Shady Rest- Bayville
Caffrey's on Route 9 in Forked River makes a great bar pie - I wouldn't really recommend their restaurant, it's pretty mediocre, but their bar pies rock.
Also try Osaka in Barnegat, right on the bay. It's the best sushi in southern Ocean County, actually the best Japanese food. It's BYOB, gets alot of boat traffic, and is a pleasant place to spend an evening in the summer or fall.
A bit further south, in Mayetta, go to Antoinetta's on Cedar Run Dock road, or the Octopus' Garden about a1/4 mile further - both are upscale seafood, with the former having the more nouvelle menu.
