Have been here many times, food is always great and it's BYOB. Great spot if seeing a show at the Algonquin. Try it, you won't be sorry.

Our promise from day one has been to create, produce and serve superior, full-flavored food that has a beginning, middle, and finish to every bite. We strive for efficient, uncompromised, sincere, fabulous, caring and exceptional service. Community is very important to us, and we plan to be an active part of the Manasquan community. We are excited about building strong relationships with everyone we interact with: our customers, our community, and our purveyors. We purchase from local farms, donate food to charitable causes, and work with organizations to teach people the importance of eating a local diet.
