They could have played some music.
The server seemed disinterested in our table. The restaurant was not crowded or busy but the service was still extremely slow. The bathrooms are run down and a lot of the fixtures are broken. We ordered the veggie burger, lobster sandwich and fries. The food itself was good but nothing special. The beer was a little too warm for our preference.
It was good. And a warm day
The hostess didn’t greet us right away and wasn’t friendly once she did. Many of the beers on the menu they handed us were unavailable bc they are seasonal beers (maybe update the menu?) We ordered crab fries when he came back said they were out of crab (!) but gave us fries on the house...entrees were good. Server was friendly and apologetic...just expected better
This was my first visit to this establishment. I was seated quickly. Our waiter did not come back to check on us fast enough. We were also charged twice on our credit card.
First time there, but it won't be our last. Beautiful view, delicious food, great service!
Seafood platter was enough for two! Wanted to go back the next day (their last day for the season), but knew we couldn't get a reservation. Now we have to wait until next year.
Wish we had discovered it sooner. Highly highly highly recommend!
great ambiance great energy horrible food
Food doesnt taste fresh. Drinks arnt strong at all on purpose to make you buy a $2 shooter with every drink. The only good thing about this place is the view.
We were the first ones there, and it was clear that they were not ready for us. There was no toilet paper to be found anywhere in the entire restroom, and it took over 30 minutes for our food to come which wasn't hot.
Great place to have dinner and fun with friends.
The ambiance hands down is beautiful if you enjoy water views. Definitely visit Surf City Bar on a warm day/evening if you plan to dine outdoors. Free parking in Jersey City is a plus. The food was mediocre. It's a new establishment. Hopefully, next year they will revamp the menu.
It was too chilly to dine out by the water. The restroom was beyond nasty. We were very disappointed. Photos of the restroom says everything.
I have been there twice the first time wad great the second I continually had to search for my waitress
It was a great experience..I wouldn’t mind returning for another gathering
I was very disappointed at Surf City.
I understand none of us have control over weather, however, the restaurant would benefit from HEAT LAMPS - especially when the temperature dips at night. It was mid 60s - the first night of cool temps in September 2020. Server suggested the Lobster Bisque - 10 minutes later she returned - they ran out... Server suggested Clam Chowder - 10 minutes later she returned - they ran out... Server suggested Crab Fries.... she brought to the table and said I had received the last order... I guess I could be more understanding if it were later in the night... but I had a 7:30 p.m. reservation! How can you run out of soup on your VERY LIMITED SEAFOOD MENU?
Very disappointed first time...
Staff didn’t check on us not once, seem to be over worked but food was good
The food and drinks were just subpar. There was no seasoning on my sandwich. The frozen drinks tasted chemically and had no alcohol. The location is really nice though.
When I book this restaurant on OpenTable it had asked me if there were any special occasions and I selected yes which was my wife’s birthday. There was no mention of a birthday nor did anyone acknowledge it at all throughout the whole dinner. It also did not mention that IDs are required at the door even to eat dinner which one of our party did not have their license as it was in her other pocketbook and they almost did not let us in. This is definitely last time I’ll book this dive..
Service was horrible. Fold for the price not worth it.
First time there and my salad came with a hair, so I personally won’t be back.
The hostess was not welcoming or helpful to accommodate our large party even though we made a reservation. Thankfully our server made up for her rudeness and incompetence.
Last hurrah of summer. No Labor Day plans and a birthday coming. I loved that the reservation allowed us dockside views. So much more convenient than a ride to the shore or City Island. I will be back.
Surf City was fun, so much fun that our group will be going back before the end of its Season.
I made a reservation that was not honored because they were already "at capacity". It was a birthday celebration.
This the 2nd time this week I went and really enjoyed myself ❤️
Always nice to eat on the water.
Don't expect something fancy but don't miss this place.
This was a great spot with great music and food... we did make a reservation on open table and when we arrived they did not have our reservation ... they still accommodated us
great place will be there again this weekend . Thank you
Love the ambiance and beach feel. Felt like i was in another state. Food was good and service was ok.
Great location and the good vibes.
However, it was very windy so, hold on to your food and drinks because they will spill over!!!
Exactly what a relaxing Sunday calls for.
Terrible service. Would not recommend people visit this establishment. Waiter service was nonexistent and they got our order wrong.
Food was terrible. Microwaved rubber essentially.
Ambiance was cool.
Recommended for drinks ONLY. Good bar.
Our waiter Matthew i believe was his name was just okay
Great place to hang out to eat and drink. Views were amazing, wait staff was great. Food and drinks were good as well, very filling, I couldn’t eat all my food. Only thing is the bathrooms need to be better kept. Overall I enjoyed the place
Love it here more recommend to more ppl
Great services and the location has precaution sign to keep distances.
Nothing was available on the menu. The drinks had to make myself. I went for my birthday and it rained and they did nothing to make me help feel comfortable
The food was horrible the cheese burger and lobster rolls were bland. The drinks were watery the crab fries had too much Obay seasoning. It was waste of $115.
Great location and good food and service
Great scenery and the service was great. Food was just ok in my opinion but the drinks are good
