Menz is our favorite restaurant over the forty plus years we have been dining on the Jersey Shore. This Samon and oysters are the best. Always fresh from the days catch. Ask for Donna, she's the best server in the house.

The good: SUPER cool inside - lotsa antiques and weird stuff, lotsa two-headed calves (total: 4), that's four more two-headed calves than any other restaurant in the area. The not so good: my stuffed flounder had zero flavor. I could have had compressed air, and I wouldn't have known the difference. And perhaps I should have -- less fat. However,... More

First weekend opened in 2017. Ordered prime rib on Saturday, it was outstanding. Service was great. We got there early--4:30 and it got busy quickly thereafter. Prime Rib may only be a weekend special, not sure, so I would call if that's your craving. Husband loved the sangrias, especially the berry one.

I can remember going to Menz Restaurant as a kid and old Mr. Menz handing out lollipops.... he has since passed away but the ambiance is the same! Family friendly and delicious food. The onion soup is amazing and in the summer you can't beat the green beans. Yes, they are just a side dish, but they are local and... More

Pretty large restaurant and bar. The food is tasty and plentiful. All sorts of wall art as well inside this place. Looks like they are making an outside patio now.

The seafood we use is the freshest and locally caught. We offer mako, swordfish, flounder, and scallops when in season, from our local fishermen. We use only jumbo lump crabmeat. Saturday night our prime rib is certified black angus. All soups are made from scratch with fresh vegetables. Friday and Saturday we have live entertainment with special drinks at our front porch bar.
