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

We enjoyed several meals at The Breakers. The salads at lunch were delicious, the caprese at dinner is enough for 2or 3, the seafood was well prepared and service was excellent. We had a window seat for 2 dinners. The piano bar was intimate and enjoyable.

We came for an anniversary celebration of a Saturday evening. The setting was excellent and the service impeccable. The food was above average with ample portions. Surprisingly, given the location the prices were fairly good, not inflated for the ocean view. The atmosphere was relaxed and spacing between tables was generous. Afterwards we sat on the verandah for drinks. This... More

Food was delicious but the main course took forever to be served. We dined on a Wednesday night and did not expect to be at dinner for 3 hours.

Made reservations a month in advance for 6. It look an hour to be seated, and the delays went on from there. I was quite embarrassed in front of my guests. Food OK, but nothing outstanding.

I sit on the porch, look at the ocean, sip champagne and munch on shrimp ... Doesn't get much better, and whether you are dressed as a wedding guest or beach visitor, you're treated the same ~ first class. The wait staff people are delightful; their focus is service, not tips, which is nice. It is also nice to be... More

Yes, the view is nice, but I think they are not serving food that is worthy of the view. The nice starter of two slices of pizza makes up for the average bread somewhat. I had the artichoke appetizer, which was tasty, though not very well presented. The sprig of parsley does not make the melted cheese look any prettier.... More
