Not many restaurants offer a 'lobster tower' (base, crab, lobster) any more, but thankfully "Whispers" still does, and it's especially well presented and prepared. While the hotel is a 'bring your own wine' venue, the waiters make sure everyone's glass is poured and refilled as...More

Nice quiet winter evening in Spring Lake NJ. BYOB in this quaint B&B and restaurant for that special event or date night. We had a lovely dinner and enjoyed every bite. It is a bit pricey but worth it.

The place sounds like a gentleman's club. It certainly is not. Upscale food, served in a Victorian setting with capable service. Sean was on point, neither intrusive or absent. He anticipated everything, something you don't find often. Food was delicious, buratta , chicken and filet....More
