Listen, I totally get it. The well-known spots like Johnny Mac's and Biergarten that have been around for what seems like forever can be hard to compete with.

You may have just as good of a food menu, service, and beer variety but getting your name out there is probably one of the hardest first steps of opening up and maintaining a business.

Well there are plenty of underrated towns at the Jersey Shore with superb cuisine no matter what your favorites are. Take a look!
