Our reservation was for 7:30. We finally placed our order at 8:15. The salad arrived at 8:35. Not sure what the problem was. Our server, Jackson was the bright spot of the evening, very personable and accommodating. I was about to order the lobster risotto, then he told us that "there is no lobster meat in the dish, just lobster stock".Our entrees were good, although the mushroom risotto that accompanied mine was hopelessly over-cooked mush and not edible. We had not been back to this restaurant in a very long time, and sadly, its kitchen has gone down in quality quite a bit. With tip, our two entrees and two drinks totaled $117, which is quite a bit for just ok food. The table across from us sent one of their entrees back twice, and it took forever for the kitchen to get it right. There was a time when this restaurant was a consistent, high-quality, nice experience. Unfortunately, like many other restaurants, the clientele now wear jeans, shorts, t-shirts, flip-flops, and even pajamas. The manager should give Jackson a huge bonus.

Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse

Dinner here with the convention group was VERY good. Quiet atmosphere made it easy to converse (noisy seems to have become the standard so many places), attentive wait staff was greatly appreciated, and the food choices were excellent. Chilean Sea Bass was perfectly cooked, well seasoned, and worth the trip just for that. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

We had a great meal here and our server, Lori, was excellent! Started with the warm pretzel appetizer, which is served with beer cheese & a tangy mustard. We split a Caesar salad & the meatloaf entree, which comes with mashed potatoes. We had the peanut butter pie for dessert & it was AWESOME!!! This restaurant is casual, yet “fine”....Our wine was served in crystal. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Take the advice on the menu seriously - you do want to leave room for pie. Specifically the brown sugar pie. The cocktails are interesting and tasty. The short ribs were also a highlight. The room is comfortable and the service is attentive.

We have dined here many times, and always look forward to a trip to Easton so we can dine at The Ocean Club. Simply put, the food and service are always top-notch. The wine list is extensive, so we always find a great bottle that pairs perfectly with our dinners. The restaurant is nicely appointed, and dining here is relaxing and enjoyable. But, be prepared - it can be a bit pricey...but it is worth it!Thank you for your kind words. We are so glad that you enjoy your meal with us and appreciate your support.
