I have eaten here four times and have been pleased each time. It's nice to have someplace different to eat at in Ocean County.

Went this evening for dinner with my wife and the staff was very fast and attentive. This was our first time and we will definitely be back again.

Huge portions, and for the amount of seafood on my plate, this was a steal. Delicious desserts that aren't overly sweet. I'd return without question.

Dan N.

The Portuguese grill has the best food, a friendly atmosphere, and the best people working there.
I try to get there as often as I can. If u want a great meal u have to go there trust me.

Food was great. Service was slow, but in a relaxed way. We were in no rush and the servers knew that. Highly recommend. BYO makes this restaurant highly desirable. The seafood creme soup (seafood bisque in my best estimation) was fabulous as was the seafood gratin. Calamari was done right - basic and good. My husband loved the duck, but it was served differently than we are used to. He basically got an entire duck! Bones and all. It was moist and delicious. Dessert of chocolate mousse cake was a perfect ending. Just go and eat.

Excellent as always.. reasonable , authentic, no rushing you in and out.. Friendly wait staff.. thoughtful seating.. ie they had a family with children (well behaved mind you) one one end and the couples and groups (which can get "active" separated as well.. nice environment.. you can actually carry on a conversation.. The basket of warm breads (2 kinds) is fragrant and crispy.. delish with a saucer of herbed olive oil..
Paella and several other authentic dishes are served in LARGE cookpots and seasoned beautifully... when they get the rice right, you know the rest of the dish will be proper.. You can choose to dine at the bar, which is real authentic euro dinner.. Deserts are ugg.. you won't get there.. there is TOOO much food.. Cappuccino and Expressos can be done decaf !!! our fav place... BYOB..

Had excellent meals this time - one of the best I have had there. I had bacon wrapped scallops to start - excellent!
My M-in-L had the stuffed flounder - fully stuffed with crabmeat - very good.
I had the cataplana with chicken - an absolutely wonderful dish and very tasty sauce.
Was served by the owner and she was very attentive and pleasant considering the place was very busy.

Always a great meal. This is my go to place for a great night out! Thank you for making my mom's 70th birthday meal out of this world!

The paella and stuffed lobster was amazing. Growing up near the Newark area I was skeptical due to the authenticity of the Portuguese restaurants in that area. I'm very impressed and will add this to my resturant roster.
