Food Scene
We love Zachary's pizza! Plus on Monday nights you can get half price pizza's when you eat at the restaurant. It's a short bike ride or drive from the house.

McLoone's is on the boardwalk overlooking the beach. How cool is that? We love their food...a little pricey but consistently good. They also have live music so what's not to like, right?

Located in Pier Village (also one in Little Silver-easier to park). Open for breakfast and lunch. You won't be disappointed as the food is delicious. Pier Village location is right on across from the beach so get there early. Parking is difficult during the summer so we recommend riding your bike.
