We live at the beach during the summer and this is our first year that we tried the Winddrift's main dining room, since the revenovations. We usually sit at the outside bar for cocktails but we have never dined.

We came off the beach on a windy day to get a snack and sat in the part of the dining room that faces the ocean. The frameless patio doors were open and it was just beautiful! We could have been anywhere in the world! The food was good and priced competitively with beach prices.

We have been back several times to enjoy the view and atmosphere!

One of my favorite places in the Stone Harbor/Avalon area to grab drinks and dinner! Their brick oven pizza is very good, I've tried several and The Giuseppe is my favorite (garlic, mozzarella, artichoke, eggplant, peppers, and prosciutto). The sushi is also good here, very fresh! If you are at the shore on a Tuesday in the summer I recommend going to Wing Night. Get there EARLY so you can get a table, my favorite seat for Wing Night is upstairs and outside. You have a beautiful view of the ocean and if you can manage to grab the tables with couches you have ample space and the crowd around you does not affect your experience at all. The bars here have just a great beachy vibe that I love and always enjoy all summer long at shore!

Several friends told us that the Windrift Restaurant was much better this summer, so we decided to try it again after a two year hiatus. The cocktails were good, as was the salad. The rolls had been in the warmer drawer too long...very dry. The green beans were swimming in butter, and the baked potato was undercooked. The crab dishes were average at best....not worth the price.
One would expect seafood of better quality from a restaurant oceanside.

This place was nice to sit outside on the deck. The food was average, but the lobster bisque was probably the best I've ever had. Big chunks of real lobster.
