Great place for a casual meal although it can be crowded. The food is very good. It's on Route 71 and easily accessible from Spring Lake, Sea Girt and other places. Great burger and a beer place with more.

Typical bar food, but they get my vote for being open after Super Storm Sandy, when neither they nor the rest of town had power. Cooking pizza in brick oven, eating by candlelight - one of the best memories of the Storm.

I have been here a few times and have never been disappointed. I have had the grilled chicken sandwich, burger and pizza here and it has all been delicious! The one time I went they had a 2 for 1 burger night, which was great!...More

Always enjoyed it as The Porch, and although we miss the great "cordon bleu bites" appetizer they had, the Tap Room had plenty of other fine options to choose from. Lively crowd, and plenty of TVs to keep track of current sports.

With a large bar occupying the center, it is what you expect. Good juicy burgers and basic bar food, but some of the entree specials are quite good and beyond basic bar food. Only negative is the high noise level due to hardwood floors and...More

The place is grimy. The staff is neat and clean, but come on, clean the corners and restrooms better. The menu is typical bar fare. Lots of food. Nothing special. Good TV sports coverage.

Cool pub style dinner. Burgers were great, service was good. It's a little loud at times, but, still a fun time.
