My daughter & I have been going for happy hour every few weeks all summer long. Food's good, relaxed atmosphere is nice, sort of a Cheers vibe going on. Just wish they were a little more friendly to us. Not feeling very welcome despite our best efforts.

Fresh food, craft beer, great service - From tasty starters such as rotisserie chicken nachos, ahi tuna, and mussels, to hearty entrees like maple-soy salmon and panko-crusted chicken cutlets with fresh Italian herbs, you'll find something to love at Brea
Let me first start by saying, Iâve been to Breakers a couple times before this visit and have had a pleasant experience. My husband and I decided last minute to dine here for Motherâs Day. Our waitress (she never said her name) was terrible! It took at least 15 mins for her to come to our table and once she did, I put in order for appetizer and my kids meals. My daughter asked or fruit punch and it came out as a clear beverage that did NOT taste like like fruit punch, on top of it, they were not provided in Childers cups, they were given in regular cups. I asked her where are the childrenâs cups and she responded by saying they had none, meanwhile the table across from us had them. The next issues was the entree I ordered, they had a special with filet mignon and stuffed shrimp and it was to come with a salad or soup. When she took out order she never asked if I wanted a salad or soup. I said to her, âdoesnât my meal come with a salad and soupâ? And get response to me was âdid you really want oneâ? Who says that to a customer???!! My childrenâs meals never came with an ice cream as stated on the menu as well as other children received at other tables. Iâm not one to complain but this was absolutely Ridiculous and because of this, I will never return. I wanted to say something before we left but husband was so upset that he just wanted to leave, so we left. I really enjoyed the restaurant previously but this experience really put a sour taste In my mouth Especially it being Motherâs Day, I would have wanted a more enjoyable dining experience.

Amazingly I only live about a thousand feet from this long time establishment, and finally got there Saturday with my mom. Joy was our server, and couldn't have been a more pleasant person. There's nothing fancy in the Shady Rest in either decor or perhaps even in the menu. This is a simple eatery, but that said, what they do they do very well. My mom had a flounder dish and I had a dish called Veal Supreme. It was great. There was garlic bread, and I ordered chicken fingers. I even tried a chocolate Martini. Mmmmm. They have bar pies and pizza you can take home as well, and the portions are good. Look forward to going back real soon

This had to be some of the worst food I've ever eaten. Used carside pickup working overtime and wanted an easy dinner. The ribs were tough and stringy. The salad looked like 2 day old stuff. The loaded potato also left alot to be desired. Of course i didnt look at it was in rush to get to work. When it was dinner time at midnight it was sure a let down.

Went here on a weekday night for dinner with my husband and my parents. Upon perusing the menu we were all rather surprised at the high prices! ( Longhorn is a far better value. ). Anyhow, waitress came over to take drink order. I ordered the house Chardonnay (6 oz). Told sorry, we're all out. So I ordered the next higher priced Chardonnay Cupcake. Waitress returned with drink order, not mine, and said sorry we're out of Cupcake. Would you like the Chardonnay that's 10.00 a glass? Hmmmm...for a chain steak house...10 bucks for a small glass of wine. I asked if I could get it at price of other wines since they were all out. Was told no. So I settled for water while others in my party enjoyed alcoholic beverages! There was a woman running around the restaurant who appeared to be the manager (owner?) but she never once came over to ask how everything was. I tried to get her attention to question how a restaurant could be out of wine. ( the waitress told me there are a lot of wine consumers in Forked River!). So then order more wine! Our meals were just ok. The crab cakes are all crab, no filler, but I had to ask for tartar and cocktail sauce. My husband had the small cut of prime rib. He had to ask for the horseradish sauce. He said it was good but remembers it being tastier, better seasoned. My mother had fish and chips and again had to ask for the malt vinegar. She said it was decent. My father had a pasta dish with shrimp which we all agreed was just ok. Would not recommend the pasta dishes. The salad bar offers a good selection but what's to prevent anyone from just going up to help themselves? I noticed one patron went up and took an entire plate of bread and butter for herself! No way could she have consumed all that bread! Also some customers say yes to the salad bar, then go up numerous times to get plates for people at their tables. A bit annoying, to say the least. We passed on dessert and coffee and opted to have that at home as we were pretty disappointed overall with this establishment. Maybe it's just growing pains. It would be nice if we could get a good eatery at this prime location. Seems all restaurants (Forked River House) just can't survive in this strip mall. As for chain steak houses, we will stick with Longhorn. Better and tastier food, better prices, and far nicer ambience and attentive service.

At a recent visit we had the fried calamari and Maine steamer appetizers. Both were very good especially the steamers. We had sushi, prime rib, broiled seafood combo and penne vodka with shrimp. Potions are generous and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal.
