Drew's Bayshore Bistro

Reviewed By foodhiker - New Jersey

We picked this place on a recommendation for the Jambalaya and it did not disappoint. Ingredients are top shelf and flavor profiles interesting and well executed. The portions are HUGE - teenage boys couldn’t finish half of their Jambalaya dishes. The Nashville chicken has 2 boneless breasts and 2 biscuits. The shrimp and grits offers 10 nice sized shrimp with very rich cheese grits.
Pork belly appetizer was my favorite plate.
Service is very attentive but not hovering.
Voodoo shrimp is delicious and large enough it could be a main course for a smaller eater, but very rich.
Make a reservation-it’s not a large place.
We will definitely return!

Family Casual Fine Italian Restaurant

Reviewed By Robert S - Holmdel

Reservation worked out great. Arrived, seated and set in minutes. Although very crowded on a Friday night, the trained staff showed great efficiency...all pleasant and professional (our waiter Kyle was tops). Food was fantastic, served hot and all six diners together. Veal special was terrific. BYOB is very appealing.

Duck Donuts

Duck Donuts specializes in warm, delicious and made-to-order donuts. Choose from a variety of coating and topping combinations for your donuts, and then pair them with a cup of freshly-brewed coffee. We also serve muffins, breakfast sandwiches, tea and more.

Reviewed By michellengary - Belford

These donuts are fresh, made to order perfection. There's one base donut and you pick the icing/glaze you want and choose your combination of toppings. The cinnamon sugar is like a big churro. My kids love the maple glazed with bacon. The donuts are warm and yummy and crave-able.

Piero's Restaurant

Reviewed By Crazyhorse30 - New Jersey

Waitress and hostess were both extremely friendly and personable. Maybe the previous reviewer caught someone on a bad night or was mistaken. As for the food, it was above average Italian fare. Shrimp and chicken arrabiatta was a large portion for a fine dining establishment such as this, but I just wish the sauce had a bit more flavor. Still enjoyed it. Everyone else at the table liked their meals as well. Good place for cocktails as well. My friend enjoyed his martini while I absolutely loved the absinthe-lemon frappe.

Nino's Family Restaurant

We believe that quality fresh products are to be prepared in a simple and unique way, then served with pride and friendly service resulting in customer satisfaction. Our philosophy is very simple - genuine food and fair price. We are often imitated, but never duplicated.

Reviewed By Carol Molinari M

We decided to try Nino’s again since it has been years!

Drove early from Cape May City and arrived about 5pm.

When we walked in there was a woman adding up receipts in the front. She didn’t say a word and we stood there for 7 minutes and no one came out to the hostess station. Finally she says, someone should be right out! Then we waited another few minutes. I could see my husband getting irritated so i kept talking ( about anything & everything) to him to keep him calm!

Finally an older heavyset woman comes out and with no hello or welcome she says take that table there and she points! Throws the menus over to the table and walks away! The place was empty only 2 tables seated. We looked at the menu and selected but no waitress. No bread, no water! Took maybe 15 min! We should have just left!

Anyway Customer Service does not exist here. Service is horrible. Once the server came she was pleasant but with an empty restaurant why the long waits??

Food was a large portion and ok but the place needs a Real Hostess! A front that can welcome and take care of customers! — without a nasty attitude!

Place could also use an update but most important !! A really good Cleaning!
