Just moved to Lakewood NJ. Dining recommendations please!

My husband and I just moved to a 55+ community in Lakewood NJ off rt 70 close to Brick and Toms River. Does any one have any good recommendations in the area? I enjoy all cuisines but I'm not a big seafood fan. So far we've had Tommy's Coal Fired Pizza, Houlihans and Smash Burger. Looking for some good non-chain restaurants to check out. My husband is handicaped so we're looking for some wheelchair accessible restaurants. Any recommendations? Thanks!

    1. I definitely second Il Giardinello they food is great.

      Pagoda Tea House even though the decor is very tired they do have good food for that area.

      I would also highly recommend
      The Mill in Spring Lake

      We have never had a bad meal there (and we have had many) everything is delicious and they have a really nice Sunday brunch. It's not that far of a drive from your area.
