We had dinner at sundown and the view was lovely. The menu had some really good things, like the lobster tacos and the beet hummus and gazpacho. My salad was ok. My son and husband had the lobster rolls which were very good but nothing...More

This is a nice place for a cocktail on your way to dinner, but there are other much better choices close by for food.More

Stripers features local seafood on the water with a sunset view of the river and ocean, private beach, and a waterside bar. Have a drink and an appetizer in one of our adirondack chairs on our lawn, or come inside for a great meal, with plenty of options for those who would prefer an alternative to seafood.
