Casey C. - I've had two really good meals here recently. The veal chop was outstanding, and the rib eye wasn't far behind. That said, the quality of the food is really great. I think it is one of the better places in and around Brielle.
April W. - Nice, elegant gem in a beach town. No tv's which keeps it classy. Large wrap around bar that offers "bar specials " such as a smaller portion of surf and turf for half the price. Wait staff extremely friendly and attentive. I ordered the bar portion of surf and turf. Lobster tail was excellent. The steak was absolutely phenomenal. This place should be labeled as the best steak. Super impressed. I ordered mashed potatoes for side and they were great. Drinks are around $10 each.
Jennifer A. - Extremely impressed with Shipwreck Grill, the quality of all the food I was served was outstanding. Oysters were fresh and our waitress (Stephanie) did a great job explaining the tastes of each kind. The coconut shrimp appetizer was so scrumptious and the dipping sauce it was accompanied with was just as tasteful. I ordered the blackened chatham cod for my entree which came with clams, kale, bacon, cherry tomatoes and a corn pudding. I can honestly say I've never cleaned my plate before but I did this night. My dish was excellent, there's nothing I would change at all, I enjoyed every last bite of it. We also enjoyed a great bottle of wine, Rex Hill. Extremely smooth, I would recommend to any Pinot Noir lovers out there. Shipwreck Grill also offers live music (I believe on Thursday nights?), that's when I was there and the band was great. They do have a large outdoor patio but we sat inside, it was too hot and theres not much of a view anyway, the restaurant is set back far from the water. I'll be back!!
Camille G - We were in the area and decided to get just an appetizer and cocktails. I used Yelp to view nearby restaurants this one in particular had great reviews. It was deceiving from the main road but once your in their parking lot it's huge. It overlooks a marina, must be romantic at sunset. It has a nice size outside deck to with tables and chairs. We entered the restaurant and was pleasantly surprised. It was like I walked into s five star restaurant in NYC. We were greeted by the smiling host immediately, which in nowadays is rare. We sat at the bar and was served peanuts. Bartender handed us the menu. We were just caught up in the classy surroundings and uniformed waiters with great service. Everyone looks happy to be here and it's due to staff projecting a relax friendly and fun establishment. I finally ordered a margarita and my husband ordered a scotch. They were amazingly delicious. We ordered Shipwreck Sampler. Oh my goodness, the clams and oysters were so fresh, we were eating it with such enjoyed I think I was just smh. It was that good. Unfortunately, we dug in before we realized that we should have taken a picture. Take my word on this one, perfect for date night, business dinner, birthday dinners, or anything dinner. Very very impressive service and outstanding food with great presentation. I look forward to coming back.
John D. - Enjoyed a very nice special occasion dinner at Shipwreck Grille in Brielle NJ this evening. Don't let the no frills exterior fool you, the food was on par with the price and the interior matches the "proper attire only" policy. My wife and I shared the Beet Salad starter with goat cheese. It was prepared as a diced stack of pickled beets over arugula and sprouts garnished with a tasty basalmic dressing. Salads / Soups. I ordered the New England Clam Chowder while my wife enjoyed the Kale Salad. Both were excellently prepared. Chowder could have had a few more clams but the bacon garnish was nice. I did need to add a bit of salt. The Kale salad was superior to the chowder. Excellent marriage of flavor and the kale was baby leaves and tender. Entrees: The stuffed lobster tail with mashed potatoes was top notch in terms of freshness and flavor. Stuffing did not overwhelm the lobster meat. I had the Pork Chop..with a delicious glaze. Bit over cooked. If you like slightly pink be sure to order Medium Rare and not Medium. However the cut was thick and the lobster gnocchi were tasty which garnish with peas, shiitake mushrooms, pearl onions and tender carrots. Dessert: Shared their Riccotta "Donuts". Comes with marscapone cream and Espresso mousse...delicious. Not really donuts, they are more like Italian zeppoli cappuccino above average. Service was top shelf. Each course provided new silver wear and table cloth clean up. This place is about the food not the scenery, unless you like looking at the backside of the marina it backs up to. Outside dinning also very nice and free private parking. Full service bar... Not a BYOB eat and leave venue. Perfect for a special occasion etc... Pricey but above average food.
