Dive right into an oasis of music, drinks and great coastal food on the Jersey Shore at DIVE! Coastal Bar & Food Joint in Sea Bright, N.J. Conveniently located across from Sea Bright Public Beach, DIVE! creates a giant splash along Ocean Avenue. Whether you’re taking a break from a long day at the beach, going out for a party after dark, or just stopping by for a burger and beer, the cool and casual atmosphere makes this bar and restaurant the place to visit.
In the kitchen, Chef Kyle Hopfensperger and Sous Chef Daniel Ciambrone make everything in house and use fresh local ingredients. They cook up seafood, burgers, tacos, salads and have new specials every day. Grab a quick bite like potato fritters, mac and cheese, nachos, New Jersey button clams, buffalo chicken wings or buffalo calamari. If you’re in the mood for a sandwich, we recommend the DIVE burger, buffalo chicken burger, or the crispy chicken sandwich.
Vegetarians can enjoy the beach burger meatless. Coastal fare includes beer battered fish and chips, braised pork tacos, and “catch and cook” – you catch it, they cook it! Be sure to dive into their incredible fries – a whole bucket for $6, malt vinegar fries, jalapeno cheese fries, buffalo fries or disco fries. DIVE! is kid friendly and offers a children’s menu too, so make it a family night!
The bar offers 18 beers on tap, including a craft beer selection and local breweries, house-made fruit infused cocktails, rum buckets, coastal drinks and a nice selection of wine. Freshly popped popcorn is always in reach at the bar or tables.
Enjoy Happy Hour at DIVE! weekdays from 4 to 7 p.m. Drink specials include $4 all beers on tap, $5 house wines, $6 fruit infused cocktails and $6 exclusive vodka. The $6 food menu features buffalo calamari, buffalo chicken wings, jalapeno cheese fries, mini beef sliders and corn fritters.
