The food for the most part was very good, but there were no COVID precautions in place. Most concerning was that our waiter was not vaccinated (said so) and did not wear mask.

Lovely restaurant! Beautiful dining area overlooking sand dunes and the ocean. Surf n Turk was outstanding. Signature mashed potato’s equally outstanding. Caesar salad a must. Sorbet in its natural shell. Coconut was refreshing.

Had anniversary dinner during stay at the Breakers hotel. Was best meal of the stay in terms of ambiance, service and food. The Breakers also serves drinks and dessert on the porch in the evening so we finished the evening with dessert and a nice...ocean breeze. During the summer its busy so reservations a couple of days in advance are a good ideaMore

We loved this place and it is very popular so make sure you make a reservation well in advance. Beautiful dinning room with a view of the ocean. The food was the best we had in Spring Lake and the staff was very professional and...personable.More

We hosted a family get together at The Breakers. Due to our large party (we had 13), they arranged to put us in the Regency Room. Everything was handled perfectly. Turns out we had the room to ourselves, and the table was round which made...for easy conversational cross-talk. All agreed that the food was outstanding. And to top it off the service provided by Laura and Blaise could not be beat. Kudos to The Breakers for making our night so special!More

The setting was lovely and the food was really good: I ordered the eggplant as an appetizer and it was delicious , the house wine was also very good. Our lserver was very friendly and very prompt. My only problem was we were asked if...a side salad was OK . I was surprised that they would give a side salad with an appetizer but I said yes that was fine. I didn’t realize that we would be charge seven dollars for the salad: I know it’s my fault I should’ve aske, but this was a little disconcerting and affected what was otherwise an excellent dining experience.More

in our recent 3 night stay at the Breakers we enjoyed one breakfast and 2 dinners at the Breakers restaurant. The kitchen, in my opinion, is well above the average hotel kitchen. The menu is creative and complete with typical dishes leaning toward Italian cuisine...as well as some more creative items. Our first night we ordered too much as portions were larger than anticipated. My husband's shrimp cocktail included 4 colossal shrimp, and my perfectly done crisp but tender fried calamari could have been shared easily by 3 diners - both a great start to the meal. The house salad include with all entrees, was delicious and ample, Also included with entrees are wonderfully prepared mashed potatoes. The veal piccata was a joy. Another night we enjoyed the long-stemmed roasted artichokes appetizer - enough for 2 to share. A special entree offered was swordfish with a ginger - orange sauce. absolutely outstanding. Agnes was our charming and attentive server. A lovely evening for our 60th wedding anniversary.More

The view is amazing. Jack was a great server. They were very serious about covid. That said, the menu was unimaginative and the decor was dated. I would return, tho.
