    Breakfast=Committed Pig
    Dinner=Firefly (next door to above)
    Both well discussed if you care to search.

      For the best in the area (IMHO) go the the Shipwreck Grille in Brielle.

        I agree that Shipwreck might be the best spot for a "special" dinner. It's a very nice space and the staff is definitely a cut above many in other local places.

        Firefly could also fit the bill. It is a BYO so I would suggest stopping at the Bottle Shop on Third Ave. in Spring Lake to pick up "better" bottles to make the meal more memorable.

        As noted, the Committed Pig is a fun stop for breakfast/lunch. I would also suggest the Seabreeze Deli on Route 71 in Spring Lake Heights for a cup of coffee and a pork roll, egg & cheese to take up to the beach for breakfast.

        There's more I could mention, but, perhaps, you have some specific parameters in mind?

          Just up the road in Avon By The Sea is Daniel's Bistro By The Sea, on Main St. Great BYOB for dinner, need reservations. Also just a moment up the road in Bradley Beach, Main St is The Buttered Biscuit, great for breakfast or lunch.

              Clementine's in Avon is excellent for dinner. Cajun food

                My vote is dinner at Firefly.
