“Family Fave with an Awesome View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

I come to the Beachcomber every year, and this is Seaside with an awesome view of the boardwalk and the beach! Family fun, a bar and great food. It's a must if you're on the boardwalk!

“The pizza was the only good thing, just had to fight off the seagulls for it.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

The pizza was great!! The one beer that is advertised practically all over the restaurant including a gigantic blow up can of it they did not have. The crab legs were over cooked. When the guy brought the pizza to us we had no room on the table because the cracked and eaten crab legs were still on our table he suggested we put the pizza on the table next to us. He wasn't smart enough to say "oh let me take the plate of shells away" duh! We asked for a container for our extra slices of pizza the waitress left to go get one, but came back a few minutes later to ask us what size container we wanted. We only had two slices left it should not have been that hard to just grab a box for our left over pizza. So while waiting again for the waitress to come back a seagull flew down and grabbed a slice. By that time we were so annoyed we left. The service was horribly slow and not to bright.

“Find a different restaurant”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

The food was horrible. The crab legs were cold and the tea terrible. The whole place was filthy and the music so loud, you couldn't hear the person next to you.

My boyfriend and I just visited Seaside Heights for the day. The food was ok. Not anything to wow about. Service was great though!

“This is Seaside!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

I didn't grow up in NJ, so sometimes the obsession with the Shore escapes me, but there are things I like - aside from needing a 12-step program to break an addiction to skee-ball. The Beachcomber brings much of what I like about Seaside Heights together. We got clams, oysters and shrimp with beer at an outside table on the boardwalk. Not 5-star dining, but this is what Shore dining is really about - if you don't count pizza, subs, candy, etc.
Our visit was to get a Shore day, while helping out businesses/communities still recovering from Sandy and the 2012 fire - The boardwalk and businesses south of the Beachcomber are still eerily missing.
This wasn't our only dining spot on this visit, but I'm glad it was our first. My only tiny criticism is probably not the Beachcomber's fault. If you visit for lunch before the summer season officially kicks off, not everything is open. If you want food and alcohol, you have to go to separate food counter and bar, and not all the staff are experienced (We ran into a girl operating a game down the Boardwalk who had been in the US two days). No biggie.
