My husband's family hold's their family Christmas party there and it gets better every year. The food was outstanding, people were carrying two plates filled with so much food and going back for seconds. I love going every year, can't wait for next year! more »

My husband and I splurged for Lobster Night during restaurant week. We decided to go on a Saturday night. The restaurant is tastefully decorated, and there was LIVE PIANO MUSIC during our dinner; how nice!
Although many other reviewers state that the food here is not as good as it used to be, we found everything to be tasty, with HUGE portions.
Our server was WONDERFUL and extremely attentive, providing beverage refills without being asked, and even picking up items dropped on the floor. She remembered all of our additional items, and was extremely pleasant and personable.
My husband had the clams casino (an added app), the tuna tacos, and the lobster Margarita. All items were HUGE and yummy. The tacos were served on a Turkey platter plate, and covered with AHI TUNA. The lobster was steamed and covered with beans and corn salsa. We were also given a basket of yummy bread and hush puppies which were so sweet they tasted like Zeppoles!).
I ordered the lobster bisque soup, and the steamed lobster with coconut shrimp. Both were yummo. We also ordered a side of cole slaw.We both finished the evening with the included Key Lime pie (which we took home, since we were both stuffed to the gills!)
The place was absolutely bopping, as there were weddings and a 50th anniversary party also taking place during our visit. everyone was happy, the staff was extremely accommodating, and there was plenty of room to wander, given the large lobby. We never felt crowded in this restaurant/catering hall.
I understand that the menu is "heavy" on seafood, as previous reviewers commented. But this is a SEAFOOD restaurant; if you want other types of food, you should NOT be eating here. And there is a non-seafood Jack Baker's right across the street.
My husband and I were pleasantly surprised by the quantity/quality of food, the large assortment of lobster meals available during restaurant week, and the fact that there was a singer in the restaurant. The lovely view of the water only added to the ambiance. This was truly a perfect meal in a perfect setting.

Nestled on Channel Drive between the commercial lobster and fishing boats with stunning views of the Manasquan River, this classic American Seafood & Steakhouse restaurant has, since 1955, been a favorite destination for locals and visitors alike. After Hurricane Sandy we rushed to get the Sunset Ballroom opened in time for the events we had already booked. The restaurant was the next focus. While we were making repairs we decided to update the layout and some of the features. We are happy to be open again! Jersey Strong! Sunset Ballroom is our wedding and event venue: https://www.facebook.com/TheSunsetBallroom http://thesunsetballroom.com/ Wedding Wire: http://bit.ly/SH4GJMmore »
