Dinner Recommendation for the Summer

This is not a recipe nor is it a restaurant review. It is more like a destination turned dining option.

I married into the summers at LBI lifestyle and really really like it. Rob's family belongs to the Little Egg Harbor yacht club, but neither of us have adopted the way-of-life to goes with it. What we have adopted was a weekly trip to LBI for fresh seafood dinner and crisp beachy air.

I realize that everyone doesn't have a house at LBI, but it doesn't have to be a sleep-over thing, nor does it have to be LBI. The point I am making here is that it does a psyche good to get out once a week (or maybe just once a month) over the summer and take an 1 to 1 1/2 hr drive out to your favorite beach to have some good seafood. Rob and I started doing it last year and we're going to take a drive down on July 3rd for the reasons I mentioned above.

If you do frequent LBI, or are planning to vacay there, here are some of the fish stops we hit:

  • Pinky's Shrimp Company 83rd St. & Long Beach Blvd., Beach Haven Crest
  • Engleside Inn, Hotel & Restaurant Engleside Ave. & Oceanfront , Beach Haven
  • Daddy O's, 8th Street. & Long Beach Blvd Brant Beach
  • M&M Steam Bar, Delaware Ave. and the Boulevard, Beach Haven Terrace
  • Bistro 14, 9th and Bay Avenue, Beach Haven, NJ

In the morning, we stop at any bagel shop at 7:00ish. Rob has to be at work between 8:30 and 9:00 and the drive gets him there in perfect timing.

As I said before, it is worth the weekly or just monthly trips. Seafood is good for you and the fresh beach air is even better. I'm on my way out the door right now to go to LBI to celebrate our nephew Andrew's 5th birthday.

Never ate at Pinkys, and M&M's they're selling! We used to buy all our clams and stuff there.

I'm a Panzone's girl and a Buckalew's girl!

Love, love, love LBI. It's my favorite place, and have spent the last 40 years going there.
