Went to the GOAT last night. Pretty good.
Wings were ok. Not crispy enough. Sauce were excellent
Burger was excellent.
Onion rings, ok.
Service was attentive. Food was brought out as it was ready. This was fine for the most part but some got their food significantly later than others.
It was really loud.
I would go back. Other menu items liked very good

I went out with my wife tonight and went to 6-7 restaurants. Each one was louder than the one before. Not sure if it was because it's the end of the school year or it's always like that (never noticed it so loud before and I've been eating out here for about 8 years).

It wasn't that crowded. They were just playing the music really loudly.

Holy Schnitzel takes the cake as the loudest establishment around here. Food is great but because of the damn venting system you can't hear a darn thing.

Apologies for the cross post.

Looking for a place that can deliver to JFK on sunday night
Seems most of the food apps dont deliver to JFK.
Can anyone recommend a place to order food that would be good to take as a BYOK?
Has anyone here ever ordered food from a nearby place to be delivered to JFK?
Id rather not play the "call in order/request uber/call uber" game if i dont have to.

Never stayed by the hotel but there is http://www.longbeachhotelny.com/surfroom/  plus you are driving distance (20-25 minutes) to the 5 towns.

Also the boardwalk/beach is great this time of year. Concerts every night from what ive been told.

I go there almost weekly for years. I guess I never looked before so I never noticed.
