Jack's Tavern has closed its doors. And there are rumors about who may have purchased it.

As long as I can remember, Jack's Tavern in Belmar has been a much-loved place for dinner, drinks, and live music. With that famous striped awning along 10th Ave. and the sandwich boards out front listing musicians like Pat Roddy and Bobby Bandiera, I have passed by that place many times.

But with very little fanfare (and practically no social media), Jack's has shut down.

So say your goodbyes to a family owned and operated business (that began in 1934) along with their fresh seafood, black angus steaks, 80 years of fresh-squeezed screwdrivers and great entertainment.

Beach Haus Brewery is now under contract to buy Jack's (or at least the liquor license.)
