With our miles and miles of gorgeous coastline, New Jersey has dozens of spectacular oceanfront restaurants. Some are quite posh, particularly those in Atlantic City, but others are more low key. Of course, low key does not mean low quality. Some of the Garden State’s best beach spots lean towards the casual side. So, skip the black tie and head here…

This is a great date destination, perfect for a night out with friends, and works just as well for happy hour or football on Sunday! You can find Rooney’s Oceanfront Restaurant at 100 Ocean Avenue North, Long Branch. They’ve been voted “Best of Monmouth County” and have won numerous wine spectator awards.
