Turning Point

Reviewed By Tara Heagele - Trenton, New Jersey

This place is always packed, so expect a wait. But with ocean views and delicious food, I'm not surprised. I had the Big Easy Benedict (a New Orleans style eggs benedict with corn bread, avocado, creole onions, peppers, chorizo, and a cajun hollandaise sauce) and a gigantic s'mores hot chocolate. This was a perfect meal to prepare me for ice skating next to the ocean. I will be back!

All Seasons Diner

Reviewed By Edith G - Haifa, Israel

This is one of my family’s favorite eating spots and so I often join them when visiting in the area.

There is a wide selection on the menu, prices are midrange, average for a diner. The service is especially friendly. The food is consistently good. There is ample parking which is easily accessible from the highway.

A sure place to catch a good meal.

My Kitchen Witch Cafe

Reviewed By Fletch1946 - Fair Haven, New Jersey

My Kitchen Witch is an adorable cafe open generally for breakfast, brunch and lunch. It is lovely and the food is great, but a little far away for us for those meals. However, on Friday night the serve three course, price fix, dinners for $29.95. You can, and should, bring your own wine or beer. There are always two choices ( generally a soup or a salad) to start, three choices (generally meat, fish and vegetarian) to follow, and two choices for dessert. Last night the six of us dined on shaved Brussels sprouts ceasar salad or dairy free asparagus soup to start, bacon wrapped fillet with sun dried mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus, or seared scallops over butter and brown sugar sweet potatoes with grilled asparagus, or a vegetarian curry. It all drew rave reviews. IMHO the desserts are the weak point, not bad but not up to the other offerings. To my taste they are too sweet. But if you like real sweets, you will almost certainly love them. Worth a visit.

We love Lighthouse. This season they are offering more soft serve ice cream flavors than ever before. Last night they offered a mint chocolate chip flavor, which was mint soft serve with chocolate chips on top- great idea!! Service was friendly as always and the prices very fair.
