With summer coming up fast at the Jersey Shore, your mind may start to wander towards some seriously great outdoor dining.

For example, MJ's in Bayville has an amazing outdoor area, a little beach, an outdoor bar, and a stage for live music.

B2 Bistro in Bayville is also a go-to when the weather is warmer to enjoy the views from their massive outdoor dining area that overlooks the Barnegat Bay.

Even River Rocks Outdoor Beach Bar is a great place to grab a drink and unwind after a long day at work.

But did you know one of the best and biggest Tiki bars in the entire state (so may even say the country) is located right here in the heart of the Jersey Shore?

If you've never been to Martell's, even if grabbing a cold one isn't your thing, you'll want to check this place out.

Located on Jenkinson's Boardwalk this massive restaurant offers more than just refreshing drinks.

You can get sushi, lobster rolls, and more seafood than you can shake a stick at and you can even enjoy their legendary Steampots filled with veggies, seafood, and deliciousness.

Only In Your State says what makes this tiki bar one of the best in the state are the amazing views you can get when sitting on the pier.

Martell's is also well known for its live music, and great vibes in the summer.

My wife and I have been here a handful of times and it's always been fun, but if tiki bars aren't your thing maybe you want to check out all the great concerts coming to the PNC Bank Arts Center This Summer!
