Day's Ice Cream

Reviewed By Heidi D - Lambertville, New Jersey

This charming ice cream shop, located off the beaten path in Ocean Grove, serves excellent ice cream. There are several options in town, and I've definitely come to prefer this one. Outpost in the Dunes food court, but the Pittman location has the most atmosphere. Expect a line, but worth the wait. Today we had two seasonal flavors -- the pumpkin (very good and just the perfect spice) and the apple pie (big chunks of apple). Try it -- you'll be back.

All Seasons Diner

Reviewed By Edith G - Haifa, Israel

This is one of my family’s favorite eating spots and so I often join them when visiting in the area.

There is a wide selection on the menu, prices are midrange, average for a diner. The service is especially friendly. The food is consistently good. There is ample parking which is easily accessible from the highway.

A sure place to catch a good meal.

Moonstruck

Reviewed By justblu - Bronx, New York

We dined here on a friend's recommendation.

We arrived after 9pm on Saturday night without reservation as the establishment does not take reservations on parties of less than 12.

We were quickly seated to a very tight, small table right out side the kitchen and not far from where the silverware is kept so all we would have been hearing while dining would have been the annoying noise silverware makes when dropped. Additionally, all the hustle and bustle from the wait staff coming in and out of the kitchen would have been a major distraction from what we thought should have been a romantic dinner.

We asked if there was another table available and within five minutes we were moved to the third floor. We asked if we could sit at a larger table with a pretty view of the lake. We felt it was a very reasonable request considering it was already well after 9p plus there were plenty of other 4 seat tables available. The host told us it was not possible because "at any minute they could many more customers come in".

The host proceeded to sit by a table where they very obviously celebrating a birthday and a young lady at that table clearly had had too much to drink because she very loud.

For appetizers we ordered calamari which absolutely tasteless and Portuguese clams with chorizo chili peppers. I grew up eating chorizo and fresh clams. These clams and chorizo were bland and completely devoid of taste.

Our entrees were Sesame seared tuna which wasn't bad other than it was unevenly seared and a bit too much wasabi. My boyfriend liked the Thai grilled salmon.

Our waitress was pleasant.

The owners of this establishment should pay more attention to the taste and quality of the food than they do to the décor. We won't be returning.

Turning Point

Reviewed By Tara Heagele - Trenton, New Jersey

This place is always packed, so expect a wait. But with ocean views and delicious food, I'm not surprised. I had the Big Easy Benedict (a New Orleans style eggs benedict with corn bread, avocado, creole onions, peppers, chorizo, and a cajun hollandaise sauce) and a gigantic s'mores hot chocolate. This was a perfect meal to prepare me for ice skating next to the ocean. I will be back!

The Hot Bagel Bakery

Reviewed By Ken J - Asbury Park, New Jersey

When we moved to Asbury Park, we looked up best bagels down the shore. The Hot Bagel Bakery came up. It's a nearly 15-minute trip each way, but based on the reviews, we felt it was worth checking out. The reviews were true. We've been coming here for 16 months, and we haven't been tempted to try anywhere else. So many bagels you get elsewhere are like bread or rolls. Not here: They have a crispy outside, a perfectly chewy inside, and tons of flavor. I like their egg salad and tuna salad more than Wegman's. I especially like the fact that they have whole-wheat everything, and whole-wheat egg bagels. We'll keep returning!

Piccola Italia

Reviewed By jdemos - Middletown, New Jersey

We as a group of four went out to celebrate the completion of a backyard deck project we had been working on for a month. We ordered drinks right away, three Cabernet and one of their special drinks, a Vesper Martini. You can eat at their bar which is quite long and has many stools\seats. For starters\appetizers, we ordered two Corn Chowders that had four actual steamer clams on the bottom of the soup\bowl from their specials menu, quite a wonderful surprise, they sold out of it halfway through the dinner hour. Also their Caesar Salad that had white anchovies in it and a Stuffed Zucchini Flowers treat, this item is hard to find anywhere. At this point our great wait staff person Robyn brought out an Amuse-bunched plate for each of us of a single Chicken Croquette sitting in a white cream sauce. Main courses we had where Skate Fish off the night’s specials for the night menu and also pan seared Salmon, citrus grilled Shrimp Scampi and porchini dusted\seared Day Boat Sea Scallops. All of these items had great flavor and were delicious we all agreed. We did not have room for one of their fabulous desserts tonight, maybe next time when we come for an elegant dining experience evening again. The pace of the meal was not rushed and even after we finished and were still sipping our wine and martini, we didn’t feel any pressure to leave. Their menu has many unusual, interesting and unique items for the picky to the voracious eater, do take a look. Chef Brian circulated through the dining room and talked to every table. He talked with us at our table then also again on the way out, very good of such a busy chef to do this for everybody, it was very nice of him to take the time. Brian’s menu’s are inventive, creative and certainly worth all the accolades he has received and also the kudos year after year from Zagat. His meals are fresh, lovely presentations with excellent accompaniments that you can see in the pictures I have included. The wait staff here is efficient, helpful and knowledgeable. From the bar tender to our friendly gal Robyn they were all terrific. The bartender actually came out from behind the bar and helped change tables during the rush there. The dining room was quiet even when it filled up and was busy so we were able top talk normally without needing to shout to be heard as happens so often in most restaurants. Our group’s time there was relaxing and very enjoyable. There is plenty of parking right in front of the restaurant and throughout the shopping center they are located in. They are in an unassuming corner of the many stores making up the complex. It was well worth the trip here and we recommend this place to you if you want excellent fine dining meals. If you are a foodie this is the place for you. Service and food preparation this night along with marvelous presentations were impeccable, very elegant at its fine dining best. The textures and tastes were fantastic for all of our meals from soup to nuts. There was great atmosphere in the beautifully decorated dining rooms. This certainly is among the top fine dining places in the Monmouth County and shore area. We all enjoyed our meals and our time here. We all heartily recommend this wonderful restaurant and the enjoyable time we had here to all of you. Go, do enjoy.

This was my second time at this diner and the food was as good today as it was 2 years ago when I first visited here. This is a great Jersey Diner. The diner is very clean and well maintained. I was meeting a group of friends here and was seated towards the rear of the diner. The servers had put several tables together so the 11 of us would be comfortable when we talked. I ordered a chopped Hollywood Salad which was like a chef's salad and an ice tea. The chopped salad was humongous and delicious. I'm a big eater and I had trouble finishing it. Everyone in the group enjoyed their meals. The server was right there to fill up my ice tea when it was low. What great service. Great Friends - Great Food - Great Service - Great Prices equal a Great Lunch. I'll be back.

Dessert last night was the highlight of the evening thanks to this bakery! The cannolis are great, as is their cream puffs - but those pignoli cream cookies? Wow - they are over-the-top delicious!!! We're sad and glad they're not located where we live - we'd be stopping there often!

SeaGrass Restaurant

Reviewed By Bernadette P - Allamuchy, United States

Have eaten here several times always excellent. Last night clam chowder was tasty but not hot enough. Scallops with lobster and bread crumbs was disappointing. Lobster was over cooked and dry. Scallops were under cooked and fishy. Toasted bread crumbs were balls of butter and were not hot. The prime rib special was the way to go. Not sure I will go back. Service was mediocre.

Rook Coffee Roasters

I'm the pickiest person I know and a coffee lover. Tthis place rocks it out of the park!!! I felt like I was drinking a complex red wine. There were so many different flavors that came out with none of the bitterness like Starbitch. I had the Bali—smooth and rich and it was the hottest cup of coffee ever served to me. Frankly, THE BEST! I have a feeling this is one of those tony places that is on its way to becoming a huge success. Love it!

Reviewed By erinbeth - Seattle

Visiting friends in New Jersey and they highly recommended Rook. We were skeptical but it is fantastic coffee. Went to 3 of their locations and all had great service and were great. Their coffee was wonderful but for a real treat try the New Orleans. It is served over ice but is amazing!
