The steak was tough. The tower of mozzarella salad was not recognizable as the small mozzarella and tomato stack was hidden by a little lettuce. The crab cakes in the sandwich were mostly breading rather than crab. The blooming onion was good, but greasy. We went because they sent us a free birthday meal, but it only paid for one... More

This is our local "go to" place when we're home at the Jersey Shore. We met friends for dinner and enjoyed good service and a variety of menu choices. The price fixed Restaurant Week offerings were excellent. I had the antipasto salad, stuffed pork chops with potatoes and vegetables and dessert all for $22. Wow! Must thank Mr. Simko: the... More

This is a sports bar and restaurant all in one. You can choose to sit near the bar in a booth to watch the sports, or in another room at a table away from all that. We ate Christmas eve dinner there last year, in a different section altogether, and enjoyed it. No matter how busy this place gets I... More

I like to frequent local businesses and have tried this place three times. The first time my meal smelled rancid and the other meal was still frozen in the middle. The second time each of.our meals was so overly salted we couldn't eat more than a few bites. On our third try once again out meals were average at best.... More

Wife, another couple and I went the Friday before Memorial day, the attentive but unobtrusive staff were great. More importantly each of our meals were perfect. Nothing overly pretentious or flashy just good food done right. Nice dining room with tables spaced comfortably apart. You can see why it ha been there for awhile now.

Got off the boat from fishing all day and wanted to get a meal without having to search around too much. This was just around the corner so decided to give it a try. Usually try to check a new place out ahead of time (on trip advisor of course) but just wanted a meal asap as we had a... More

Food is average, service is average, atmosphere is average. Not many locals go here. There are definitely better places in the area.
