I know, it's a wasteland for the most part around Manahawkin and Tuckerton. Some ok places, but nothing fantastic. We're spending New Year's Eve with my sister and family, but want to have a private meal before the festivities. We're staying at a B&B in Tuckerton, so we don't want to go further south than that, or further north than Manahawkin - obviously we know that leaves us with few choices.
Everytime we ask my BIL for a recommendation, or we go out with them we're always disappointed. He "thinks" he knows good food, but really, what he knows is a bargain. Or maybe it's just there really isn't anything worthwhile in the area? I know further south or east (Cape May, Atlantic City) there's plenty of choices, but we're definately not going to drive that far away.
Any thoughts? Or should I just tell my sister she needs to cook dinner for us? Or suck it up and go to Applebees?
