REVIEWS OF River Rock Restaurant & Marina Bar IN New Jersey

Andrew Harper

This was my first time, my wife and I was with good friends, I had fish and chips and my wife had the Classic New York Ruben and everything was hot and fresh and came quickly. If you like football there are plenty of T.V.'s very nice atmosphere.

Kathleen Wall

Very relaxed atmosphere, good service and good food.

Joe Basham

Went at night for a few drinks. A bit crowded. Rude patrons, mostly the twenty somethings. Totally different from the day time and dinner crowd. I recommend it for evening drinks/happy hour but not for mature people at night.

Service was extremely slow, food was luke warm, bad organization, but the MGR did discount the bill. Will take alot to get mento try again.

Colleen Conrad

Great liquor store w very friendly staff

Samantha Rossi

Good for appetizers

Joyce Bell

We were there for a birthday party. The birthday party was on the pirate ship. Such a fun experience! The "pirates" were hilarious and great with the children!

John Shields

Food was okay, and it’s a really cool marina, but the restaurant/bar was overall dirty and crowded. Wait staff was too busy (around 8pm on a Friday) to handle the people eating and the bar crowd at the same time. Food service was slow, so we ended up listening to house music while eating a cheeseburger. Ok

Karen Flannery

Great outdoor tiki bar

Emmanuel Pena

Sea food is practically raw and unseasoned

Sydney Cunningham

Very nice employees. Accomodating. Jumping atmosphere (great live music on Saturday). Food was absolutely delicious! Visited for 1st time on a date with hubby. We will return.

Randy Ward

Evelyn and I just closed on our house and we are celebrating with lunch at River Rock!!

William Tilstra

A very busy place. Always crowded which adds to the fun. Outside sessions and a beach bar right on the river. Food is good service is good.

Sue Paerels

It was my first time here and I'll go back. We sat outside overlooking the water which I love. We ordered sushi which was very good, plenty of sushi options! Plenty of other food items too including pizza, fish & chips, something for just about anyone. Very large restaurant and also has a sports bar. I will definitely be back!

Mark Drexler

Over a hour to get 2 pizza,and a chicken sandwich. Service was slow.Waitress hardly checked on was loud,had bingo going on.Seems they were more interested in moving people on and off the deck,then those inside.Wont be going back here.

David Dunn

Great spot, and the food and service matched!

Randy Allen

Good food, friendly staff, and the music outside by the river by "Just Killin' Time" was great!

Eric Teschke

Had a good meal, place was packed so bit of wait time on every phase.

Angela Grella

Beautiful atmosphere, service and food.

Greggory Hasselbring

We went for dinner with a group of 6. Restaurant was busy and had a small wait for inside seating. Waitress took our drink order. Then we ordered appetizers. Later ordered dinner. Was a wait for everything. Drinks. Longer wait for appetizers. Dinner took just under an hour. And we only ordered 2 pizzas, fish taco, chicken wrap, and chicken sandwich. Waitress wasn't very apologetic for the long waits. Maybe she was having a bad day. Also extremely loud and hard to have a conversation without reading lips.

Ricardo Bodkin

Went here for a birthday and it was very nice. The wait staff was on top of drinks and requests very promptly. I only walked through the bar area and briefly saw people dancing in a designated area but it looked like a good time~ crowded lol but fun.

Barbara Fischer

Maria bartender is the .most outstanding at how and what she does servicing the whole inside a d outside with drinks and food and more awesomeness thank you your are the reasons we come

Amy M. Toman

Had a nice Sunday brunch here with friends. The location is perfect; it's right on the water in Brick. The interior is nice and relatively simple. The brunch offerings are pretty standard, with eggs and bacon and potatoes (great for our Irish ladies' gathering). The best option, we all agreed, is the corned beef hash, which seemed to have been homemade. It had a few chunks of corned beef, and the overall taste was excellent. Oh, and the drinks were great too. I had a Bloody Mary and a mimosa, and both were wonderful and even a bit strong. I'll definitely come back for a brunch during the summer, when the views out on the marina should be lovely.

Anasatsios Kalaitzidis

Nice outside bar inside is a little too loud but all all it's nice place to just hang with some friends and eat decent food.

Jeff Glass

The scallops wrapped in bacon and the cajun steak bites are awesome


Maybe we just happened to be there on the wrong night. During our relatively brief visit we witnessed two fights. The bar tenders were pretty friendly though, and make a decent drink.

Ian Hefyer

Food and service was awesome

Lewis Hill

Very good casual eating fantastic service

Dianne Reynolds

Great food and prices...thin crust pizza, sitting outside was beautiful

larry deutsch

Crowded but accommodating. Food was great. I recommend sitting out back on the water

shabnam Z hatami

Great place to hang out

Loretta Roe

Great staff. Great food. Fun place!

Joshua Montalvo

Awesome bar. Great place to go after a day of boating.

Diane Bottino

The food is really good, the waiting staff was prompt and the night I was there a live band was playing. There is outside seating and heat lamps. It's on the water and really nice ambience

David Legemaat

Was here for a wedding after party. Overall a great time. Drink prices were reasonable. Only complaint was IDing everyone even if they were obviously old enough to be in the establishment.

Laura Pflug

We docked our friends' boat and dived into some good food and beverages. They have a great indoor and outdoor dining with a tropical island feel. Live music on Sunday afternoons. Service for beverages was a little slow, but otherwise was good. Will definitely love to come back here by land or sea to get some more rocking food by the river!

Ali Musaoglulari

Great atmosphere and great food. The restaurant is right on the water and feels like it it's in a beach town. The view of all of the boats are great and it's a very lively environment.


Nice restaurant, a tad noisy. Food was good but needed salt. Why seafood would need salt, I don't know. Bit it did. Moderately prices.

Lawrence Dimino

Nice views and good buffet brunch

Jeff C.

We have not been here for many years since it is usually packed and way too loud. Tonight we decided to give it a try. It was not busy and we were brought to a table right away. Though this was not packed at all, it was still very loud. We sat there for 30 minutes without someone coming over. No drinks... No "do you need more time"... Literally nothing. There were two waitresses in our area and neither gave us the time of day even though we tried. We packed up and mentioned it to the hostess as we left. She did not seem surprised and had no empathy towards our situation. Kinda just said we can have a nice night. Won't be going back here again.

eileen fiorentino

Love this place! Great food, atmoshere loud, so don't go if you're looking for a quiet evening! Fun place

NJ Guide

Renee Boyd

Great place great servers thanks Lauren and Clair


I remember years ago this was the old Petersons. Haven't been there in forever after living out of state. Went for dinner with some friends on a Saturday night & decided to stay for some old time fun. Wrong!!! It started out well but as the evening progressed things took a dark turn. I had beer spilled on me, was pushed into the bar and toes mashed by anonymous shoes. The best part of the evening was meeting & talking to Cliff on the security staff. A gentle, massive man. I gave River Rock one star out of my own disappointment. The food was pretty good and I would probably go back on a weekend afternoon for an outside lunch. I think my toes will be safe then.

Katie Smith

Love sitting outside on the water to eat! Great sushi!

Rich Breslin

Beautiful river views half-price Pizza

Wes Taplin

Food was ok but hardly worth the wait, servers are good but could be more attentive

Deb Moran

Super fun place bv rear atmosphere and delicious food

Joshua Matthews

Excellent food, decent selection and if you can't decide, you can always fall back on a delicious bar pie. They always have drink specials and their massive TV wall will keep you entertained.

Blu Xo

Best bar pies and margaritas! Great outside escape! Your Guaranteed A Great Night Here!

Alberto Albino

I had a great time food and service was great live music great environment!!!!

David Stupar

A great place to grab a drink and sit outside to watch the water. Great service!

Mitch Jackson

Family friendly. Great atmosphere. Food was delicious. Very friendly staff. The view of the water is nice. Great place to hang with the boys or for a first date. Portions are well worth the reasonable pricing and the menu selection went on for days.

diane merenda

Always great sushi and pizza. We always have Roseanne as our server and she is wonderful. Definitely an asset to the River Rock

John Doe

This place is awesome. The seating on the water is great. If the highway wasn't next to it would be even better. The food here is excellent and so is the service. I highly recommend this place and will be returning many times to come.

Patricia Maslen

Great outside on the deck, to noisy inside by the bar

Thor Nilsen

Just quick brunch a bit rushed but good food

Samantha Davidson

The bacon wrapped scallops are a must. Love the outside beach bar.

Tamela Strasser

Great and very unique presentation of bacon wrapped scollops and spinach dip. Sushi good. Burger well done when I ordered rare

Russell Jurczyk

Good food,friendly service & staff,night life & music

Elke Lopez-Rodriguez

I'd give you more stars but I'm only allotted the 5. Every item we ordered was amazing and our server was friendly and quickly attentive. We ordered two dozen oysters, the coconut shrimp, the avocado sashimi tartare and the drunken clams! Each more amazing than the next. Kudos to the chef and staff!!!

Kelly Love

Great atmosphere, good food, great staff! They have lots of fun events and the view at the back isn't so bad either!!

leslie vail

The atmosphere at the River Rock is fun! They have menu that can suit everyone in the family-sushi, clams, chicken, beef,'s right on the water to boot!

Joy Lejda

Nice atmosphere, overlooking the water. Big menu with many choices for everyone, including the kids.

Kathy Tully

Love the atmosphere ,food and Maria paulis

Kim Vargo

Great place to sit outside and have lunch or dinner, overlooking the Manasquan River. Tables on their deck or on the beach sand surrounding the outdoor bar. Lots of music inside year-round and outside in summer.

Franceska Vasiliadis

Dont even bother with this place

Glen Mc Call

Nice place. This was my first time here. A bit on the noisy side when busy, which it was, you are better off sitting outside on the deck if possible. You can then look out over the water. I had the chicken coconut salad, which was very tasty!

Tempestt Ortiz

I look the view, food, atmosphere! It's just top notch place! Better parking would be cool, but it almost makes it more unique! Just good times EVERYTIME I had been

Premium Dentistry

Went for a late dinner on Wednesday in which we had to wait for a table to open up for almost an hour even though we saw tables available and informed the host a few times and she said we needed to wait. I ordered sushi and it was just okay average, almost like what you expect from a commercial supermarket sushi. I had a martini which was not prepared correctly and all i tasted was straight alcohol as if it were a shot. I don't see myself giving this place another try.

Michael Haggerty

River Rock is Awesome!! Great food, drinks & atmosphere. Maria is a very good bartender, and is always on top of everything.

Linda Cereghini

I wrongly assumed having dinner outside on the patio area of the River Rick would be relaxing on a summer night. Maybe it's just me but I really didn't enjoy eating in a sand pit . Add to that sand fleas or some of gnat flying around. There are much cleaner ways to achieve a laid back, casual Jersey Shore experience. Added insult...the food was mediocre at best. My Greek salad and dressing lacked any real flavor. This is a definite cross off for any future visit.

Jackie Class

The service was excellent!!! We had Jake as our server. The food was great and so was the atmosphere. Highly recommend

Ben Brown

Great Joisey restaurant. Go there, enjoy. You will

susan bisbing

Love this place. Went last year and had to go again this year.

Carmen Jerez

Such a messy places tables always dirty Slow staff

Don Windrem

Nice bar right on the river that normally has live entertainment all summer long. Wednesday is ladies night and they have some really good specials. Food is good, bar pizzas were very good. Parking can be difficult at times.

Omar Tamimi

If you haven't visited River Rock in the recent past you would be surprised at how much it has improved. Much improved menu options and well prepared. Service was attentive and cheerful on an extremely busy night. Bar was packed but bartenders were quick to get to patrons.

Al Slowinski

I always like this place great atmosphere inside and out

marisa kos

Mahi tacos were delicious. I was there to see a vocalist recital. Glad I went because I never would think to come here for lunch but it was really nice. Staff was nice a d although we were Indoors there is a nice deck and sand outdoor area. I would come back.

Richard Ball

Great place on the water. Gets crowded.

April Shevlino

It was very warm inside. They need to fix their ac.

Jack Buckley

Great time on the Pirate Ship. Then pizza.

Ed McCormick

We checked out the outside bar for drinks. It's a pleasant atmosphere right on the river. The drinks were fine. We'll have to try inside soon.

Patrick Amato

Quaint place service is great fun fun fun atmosphere plenty of entertainment great location what more can you ask for

Michelle Wilson

Was wonderful . nice Nite out with the family sitting outside on the heated deck. The food was good. Our server was very good. I will definitely be going back. I highly recommend. I have told some folks already.

Lisa Hunt

Great party at this location the girls that took car of me were great and everyone enjoyed the food

David Bishop

My co-worker had a retirement/birthday party there. We ate nachos, cheese sticks,pizza and wings. Everything was good. The booze was flowing freely and everyone had a good time. Service was great & food was hot. They allowed the family to decorate the tables that we used, which was very nice of the River Rock. Great time was had by all.

joe ganzy

Great bar a lot of fun tons of people having an awesome time

Krystine Quick

They have everything under the sun to choose from on their menu! My husband got Mako shark and he said it was melt in your mouth!! Great service even on football sunday!

Robin Baine

Love the beach bar and live music. Great way to spend a summer evening.

Drew Cifrodelli

Tired and worn out. Great waterfront views of creek

Anastasia Braucht

Great happy hour and even better bartenders!

Savage Banana303

The calamari was the best ever you need to try also the dynamite wrap was good

Urban Elite

Rock n roll party time..

paola mendez

Great drinks. My steak was a bit mediocre

Stanley Osborne

The music is loud, even for a sports bar. Decent menu but out of our party of 3, every dish was way under seasoned. Someone wrote on Yelp that their burgers would probably be a better choice over their fancier dishes. I'd have to agree.

John Bishop

Great food and atmosphere. Of course the alcohol doesn't hurt. Unless you want it to. Haha

Richard Kamin

Very nice waterside stop, good food and service

Carl Henar

Lots of fun, great food, live music and an outdoor beach type area.

Alan Garrone

Good food & sports.

Vicky Nielsen

Great food great music

Gary Blasi

Enjoyed the food, live music, patio bar, outside tables. On the water!

Cheryl P

Good food, nice staff. Enjoy the view on the outdoor deck.

Sue McLaughlin

Great place. Food atmosphere eating on the water fabulous

Matthew Berner

I've only been here twice but I've had good experiences both times. I'm not THRILLED by the food and service but the overall feel more than compensated for it. Quality bar food and pretty good seafood. I don't drink but there happy hour specials seem pretty good. Fun summer spot.

Michael Tuley

Nice outdoor dining area and good food

Sym Cardnel

Trash place n crowd. Belongs in Seaside for shore!!!

Malina K

Ambiance was a nice bay view but service was little slow, and the lobster sandwich had about a tablespoon of a chop lobster on it with more lettuce & tomatoes. The chips lacked seasonings but were crispy & not oily. The mahi taco was okay.

David Furniss

Large restaurant, large parking, large menu, easy access. Good food, slightly pricy but worth it. Good service. Accommodated group of 13 - six adults, seven children ages eight to fourteen - with no problems. Would return again and again and recommend it!

peter wilcoxen

Nice,have everything.

Daisha Farkas

Other then the bartender serving drunk people and denying sober people I love river rock

Christine Stewart

We loved River Rock! The waitress Gabrielle (2) was wonderful and the view is fantastic! Food and drinks were delicious! We will be back!

Carrie SillETTI

The snobby hostesses and the wanna be grow up who obviously thinks she all that, may wanna check on respecting her elders and get the pole out of her A$$

John Domanico

Good food. Great location.


Good pizza , sushi and a really big indoor bar set up. Tiki bar outside is fun in the summer!

Catherine Baker-May

Love the location. Wait staff was very friendly and upbeat. Food was AVERAGE.

Lorie Susan

It was good. Lost my gift card there that I won in an auction at my work Holiday party and wasnt found. :-(

laura cinquegrana

Great food, nice views

James Doriety

Great place to sit outside and enjoy a few drinks.

Pedro Ortiz

Great had a

Nicholas Koontz

Great place to drink and hang out with friends or family.

Shamus Williams

This place has a nice balanced atmosphere. You'll enjoy many drink options and a solid array of menu choices. The shepherd's pie was excellent.

Phillip Rizzo

Service was very very poor never received our appetizers very disappointing sorry to say waiter suck

Kristian quick

Got the habanero mako shark. It was literally melt in your mouth. I've never had such good mako outside of my own home. The service was fantastic. Our server Keith was excellent and cheerful. A smile on his face everytime he checked up on us. The atmosphere was vibrant and energetic. All football games were on all the TVs. Everyone wearing their team jersey. And nobody bickering with another. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. I live about 45 min north and this place is well worth the trip. Not to mention the portions were spot on for the price point. Definitely don't feel like I got the short end on this one. I can't wait to get back.

Wm Horsfield

Great food with super service and waiters . Nice atmosphere and plenty of room inside and out overlooking the marina.

Ryan Klockner

Sitting out by the water enjoying a cold beer and delicious pizza... what more do i need?

Robert Gallant

I enjoyed the food. They had a band. It was good. Loud but good. Nice water view.

Susan Lockward

Be careful when making a reservation that your table is not next to a trash can where every server and bus person throws glass bottles into it causing everyone at your table to jump each time. It is somewhat loud in the dining area but the constant sound of bottles crashing into each other in the can right next to our table ruined our lunch. Aside from that the food was good.

Alex Olsen

Always delicious. Great location. Liquor store is close by. The staff (although always busy) is extremely kind and put up with a lot of Bs so it's impressive how they are able to keep their cool. Great place though -food is always decent. The pizza is sick. Not a lot down that way but that is definitely a place to go.

tonka DeAsio

The food was excellent the service was great people are very friendly and very nice to go there what words are and I will tell my friends all about it


Great place to grab a drink and listen to good music. Some good dishes

Jeffrey Tech

Excellent food, great atmosphere! Try to get outdoor seating if the weather is nice.

Carol Mcgee

Vincent J. Sanzone, Jr. Esquire

Great dock and dine spot. Dock master friendly and helpful.

Shelia Emery

Delicious food, fun atmosphere. Our waitress was very friendly and didnt wait long for our meals. We sat outside which was lovely. Band playing can still be enjoyed from deck.

Ike King

Waited 15 mins before any service! Complained 3xs to front desk before we had any service. Food was ok but views from desk awesome.

Johnathan Bartee

A very nice restaurant. Waitress was amazing. They host event nights which is a nice chase of pace from the average restaurant. All of those are easy upsides. Downside was the kitchen staff. We ordered a tuna melt minus the melt (a tuna fish sandwich) that came out toasted and a chicken wrap which came out on the wrong wrap flavor. Food was good though. I will come back This is a place that deserves a frequent visit even with the hiccup or two.

Krystal Ann

I go all the time! Great atmosphere. Great specials for football season TV's everywhere. Everything on the menu I've tried is good

Martin Schlager

Good service and food at reasonable prices. Nice view of the harbor.

Rita Murray

Good busy spot on the water Good company and good food.

Lorraine Gentile

Great Fish etc.yummmy....nice place for vacation visit:)
