Decided to try someplace new for lunch. Great view of the inlet on a beautiful day but the food was mediocre. I had fish n chips, thick reading, thin fish, frozen fries. Wife had fish tacos which were better, not great.

Had lunch here, sitting outside. Wonderful view of the Manasquan Inlet and Pt. Pleasant across the way. Inside and outside dining. Breakfast and nice lunch menu. A BYOB.

Go early to get an outside table and order a bacon & egg for a great start to your day. Watch the locals fish and the boats in the Inlet. Staff are super friendly.

The Riverside Café advertises the “Best Fish Sandwich at the Jersey Shore,” but I’ve had better. Most recently, I tried their crab cake sandwich. The roll was twice the diameter of the crab cake, and the crab cake was heavily breaded – more filler than...More
