The staff was incredible with their knowledge and friendliness. They had a special just for the occasion called the Grinch which my son ordered and... More

Service was attentive but not intrusive just the way like it. I judge service by my water glass. I drink a lot of water so It takes a lot to keep my glass full. Lol. Food was excellent. I had the special veal chop which was delicious. Atmosphere was cozy and just a little loud from the bar area but... More

We always forget about this place because of the location but when we do go there it is never disappointing. They have a great seafood selection and usually have good specials. I had the Alaskan salmon special which was delicious.

Whether eating at a table or the bar, you always get a solid experience. From the food to the staff, everything is done well. Great if you don't mind paying a little more for excellent quality. One of our (me and my husband) favorite places to go.

We have been travelling from North Jersey to Shipwreck Grill, in Brielle, when we want very good seafood in a shore setting. All the food is good; we have never been disappointed. The one appetizer we particularly look forward to is their tuna tartar. It is always extremely fresh and is combined with avocado. Mmmm Mmmm Good!!! The only course... More

So, I love this place. I've read the reviews and don't quite get the unfavorable ones. As a foodie guy and restaurant owner, I do my best to check out was is going on locally in my area. There are very few places in the here that constantly produce inspired and quality driven dishes. My favorite meal has to be... More

We have been to Happy Hour at the bar and that is fine. We decided to sit at a table for dinner on a Monday. First came 4 slices of bread that felt a day old and if it was to be warm, it was not. We asked for more and this time we got fresh bread. Service was ok... More

After hearing about this place for over a year, I decided to dine there on my recent trip to NJ. Service was mediocre. Food quality...less so. I decided to have their lobster bisque followed by Dover Sole. The bisque was simply simple. Must have come out of a can. This is the first time I have ever had Dover Sole... More
