Birthday Dinner - Toms River Area

Looking for a nice place for a family dinner for my Mom's 85th birthday. Should be something with a varied menu so everyone can find something that they like. In the mid-price range. Will be a Saturday afternoon. We are all coming from the north so we'd like to not go too much further south than Tom's River. Someplace by the water would be nice. Thanks.

    1. I've never been except for drinks but maybe WaterStreet Bar and Grill in downtown TR? It's on the water, open during the afternoon, and has a pretty big menu.

      1. Aqua Blu or Across the street at Xena might suit your needs....water view also..!home/...

        but if the water view is Not a Must... there's the Serenity Cafe..

          I've been hearing awful things about Aqua Blu. I've never been there though.
