Blue Rock Cafe in Cliffwood Beach, NJ?

I found a link to this place and wondered if anyone has been here? I always wondered if this town had any good fish places since it is loaded with marinas.

  1. I've been there twice. Once I had the biggest best fried shrimp. The second time I had the biggest worst RAW fried shrimp and the RUDEST waitress ever. Maybe third time's a charm?

    1. I went there for the first time a couple of months ago. I ordered the 16 ounce ribeye steak and it was delicious. I also sampled the Manhattan clam chowder. Unfortunately it was extremely salty. The place can get a bit loud as it has a very active bar scene on the other side of the wall (actually more like a partition) that divides the bar and dining sections.

      I personally would go back as the food was good. But if you're looking for fine dining with cloth napkins etc etc it would be best to move along.

      1. This place is the worst. The owner, Dina, is the rudest person you would ever meet. A nother bartender constantly sits on the bar, feet on the coolers & fiddles with her hair (all day long!), very gross & a definite health code violation. Soggy crab legs & most items overpriced. DO NOT BOTHER!
