The Mill Spring Lake

Hey hounds,
My daughter and boyfriend are up from N.C. and are in search of raw oysters. I was planning on sending them to the Mill. What is everyones opinion on this place.??? If not where in Monmouth County (we are in Wall) whould be great???

  1. The Shipwreck in Brielle has the best selection of oysters in the area. They could try the Happy Hour at the bar on weeknights to save some money.

    I like The Mill for its bar, but, I wouldn't send anyone there specifically for oysters.

    Maybe, Klien's in Belmar is worth a call as well.

    1. Avenue up at Pier Village in Long Branch should have a couple of varieties as well as the Shipwreck south of you in Brielle.

      Otherwise for the greatest variety, you should try the Blue Point Grille in Princeton.

      1. I second JJ's response about the Avenue. Even Rooney's up the street a bit has a nice selection but my first choice would be Avenue.

          Avenue serves delicious perfectly shucked oysters. They serve them appropriately with mignonette and cocktail sauce. They offer reduced prices on oysters and clams during their happy hour.

            This is what we had last time at Avenue the Seafood Tower...
            Great West Coast & East Coast Oysters, 3 dipping sauces, besides all the other goodies, clams, shrimp etc,.......good choice!

        2. Have to agree with MGZ, Shipwreck would be my pick.
