Brielle, NJ. The tiny town that sits in between Point Pleasant & Manasquan. Surprisingly these 2 miles have some great eats. Here are the 10 best spots (that are locally tested) to munch at.
1. Mariner's Cove
A brielle classic. This go to breakfast spot has an extensive menu with insane portion sizes. It's honestly impossible to leave hungry. This is a local hotspot so we do recommend getting there early because the wait can get pretty long.
Must Try: Cinnamon Apple Crepes + Grandma Banana Pancakes
2. Jimmy's Cucina
Looking for true Jersey pizza? The search is over. This place serves great, fresh favorites at a reasonable price (which, honestly can be difficult to find at the beach) Not in the mood for pizza (first, do you have a fever?), second, don't worry because Jimmy's also offers, salads, subs, pasta, & taco's.
Must Try: BBQ Chicken Pizza
3. Shipwreck Grill
An elegant gem at the beach. This is definitely not a come off the beach for a quick bite restaurant. You can't go wrong when ordering any of their seafood entrees.
Must try: Seared Sesame Tuna
4. Simko's Grill
With an inviting atmosphere, 30+ TV's, and an extensive menu, Simko's is a great place to grab a drink after work, or dinner with your family.
Must Try: Grilled Shrimp Salad
5. Waypoint 622
Great restaurant with an incredible view of the Manasquan River. Chef Andy will knock himself out to please you. If you're looking for more than a burger and fries, give this place a try.
Must Try: Octopus Charcuterie
6. Brielle Ale House
With over 60 beers on tap, a fun menu, arcade games, and live music, this is the place to be! Need a ride to or from? Brielle Ale House offers a FREE shuttle service.
Must Try: Rise and Shine Burger
7. Brielle Bagels
Brielle Bagels is a local hot spot serving up the best bagels, a fresh juice, and sweet treats. Handmade and baked in-store, Brielle Bagels are second to none! Enjoy them topped with their homemade cream cheeses or go all out with pork roll egg and cheese (salt pepper ketchup!).
Must Try: Pork Roll & Cheese
8. River Cafe
A go-to morning favorite in Brielle. GREAT breakfast and lunch choices - nothing too fancy - but they deliver the classics with style. It has the feel of a simple 'luncheonette' (you can sit at a counter if you like) but with an updated touch.
