Restaurant Review

This Southwestern restaurant, located in the attractive Blue Bay Inn boutique hotel in Atlantic Highlands, has food that is hard to beat!

Owner and Executive Michael Krikorian has create a very popular restaurant the Atlantic Highlands with it's inspired Southwestern Menu with selections of sophisticated Tex-Mex served in generous portions.

The decor is attractive with a full service bar area that can get to be very high energy on busy evenings and the dining area with earth tone walls adorned with his children’s artwork, large windows and tables and booths with high back black leather chairs.

If you plan to go with a group for a fun evening with great food, and don't mind the high noise levels and the tables being close together, you will enjoy this place. It's just not a place for a cozy, intimate night out.

If you get there early or are waiting for a table, relax at the bar and enjoy a Margaritas --- they are exceptional. Seating is also avaiable in the bar area but it can get very loud.

Their desserts while tasty, are not on a par with their starters and entrees.

The service is inconsistent, and can be slow and rushed during the busy period.

During the warmer months there is outdoor dining in the courtyard of the adjoining Blue Bay Inn
