“Cool tiki bar on the water with boat dockage for water travelers. Great atmosphere, live music, drinks and food>>>>good times! Restaurants across the street had sit down menus. The only downfall of this place is, it is a local favorite and gets packed with lots of people having a great time. If a good time with lots of people dancing isnt for you , stay away from this place :-D ”

“This is a great “locals” place. Well known for their Delmonico - a must if you feel like a steak. Otherwise my first choice is from their specials board which is usually ample. The regular menu is great too. ”

Park
“The 32 acre park was created in 1957. The main attraction is the lighthouse, which you can climb to the lightkeepers catwalk. From this lofty perch there are wonderful views of LBI, the Atlantic Ocean, Barnegat Bay, Barnegat Inlet and Island Beach State Park. Besides the lighthouse people come to the park to walk, birdwatch, learn about maritime history and fish.”
