Spacious bar & grill serving American fare in a waterfront spot with outdoor seats & city views.- Google
"The fire pits are amazing!"
"Good breeze and views but More apt to call it "Family Marina City Bar."

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!

Why the heh do you call yourself surf city if you won't let guys with tank tops in. numerous, bizarre rules. You are letting women with sleeveless tops in, isn't it discrimination against men for not letting men in tank tops in? Ridiculous!

Horrible service, I was there yesterday. Not enough waiters or bartenders. The waiter took a whole hour for her to even come back to our table to ask for the check. Then another 30 to give us the bill. By then I went by front bar to ask for a drink. There were two bartenders only. One only catered to the drinks the waiters needed, And the other cut me about 16 groups of people, even after i got her attention she told me "she wasnt going to deal with this right now", Dont know her name But I can tell you she is a short, petite and of a caucasian race. Very rude and slow service, So I walked over to my girlfriend handed her the bill and cash and told her I was leaving, While leaving, the waiter came up to me and ask me where I was going. I told her " O, now your looking for us ?!" , My girlfriend has the bill and will pay for it she is over there and i turned around and left !

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)….

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.

I just moved in the area and me and buddy went to check the place out. Walked in sat at the outdoor bar (which was very sticky). A lethargic bartender took our drink order, we ordered Long Island Iced Tea (2), she placed two small plastic cups filled to the rim with ice. It was simply obvious that one could not make a decent L.I.I.T and there would be little to no alcohol, so I stopped her in her tracks and we ordered 2 cokes. We then proceeded to place our food order I ordered fish & Chips, "we have no fish and chips today" said the bartender. I asked how the BBQ ribs were, she said very good. So I placed an order of a large slab, with another order of cod fish, and some onion rings. The food arrived "COLD", the fish had a very "Fishy Smell" and was terribly greasy. I sent the ribs back and asked for a burger instead. The bartender was not to happy. The burger arrived and it was good, not great. While waiting for the burger, the bartender threw out my unfinished coke and did not ask if I would like a refill. No one else was eating at the bar (that I could see); that should have been my 1st clue. Others at the bar said they go to drink and never eat there. The place is dirty, with bad food, and service with an attitude. I will not be back..

Sorry, a 1 star service gets a 1 star rating.. Bad management, worse bouncers. If management is reading this, you really need to figure out who you have bouncing and the types of things they suggesting to customers. And besides, children at a place that has a bouncer? This establishment needs some thought put into it.. Currently have no clue.
