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.

Outside seating is terrific. Nice varied menu and reasonable pricing. Service is very good even on crowded weekend nights. Inside seating is very noisy

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!

We’ve eaten here numerous times and it’s always been hit or miss. Unfortunately this visit (which will be our last) was a huge miss!! 10 small flavorless (drunken) clams for $18 is ridiculous! The pork milanese was “okay” but my husband’s fried chicken (Which completely lacked any form of seasoning) was both overly greasy and extremely dried out at the same time. There was something served with the chicken which was unidentifiable (maybe cornbread although it certainly didn’t taste like that). Drinks were served in small glasses with lots of ice and watered down. As “locals” we have a choice of so many wonderful restaurants at the Jersey Shore with beautiful views...we will not waste our time returning to Beach Tavern

Beautiful outdoor space, better food than any other similar restaurants in the area(waterside places like eventide, bahrs, Mcloones, Moby’s etc) and great calm area of the river.

That said food and service could be better, waited a long time for our food to come out and while solid it’s nothing to write home about. At the end of the day however as previously mentioned it’s hard to find dockside dining that is any better than a TGIF and this is definitely a notch above the rest with regards to ambiance and food.

Food was terrible and overpriced and they can’t be bothered with nice hostesses or managers or putting out sufficient umbrellas for the sun on the deck

I made a reservation to specifically be outside because I got engaged this evening. I received no phone call confirming my reservation from the restaurant or to tell me that outside seating is first come first serve. When we got there, the hostess who sat us was not very polite and when we asked why we weren’t sitting outside like the reservation asked she became quite clearly agitated and annoyed as if we were inconveniencing her. We asked if she could please check the wait time for outside seating - she sighed and rolled her eyes, came back, and told us it was about a half hour wait. Ultimately, we stayed inside. The waitress and the food were very good, though. Your hostess needs an attitude check. It should have been a wonderful night to celebrate and remember and unfortunately, what will be the most memorable part of the night is our awkward and uncomfortable interaction with the seating hostess.

Issue was, the sound level indoors was off the charts loud. Had to shout to have a conversation over the other people in the room. Service was great, food was very good, good cocktails, calamari was really tender, view obviously awesome.

This was our second time at the beach tavern, and it was just lovely. The first time we sat outside on the deck and it was absolutely beautiful with palm trees and beautiful flowers. Watching the sunset over the marina was just perfect. This time due to the extreme heat we ate inside and it was just as nice, with a window view of the sunset and deck. The food is amazing. The warm dates, grilled beets and everything else we had was delicious. Nice large bar inside for cocktails as well.

The food and service was great. The only negative was the noise level was very high. You could not hear the person across from you talking. Not sure what they could do to reduce the noise.

Ate outside which is much quieter than inside. But inside is a very nice place. Loud inside but the place is very well designed.

View of the marina from outside is nice. You don’t see much of the open water just the marina.

Food is very good. Had the fish n chips. While on the pricy side it tasted really good. The chips are mini potato. So don’t expect to see the traditional fish n chips that you’d find in a pub

Parking lot shares space with the marina and club. Came early before the dinner rush so I was able to get a spot.

Staff is really professional. One minor note when you make a reservation it’s for indoor. Outdoor seating is on a first come first serve basis.
