Can anyone give some nice places to eat in this area. Even Pt Pleasant or Mantoloking. I'm staying in Ocean Beach and want nice eating experiences. And I don't consider Crabs Claw an experience!

      I would go to Diamond's in Ortley Beach - very good Italian. Otherwise slim pickins in that immediate area. While I wouldn't call Spikes an "experience" (as the decor is very basic (e.g. picnic tables)), the seafood is excellent - probably the best in the area. Good Luck.

        I would go to Atlantic bar and grill. The food is quite good for the area. It is just before Island Beach State Park about 8minutes from Ortley

          Forgot about the Atlantic Grill. Avidcook is correct ... another good choice.
