Spacious bar & grill serving American fare in a waterfront spot with outdoor seats & city views.- Google
"Food was not bad (lobster roll was DELISH!"
"Good breeze and views but More apt to call it "Family Marina City Bar."

I have been to Surf City quite a few times since they opened where Sand Bar used to be back in the days. This is a great spot with some decent water views. The place is actually huge which is divided into sub sections which include an indoor section & self service area. The whole idea about this place is a spot which has a chill atmosphere. Now coming to not so good things about this place. I have had food here few times , I can say with confidence that food must be avoided here. They offer sub par , tasteless bar food at not so good prices. The service at the bar and other sections leaves much to be desired. With no music or any kind of live music this place loses it's charm after you come here few times. Basically a decent spot which has potential to be an awesome spot.

Lively spot for an outdoor drink. Overlooks the harbor harbor. The beer selection is dismal and the food is basic fried stuff but the views make up for all that.

This is a cool spot. I like the fire pits and how they set up all the chairs/tables in the sand. Its just a nice set up.

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!

When the advertisements say "megabar" and they check our IDs at the door, I don't expect to find toddlers and children running around in a herd and screaming while I try to enjoy my cocktail and have a conversation with friends. In addition, the staff was not at all friendly and seemed hungover. Surf City is a cool concept and I have always enjoyed my experience at Zeppelin Hall (same ownership) but the experience here was not the same.

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.

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
