Quick! Help on the Jersey Shore?

Going down the shore tomorrow, but just got the crushing news that my two childhood fave joints in Seaside Heights and/or Seaside Park (Sam's Sub Shop and Berkely Seafood) have long since shut. I guess that's what I get for not going back there in, oh, 15 years.

So _now_ what do I do? Any particular chow spots I should know about? Preferably a new place to get fried scallops, but a maybe that's asking too much.

  1. Well, phew, my informants were wrong--Berkeley Seafood is still there, so plenty of fried scallops for me! And Sam's is now Dom's, but doesn't look substantially different....

      Dom's has been Sam's for at least 7 years now. And as of last year, Berkely was still open. However, Top o' the Mast closed...not that we'll miss it.....the food there was terrible. Also Bum Rogers is ok for brunch. There is also a place on the bayside down near Island Beach, I think it's called the Wheelhouse. They have good breakfast.
