Although I have eaten at Surf City on a couple of other occasions, I was not aware that there was a dress code. I was wearing a nice tank top, which I didn't think would be an issue since the weather had been in the 90's and since it's an outdoor restaurant/bar located along the marina, and not a Manhattan velvet-rope nightclub. My two friends who were with me had never been to Surf City, and I was excited to bring them there. Well, you can imagine our disappointment at being turned away. We had walked all the way from Newark Avenue and Coles Street. Needless to say, that experience of being unnecessarily turned away left a bad taste in our mouths.

No clue why they turn away people with camo bottoms but two gentlemen wearing champion basketball shorts and tank top were allowed in. They have an entire list of what is not allowed but they really dont enforce it unless the camo bottoms. Good job Surf City

Location with a lot of potential, but disappointing. Food is way below average and therefore expensive. Music doesn't fit the location and it comes over more like an American diner. There is an area with sand and chairs. No choice of alcohol at the bar.

This place isn't as bad as everyone says. Sure, the beer selection isn't great and the frozen drinks are too sweet, but it really has a great beach vibe. It's amazing that they can pull this off in Jersey City.

Attempt #1- got turned away for wearing Camo shorts. Left without arguing with the bouncers. Attempt #2- Went with 2 other people, this time with sail-boat shorts *lol*. I proceeded to ask for the reason behind the "No-Camo bottoms" rule (unless in active duty), and the bouncers had no clue. Kinda sad that their bosses wouldn't at least give them a reason as to why the rule has been set; so when they are asked, they know why they are enforcing it (other than because the boss and sign said so). - Food was not bad (lobster roll was DELISH!) the drinks were mediocre. The bartenders sucked, specially the gay one at the outside bar- rude little prick! Overall- the place is pretty nice. They could do with a bit of a revamping of the service. The nicest person was the security guy who asked us to move from the sandpit as it was being closed for the night. He was very polite! I'd definitely go again, but please improve the aforementioned by myself and other reviews. Thanks!

Ok so I can be a bit picky, but this place is my spot for sure. There is a bit for everyone. Love the fresh outside feel. The fire pits are amazing! I end up meeting someone new each time. The food is ok – to – good, definitely not gourmet, but then again if that’s what your target is, hit up a lobster steak house. During the day hours it tends to be a family spot, 3 pm on Saturday for example. During the evening hours it migrates in to a lively up beat young professionals type crowd. (ave 25-35 age gap for the most part) The drink list is also similar to that of a German Beer house, so yes suffice to say the typical “bud light or Coors only” option is not one you will be stuck with here to say the least (many options)….
