Lunch, Garden State Parkway

Hi: Need quick on/off lunch, between Edison and Toms River. Have been to Harold's. Thanks!

  1. After mapping out the parkway on Google, I never realized how few dining establishments are actually close to it. Been to Blue Ginger on the north end of your trip (Iselin), but I think for variety, I'd recommend the outlet mall in Tinton Falls, about halfway between.

    1. Before seeing Toms River as an end point, I was going to suggest Route 37.

      1. Right off the parkway at Exit 123/Rt. 9 South in South Amboy/Old Bridge is Pho Da Nang, a vietnamese restaurant.

        1. Check out what Keyport has to offer...right off the Parkway. McDonagh's Pub is one of the better Irish pub places for grub in the state.

            Or, Nemo's across the street for Asian fusion and/or sushi lunch.

            I recommend the mango chicken or Asian hot pot! Never had a roll or lunch platter from Chef Lee that didn't impress.

          2. Here's a post from a couple of years ago on a similar topic, but it may provide some ideas:
