    Even though Santa was very sweet to the kids, for the money paid a more older and better looking Santa would have been appropriate . Tip Shoukd not have been included since it was a buffet. We should have been given the choice how much tip. It was. A buffet !!

    Went there for the thanksgiving buffet which I have had before and loved it! This time was not the same, the food was good but no chocolate fountain which I was actually looking forward to. Now for the mess, they had a live singer that was to loud and made it hard to enjoy dinner, he let some drunk guy sing like it was karaoke night, there was absolutely no holiday music at all which was the point of the dinner!? The staff had a hard time keeping up with the crowd. Took forever to finally get the check so we were forced to listen to overbearing wedding music! Unfortunately I do not recommend Ocean place Thanksgiving buffet.

    This was our third time there for Thanksgiving. This year the service was the worst! Nobody cleaned the dirty plates or brought dinks. When we did manage to flag someone down to ask for something it took forever to get it. The food was decent though.

    The food was absolutely delicious. It was easy to navigate the buffet and it wasn’t too crowded. However the service was the worst I have ever experienced. The wait staff was non existent. We were constantly trying to wave down someone to help us. The dirty dishes were piled up on our table and no one cleared them . We waited 20 minutes for a drink. No one took order for coffee. When we finally did flag someone down, they didn’t speak English! Was served cream for the coffee in a mug! Which of course spilled all over while trying to pour into coffee. There is not enough space to go on about the horrible service. The music was lovely for a bar but not for thanksgiving dinner. We could not hear each other speak at the table. Relatives that drove hours to see us could not even have a conversation with us. Very aggravating and embarrassing. Light Piano music would have been more appropriate.

    We love Ocean Resort Place, we were married there. Just don't go over a busy holiday weekend. With the heat and humidity, over Labor Day weekend, we were hoping for indoor dining. But they only had outdoor seating. We sat closest to the Boardwalk, but we were downwind of cigar smokers. They even allowed cigar smoking at the tables. That ruined our experience. Then, they turned on music, that teenagers would enjoy, and the speakers were very loud, we could not even converse. It wasn't live music, or a dj, it sounded like a siriusxm station, with commercials. They did turn it down when we asked. The servers were helpful, and friendly, they even validated our parking ticket. The salmon was good, rice was plain, and the salads were fresh. The iced coffee was mixed with tea, we had to send them back. Disappointing, but we still will return.

    It was a Saturday night and there were three other tables in the entire restaurant. We were a group of 7 with a baby. Drinks took forever and there was miscommunication between the bar staff and the servers and management about what bourbons were and we’re not available. Fifteen minutes later and three bourbon choices later drinks finally came out including the kids apple juice we asked for when we first sat down. After we finished dinner we weren’t asked if we were interested in coffee or dessert or another round of drinks just given the check. I went to the bar to order drinks the bartender was more concerned about when she was getting off for the evening saying they told me 930. It was well before 9 when we ordered so we weren’t going to be holding her up. She couldn’t make an espresso martini even tho it was on the menu. The management needs to train the kids they’re hiring. It is not the fault of the server and the bartender because they were clearly never given proper training on how to do their jobs. I would never send my worst enemy to this restaurant and we will never return.

    This place was so expensive. $80 per person and we had three kids. We ordered a lot but from the get go this place felt like it was trying to bilk you. I'm not sure if we even had to pay for parking because I saw some woman park in the grass 20 feet from where we had to pay $20. Big sign says no refunds for parking. We were the only ones there and still dinner took forever. The food was good but confusing. My crab cake had stone cold corn salad. $45 steaks were not seasoned well enough and came with no sauce. Kids said the lemonade tasted weird. Rice had absolutely nothing in it, just plain boring white rice. Several things were boring. And to top of off they charged us $9 for "open food," which is a box I guess to take home food that my son didn't eat. And it was a ripped box too boot. While we were eating the wait staff was sorting utensils in the corner so we had to listen to crash crash crash. Then the employee started watching loud videos with screams. We had to search around for a hostess when we came in as no one was there. View was nice but the inside employees didn't really seem to care about our dining experience. Waiter was nice but I'm angry we went here and we will never return.

    We came for Mother's Day brunch and we were very disappointed. For the price it was very poorly organized (came to over $400 for 4 ppl). The silverware and cups were dirty, food on the floor and on the chairs. The food was not kept hot on the buffet; although there was a nice selection it was not kept warm enough to really feel like you were enjoying a nice meal. We waited way too long for water and bar drinks were extremely slow, we were there almost 2 hours and only received one cocktail each during that time.

    Overall it was an as expected buffet for Mother’s Day. The only annoying thing was that they automatically added a 20% tip. It was a buffet!!! We saw our waitress maybe three times, she got my drink wrong (the only thing she actually had to serve us) and was MIA once we were ready to leave and needed the check . Tipping should be up to the customer ESPECIALLY at a buffet.

    The price was just outrageous for mediocre food at best. The coffee was warm, not hot. I was disappointed. However, the last few times I have been here I have not been satisfied, especially for the price. We will not be attending here anymore in the future unfortunately.

    We went here for dinner and it was the first and probably the last time we will eat there. The service was non-existent! The restaurant was completely empty when we were seated and there were people walking in and looking lost, with nobody to seat them. The server was distracted and seemed to forget we were there. It took way too long to get our meals and by the end of the meal we just wanted to get out of there. It's unfortunate because it's a very pretty place, but we won't be returning any time soon.

    The restaurant advertised an Irish breakfast with step dancing entertainment. The food was excellent. A little short on some main items for full irish breakfast, but excellent cuisine. Our table service was almost non-existent. When the bill arrived, I understood why. 3 adults and 1 toddler, 21% gratuity included in the bill. Why give good service, when you are guaranteed a large tip. I should also mention that there was no step dancing or even irish music. Although the meal was good, it was not worth $39 per adult, with mimosas extra. Sadly, disappointed. I think they should have done a better job.

    Awful. Understaffed to the point they should have closed. Price fix for the holiday. Food was over cooked. Drinks came very late and gratuity was added in the bill with the holiday. No offer of follow up drinks, coffee etc. atmosphere was lovely at the beach but for the price, I would never go back.

    Food itself was tasty but cold. Drinks came after our first course. Tried to be patient because of the holiday but I won’t be going back for a holiday. Waiter did take an amount off and took some wine we had off the bill. If they had a better staff I think it would have been a better experience.

    Horrible. They tried to seat us at an 8 top for 3 ppl. Then I asked to move them a 6 top. I asked again. Maybe he didn’t hear me table for 3 and gave us 5 top. The waiter then asked if I was senior over 65. I’m barely 50 and been told I look 35. Then no one barely cleared our dishes due to buffet style. Then added 21% tip. Horrible not worth told never coming back. I recommend. Go elsewhere the service sucked

    Overall it was OK. In the past I would've rated this 4 or 5 but the upkeep has gone down. We were seated by windows & when I looked down on sill there was fifth; dust,dirt, & leftover crumpled paper . Disgusting ..wasn't wiped for ages. When I asked the waiter if there were any specialty drinks or a menu he looked annoyed & pointed to the mimosa special on table . I didn't mean that..I meant " specialty " as in what I found when I walked to restrooms ,& there was a menu of Special drinks near water jugs. He should've brought us that! The waiter didn't seem to understand English well.." Tell me what u want illa get it"! Manhattan, bloodymary..?Really! That is not a specialty drink. The pumpkin & chocolate were but we didnt see that till after our meal . For the price, I think food, waitstaff & cleanliness of the place is way overrated. The ambiance of course nice, near water. But upkeep Nah..not good . I wonder what the rooms are like...??! Years ago it was a great place to stay.

    Thanksgiving dinner at Seaview restaurant in Long Branch was absolutely delicious. The turkey was very moist and the butter squash ravioli were fabulous. I loved the pecan pie. We will definitely join them again.
