Restaurant Reviews

The Jersey Shore is hopping with great restaurants...not to miss...

Avalon - The Diving Horse

The Diving Horse is an upscale restaurant in downtown Avalon. Excellent service and superb food made for a perfect night.

We started with field greens with an excellent combination of strawberries, beets, pistachios and vinaigrette.

For appetizer - fried oysters with pancetta and creamy potato salad. A refreshing combination.

Main course a was perfectly grilled filet mignon with flavorful bordelaise sauce, asparagus and potatoes.

another great entree pan seared scallops with pearl pasta.

Cape May - Lobster House

The summer is not complete without a visit to Cape May and the Lobster House. We enjoyed a delectable lobster dinner with baked potato & cole slaw.

We started with delicious New England clam chowder, bread fried tomatoes,

garden salad with the best blue cheese dressing!

We also returned for an outstanding meal on the dock with u peel shrimp, fried seafood combination-scallops, crab, shrimp, deviled clams, & fish. One of the Top 10 Seafood Restaurants in the Country.

Cape May - The Chalfonte - Brunch

The Brunch @ The Magnolia Room @ The Chalfonte is excellent - A step back in time. We enjoyed a sunny relaxing day starting with coffee and fresh juice with Danish and bagels.

The buffet included fresh fruit including cantaloupe, honey dew melon, watermelon, peaches, scrambled eggs, southern delights spoon bread and grits, chicken & gravy, catfish, and biscuits. All outstanding.

Take time to rock on the chairs on the porch!
