Great burgers. And nice selection of beer, even though I was served the wrong one. We also had breakfast the next morning, included in our stay. It was ok.

Nothing fancy, adequate complementary breakfast. The staff, however, made it a nice visit for us. We were lucky to be there for the lobster special and we all loved our meals.

Description
The menu includes a “La Frieda” blend specialty burger which is a naturally raised and hormone free graded USDA Choice Prime beef. We have a large selection of tapas appetizers, salads and “Jersey Fresh” locally grown foods including our homemade ketchup which is made from Jersey Fresh tomatoes and is a favorite to our locals. The drink selection is extensive with 20 craft beers on tap from all over the country, great wines by the glass and only fresh ingredients for all cocktails. For the young at heart, we have milkshakes, Boylan’s soda floats and Jersey shore fries. A fantastic Sunday Brunch is served from 11:30 am every Sunday. Available for private and semi-private parties.
