We actually went here for our wedding anniversary. We became locals a few months before, so we wanted something truly local. We thought it might just be a pub with some pub food, but it was much more. At first we asked to sit in the Annex, but the hostess wisely advised us that there was a large family party... More

We went to the Brickwall on the Friday before New Years Eve for drinks and dinner. We were walking by it when we decided to go in. I'm so glad that we did! The bar was very lively. We got seats at the Annex bar. The bartenders were very nice and attentive. After a few drinks we decided to order... More

Despite being out on a very cold evening, the weather was not preventing anyone from stopping by here for their meal on the night of our visit. We had just walked in and were told it was a 30 minute wait. We waited a good bit longer than that, as by watching the staff, it seemed obvious that they were... More

We all enjoyed our meals and did not have to wait for a table on a Saturday night. It was crowded so we probably we just lucky! Service was good and good selection of beers.

Fantastic food in a very trendy, revitalized area of Asbury Park. Lots of shops and places to eat right around the area.

People love this place. I cant understand why. Then I discovered they must be enamored with the drinks pretzals and deviled eggs. This can all be done while watching sports. I really have tried hard to eat here several times. The salads arent even good. So I have decided I am only going for drinks and 2 appetizers.

Been here half a dozen times. Always consistently good food. Plus friendly wait staff. Bloody Mary not as great as usual but sure the busy Sunday had something to do with that. Won't stop me from returning. Parmesan grits outrageously yum. Chix bacon club huge and my teen loved. Husband says meatloaf and bacon Brussels sprouts were perfect combo.

The service was good. The food only OK. They sat us way in the back near the rear door at a time it wasn't so busy.
