The Shipwreck Point is one of the top steakhouses in the Point Pleasant area.
Located across the across the street from the Manasquan Inlet, the interior decor has a rich, upscale feel to it with dark wood walls, soft lighting and a huge horseshoe shaped bar, tables set with soft beige linens, and a cozy fireplace in a stone wall adding to the ambiance, especially during the cooler off season months.
The dark brown tin ceiling and tile flooring, while attractive, contributes to the poor acoustics and the high noise level during the peak dining periods.
The preferred seating is at the tables along the windows with a view of the inlet where you can watch the fishing boats return at the end of the day
This is a great place for business power lunches, and special occasions. The clientele tends to be mostly 50+ high income diners.
The Shipwreck Point is co-owned by Rich McGrory and Terri Granato and run by general manager Rob Pascual who have teamed up to create one of Point Pleasant's top, fine dining restaurants
The service is attentive and professional from the very beginning with a welcoming greeting by the hostess and continuing on with the server presenting a serving of three choices of warm breads with several butter options including homemade maple-honey.
The Shipwreck Point is open six days/week for dinner, from Tuesday - Thursday 5pm - 9pm, Friday & Saturday 5pm - 10pm, and Sunday 4pm - 9pm.
Reservations are highly recommended especially during the popular summer season. Last minute diners can find that they stand a good chance of being accommodated at the bar.
The Shipwreck Point has complimentary valet service on weekends. There is free, street parking during the off season. Metered street parking is in effect during the warmer months, and is free from November 1st until February 28th.
