Description: 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 :)

We really enjoyed our meal here. This is off the beaten path with beautiful outside dining and views. There a good selection of food and beers, and our meal was delicious. We enjoyed the crab soup, jerk wings, and lump crab. It is a very casual atmosphere, and it was reasonably priced

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 favorite watering hole, because this colorful and cheery place has a good conversation going around the bar, and visitors are always made to feel welcome!

I ordered the crispy shrimp tacos with a traditional margarita. Drinks are served in a Mason jar and are very good. I thoroughly enjoyed my slightly spicy crispy shrimp tacos! The place is really cozy and comfortable. This was a great recommendation!

The waitstaff is so sweet. Especially Jen. She has to run up and down stairs to serve everything and she doesn't seem to mind. On one visit, a father was with his two young sons and she enchanted them. The food is really good. We love the lump crabmeat in white wine butter sauce and the prime rib sandwich.

The perfect spot for a cocktail or a quick bite. This little Bar/Restaurant has the best View, overlooking the water you can catch a beautiful sunset while enjoying something Tasty. The Crab Soup is Very Good!

I've been 3 times now despite my first impression because of the allure of this place. The food is ok but not stellar by any means. The portions are pretty small considering how overpriced it is. All you hear about is the mason jar drinks and the ambiance. Well the drinks are about $16 and for that price should be amazing. I'm sorry they are decent watered down with lots of ice. The staff is mostly miserable and be prepared to wait forever. With the many options around Atlantic City and Somers point (where you could hang outside) you should consider somewhere else and pay half the amount.
