Best Diners at the Jersey Shore [LIST]
With the news of the OB Diner in Point Pleasant shutting down, I wanted to recognize the best diners at the Shore. The diner. They're an integral part of the Jersey Shore. Many are out there, but where are the best? Here are our top 5.
Tony’s Freehold Grille – Freehold
This is the tiny diner on the corner of Main Street in Freehold. It was built in 1947, and is one of the few remaining original diners in the state. It's very retro with jukeboxes, but they've also modernized with flat-screen TVs.
This diner on Route 70 has a humungous menu. Anything you could possibly want for breakfast or in the middle of the night is at what used to be called the Ocean Queen. The New York club is awesome.
Roadside Diner – Wall
This diner is legendary for more than its food and location on 33 and 34. The cover for Bon Jovi's “Crossroads” was shot inside The Roadside. Bruce's video for “Girls In Their Summer Clothes” also featured the diner. You can't get more Jersey than that.
Four Seasons – Toms River
The Four Seasons beat out 100 other New Jersey diners to be named the best in the state by Palisades Insurance Company. From pancakes to pasta, meatloaf to lamb chops, The Four Seasons has it all. If you're on Fischer Boulevard and you want traditional diner food or meals you never thought you'd find at a diner, Four Seasons is the way to go. Doesn't strawberry cream stuffed french toast sound good?
Broadway Diner – Red Bank
If you've had a late night in Red Bank there's a good chance you're going to land in The Broadway Diner on Monmouth Street. They are known worldwide for their buttermilk pancakes. OK, maybe they aren't know worldwide, but they're pretty darn good. The Broadway is the model of what a Jersey diner should be.
