The Jersey Shore’s 25 Most Essential Restaurants

Taylor ham, Italian ice, and raw clams — from Long Branch to Cape May

Too often, restaurants down the Jersey Shore take advantage of a captive audience and the result can be less-than-stellar food. But when a shore restaurant nails it, the results are a sublimely specific combination of no-bullshit service, simple, spot-on food, and lovingly worn-in environs that any Jersey boy or girl has grown to appreciate.

These 25 restaurants are absolutely essential to the Jersey Shore. From footlong hot dogs in Long Branch to bright red lobsters in Cape May, these are the places it would be hard to imagine the area without.

Note: this list is arranged geographically, from north to south.
