Reservation was made for "Oktoberfest" which was advertised on the Web Site.
We were seated quickly, and the wait person brought the regular menu. When I
asked for the Oktoberfest menu she said they ran out, HUH !! How do you run
out when the event is advertised!! This was a big disappointment since we were
looking forward to some traditional German fair. So we stayed with the regular menu.
Food was Good but very pricey for portion size. We are locals and enjoy many of our
local restaurants. I think most are trying to compete who can charge the highest
New York prices. I don't mind paying a reasonable price since we are on the Jersey
Shore, so the prices are a bit higher. But, the prices that are charged for portion
size is a bit much. The service however was excellent, Our young lady server was
on her game. Kept everything running perfect, they should clone her. Great personality
Not sure if we would go back. It was great when it was "Bay Point Inn"

The outdoor heater was a perk. The service was ok. The prices were too high.

Went here to enjoy the great water view on a sunny day. We ordered the hamburger platter and the crab cake burger. Both were cooked to perfection and delicious. Great cocktails.

Good food, great views, nice vibe. A local, upscale place that you don't need a special occasion to visit. In the summer, the bar scene is a happening spot and reservations are harder to get.

Food was decent but certainly not worth $250 for 4 people. We did have 6 drinks all together which did add to the bill but the food was okay, not great. I had heard great things about this place but was pretty disappointed in the food and service. Had the server switch to another one half way throughout the meal with no explanation. We had to ask for a soft drink 4 times before it came and was never asked how our food was after it was brought out. Had to track down a server bc there was no salt and pepper on the table.

Most restaurants in the area on the water have below average food and service. It is to be expected. But last year we enjoyed our trip to One Willow so we decided to return. This year we visited for our anniversary and left hungry. I hate to leave a bad review in covid times but my husband’s $16 soup was served cold and at $37 our crab cake entree was not even edible. We came home and ate the pizza we ordered for our kids. So sad for a date night out with a big bill.

Dined outside and the view is very relaxing. The setup is nicely done with 2 levels and even a covered area. Heaters available tableside when its chilly. Nice size bar with seating too. The food was really delicious. I had the tuna special and it was perfectly done. My guest had the scallops and they were wonderful. The service was excellent. Thank you Barbara B!! Will be back for sure!

The location is beautiful for this restaurant. The ambiance s ice with a good amount of seating outdoors. The restaurant used to have live music and has not had any this year. They should definitely consider have some live music again. The food is good . Portions are not large, but not small either. The bartenders seem a bit overwhelmed and were not consistent with how they made drinks. Overall. It’s a great spot to have a nice dinner

As is often the case with a restaurant that has a view, the food is fair, nothing special, not terrible, but not anything I would order again. I wouldn't go to this restaurant if it weren't on a lovely spot on the water. Service was good, atmosphere was lovely.

The price you pay is worth it! Get the date cake... amazing! Overall great experience & great service! The one bussers named Ryan is so sweet and made sure we had everything we needed! It was super cold out and he gave us 3 heaters throughout the evening!! I had some random lipstick on my glass and this wasn’t the first time but maybe they were busy weekend nights and couldn’t shine the glasses.... truly overall had a good time! The view is amazing!

The view is very nice but the food was average. Service was ok, but disturbed that no covid policies enforced. A couple and a young child without masks stood at an adjacent table and chatted to the couple at the table for 10 -15 minutes. Not one of the staff personnel stopped them, asked them to wear a mask or required them to sit down.

Food: The mussels are exceptional...you'll want to order a loaf of bread with them. Fried artichoke hearts are not only beautifully prepared they are de-lish! Get get 2 orders. I rarely eat fish. Mostly seared tuna. I'd say "trust me" but you don't know me...however I must say, I order the market special almost every time I'm there. My friends think I'm an impostor. Nick has converted me with his creative and delectable dishes. Burgers are fantastic too. Probably one of the best around.
Service: Impeccable. The staff goes out of their way to please.
View: Beautiful.

Terrible service, mediocre food and for a seafood restaurant the menu was very limited. The menu has a picture of a lobster yet they have no lobster aside from a stock lobster roll.

Very rude staff. Seated us, then moved us after seated to a table next to the bus station.

First off let me say that it was a beautiful restaurant by the ocean that being said you would think that they would have excellent food. The menu is very limited for dinner but even more limited for lunch which we did go for lunch. $70 later we walked out very dissatisfied my husband had the chicken sandwich what do you think normally a chicken sandwich would be made of breast of chicken no it was the cheapest part of the chicken which was the wing and it was heavily fried and breaded,horrible. Well going forward we can scratch this one off the list we won’t be back

This was our first and last experience at this wonderful restaurant. We came in for our reservations and had asked for the outdoor table. We were greeted by a young hostess who told us to wait by the bar about 10-15 minutes for a table outside. Then we had asked the hostess again for an outdoor veranda table, they had empty tables available but they were only used for the newly entered parties of people but not us. It was 45 minutes and we still didn’t have a table. Then we got offered a table right by the bar, that previous party had abandoned because they were cold. It became extremely windy and chilly, that was the reason we wanted to sit on the veranda, they had heaters there and some plastic covering. The hostess told us that they are expecting another party up there and they can’t sit us until one of the existing parties on the veranda had left. We did mention initially that this was our first experience and it was a birthday celebration. The hostess kept apologizing that she didn’t know when we would be seated. We became really frustrated and told her that we would not be continuing to wait. She kept apologizing and she hoped that next time would be better. What an insane thing to say! You ruin my birthday celebration and you think I will be coming back? NEVER!!!!
