Wildwood NJ vacation
Please any recommendations for good places to eat (mostly dinners) as a family and for my hubby and self on occasion during our 6 day stay!
Although it's a little old school, the food and service at Marie Nicole's in Wildwood are lovely. Also, if you want to venture down Route 9 towards Ocean City, try Karen and Rei's outside of Avalon, although it's frequently very busy.
Wildwood is a tough spot for Chowhounds. I go with family every year and just embrace the greasy pizza at Macks, the Boardwalk fries and lemonade, Kohr Bros. ice cream and hoagies from some deli we always visit (I can't remember the name right now ... it's not exactly worth a special trip.) Last year, I discovered Beach Creek Oyster Bar & Grill--it would be a great place to get away with you hubby for a real meal.
I hope this year to check out Britton's Gourmet Bakery which got a tremendous write up on SeriousEats.com. Supposedly they have a apple fritter that's excellent.
Driving to Cape May for dinner would take about 20 min. On the way into town are the Lobster House and Lucky Bones. Farther in are Cucina Rosa, Freda's, A Ca Mia, and Godmother's, Mangia Mangia. These are all good places for a family.
For a couple: Freda's, A Ca Mia, Washington Inn, Louisa's (my favorite - call at 4 p.m. on a Tues. to reserve a spot for the weekend), Union Park, The Ebbitt Room, Peter Shields (the last is expensive). Suggest you make reservations, as these places fill up quickly in the summer.
