The Beach Tavern- Monmouth Beach, NJ
The Beach Tavern is an appealing spot nestled by the Channel Club marina in Monmouth Beach that offers a nice atmosphere and plates with beautiful presentation, however, the quality of the food (with exception to the oysters) is not as good as it looks. Fish seems like it is defrosted. Do not get the spicy tuna burger unless you want a rubber. Meals are overpriced for what you get, and I don’t think anything here outside of the oysters and salads are even enjoyable. The oysters are the only thing we keep coming back for. During their happy hour Mon-Fri, they offer $1 oysters, and they are fresh and delightful. You can slurp them right off their shell with no problem, and the happy hour deal is spectacular.
This is a cute spot for drinks or a light meal, but if you’re looking for fresh, good quality food, this would not be my recommendation.
