The Most Popular Restaurants to Dine At Throughout the Summer and the Year

Looking for a great new restaurant to try? Check out these seven stand-out restaurants:



Looking for real-deal authentic Italian food? Spano's is your go-to. The head chef, Joseph Spano, has been in the Italian food industry since 1989, and his restaurants have gained quite the buzz due to their huge portions and phenomenal taste. Getting a table at Spano's can be difficult, so make sure to call in advance.

Location: 719 Arnold Avenue, Point Pleasant Beach, NJ

Squan Tavern

Squan Tavern has been satisfying taste buds since 1964, so it's safe to say their good reputation is set in stone. Known for their pizza and sandwiches, Squan Tavern has something for everyone. Stop by for dinner, but be warned, this place may become a regular in your restaurant roster.

Location: 15 Broad Street, Manasquan, NJ

Waypoint 622

Waypoint 622 is certainly hard to compete with. Located on the Manasquan River, Waypoint 622's views are spectacular, and their New American cuisine is too. Make sure to check out the outdoor patio bar when you go, and let the waiters and valet service take care of the rest!

Due Amici

When looking for an Italian restaurant with that classic Italian restaurant atmosphere, Due Amici is hard to beat. This dim-lit Italian restaurant, similar to Spano's, will leave you carrying bags of leftover's out, assuming you're not an NFL lineman. With a live pianist every night, Due Amici is the perfect spot for a nice family dinner or a date night.
