Our party of four ordered a variety of dishes -- ribs, lamb, chicken scarpariello, shortrib ravioli, pot stickers (get these!), both desserts. Every dish was good -- correctly cooked and skillfully flavored. It's more expensive than Klee's but probably worth it. The ribs were a...little shy on sauce but meaty and tender. The churro bowl is a great dessert. Beer is cold, drinks are strong.More

I can not rate the food or service. Why? My fiancee and I sat down at two separate locations - the first in the bar area, the second in the family dining area at 8:15 pm. The dance music was so loud the bass tones...literally sent shock waves into your body. Even in the family area at an early hour. Coouldnt take it, had to politely get up and leave. Mixing dance hall with resturant at this place was a terrible idea. We love dancing, and have nothing against loud music - it doesn't work here to eat by,More

We went on a Saturday night in off season. We had a few appetizers and their famous Margarita pizza. The bacon wrapped scallops were delicious and tender, perfectly cooked and servered with roasted sweet potatoes. The braised short rib was tender and delious served over...risotto. The pizza lived up to its billing, perfeclty cooked and plenty of cheese. We stayed for the band where the dance floor was packed and everyone having a blast. We sat at the bar and we cannot say enough about the fantastic service we recieved. It is a fabulous evening out.More

Stopped here for a cold beer after walking the boardwalk. The service was great and prices were good. Wish we had time for dinner.

We stopped on a Friday night in off season and they were busy but we didn't have to wait for a table. DJ was playing some great music. Crowd that night was definitely more age 40 and over so it was great. Food was delicious...and good portions. Servers were attentive. Reasonable price for the two of us.More

Great food. Great atmosphere. Friendly Staff. Only complaint was service. We waited over 15 minutes for anyone to come to our table. We waited 20+ minutes for girl to 'bring back the receipt' for me to sign. We thought the forgot about us both times...(maybe they did). However, once they served our food they were very attentive asking us if we wanted refills etc. So, when you have food in front of you - service is good. But before and after... awfully slow.More

We recently came here for dinner with cousins who recommended the place. We were seated as soon as we came in. Our waitress was nice and checked back to make sure everything was ok a few times. The food portions were huge and good. The...only complaint is that my mom ordered the filet mignon sliders medium rare but they came out very rare. The waitress was good though and took them back quickly to have the meat cooked more.More

Much nicer than many places at the shore. Lots of great menu choices, entertainment on specific evenings and great Happy Hour Appetizers.

we wanted something quick, but not boardwalk food. Their selection is eclectic and there is something for everyone. The burger was fantastic and i recommend the truffle fries, and the sushi during happy hour
