Family reunion lunch...easy location and within walking distance of any spot in Ocean Grove. Good, not great, food. A shared table with a woman with pressured speech. This is NJ after all.

Since our B&B had mediocre breakfast tried this place - good food, fun atmosphere, and owner was contributing to Ocean Grove beautification. We will go back.

My wife and I stopped in and had a great breakfast that included wonderful crab cakes. Everything was fresh and the service was exceptional. We will make the Starving Artist our stop when in the area.

The Starving Artist is a refreshing "down the shore" place for breakfast and lunch. Have a meal seated on the breezy outdoor porch area. Say hello to Arnold, the owner. They have wonderful summer musical productions on select evenings, too. Great food, reasonably priced. Well...More
