“Good Boardwalk Hangout”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013

My boyfriend and I spent a few days over the weekend in Seaside Heights as a get away and stopped by Spicy's everyday. We always sat at the bar and had drinks and appestizers. Service was good and bartenders were very friendly and welcoming of us coming from Mississippi. They had live music one afternoon which was very entertaining. Better for appetizers and drinks than a full meal. We will definately be back as it became one of our usual hangout spots.

“NO ENTREE ~~~NO SEAT”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

Went to Spicy's on the boardwalk to have appetizers and a drink . Went upstairs and asked for a table. We were told that if we were not having a complete entree we had to sit at the bar. Needless to say we left. Not very hospitable to tell people they need to sit at the bar. We probably would have spent more on appetizers and a coctail then the entree and a glass of water..

“Good food, great views, but a little pricey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

I have been here a few times. The place has a nice upstairs bar, and tables that overlook the boardwalk/beach/ocean. Great place to view fireworks, btw. The food portions are huge, so i you can split a meal, so much the better, as buying two dinners and throwing 1/2 of each away is costly--I do wish they has smaller portions and smaller prices. I wouldn't get a headache watching my GF order the steak quasadilla and leaving 1/2 of it!
