15 New Jersey Restaurants Right On The River That You’re Guaranteed To Love

New Jersey has over three dozen gorgeous rivers, along with numerous tributaries, brooks, streams and canals. Lucky for us, some of these rivers have restaurants right along their banks. I’m a big fan of all kinds of waterfront dining – ocean, lake, pool and pond, but there’s something so special about the steady flow of a river. Enjoy your next meal riverfront at one of these fantastic restaurants in the Garden State. Please note that the list begins with North Jersey restaurants and ends with riverside spots in the southern portion of our state.
