“This place is truly awesome. All the food is great, not just a pizza place. My wife, children, and I love this establishment. We could not recommend it enough.Parking: Best to find a spot on main street, or you will have to park behind in the public town parking lot.Kid-friendliness: My children love the food, but Qua has a small dining room. So just make sure that you and your children are respecting that.Wheelchair accessibility: The restaurant itself is wheelchair accessible. However, There is only 1 handicap space close to the unit, and it is on Main St.”

“A plant oasis that happens to also be a coffee shop. This place is filled with plants from every nook and cranny it has to offer. Along with all the plants they sell a bunch of other little items local places/people have made. I ordered the coco matcha and it was splendidly piping hot. It felt so warming as I drank it on this cold day. This place has pastries and toast items available to eat. I would say don't plan on trying to work or eat here. There is only one table in the front of the room and then a bench along the one wall.”

Slightly overcooked than I had asked but still worth finishing the plate. Kinda of an old man fisherman bar feel with pizza but still had some old school charm to it.”

I will be ordering this for the holidays next year, for sure. We love their blueberry and choc chip scones too.”

“This is one of our favorites, a jewel on the main drag in Manasquan. Pork roll, egg and cheese on brioche with a side of waffle fries.....c'mon, it doesn't get much better. And this is Jersey, so it's real pork roll and the Pig does it right. If you're looking for something a little more upscale, try the croque madame. It's the best grilled ham and cheese you've ever had, bathed in mornay sauce (known as fancy cheese sauce to the simpler, pork roll folk like me). But if you go that route you may want to share. And the coffee, brought to your table in a thermos, is great. Cool little place, great people and all part of the scene in downtown Manasquan - so you can walk off some of those calories after.”

“First time here just recently, met some friends before a show. Only had drinks and appetizers so review has that limitation. We were seated promptly as the dining room was not crowded on a rainy February Friday at 530pm. To be fair the place was full by the time we left around 7. I'm guessing much of this evening's patorns were also headed to the same show at a local performing arts theater. Service was very good but short of outstanding. Our drink orders were handled efficiently. We ordered a boatload of appetizers for our table of 10 and they arrived reasonably quickly. I have to say, every appetizer was excellent! We had two different types of wings, quesadillas, empanadas, nachos and disco tots. Everyone loved the selection. I highly recommend this place gor this kind of casual outing. We didn't have any dinner entrées but I will definitely be back to try them soon.”
