For years, Rooney’s Oceanfront has had one of the best views in Long Branch, whether you’re out on the patio just steps from the ocean, or in the dining room looking out the expansive windows over the beach.

Jenkinson’s Pavillion, Point Pleasant Beach
Surely you’ve had pizza or ice cream from Jenkinson’s after a day on the boardwalk, but their ocean front restaurant serves some of the best sandwiches at the shore! Their beer battered cod sandwich, along with their french dip are among our favorites at the shore, and no meal at Jenks would be complete without either their PEI mussels, a burger or some little necks. Casual Jersey Shore oceanfront dining at its best. Note: The restaurant is seasonal.
