If you want to make sure you check everything off your summer bucket list, you have to come out of the gate strong, and that gate opens this weekend. Here comes summer.

For many Jersey Shore residents, this is not our first rodeo, so we do have some knowledge of the amazing food scene around this area.

I asked some long-time residents as well as some people relatively new to the area to give us their suggestions, and we put together what we think is a pretty strong list of 5 restaurants at the Jersey shore you should make sure you get to this summer.

Here's your checklist, in no particular order, and here's to a great summer 2022!

Shrimp Box. This charming little restaurant is right on the water in Point Pleasant Beach. The view is peaceful and serene, it's just around the corner from the ocean, and the food never disappoints. You'll love the Shrimp Box.
