The Resy Guide to Dining on the Jersey Shore, Summer 2023 Edition


After a record-setting mild winter, it feels almost greedy to be so excited about the prospect of a summer along the New Jersey shore — almost.

After all, those who know, know: warmer months in the Garden State call for juicy tomatoes, sweet corn, fresh blueberries, and other Jersey-grown staples. Toss in top-notch seafood, lazy days on sandy beaches, and you’re set for the season.

Here at Resy, we’ve set about to create a special Hit List that takes in the most exciting dining in Monmouth, Ocean, and Cape May counties —  a dozen or so spots in that are well worth braving the Parkway. Taking in the sights with family? Blue Pig Tavern in Cape May and Uncle Bill’s Pancake House will help you make new memories. For a lively night out, Centrada or Bird & Betty’s are waiting for you.

Next exit: Your dining guide to the South Jersey shore, for a summer to remember.
