My wife and I went there during the #50bitesAC promotion/charity event. We had the crab bisque and it was excellent. Service was great. Not far from AC so if there, I recommend it.

I recommend you go here for 2 things only: wings and crab bisque. I have tried almost everything else here and its marginal at best. Last trip ordered the chopped salad, which I even asked if it is chopped up fine Waiter said yes, but it wasn't. When I asked him about it when he delivered it, he told me... More

I always stop at the Hi Point every trip! Great local place. Great lunch specials every day, top notch bartenders (Beth!!). I have never gotten a meal I didn't love. The bisque is the best!

Stopped in to catch end of 1:00pm NFL games on a recent Sunday afternoon. Good sized bar with a take out food area and liquor store. Friendly bar patrons and attentive barmaid. Decent beer specials, $2.00 Bud/Bud Light pints. Did not eat there because I had recently eaten elsewhere. Popular local joint with a good vibe. Would recommend.

We've been saying for a long time that we needed to try Hi Point Pub. Finally, we made it there on a Saturday evening. We had an excellent meal--appetizers, 1-1/2 lb. whole lobster special, and the best bread pudding I have ever had. This is definitely on our 'favorites' list.

Everything has gone down here especially portions and quality. And the people coming in also has spireled downwards since being sold last year

We loved this place We don't drink but the food was great! The Top shelf lobster special from heaven made my night ! The chicken Marsala was a disappointment as the chicken was very sparse and the sauce was too sweet . Other places use tomato in the sauce but this was basically sweet and small. Only a 6 out...

This is a local pub. it is not fancy but the food is good and service beyond what i encountered in Atlantic City. The place is friendly and you get your money's worth.

Other half ordered grilled chicken Caesar salad both times in fall. Chicken in salad was over cooked and dry. 2nd time it happened I called to speak with manager. She assured me... More

The Hi Point Pub has been around for decades and has its share of ups and downs. Service was always great and the Hi Point Special sandwich was amazing. Lately however they are on a downward spiral and seem more interested in the place becoming a hangout for college kids and that will only take you so far. The bread... More
