Very nice location at the marina. Thursday was $5 svedka vodka drinks so that was a good deal. Cheddar beer bacon soup very flavorful. Fish and chips very good. Plenty of food for our table of four. Very nice and relaxing. Was very crowded for a Thursday late lunch so I assume dinners are even more busy

Nostalgic revisit! The service, the food, the atmosphere - you name it - all was good, correction better than my previous visit. And this time I had my children. Their reviews were as good!

Food is good. Drunks are not cheap unless you hit happy hour. Live music every night but the weekends are jammed. No parking, no seats when it is on a Friday, Saturday.

This place gets crowded for good reason. We went just as the sun was setting and caught a very good happy hour. Drinks and food were served promptly, were a good value and the service from barkeep Kerry was terrific. Everyone's friendly, the view is fantastic. I think it would be packed if it were twice the size.

The outdoor dining is awesome! The scenery is beautiful and both bars, yes I said 2 bars are great! The seafood chowder was impeccable. I ordered a bowl and the portion was very nice. My main course choice was 2 barbecue tacos which were tasty but not what I truly wanted. I was looking for a blackened flounder sandwich. Beer... More

Saturday night date night with my love at Sailer's Return. Always a fav for us for good food, drinks, live music, and great boat, water front scenery. Coconut shrimp started the night as an app... fresh, crunchy, and large enough to take the edge off with a bottle of Le Crema Chardonnay. Followed by chicken Milanese, and chicken Marsala. Both...

Had lunch at the Sailor's Return, we sat outside overlooking the marina, so beautiful. The restaurant is dog friendly, staff would put out a bowl of water for patron's dogs. We had the BEST waiter Mike Rossi aka Jersey Mike definitely A+ service with a side of humor. Food choices and quality were excellent and prices were average for that... More

We ate outside because it was a nice night, didn't realize they have a band on the weekends, we couldn't carry on a conversation. Wait staff acted like it was our pleasure that they served us. Food was ok but over priced compared to others nearby

SailorsR, Manager at Sailor's Return, responded to this review

I want to apologize for your unsatisfactory experience at Sailor's Return. We do offer live music outside to our guests 7 days a week. The band plays in the outdoor bar area. Sailor's Return recommends reservations and guests can always request a table inside or away from the music and we do our best to accommodate such requests. Sailor's Return... More

This waterside restaurant provided great atmosphere and food. If you are going to be at the beach, this place will not disappoint. The scallops were a little meager for the price but the salmon my husband had was sufficient and tasty. A little pricey but worth it.
