Shrimp and grits

Anybody know where I can find a decent low country version in NJ? I know it's available at a smattering of places, but I'm looking for smooth buttery grits, sweet gulf shrimp and a nice kick of spice from Tasso ham or maybe andouille.

  1. Look for the reopening of Drew's Bayshore Bistro in Keyport. End of conversation, his shrimp and grits are outstanding!!

      Drew's has reopened and shrimp and grits ARE of course on the menu...b t w, the new place is great, and Drew's food continues to WOW!!

    2. Try the Brickwall tavern in Asbury Park.

      1. I agree with tom246. The best your going to find is at Drew's. Look for his new place to open in a few weeks.

        1. I'm not a huge fan of Drew's generally, but unless you can get ChefMd to come to your house, there's no place better to get shrimp & grits.

          1. Had them a few weeks ago at "Fish" in Asbury. The serving was big and quite tasty....,
