Great spot in the Wildwoods. The next best place for selection would be Atlantic City at Firewaters and I'm tired of the sub-par service there.

Nice selection with about 36 drafts and 40 bottles, not counting the BMC that no doubt pays the bills. New menu this summer is great with pizza that rivals the boardwalk and beats them in price. 50 cents to a dollar cheaper than any other bar in town that may even serve a craft brew and served in proper glassware. Beers are fresh with a good turn-over of the taps. My go to spot in CMC.

I have heard some good things about this place recently so I figured I would check it out for lunch. After being fleeced for all of my quarters by the ridiculously expensive parking meeter out front I entered the bar area and was greeted by a large brick and wood lined space. Pretty large bar area on the left with a decent sized dining room to the right. Tons of TV's all over the place and a separate bar area outside if you want to sit out there. Quality was good, correct glasses and decent enough food. Service was pretty good. He was around when I needed him and he offered some suggestions. Selection was great for the area. Tons of different beers from all over the country. I stuck with the local options and got a Cape May Blonde. They have two dedicated taps just for Cape May which is awesome, but they also have plenty of other options as well. Food was decent enough. I tried to get a brick oven pizza but it wasn't up to temperature yet so I had to switch to the chicken finger sandwich which was pretty solid. Overall a nice beer bar in a sea of nothingness. I will definitely return in the future.

I've been here twice and both times service was terrible; ordered food and they brought entrees out at 3 different time. Waitress disappeared for a long while... bad service. They do have a large selection of draft beers, which was nice. Food is OK, nothing to write home about. I wouldn't be upset if I never went here again. Might be good if you grabbed a seat at the bar and ordered from Bartender.

Went for dinner on 6/30. We saw their tap list on their website so decided to go. When we got there, we realized their tap was out of date and so was their draft board in the bar. They have 36 taps so they have more craft beer than anywhere down in Wildwood and many of shore points for that matter.

A - Cool atmosphere. Plenty of TVs and glad to see the Phillies were on every one. They have an outside section and bar with a person playing guitar.

Service - It was ok. We sat at a table and our waitress was good, however she was not knowledgable about beer and she never brought one of the salads and it was on the bill. We asked for a sample of Cape May IPA based on the reviews on BA. We believe they gave us the Cape May Saison. I questioned whether or not they mixed up the taps and they said no. The young bar tender had very little knowledge of craft beers.

Selection - The food quality of drafts was average. Nothing to crazy and not a good selection of APA or IPAs on when we were there. Their takeout is really none existent. They maybe had six different beers in the takeout fridge, all cans. Their website claims to have more.

Food - The was not that good. Tyson chicken wings for the kids. Loaded cheese fries seemed like frozen crinkle fries served on foil. The brick oven pizza was average. The Farmhouse Mussels with blue cheese, bacon, and onions was VERY good. The boneless chicken tenders were average at best. We didn't realize they charge for refills on sodas until we go the bill.

They do have their own parking lot which is nice, especially in that part of town. Overall, the food was not that good and we could not find a decent IPA or APA to drink so we went back to OC and drank the good beer that we brought.
We won't be going back to Goodnight Irene's.
