We were recently guests at the Majestic Hotel in Ocean Grove and attended a dinner show event there called “A Night at the Copa”. What an awesome experience! A five piece band which included a female vocalist. They were unbelievably talented and engaging, playing a...More

The scallops are fantastic!! I ate here with my family and then had my wedding here. For my wedding the hors d'oeuvres were out of this world! My guests are still talking about them 3 weeks later!

Actually, eating on the porch was lovely with a view of the ocean, but I really did not care for my meal. Because of it's proximity to our hotel, I would try it again.

A wonderful meal -- wonderful service! It's pricey, but well worth it. I had the grilled salmon, rice pilaf, and fresh string beans. No room for dessert. BYOB.

We just enjoyed a superb meal at Bia, sitting on the porch on a lovely evening. The scallops were the best I've ever had, tender, lightly glazed, and cooked to perfection. My husband's salmon dish, one of the specials, was also delicious. We would definitely...More
