I thought the Caesar Salad was wonderful but charging $12 dollars for just 2 shrimp is rather outrageous. It should be at least 3 shrimp for that amount of money!!!

The noise level was extremely high. There were two very loud drunken tables that ruined the evening not just for my table but also the tables surrounding us. The ambiance, food and service was excellent, but we will not be back due to an unruly, drunk, loud, and obnoxious crowd.

For being a restaurant down the Jersey shore seafood choices was very limited. Linguine with spicy clam lacked flavor. Salmon tartare was mediocre.

LOVED Coming here. The mango margs and bloody marys were awesome. Also loved the shrimp cocktail and burrata. The quality of the lobster for the lobster roll was good but the raspberry mayo was a little strange.

Amazing! Based on some of the negative reviews, we almost didn't go. We arrived early for our reservation and were quickly accommodated, despite being very busy. Service was perfectly friendly and attentive without being overwhelming or intrusive. We ordered salads that were huge and delicious. (The salad alone would have been enough for me). The pasta was al dente delicious and the portion, while not large, was not at all small, as indicated in prior reviews. The entrees looked huge.
My only complaint is noise level - super loud.
So happy we didn't skip it. A delicious and memorable meal!

Food is quite good and consistent, but the wait staff though very friendly is struggling to be competent and the noise level in the sun room is much too high with one table of four, three tables of two and Frank Sinatra blasting from the speakers.

The food overall was really good. The calamari was the best, as was the tri-color salad. The entree veal parmigiana was good, as the sauce and preparation was done very professionally, with the appropriate selection for spices. Unfortunately the veal was too tough. The service staff was very helpful, considerate, and welcoming.

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely diner yesterday evening. The setting is very nice just across from the beach in a charming older hotel. Service was excellent - responsive but not overbearing. I ordered a Caesar Salad to start and the seafood risotto for my main dish. My wife also orders a salad and grilled tuna. The food was delicious and the portions very generous. A perfect choice for low key, charming Spring Lake
