There are few things better than a high quality meal literally across the street from a beautiful beach.

The Black Trumpet in Spring Lake is serving up awesome cuisine, and while the summer season is in full swing, you gotta fit in a meal on their awesome outdoor deck!

Whether it's for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, The Black Trumpet is open 7 days a week, serving up classic Jersey Shore favorites along with more high end specialties.

I've had the pleasure of dining at The Black Trumpet several times and I love the way Chef and Owner Mark Mikolajczyk can turn the simplest filet of fresh fish or basic piece of chicken into an amazing plate of food.

I'd definitely recommend the local scallops if available, but I've always been satisfied with every seafood dish at The Black Trumpet.

Even after the crazy summer season, stop in for a great meal by the water, the food is on point!

The Black Trumpet is located at 1505 Ocean Ave. in Spring Lake. Open daily at 11 a.m. Reservations recommended. Call 732-449-4700 for more info.
