Weigh In - Favorite restaurant in Monmouth County

Whats your favorite restaurant in Monmouth County?



As a great food lover once said, "So many restaurants, so little time."

How would you decide on your favorite pick, given the hundreds, seemingly thousands of restaurants of all types that exist to tempt us in Monmouth County? But whos counting. Were lucky indeed to live in an area with so many choices.

Spending a sunny Saturday at Pier Village in Long Branch is like experiencing a microcosm for the many restaurant picks in Monmouth County. Spin around and from fancy to family friendly, you can find it all, dining-wise, at Pier Village, from high-end Avenue to big island Shaka to lets go back to the 50s retro Stewarts Root Beer.

At Family Fun Day at Pier Village, sponsored by the Community YMCA, we asked a sampling of individuals about their favorite Monmouth County "go to" restaurants.

It seems most people have not just one favorite restaurant but two or three. And theyre fast to name them. Ask them why and they either reference a particular dish, or a great value, or the terrific atmosphere or view. A few spoke wistfully of an amazing meal had at an award-winning Monmouth County restaurant, naming it their favorite even if theyve only been there once, or maybe even not at all but hope to go one day soon. Value is big these days, as are the restaurants weve gone to forever that never seem to change, and we like it that way.

Thanks to all the restaurateurs, chefs, managers and wait staff in Monmouth County who keep us coming back for more. Whether you stick to your old favorites or try some of the recommendations here, your friends at Living In Media say "bon appetit" to a summer spent enjoying our many delectable Monmouth County restaurants.
