The food here was really delicious (I'm still thinking about the shrimp sauteed in white wine) and the service was terrific! The decor could use an update with - pastel colors with white washed, sea shell back chairs, a white grand piano, and etched calla lilies on the glass of the bar. We ate at night in November so we...

As a family we had several different selections. Steaks, Sea food and Italian dishes. Every one was pleased with their choice which came to the table at one time and was hot if the food needed to be. We actually had breakfast and dinner at the restuarant.

Fine dinning formal atmosphere, with many tables having a view of the ocean. The food was nicely presented and served.

We had our dinner here - delicious chicken marsala and my husband had veal parm which was also excellent. We would have preferred a seat with a better ocean front view. Waiter was very nice and accommodating.

Once again recommended by Ocean House Bed & Breakfast. It was a perfect recommendation to celebrate a birthday. Service & food scrumptious as was the atmosphere & scenery.

We chose this restaurant from the tripadvisor review but were afraid it might be a typical shore place with lots of fried seafood options. What a pleasant surprise! The dining room was tasteful and even the customers were mature and nicely dressed. The wait staff were exceptionally attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. My manhattan was so good I opted for a...

Had a great dinner with colleagues while in town for business! I had the Chicken Marsala, with a garden salad as well as mashed potatoes served family style. Everything was delicious and the service was excellent! Definitely a great restaurant! 👍🏻👍🏻

Beautiful inside and out . The Breakers is a well known attraction at Spring Lake-Happy Hour is the best . Can be casual -I'd advise a reservation.

We couldn't enjoy the beautiful afternoon sitting outside because after Labor Day they don't have outside seating, very disappointing we still do have many nice days in September. The people were friendly and the martinis were good at a reasonable $10 price. I got the shrimp wrap which I do have to say was lacking much flavor but the shrimp... More
