We live locally and have passed Moonstruck frequently saying "we should try that place." I'm glad we finally did. The website said we could expect to wait 30-45 minutes at 6pm though our wait seemed shorter with a drink in the cozy bar. We were seated on the well appointed and atmospheric second floor. My wife's filet mignon was cooked... More

My friend and I visited Moonstruck at opening on a Wednesday night before going to a movie. The service was great and food delicious!

It was refreshing to eat at a shore restaurant that wasn't catering mostly to the tourist crowd through menu choice and decor. The food was delicious and the service was perfect.

I love this restaurant! The food is always excellent, the décor and ambiance is gorgeous, great service and if the weather is good, try eating on the wrap-around porches overlooking the lake. It can get very crowded in season but they have a ton of lounge space to get a drink and relax while you wait. I love spring and... More

My wife and I ordered the steak and were very satisfied. Great service, friendly waiters. The apple crisp was amazing too.

The place looked great from outside so we decided to try it. They were able to accommodate 3 of us immediately even though the place was fairly busy. I had the shrimp and scallop risotto which was absolutely delicious. I ate every bite. Mojitos were perfectly made. We will be back.

This is the second time I went to Moonstruck. Although it was a weekend I October, it was busy all night. We got there around 9:15 and was able to be seated immediately. The fish special was excellent. Service was outstanding and so were the bar drinks. Another excellent meal.

Moonstruck is my favorite place for a special meal in Asbury Park and definitely an excellent choice for a romantic meal or special occasion. Housed in a Victorian style building with several levels, charming wrap around porches, and views of Wesley Lake, the mood is set just as soon as you walk up to the door. In summertime, you can...
