BECAUSE QUALITY SHOULDN’T BE RARE. Located on the shore in Bradley Beach, New Jersey, Rare provides a dining experience you won’t forget. Chef Neil West uses premium fresh ingredients, handled with care and passion. We source the top 2% of as USDA beef. We also source locally when it makes sense. That’s what makes us RARE.
Fantastic service and food. Friendly wait staff, awesome experience!
The food was the best we have had in a long time. Rare is warm and inviting
Great steakhouse -- one of the best in Monmouth County! Yes, it's pricey, but the food and service are outstanding!

The best steak house in the area. None can compare.
Open inside before it gets cold. Please.
Everything from service, appetizers, entrées, sides and desserts was phenomenal! I was with a party of eight and we all agreed it was one of our best meals in a while. Can’t wait to return!
We had a wonderful evening
We loved everything!!! Food was out of this world! Great quality, flavor, and everything was cooked to perfection! Service was great too. We will definitely be back!
Outdoor dining was very well done. Food is always exceptional- tasty, cooked properly, excellent presentation. Service was attentive and responsive. Desserts were special.
It was a joy.
Another great experience at Rare. Our steaks were amazing. The Mac & cheese and brussel sprouts were the perfect sides. The berry biscuit desert was light and refreshing . Our server Ally took great care of us. She was very attentive without being annoying. Looking forward to our next visit.
Excellent dining experience all around! Superb steak
Always wonderful. Steaks are top of the line.
This was our 2nd visit to this restaurant . It has been a great experience both times. Good service and excellent food. Our only small complaint this time (outdoor dining due to state regulations) was that tables were definitely not 6 feet apart.
Never disappoints, every entree is top notch, service is excellent.
We had Ali she was fantastic!! What service and passion!! Food excellent..I would have loved to eat indoors but with virus still here it was outside..overall very very good!!
Excellent steaks and seafood! Would recommend to anyone looking for a great meal!
Service was great and the food was the best I've tasted!
Was excellent my third time there
My boyfriend and I knew the second we talked to the hostess, we knew we were going to have an amazing dinner. The service was outstanding, asking if we needed anything etc. we got the maple bacon special, the scallops and a 16 oz steak. Every bit was better than the previous once. This was our first time at rare and will definitely not be the last!! Highly highly highly recommend
Great food, did a nice job with outdoor seating. Our fourth time and definitely will be back
With things how they currently are they pulled off a great atmosphere, first time out for a real meal in months. Great food quality
We loved it. Can't wait to dine inside someday.
Love the food, and service at RARE. Very happy to have it opened back up. Had the steak, the macaroni & cheese, onion rings and strawberry shortcake. Everything was wonderful.
Great Food ... very very polite staff ... eating on the Main Street side walk was a different and unique experience !! Well Done !
Great staff, great food, great restaurant experience!!!
Our first time at RARE. The service was very good...from the waiter to the servers. The food was good...nothing overwhelming... portions were better than average. A limited menu-a steak house, so, mostly steaks. Not much choice for people who are not beef-eaters. Loved the background music and the chocolate chip / ice cream desert!
"Ambiance rating really isn't fair. Had to dine outdoors due to COVID. Prefer indoors but it was actually nice. Only criticism is the lack of baked potato from the menu. Filet mignon was perfect and spinach was great.
Everything was very goog
Food was delicious, service was wonderful and it’s a BYOB. Bacon Appetizer was mouthwatering, Petite filet was cooked perfectly and dessert was so good. PS order the Mac and cheese!
Great food with great service. Ambiance is a little tough to rate since you’re basically sitting on the street. However, they are working with what is available and within guidelines.
Excellent service and delicious food. Outdoor seating wasn’t great, but they did their best with covid.
We had a great meal, food was outstanding an enjoyable evening at RARE.
Great food. Always a good time at Rare.
Food was excellent but service was slow. We were seated for a while before anyone offered water or opened our wine. There was a lull between the soup/salad and the entrees and our sides came out when our entrees were pretty much done. We were comped our dessert but service still needs some improvement.
Best ceasar salad I've had in a long time! Steak was good fries were soggy.
