Jersey Shore Dining

Hoffman's Ice Cream
After you have walked on the beach or the Boardwalk, end the night with a creamy ice cream cone from this restaurant. There are several flavors of ice cream that are made at the location. The hazelnut mocha is a favorite among people who frequent the area. There are different sizes that you can get for your ice cream. Most people order a kids cup because it is enough for one person. Not only are there a variety of flavors, but you can get the ice cream in numerous dishes. Try a banana split one day, and get a sundae when you go back the next day.

Dock's Oyster House
If you like seafood, then you will not be disappointed when you eat here. The oysters are served fresh, and the fish is caught off the coast each morning. Try your oysters with a little Tabasco sauce for a spicy kick. The shrimp cocktail is a good selection if you want to share a dish with another person. If you don't like seafood, you should try the rack of lamb.

Shea's Café and Bakery
This is not the type of bakery where you go in, place an order and leave. There are tables for you to sit at while you eat your decadent pastry. The fried apples are served with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream that melts on contact. The bakery is open for breakfast and lunch. All of the pastries are made in the store early in the morning. If something sweet does not appeal to you, then try the scrambled eggs and French toast.

Kelsey and Kim's Southern Café
Who said fried chicken is best in the south? When you eat here, you will see that the owners serve the best fried chicken in the area. It is crunchy and the chicken is juicy. The macaroni and cheese is one of the best side items to get with your meal. The café also serves tender pork sliders as well as pork ribs. The food is filling and will leave you wanting to come back for more.

Hot Dog Tommy's
When you visit the Jersey Shore, you have to get a quality hot dog. This is the place you want to go to get the biggest hot dogs you have ever seen. You can get almost any topping that you can think of. It is not a restaurant where you sit down to eat. There is a small window where you place your order, and then you can sit at one of the tables in the area parks.
