The Tuckahoe Inn at Beesley’s Point in Marmora is a definite stopping place for lunch. In addition to a menu with choices to please every discriminating palate, their early bird fare, beginning at noon is a real treat. Aside from being reasonable in price, there are ample choices from seafood and chicken to beef. Meals include a salad or soup, entree with potato and vegetable and a dessert of ice cream, rice pudding or luscious bread pudding with bourbon sauce.

My wife and I chose the prime rib and received an ample, dinner-sized portion of perfectly cooked, medium rare beef that was tender and succulent at $18.95. The summer squash side was cooked to perfection as were the potatoes. Topping it off was a decent-sized glass of wine for $5.00—unheard of these days. This dinner-sized lunch with a total of 4 glasses of wine was $59.00.

We have returned to the Tuckahoe Inn many times and have never been disappointed. If you’re in the area, give it a try. You won’t be disappointed.

Johnson's Popcorn

Reviewed By PhiladelphiaMary - Philadelphia, PA

This is a definite stop (at least once) whenever we are in Ocean City - there are a few storefront locations on the boardwalk. Absolutely delicious caramel popcorn! Popcorn is also available with additional flavors of cheddar, artisan cheese, peanut, dark chocolate drizzle, classic butter. When getting one of their (few different sizes) ‘Johnson’s tub’, ask for the top to be left open and they will ‘overflow’ the container into the bag of your purchase, getting extra deliciousness to enjoy! Worth the calories! If you bring back your ‘Johnson’s tub’ on a return visit, it is a ‘refill’ and you are not charged for the purchase of another ‘tub’.

Bennie's Bread & Rolls

Reviewed By RRanella - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania

They have just about anything to choose from. There lunch and breakfast sandwiches are amazing. Their homemade bread is the best. Best of all, they have an assortment of Italian deserts. This is one of the best café / bakery, call it what you want, in Ocean City, NJ.

Fractured Prune Ocean

An Independent, Incensed Fractured Prune Legacy Store. Hot- Hand made donuts made to order

Reviewed By Fiddlesticks727 - Providence, Rhode Island

We got an assortment of a dozen donuts to try. I tried the peanut butter and the Ocean City Sand (cinnamon/sugar) donuts. The peanut butter was a bit disappointing because there wasn't a lot of peanut butter flavor--it was very rich, though, with the chocolate on top. The cinnamon sugar/OC Sand donut was delicious though. It is a bit greasy, as expected with a cake donut, but it was very good. I will be back to try a few other varieties. I hope they will have more selections of yeast donuts and filled donuts that I can try in the future.

Custard Castle

Reviewed By SuzeeQL - Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey

What a great treat! The Castle has many favors and always features a homemade one. Tonight was strawberry. Rich, creamy with chunks of berry. Delicious! The shakes are thick and the service is awesome. They have a drive thru window too. The only thing lacking is frozen yogurt.

Smitty's Clam Bar

Reviewed By thrifydutchman - Reading, Pennsylvania

This is a spot we stop by every time we are in ocean city. Prices are reasonable but there is a wait if you show up after 5 pm- I suggest you get there at 4 to avoid a line. This is a bring your own bottle joint, if you want to bring wine or beer it's up to you. They usually have a casserole dish on the menu and they don't "skimp" on the seafood portions. My dish had alot of shrimp and scallops in it. Mostly happy with this place.

Tokyo Mandarin

Both Chinese and Japanese Restaurant

Reviewed By trendytravelers2 - Staten Island, New York

Stopped in for dinner, saw it from the road. A small restaurant but very classy. It is a place you could show up in sweat pants or dressed to the nines. The wait staff was well dressed and very professional with a friendly flare. The shrimp spring rolls and the sushi were outstanding. It was enough to fill us but we had ordered Teriyaki chicken and a walnut shrimp. Both were cooked fresh and delicious. I saw some other orders at tables close by, can't wait to return.

We are a seasonal retail bakery. Please call for hours open.

My daughter in law is certain that dots creme donuts are the best in the universe. She is an amazing baker and cook and says that Dots creme donuts are the perfect combination of cream filling and crusty cake shell. A perfect way to start the morning. Her kids even named their dog Dot. We also have serious fans of the apple fritters and Boston cream donuts. The turnover in the bakery is fast and everything is extremely fresh and delicious.

OC Surf Cafe

Reviewed By Della M

We are always searching out a new place to eat in OC. OC Surf Cafe came highly recommended. We were there during the brunch/lunch time so we ordered nachos and burritos and tacos. The nachos were delicious. My son and I had tacos and my husband ordered the Hurricane Sandy burrito. Our tacos and burrito were very dry and the flour tortilla shells were hard as rocks. I ate the shrimp out of the taco. My husband had to dump a lot of salsa in his burrito to make it edible. The interior is very clean and funky. The service is very good. I don't think they deserve the #1 spot for places to eat in OC. There are many other places, especially Mexican and Greek, that are better. (Red's jersey Mex and Yianni's are very good choices)

The Crab Trap

The Crab Trap The Finest Seafood Restaurant in Somers Point. In business for over 40+ Years! Family owned & Operated. Voted "Best Seafood Restaurant", "Gold 2009 Press Reader's Poll", Voted "Best Lobster Dinner", "Bronze 2009 Press Reader's Poll" in Somers Point.

Reviewed By HaljoHal - San Francisco, California, USA

We celebrated my brothers 62nd birthday and my Dad's 94th with a lunch @ The Crab Trap; we usually go for dinner. It was similarly as good as our past dinner's have been. Very little has changed; a 50+ year success formula -- fresh seafood served in a timely manner that tastes yum.

There's nothing Michelin * or particularly gourmet in any way at The Crab Trap. (but those crab cakes are simply THE best) However, all of our dishes were deliciously 'good eatin' from the salmon to the fried shrimp & coconut shrimp to pecan crusted cod.

The fact that this restaurant offers more diversity of seafood choices than almost anywhere else is truly amazing.

The Crab Trap looks after their guests and we were most happy to have brought a small cake and have it served w/ a candle + "Happy Birthday" sung by a 1/2 dozen of the servers. A special shout out to Michael, our very attentive waiter.
