Once on the island we very rarely head to the south end (we are in Barnegat Light) but our dinner at Carmen's was worth it. The food was great and servers very attentive. Will be back again.

We went there on the recommendation from Mark at the Island Beach Guest house. The food was delicious and fresh. Very nice surprise. Very unexpected. The best steak I have ever eaten. Done to perfection. And the scallops, they melt in your mouth.

We decided to dine early and take advantage of the sunset dinner special. A great meal at a decent price. The meal included appetizers, entree, and dessert and coffee.. BYOB and your appetite as well! And they do accept reservations. 👍🏼

Sorry, don't know for sure. I'd suggest giving them a call. My guess is they will be open at least on weekends until after Chowderfest.
