16 Stores and Restaurants We Wish Were Still at the Jersey Shore

From Sea Bright’s jumpin’ night club Tradewinds to popular chains like Bradlees. There are a bunch of businesses and eateries the Jersey Shore misses dearly. See how many of these past establishments jog your memory. Oh, and the classic commercials are priceless. 

Ground Round



The old time silent movies, never ending popcorn and peanuts and Bingo the Clown. The best!


Tradewinds Night Club – Sea Bright



Check out this video from ’93 of Bruce jumping on stage to jam with Clarance Clemons!





The discount department store went bankrupt in 2000.


Stuff Yer Face – Long Branch



Who could forget this jingle? The original New Brunswick location is still open.

Jim’s Burger Haven – Hazlet



Best burger in town!





The “upscale discounter.”


Two Guys



At its peak, there were more than 100 Two Guys locations nationwide.


Bob Kislin’s



I always got my little league gear at Kislin’s!





Wow, this Sizzler commercial is so bad it’s good!



Eatontown Drive-In



RIP all drive-in theaters! The Delsea in Vineland is still going strong. I guess we’ll have to get by with “movies on the beach.”



Hook Line and Sinker Restaurant – Rumson



How many weddings did you attend here?





Once a staple of the original Seaview Square Mall. Fun fact: 94.3 The Point broadcast from Seaview Square Mall for years. Do you remember seeing us?
