We enjoyed. Really good food! You should try salmon in mango salsa or their house special crab cakes. Delicious! 😁

The food was pleasant and the wait staff tried hard, but overall my daughters and I all decided to skip this place. The appetizers are quite good, although calamari seemed overcooked. The entrees were too big and too bland. Something you would get in a good diner. The seating outside was charming, but it was a hot day and my... More

Extremely disappointed!!! Our table was dirty & sticky. Food arrived cold and undercooked. My husband requested a soda with his meal & received a glass with lipstick on it. I requested an ice tea and received my drink with a toothpick in the ice served with it. Before we left after paying $80 for an early dinner, I asked to... More

Very disappointed in the service and menu items. We were fortunate to sit on the porch. The service was slow (had to ask for napkins twice) and it was after 9:00 do the dinner rush was over. When we were first sat down, the person setting up the table would not open our wine (yes, she was over 21) and... More

Our waiter was friendly and helpful in suggesting food on the menu. The crab cakes were excellent. Wish it was open more hours.

Serious menu and interesting choices, but you can still get a very good hamburger if that's what you want. Like eating on the porch the best.

We were recently guests at the Majestic Hotel in Ocean Grove and attended a dinner show event there called “A Night at the Copa”. What an awesome experience! A five piece band which included a female vocalist. They were unbelievably talented and engaging, playing a broad spectrum of music, including many tunes which we danced to. It was like being...

The scallops are fantastic!! I ate here with my family and then had my wedding here. For my wedding the hors d'oeuvres were out of this world! My guests are still talking about them 3 weeks later!
