The Jersey Shore Restaurant Tour Everyone Should Take At Least Once

I love the Jersey Shore. I’ve spent summers all across the country, from Florida to California, but nothing can compare. While both states were wonderful in their own way, I’ve got a special place in my heart for the Jersey Shore. The water’s warmer here than in California (by 5-10 degrees in August) and New Jersey isn’t under the constant threat of hurricanes between May-November like Florida. Another thing that makes the Garden State special is that each and every beach town has its unique charm.

Last, but not least, the dining scene can’t be beat (countless food critics agree, with Asbury Park often being labeled the epicenter of the culinary action). There are amazing eateries all along our coast but for this food tour, I’m focusing on the iconic Asbury Park area. If you love it (and I hope you do!), I’m happy to create more, focusing on the Southern Shore and other foodie towns. Without further ado, read on for food + fun…

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Sound like fun? This food tour is a great way to experience the shore and I’d love to do more. Let me know what you think, and what areas you’d like to be featured in the future. To discover other amazing eateries (with magnificent margaritas) in Asbury Park, click here for our Margarita Mile.
