arrived early to sit at the bar and have a couple drinks before dinner. Outside bar was packed with beachgoers so we went to the inside bar. Had a couple drinks and realized my draft pint was $8.75. To much for me. Sat for dinner, after over an hour our meals came out. Dinner was overcooked and flavor less. For the price expectations were not met. Will not be going back, sorry!

When we got there we had reservations at 845 and there was no table. Then we sat at the bar bc we were starving the waiter acknowledge us and then took like 20 min to hand us menus and as she handed us the menu she expected us to know what we wanted to drink.. The hostess saw i was uncomfortable and told me I have another table come with me. We went and sure i felt better but jeez my waiter sucked.. She kept making smart remarks and everything just went down hill from there.. the food was horrible calamaris cold my bun less burger that i asked to be put in lettuce just came plain on the plate with a couple of fries.. Have u ever had over cooked lobster tail lol we thats what i got .. A piece of tail that looked like it had been sitting in the grill for the last 4 hours. Never ever am I coming again.. On top of all this the bill was nearly 200 for a over cook 3oz lobster tail and 8oz filet and calamaris and 2 drinks.. horrible

Food was great. Something must have happened with our order because it took a long time. Tables had been seated after us and left before we had our main course. Waitress corrected it with the bill. It was a date so we weren’t in a rush

I love this restaurant, however, last night was a bit chaotic. We waited almost 2 hours for our dinner (our reservations were for 7:30pm). Our server was fantastic, followed up with us, and apologized constantly. The bus boys cleared those table so efficiently after every meal. Everyone from a bus boy to a server would say how are you, etc…..However, whoever was the floor manager in a white polo shirt with the ego of a cheap suit, made it seem like it was our problem we had to wait 2 hours for a meal. We plan on going back, and hoping for a different outcome.

Always a good place to have seafood and enjoy looking at the water. Parking was very difficult and it was very crowded, but, to be expected on a warm summer night.

Pros: Ambience was great, server Donna was great and attentive. Prices were comparable.

Con: Ordered steak medium and comes back well done. Sent back. We get the second steak and comes back rare. Our server takes the steak back for the second time. Third time it was served to us, it was the same piece of steak re-fired, some parts were now well done, some parts medium and some still rare. For the price you pay for a surf and turf, you'd want it cooked the way you want it. We love trying local places. Its our first time here but sadly, we won't be coming back.
