We went for lunch and sat on the upstairs porch which over looks the bay and has a great view. I had a burger that tasted like it was cooked the day before and reheated and my wife had what she described as the worst...More

This was a very busy Saturday evening...even though we had a 35 minute wait, it flew by. We were able to walk around The Historic Gardner's Basin and Craft Village during our wait...they keep you updated on your wait by using your cell phone. Awesome!...More

I eat here frequently. I love the dry rub jerk wings and the salads. Consistently good. Service can be slow and you'll need to wait to get in but its worth the wait.

Great Pub with lots of local beers and home of the best mason jar cocktails. Best local fried clam strips around and best Jersey crab and conch chowder. Atmosphere is fabulous sitting on the porch overlooking the marina. Friendly prompt service as well.

After visiting the Atlantic City Aquarium, I asked for suggestions where to get some lunch. Since this was March, not all the area eateries were open for business. But the Back Bay Ale House, close by, was definitely serving lunch! This must be the locals...More

Back Bay has been open in AC since 2003. We pride ourselves on great service, delicious food and fantastic atmosphere and views. In the warmer months we feature outside dining and bar. We are the home of the Basin Mason, a 32oz mason jar beverage. We have a large variety of craft beers. Nightly on our upstairs deck we do a sunset toast to say goodbye to the daylight :)
