the bar looked nice and I would come back and try a happy hour. The food was very good with excellent bread and salad with the meal. The atmosphere was a little stark Perhaps a floor plant here or there or a fish tank to separate some tables. Need something to look at when the conversation lulls! A man I assume was the owner was very conscientious and was even at the door to bid us farewell. We will be back with family.

We have enjoyed every meal we ordered. The owner is always around to check on you and the kitchen is efficient. The bar tender is always smiling and there with a quick quip. During this last visit the waiter was a bit over worked as they were short staffed. However, he handled it will with humor and a smile!

Look forward to being back soon!

This place is awesome. Food & service exceptional. Martinis are delish & very readinablely priced! Husband & I went for the first time 2 weeks ago & have been there 2 weeks in a row and brought others to enjoy with us. I’ve lived in the area for 24 years & always thought it was a biker bar- FAR FROM THAT- it’s the best kept secret in the area! I had flounder Francese which was amazing. I recommend the caramel apple martini as well. The only thing I would like changed is the lighting. It’s too bright which kind of takes. Away from the atmosphere. Love this place. Excellent value, service & of course Excelkent food!

Don’t get fooled by the fact that it doesn’t look like much from the outside. Very bright, well decorated dining room and bar inside. The food was very good, the service friendly and prompt, and the experience was a pleasant surprise for a quick business lunch

consistent food, good service, basic menu. Overall the place is ok and a safe bet to go for an upscale family meal. Decor and table wear are a bit dated and lighting is bright - could use a facelift.

We’ve been passing this restaurant for years and finally decided to try it.
Loved that our table was in one of the little alcoves. There were 4 of us and it made dinner cozy and easy to talk.
The food was good, not great, but the portions were large and price reasonable. The waiter was very nice and very patient. I believe he may have beet one of the owners.

Food & service is always consistently good. Portions are huge & prices are moderate. They have little nooks if you prefer quiet & plenty of space for a larger group. We went with 10 & everyone had a great time & enjoyed their meals. Love this fixture at the Jersey Shore!

I requested a quiet table for four. Table was ready when we arrived. It was quiet and secluded. Menu was varied with interesting specials. Food arrived within an acceptable amount of time, allowing time for talking between courses. Food quality was excellent. Portion size is above average, so you won’t go home hungry. We’ve been here before, and the food quality is consistently good. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to try a new restaurant.

I have been looking forward to trying this restaurant since it is so close to work for me and it did not disappoint. I met a friend there for lunch and am very much looking forward to having dinner there since the reviews are outstanding and the menu looks wonderful. The lunch was very varied and our meals were quite tasty. They had five lunch specials! I went with the Reuben and my friend had the pasta fagioli.

I will post a review after I have dinner there, hopefully soon.

We had not been here in many years. It appears as if it was recently renovated it was warm and inviting, particularly the bar area. The prices are reasonable and the service very efficient especially since there was only one server and one bartender servicing the whole restaurant. I had a chicken special that had broccoli and prosciutto on it. Not something I have tasted together before. It was properly seasoned and the portion was generous. My husband had ravioli, he came up for air when they were gone so I guess they were good! We will definitely return.

Had Easter dinner with the family party of 8. There was a limited menu due to the holiday which at first disappointed some of the attendees. This was overcome by the delicious food that was eventually chosen. Food is excellent. Service was casual, but acceptable. It's worth a try.

Old School food, well prepared, great portions and friendly people. What more can you want for a simple night out? Our party of 4 was all over the menu and everyone was satisfied. Was everything perfect? No it wasn't but it rarely ever is any where you go. The Veal and Shrimp Francais was good, The Grouper Livornese was very good. Our waiter Bob was a perfect, he made us laugh, brought us great drinks and helped make the night enjoyable. I am coming back because its fun and the food is good.

I went to this restaurant expecting a good meal. I have dined here in the past before it was remodeled and it is definitely not the same. First, my waiter was clueless and that's putting it nicely. We ordered two cokes and they had a weird taste to them. I figured out what it was when I went to the restroom. The water from the restroom faucet smells like pure rust, so bad in fact, that soap would not get the smell off my hands. I ordered veal parmigiana, which was ok, but my girlfriend ordered pork chops pizziola which were charred black and tasted like a dirty grille. So, all of this and on top of the waiter having no personality, made for a horrible dinner. I will not be going there again!
