Where To Dine In Belmar During Jersey Shore Restaurant Week

Updated: a day ago

COVID-19 UPDATE 4-8-2020: All Belmar restaurants are complying with the state-mandated shutdown of their dining rooms until further notice. Some restaurants are offering curbside pickup and delivery. Jersey Shore Restaurant Week has been postponed to May 8-17, 2020, but these dates are unconfirmed at this time.

Three Belmar restaurants will be first-time participants in Jersey Shore Restaurant Week for spring 2020. The addition of Anchor Tavern, Klein's Fish Market & Café, and Marina Grille to the lineup gives you a choice of eight different dining establishments to experience in Belmar between the dates of April 17 and 26.

Held every April and November since 2009, Jersey Shore Restaurant Week (JSRW) is a great time to plan a special date or girls night out, or to experience a new restaurant that you've been wanting to try.

Each of the Belmar restaurant below has planned a three-course prix fixe Restaurant Week menu featuring an appetizer, entree, and dessert for $23.20 or $33.20. Note that the Restaurant Week menus may not be offered every night, so check availability of the special menu with each restaurant before you make a reservation.

During Jersey Shore Restaurant Week last fall, we had the opportunity try some places that have been on our bucket list since they first opened. We dined at Harvest Local Seasonal Cuisine in Farmingdale, New Jersey, and at Bareli's By The Sea in Spring Lake. Both were excellent choices!
