The food at the Mahogany Room is great and consistent. One might think that the food at Bar Anticipation might be less of a focus but you would be very wrong. Some of the best burgers on the shore, great bbq, and specials. The food is really good and the kitchen knows what they are doing!

Food was good but we were really rushed which was very annoying. Appetizers and entrees were served together & that alone is wrong. Our server started off being nice but must have started having mood swings and became rude. Would have been nice if she said thank you for the 30% tip she received from us.

Sad to leave this poor review but you never, ever question a tip, especially when we didn't even finish at the table. We were a party of 7 and were still trying to figure out the tip situation between us all and the waitress Julie stormed over questioning why we were only leaving 10%. The food and service were good but we won't be returning. So rude.

A special lunch menu was offered during Jersey Shore Restaurant Week and I wanted to have lunch at The Mahogany Room. Food was superbly prepared and service was excellent.

Had a night when a patron at another table had an issue with their dining guests and decided to splash water or some liquid on him, she missed and I was the brunt of the liquid. Managers did not handle the situation to my satisfaction and allowed the female who did the throwing was allowed to stay on premises which got me upset. Managers shgould have done more to take care of the six people at our table.

All the food was delicious. Reasonably priced. Waitress was very attentive. Chips & dip while we were waiting for food were a nice surprise!

Bar A is a classic Belmar hang out spot - once you get there you feel like you are at an older South Beach hotel - lots of indoor and outdoor bars, sand, volleyball , waterfall , sit down cabana's- it's a fun spot and a young and lovely crowd. Week nights are much less crowded. Bar A, especially the indoor areas need a total upgrade on decor. The food is fine- nothing special - the service is friendly - acoustic live music too - go there for the experience

My book club meets here once a month on a Monday for their 2-for-1 burgers. It is a wonderful setting and quiet enough that we can discuss the latest book we've read, but also with enough ambiance that we don't feel we're in a place where we can't laugh and have fun. The burgers are incredible, and the price is perfect.

I celebrated my birthday at Bar A. My friends and I had dinner first in the Mahoghany Room and the service was excellent. The staff was very friendly and catered to our every need. I even liked that they would come over every now and then asking how everything was. The food was also excellent and it came out in a timely manner. I would recommend Bar A to everyone. :)

Our waiter, Rich, was very friendly and the food and service were both exceptional. My fiancé and I were in Town for Valentine's weekend and Rich made us feel very comfortable. I will definitely be back when we are back in the area. The BBQ Chicken nachos were amazing as well as the Pasta dishes we both had. Margaritas were perfection! Love this place!

Service was outstanding (Rich) and food was delicious. There was enough room for a big party as well as smaller tables. The menu had something for everyone. (Ultimate nachos, fried pickles and 6-hour smoked brisket were especially tasty.) This was the first time our family of 5 visited to The Mahogany Room at Bar A. We will be back!
