Beach Haven
13211 Long Beach Boulevard
609-492-3352

Open: Lunch and dinner, daily

Price: $$

Style: Diner-like, but sleek, with subway tile, wood and slate surfaces. Local seafood dominates the nicely priced menu. Full bar.

The Scoop: Opened in 2015 by the same family that owns the neighboring Terrace Tavern.

The Menu: Tapas-style appetizers are abundant and easy to share. Favorites include broiled oysters topped with tomatoes and shallots (pictured), and the charcuterie board. Snapper-turtle soup will be their entry in this year’s Chowderfest. The raw bar features Delaware Bay oysters and Barnegat Bay clams. Mains are mainly creative sandwiches, served with seasoned fries and cole slaw sweetened with pineapple. Fresh-caught tuna from Viking Village is steamed, flaked mixed with mayo and served on grilled sourdough. Other choices include fried oyster po’ boy and fish tacos. The Angus steak sandwich is smotherered in cheddar and caramelized onions.

Heads Up: Seating is limited to 24 stools, six high-tops and a few outside tables. No reservations, so summer weekends can mean long waits.
