“Bar food”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Hi point is one of those places people rave about. The portions are huge, the food is decent in a fried and covered in sauce way, the starter salad is actually very good and the bar is usually hopping. I don't like seafood but people talk about the bisque like it's manna from heaven. It's a little noisy at times but it's a bar. Wait staff are great, bartenders remember your name and the sandwiches are really good.

“Nothin' but Bisque Baby!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

If you can only get one thing at this place get the Lobster Bisque. It is rich, but not too rich. It is creamy, but not too creamy. If you are on a diet, go run or walk a couple of miles up and down the White Horse Pike, then come back for the Bisque. Rest of the menu is okay, but the Bisque is a must!

“Great place for good food!”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 via mobile

We had the Thursday special of prime rib, pub fries, and drink for $12. We were surprised by the quality and seasoning. It was trivia night and the place was bustling. Everyone was friendly and the tvs were tuned to various sports- hockey, baseball, and basketball. A very lively place with an extensive menu and daily specials.

“Take out Dinner”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Over the years i have eaten there and have take out from Hi Point. Love their food. The crab
cakes are really good and their crab Bisque is excellent. The baked stuffed Flounder topped with crab imperial excellent. If you just want something small the high point special is very good, its a cheese steak on toasted roll with bacon. it comes with pickle and potato chips. Although i do not like their pizzas or their sauce for their pasta. But all and all very good place to eat.

“It is a locals best kept secret”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Looks like an ordinary bar, but it is not! We take our family (kids 10 yrs old) there 2-4 times a month. Portions are great and never had a bad meal there! There spicy creamy crab bisque is to die for! Don't let the appearance of just "a bar" scare you away from here! It is on the corner of a main intersection, so you wont get lost trying to find it in town. If you take White Horse Pike (Rt 30) out of Atlantic City, you will pass this. Stop in! You wont be disappointed.
