Great vibes, good old time rock guys , big bar scene, raw bar, etc.. We like the porch with the view of the sea! Fast service! We had GREAT oysters, freshly shucked , only $2 each.. Hmm hmm good! Then a Sea Scallop entree with green beans and rice and pineapple mango salsa. My wife had a crispy Crab Cakes .. Excellant!! The Carrot cake was OK , somewhat supermarket , but a nice cream sauce on side.. maybe the carrot cake was too cold? Anyway .. We like it at The Columns! Comfortable, fun, go!

Went for grill room lobsters, shrimp and clams today. Didn't disappoint! Everything was delicious and very reasonably priced Every thing is cooked to order We come here a few times every summer The only bad thing I can say about this restaurant is that the staff is unfriendly and have bad attitudes

Busy restaurant, crowded, loud. Decent food but limited choices. Pleasant staff. Prices kinda high for what you get - but not too bad.

Pretty busy Wednesday night. Hostess was efficient, waitress was great and snagged us the last order of steamers and I was glad she did!! They were delicious as was my Surf and Turf Taco combo: one with fried oysters and spicy slaw and one with a grilled steak, fried onion and chimichurri. Watching the beach and ocean at sunset and listening to live music from inside the building completed the experience...that and a gin and tonic.

Spent a week at the shore and went to the Columns 2 x during the visit. Great bartenders, great food and a tremendous view of the Jersey shore. Daily food and drink specials that are perfect any day. A great place.
