Reviewed By Handtiques - Ventnor City, New Jersey

What a pleasant, well maintained, place to get away from the hustle bustle!
Just outside of Atlantic City. Trails are very well marked. Beautiful Holly trees, Pines and the skyline of AC are just some of the highlights.
If hiking isn't your thing you can do the bird watching drive.

6 adults, 6 grandchildren, not sure who had more fun. Many rides are fun for both kids and grownup kids. Park is decorated with thousands of lights during the holidays which all light up by Santa at 5:00 pm. It’s magical and really puts you in the holiday spirit.

Had lunch in the tavern by a beautiful wood burning fire. The meal was excellent, truly a significant notch up from previous visits. While the food has always been good here, it has gotten better.

Ultimate Battlezone

Reviewed By bdesantis777 - Atlantic City, New Jersey

I was here for my nephews birthday.Party was great.Kids had fun,The young men that were ref's were awesome! So good that my sister put an extra tip in for them with bill. As we were leaving, she told the one young man that she gave tip with bill and to make sure they got it. As we were carrying our stuff out, my sister thanked everyone and reminded the young man about his tip.He thanked my sister and walked over to oriental women at front desk.We heard him tell her what my sister said, and the women yelled, "There's no money!! You will get it next time!!" We were really taken back by her saying that to him. I wanted to go say something, but my sister didn't want to make a scene and thought it would make it worse for the young man. We are still wondering if the young man got his tip and think the owner should probably teach that woman some social etiquette.So my opinion is, great place for party, but didn't like the fact we left wondering if they got their tips.If we are there again, we will personally give the tips to be sure.

Black Cat Bar & Grill

Reviewed By MarineCorpsOne - Buffalo, New York

Stopped in for happy hour to check Black Cat out. Clean, neatly decorated, multifaceted restaurant/bar/food emporium in heavily trafficked area. Free pizza for patrons yet cold, uninspired female bartender busy texting and complaining to couple at end of bar. A real shame because they make great pizza and people flock to Black Cat for it. She could have warmed it up but her miserable demeanor, including multiple F-Bombs, prevented that. Overall, a decent place with really good happy hour prices.

Will detail separately. And very interesting educational Wine tour/tasting at Renault. Good kick back spot. Do not play golf.
