Excellent food service and ambiance
Great ambiance, delicious food, great service! Will definitely come back!!!
Great meal! Food is always too notch! The halibut is our favorite. Our server was Chris and he was awesome. 5 stars all the way around
Always an amazing dinner experience. From their outstanding drink menu and wine list to their dinner specials. I had one of those dinner specials which I think was one of the best I’ve had. The flank steak was tender, delicious and cooked perfectly at medium rare... I had the peppercorn sauce on the side. The setup was a polenta cake with grilled veggies of broccoli, cipollini onions, and sliced mini peppers and absolutely delicious. I would live to see this setup become the norm for the steaks as it was much healthier and tastier than the current setup of mashed potatoes,fried onions and creamed spinach. Did I mention the drinks! My dirty martini was perfectly dirty! Sorry food was so good I didn’t get picture!
From the moment that we were greeted it was an outstanding experience. The calamari appetizer was the best that I ever had. It was extremely tender and had an amazing flavor. I had the poached lobster with pasta. I was afraid it might be too heavy. It was the perfect amount of richness that it needed. The rest of my party was also impressed with their food- surf and turf, filet and salmon special. The best part was the potatoes with goat cheese gratin! Don’t pass those up. House-made dessert was extremely impressive. We had a birthday celebration which I highly recommend The Shipwreck for your special occasion. Lastly, the staff and service absolutely impeccable. They had a covid safety system in place which made me definitely respect them and looking forward to my next visit.
Always a great experience. Truly appreciated the extra details and attention to service.
Liam, as always, is the best! Love him behind the bar, true mixologist. I always tell him to just make me a delicious concoction and he never disappoints. He was our server tonight and he is just as good table side as he is behind the bar. Always a great meal at Shipwreck, and that is coming from a woman who’s husband is a chef.
My boyfriend and I went for the first time for our Valentine's Day dinner (after Valentine's day) and the food was amazing. We shared the steamed clam appetizer and it was so good! One of the best steamed clam dish I've ever had. He got the 8oz Filet and I got the Petite Surf and Turf. Everything was delicious. The one thing I found really nice is that the hostess took our temperatures before steating us. They do a great job with following covid guidelines and we will definitely be back in the future.
Everything was perfect. Food was amazing. Service was great
Absolutely amazing! First time coming here and will be back again very soon!
One of our all time favorite dining spots. Excellent service wonderful food killer cocktails in a pretty setting. Consistently done right!!
Katie was our server, and excellent as usual. Food is always outstanding, fresh and well presented. Shipwreck is doing a great job with COVID precautions- tables are well spaced, menu is online, sanitizer everywhere, etc. One of my favorite restaurants on the Jersey Shore.
My wife and I love shipwreck grill. We always get the tuna tempura appetizer. Our absolute favorite. They had a flat iron steak special which I got and it was absolutely amazing.
Lump crab appetizer was the best we've ever had, and we've tried a ton of them. Lobster bisque was basically bisque with a few shreds of lobster sprinkled in the middle, so if you're looking for mouthfuls of seafood, don't get it. It tasted good but the amount of lobster was disappointing.
Our only real complaint was how we were seated and waited about 5 minutes for the waitress to take our drink order, then another 7 minutes for the drinks to arrive. The pace was slow, which we really didn't mind, until we were finished with our entrees and the waitress asked if we wanted to see the dessert menu. When we said yes, she then told us that we have to hurry up because the next group was ready to sit at our table. If you want us out of there in a certain time frame, don't make us wait at the beginning of our experience and then push us out the door.
It was above all our expectations. The restaurant was very clean and took all the necessary precautions to be COVID safe, taking our temperatures when we arrived, wearing masks, tables at safe distances, and downloaded menus. The food was absolutely delicious, two of us had the lobster fondue with the homemade pasta, my son had the ribeye steak which was cooked perfectly. He loved the creamed spinach. My husband always gets the same thing, tuna entree and tuna appetizer. We had the soups, awesome. The prices are high but worth it when we can do it. Everyone loved the drinks, especially the old fashioned. I highly recommend Shipwreck Grill for a special night.
Really nice - both had steak, very nice cuts and sides were excellent, great wine menu - will definitely come again
We made a reservation for a weeknight — on a cold January evening for a birthday dinner.
As always the food is excellent— terrific fresh seafood and great wine list with innovative dishes.
HOWEVER. We were very concerned about how crowded the dining room was. Tables are way too close together. There appeared to be several larger tables , people paused and standing over other tables and talking, without masks. It made my family very uncomfortable and concerned while COVID rages
We elected to sit outside, since it was a special occasion otherwise we would have just walked out. The porch has plastic around it with no open air ventilation but we were the only ones , so we kept our coats on and made the best of it
We will not return until the pandemic ends.
If you are at all concerned about COVID I would avoid inside dining. They are clearly not following guidelines.
Never had a bad meal at this restaurant! Fish is always fresh and delicious! I do miss sitting at the bar however. Hopefully once we get covid under control things will return to normal somewhat.
Very good meal. A special occasion restaurant for most. Soup could have been hotter. Grouper was excellent.
Always a delicious meal. We love the Tuna, scallops, and the burger...everything is always tasty.
Great meal from appetizers to dessert
Burrata and lobster appetizer was delicious
Poached lobster entree was outstanding
Amazing place. We’ve been there several times and we always have a great experience.! Can’t wait to go back!
All went well. Nothing special...hence very good.
Wife birthday could not been happier
Always a top notch dinner at Shipwreck!! Food is always excellent and cooked perfectly and service couldn’t be better. Our favorite place for sure!
The food here never disappoints. Highly recommend the octopus appetizer.
Absolutely love the staff very accommodating and the best food! Erica and mark
New Years Eve
My families go to place for special occasions. Always happy with food and service.
Great food and wonderful service as always.
Food was incredible. They were pretty busy and our main course took a little longer to get to our table, but our servers were great and even gave us a free round for the little bit of the extra wait : ) (and it seriously was not a big wait!) Will definitely go again and would recommend
Katie is a wonderful waitress and I would recommend this restaurant to others.
Amazing service and food one of my favorite restaurants
Christmas Eve dinner, outdoor dining, on a windy night! This was our first time here. Obviously it would have had more ambiance inside but we ate on a covered patio area that was well heated and tables were well spaced. The food was fantastic! So many interesting things to choose from! The cocktails were great too. Definitely more upscale and on the expensive side but worth it.
Wonderful dinner on Christmas Eve. Service was impeccable and the food was delicious. The Lobster Burrata appetizer had big pieces of lobster. For dinner, I had the Veal Chop special. Also, they take temperatures during arrival. During these COVID times, I appreciate that. I have nothing bad to say about our experience or our dinner.
We sat outside is the covering area which was a little chilly. Most people wore their coats. I had a draft on my feet. The service was spotty at times. We had to look for our server. The food is expensive but good portions and delicious. Same with the drinks. Dessert is total worth its value. We were disappointed that only one person sang happy birthday to my sister, considering most of the workers were standing inside not wearing masks. Our server was hustling and cleaning glassware.
Always a great experience and delicious food. The staff is always wonderful and helpful.
Great staff, excellent food - I usually get steak but I'm now hooked on the grouper !!! Can't wait to be back sitting at the bar having the best burger ever !!!
Excellent night. Everything was done right. Felt very safe.
