Hi!All I aske this about two years ago but we're going back next week for 4 nights.
We are staying in Asbury Park area (actually Tinton Falls by the Parkway) for two nights and in Avon / Belmar / Spring Lake / Bradley Beach / Ocean Grove the other two nights (Saturday night through Tuesday night). Looking for dinner ideas. We are sort of burned out from Moonstruck and weren't thrilled after they moved to Asbury and got a liquor license. (We sort of love BYOBs). Last time we ended up at the place in Ocean Grove with the big fish tank.
Because it will be dark at dinner time (7pm or later) a view of ocean doesn't matter.
We want a few places with different atmosphere (but not smokey please!)Casual as well and moderately priced for at least two meals. I know we can drive up to Red Bank, where there seem to be many places but didn't want to run that far. Also at least one place for Monday when many places close.
While I'm asking, we have friends coming down to meet us for a nice lunch on Tuesday. Any ideas?
I seem to remember a large Italian Restaurant on Main Street in what I think is Bradley Beach but can't remember it's name. We did have lunch in Spring Lake at the BYOB there (I forget it's name. It was okay but not great.)
So... can you North Jersey Shore experts help??
I'd sure appreciate it!
