Once on the island we very rarely head to the south end (we are in Barnegat Light) but our dinner at Carmen's was worth it. The food was great and servers very attentive. Will be back again.

Sorry, don't know for sure. I'd suggest giving them a call. My guess is they will be open at least on weekends until after Chowderfest.
