We finally ate at Bia in Ocean Grove. We visit there often and always thought it would be a nice place to try. We stayed at the Majestic Hotel where the Bia is located . We ate outdoors on their porch . It was a beautiful night but the seating is cramped and tables are covered in old plastic cloths... More

Was there for a Aunts 90th with about 40 family. Service was outstanding. The salad we were all served was great, and the buffet had a good choice of items all prepared well. Liquor was brought in by family(Ocean grove is a dry town)

Great location but its the little things that make a difference. The small piece of bread given as an appetizer could have been warmed. The ideal seating is outside on the porch which has very limited seating. you are one block to the beach on the main street. The portions of food are average and prices are as expected for... More

This fantastic restaurant is located on #19 Main avenue in Ocean Grove. It occupies the first floor and its associated porch of Majestic Hotel. Many a times I passed by this restaurant but never experienced its superb food. Finally, last weekend, after reviewing its menu, we stepped up to the porch to have some lunch. The food was superb, out... More

We had dinner there. Restaurant is small, service was good, food was tasty. It's expensive. My ravioli came floating in bechamel sauce. Fortunately I like sauce. Waiter was v good.

What a lovely restaurant! You have a choice to sit inside or on the porch - we opted for a little table for two - food was fantastic - had the best guacamole with crab meat EVER - service was fantastic - and being Ocean Grove, it is a BYO.

We like to walk to Bia's for dinner at least once during vacation. It is located perfectly between our summer home and the beach. The staff is always pleasant. We love to get a seat outside, depending on where they seat us we often feel almost like we have the place to ourselves. The food is always good, flavorful with... More

Food was excellent. Expect to spend $ 20 - 30 per person. Bia is BYOB (we brought wine) . We arrived at 7:50 and they were closing, but stayed open for our party of 6. Surprised at a beach resort how early the restaurants close.

As we live in Ocean Grove, Bia's is of course, easy to get to and the staff and food are great! During the summer, it is fun to sit outside and watch the world go by and as the Majestic where Bia's is located, is on the beach block you can see the Ocean from the porch..
