Food was every bit deserving of a 5 star review. Location is amazing. I couldn't give a perfect score solely because of service. Our waiter was quite oblivious, but I can't stress enough how great the food was.

My wife and I both had their 1.5 lb lobster special
Both were less than a lb. soaking wet and they were
Meat was soggy probably the lousiest lobster I ever had
In my 68 years. I don’t mind a small lobster but I insist
In it being fresh.

Do to the noise level, we cannot return. Appetizer (humas) was very good. Crab cocktail and Fish & Chips lacked taste. However...Waitress was very polite and concerned.

Not relaxing at all. Noise level is way too high. Food could be better if chef would just cut back on thyme.

I wish we had found this place when we first started spending weekends in Long Branch many years ago! The food is great, the ambience is great and the service is terrific.

We have always loved the food here. However our last visit was really disappointing. We felt rushed the entire time. Our entrees came our way too early so we sent them back. Then they came out again while we were still enjoying our apps. It wasn’t late but we were one of the few tables left seated for the night. We weren’t even offered to see the dessert menu. Check was just left for us to pay and leave. We don’t get out often but when we do it’s nice to enjoy your time out. That was not the case and we probably won’t go out of our way to return here. If you are going to take reservations and be open for business then give your customers the experience you want them to have. Otherwise close early.

Bring back the old Sally Tee’s please! Parking lot was flooded. Decor and ambiance was refreshing and the martini was tasty but very disappointing dinner menu. Where was the seafood??? No steamers! No salmon! No shrimp! Why not? Drunken clams were tasty but many were empty and not at the bottom of the bowl. Crab cakes were okay. Lobster roll was disgusting. No apples or celery whatsoever. It was pretty much tasteless, like lobster with mayo. Fries and bread were tasty. Service was good. Probably won’t be back.

Was hoping to sit outside and did not realize this was not for reservations- the wait was 45 mins for 2. Inside was crowded, loud, and freezing with the AC. Our waitress was nice and apologized, but it took 15 mins to get water and then 45 mins for our entrees to arrive after our appetizers. This was way too slow. The food was great.

The food was just eh, nothing exciting. We had reservations so we asked for an outdoor seat and they told us 1 1/2 hour wait. It was So cold in the restaurant that even if the food was good we would not have been able to enjoy it. The service was not good she never came back to ask us for drinks after the first round it was as if she disappeared. They should teach their waiters and waitresses that they make most of their money off of the alcohol. All in all we will not go back.

It is a very noisy restaurant so if you are looking for quiet it’s not the place! Our food was good however three of the four entrees were delivered and had to wait an excessive amount of time for it to be delivered!

Outdoor seating real nice by the marina dock. Food good not great. Tuna burger wasn't your usual hunk of ahi but what appeared to be minced tuna compressed into a patty. Caesar salad ok. Inside quite loud. Will try again

We went for my girlfriend’s birthday, made a reservation and everything. We understand we couldn’t get seating outside, but it was so incredibly noisy inside, it was hard to maintain a conversation without feeling like you were yelling across the table. Our server was charming at first, but once we informed our server that we were not going to be ordering any alcohol, we were pretty much ignored for remainder of the night, even though our bill was high with the food we ordered. It was extremely frustrating to say the least, as I had heard incredible things about beach tavern. We live in the area, and unfortunately will have a tough time recommending this place to our friends and family in the future.

We have been at Beach Tavern many times, but recently we had a bad experience. Two of us ordered the tuna burger (rare and medium rare). Both burgers came out overdone and dry. The waitress ordered a replacement for the overcooked rare burger, but the new burger was cold and overdone as well. There was also so little aioli sauce on it, that after a few bites, we couldn't eat either burger.

This was our second visit to Beach Tavern and we were pleasantly surprised, as we were sure that it would never measure up to our first visit!
We have been overwhelmed each of our visits with the level of service, the quality of the food, and the comfortable, yet classy ambiance of this restaurant.
Nowhere else on the shore ( dare I say “in Jersey “!) have we been treated so well!!
This is a wonderful local experience filled with happy diners!
Most importantly the food is at a “Manhattan “ level with an appropriate laid-back “ Jersey “ vibe !!!
We will eat here at every possible opportunity!

Great find while visiting the Jersey Shore. We had lunch on the outside deck overlooking the marina. Beautiful spot surrounded by palm trees. Felt like we were on vacation somewhere tropical. We were seated promptly and food arrived quickly. Great menu choices. Food was fresh with a lovely presentation. Checked out the inside dining area on our way out. It was so much bigger than expected. Great spot for dinner or lunch!!

I want to thank you for making my daughter's 25th birthday so enjoyable! First, thank you to Sara who I confirmed my reservation with. I asked about reservations for outside and she suggested we come early in order to get a spot. This worked perfectly, so I can't thank her enough! It was a beautiful evening and the weather and views really made the night special. Secondly, our server, Meghan, was top notch! Friendly and attentive with great recommendations. Overall, a wonderful evening!
