We had a good dinner here while spending a night at the hotel. Very large menu with different Italian style preparations of pasta, seafood, chicken, veal and beef. The bread basket was filled with a variety of fresh and tasty breads served with olive oil with herbs. The meals were cooked well, but nothing extra special. Family style mashed potatoes were the offered side, as well as, a nice house salad. Our servers were very pleasant and helpful. The performer in the piano bar sounded good, but the music from the wedding kept overwhelming the sound as the wedding guests opened the doors frequently to use the restrooms.

Loved it! Had the Veal Piccata, it was delicious. Also tasted the chicken and shrimp Franciase. The service was awesome too and it wasn't crazy expensive.

Enjoyed drinks on the porch. Moved inside for a good dinner served by friendly staff. Followed by desert and after dinner drinks accompanied by great music by Gladstone in the bar. All in all a great night out. A frequent stop for us. Breakfast is also worth a visit.

This was our second visit to the Breakers; I noted the first time that not only were the accommodations first class, and the restaurant a five star experience, all of the help seem to anticipate your needs. Well, that has not changed, our room with a fabulous ocean view was spotlessly prepared, and the Chef's special on Monday night was an inch thick Rib-Eye steak covered with exquisitely prepared sauted mushrooms. A gravy boat filled with more mushrooms was also served, making the dinner a little above five-star, if that is possible. As for staff, they not only anticipate your needs, they do the impossible when necessary. On our third day, we found that we needed to be in a town on the New Jersey/New York border at 10:00am the next morning. As breakfast is not served until 8:00, and we needed to leave before then, it seemed that we would have a hungry trip. Not so, the staff prepared two very generous helpings of "Breakers" coffee cake with fresh strawberries, and made sure that coffee would be ready at 6:30. This type of thoughtful service is priceless. On a personal note, my only disappointment was that the Piano Lounge was not used the days we were there, we found that a nightcap in the lounge listening to their talented pianist is the perfect way to end a day at the ocean.
