I go back again and again for the gazpacho which is smooth as silk and so fresh tasting. The brussel sprouts are amazing too. Sitting on the lawn is a total luxury.

Stripers features local seafood on the water with a sunset view of the river and ocean, private beach, and a waterside bar. Have a drink and an appetizer in one of our adirondack chairs on our lawn, or come inside for a great meal, with plenty of options for those who would prefer an alternative to seafood.
