Like many other places along New Jersey coast line the Ocean City has a boardwalk which I often call broadwalk, because it is very broad street for pedestrian made of wooden planks where many parade along the ocean with spouses, kids and dogs....

There's a place a block or two off the boardwalk called Spadafora's Seafood. Excellent food. I had lobster and my mother had scallops. Nice wait staff too. I highly recommend it.
