Our friends invited us to go with them back in June and we

oil with our BYOB wine.

Stone Harbor doesn't have a boardwalk so the downtown is
where the locals hang out! The night we were there it was packed. After dinner
we had a walk on the town, a chance to shop and eat ice cream at Springer's
Homemade Ice Cream. I enjoyed the delicious dinner mint chocolate chip. The
long line was worth the wait and moved quickly.
My tips for summer dining at the Jersey Shore.
1. Dine mid week if you can- restaurants will be less busy.
2. Get a reservation early in the evening. You'll beat the
crowds and get more attention.
3. I like bringing small 4 pkg. bottles of wine, since we
are not big wine drinkers.
4. When dining at "upscale restaurants" with a la carte
menus, skip the appetizers and salad. Then you will be hungrier for dinner and
you won't add the $7 - 10 charge to the already pricey entrée. The salads are
delicious, but if you are going to have to make a cut, I prefer to do it there.
5. Most restaurants post their menu online, so check out the menu ahead of time for prices and choices. It'll help you make up your mind if it's a place you want to dine.
