I have been going to Brigantine for the past 28 years and have eaten breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Pirates Den many times. I have never been disappointed. When available I have ordered the soft shell crab sandwich which is the best I've ever had anywhere. I look forward to eating there when I vacation in June.

Although this restaurant was rated high on Trip Advisor, our experience was not that great. The food was average at best, and our waitress seemed to pay a lot of attention to other customers that appeared to be regulars. As a consequence, our service was very slow and she gave us very little attention and was not very friendly.

If you're looking for a great local standby that's open all year round in the resort town of Brigantine, the Pirate's Den fits the bill. Enjoyed a nice lunch in a clean environment in late March. Service and food were good too!

Got here before 530 to catch their dinner specials. Have been here many times and always left well satisfied. Noticed they've renovated a bit. Looks classy and much improved. Glad to see they kept the lovely seascape feature wall. Very good service! Like visiting Mom back home. Everything we ordered was made fresh in the kitchen - Coleslaw, salad dressings,... More

My husband and I had breakfast and took a walk on the boardwalk for a nice view of the ocean. Service was a little slow but food was good. We had Eggs Benedict and crabmeat omelette

In addition to having some of the best breakfast food, I had the pleasure of eating dinner here, my meal was fantastic, the service was awesome, they are friendly, and helpful. It isn't fancy, but that isn't what I want in a neighborhood gem. I want to walk in, feel at home and enjoy a well cooked dinner. The heart... More
