Stella Marina is on the boardwalk in Asbury Park so you have a great view of the ocean. The food is well prepared and very good. Good wine list. The service is attentive.

Big Prime location on the boardwalk near the Stone Pony offers great Italian food with big drinks. It's not cheap, so stay clear if you are.
