This restaurant is located in the pier shops close to Caesar's casino. The decor is cute. The food was good, the shoestring fries were great really crispy and a big portion. I loved my (Tang based) Astronaut Martini. Overall a good experience.

There were 4 of us in our group which is an ideal number. We ordered a variety of foods, and they are delivered when ready. So, everyone gets to sample the food. And, all the dishes are delicious!

Having spent years going to both Continentals in Philadelphia we were so impressed by The Piers version. Far superior in food, design, and friendliness of staff. We had an amazing meal by the fire. Be sure to get the shoestring fries The made-in-house wasabi mustard is to die for.

We ate at the bar to take advantage of their happy hour menu. Everything on the happy hour menu is $5. Between the two of us, we had a couple of cocktails and beer, chicken skewers, chopped salads, chicken meatballs and dessert. Service was fast and efficient and the food was good.

Had a late dinner and the food was really great. We Ordered the teriyaki steak with wasabi mashed potatoes. The steak was tender and cooked perfectly, the potatoes were warm and delicious. My husband ordered the fried chicken and waffles and it wasn't bad but it could have been better. We ordered the lettuce wraps as an appetizer and they... More

I frequent the Continental often because the food is excellent and the drinks are very good. I normally eat at the Bar and almost always eat Tuna Tartare Potatoes and Blackened Tuna over Mushroom Risotto. This is definitely a wonderful place to eat and be merry.

My daughter and I enjoyed a fabulous dinner there this past Saturday night. We were seated on the floating dining room which had a warm fire in the center. The ambiance was wonderful. I wish I could remember our waiter's name because he was fantastic - friendly and helpful with suggestions. (He recommended the Dracula which I thoroughly enjoyed.) We... More

My wife and I went for the Happy Hour, and ended up staying for dinner. The overall atmosphere was great! It's an inside place but is designed to look like you are outside next to the boardwalk. We chose to sit around the fire pit. Our waitress was outstanding! No detail left out. Now for the food. Delicious! We shared... More

We had Saturday brunch at the Continental and were very pleased with the menu, the waitstaff, and the food. We got there before noon, and the place was empty at the time. They have a great brunch menu, and the food is top notch. TIP: Items from the normal lunch menu should be available, even if they're not on the... More

Went to bass pro shops and was starving after.. had four hours on parking so we walked the few short blocks to the continental. The food didn't disappoint and the view was great! We had huevos rancheros and chicken and waffles. Both were great but the huevos were so good and I'm not really a chorizo or black bean fan... More
