Not much to improve upon.
This very popular restaurant is considered one of the best spots for imaginative and sophisticated seafood food in the Brielle-Point Pleasant shore area.
A very large three ton anchor, salvaged and brought to the surface by giant lift balloons just off the Manasquan inlet, is hard to miss as you approach the entrance to the restaurant.
While the interior is attractive, it is not out of the ordinary. The large oval bar, with a vibrant bar crowd dominates the landscape of the interior. High top tables between the bar and the outside walls are available for the overflow crowd.
The dining area features light soft toned walls (absent any paintings or mirrors) with dark wood bottom paneling, wood wide with floors and tables set with white linens and china. There is a gas lit fireplace built into a stone wall providing a cozy ambiance for nearby tables.
The atmosphere is casual with a touch of elegance. They have a dress policy of no t-shirts and shorts. During the weekends and summer months, the bar scene tends to be noisy and energetic.
The reason you come to the Shipwreck Grill is for the food! It's exceptional and served in an unpretentious, down to earth, environment.
As you settle into your seat and you scan the wine list and the menu, you will soon discover that you have entered a place that will please the most discerning fine dining enthusiasts.
Chef Terry Eleftheriou is very creative in preparing a large variety of well prepared dishes with his seafood selections standing out. The prices are reasonable considering the excellent quality of the food.
They also have an excellent Raw Bar with a good selection of shellfish.
The service at the Shipwreck Grill is well trained, unpretentious and attentive.
Not Recommended for children.
Open seven days a week, reservations are suggested -- especially needed during the summer months. All credit cards are accepted.
