Shore Points Coastal BBQ
816 Arnold Avenue
Point Pleasant Beach
Hours: Wed, Thurs and Sun, 8 am–8 pm; Friday and Saturday, 8 am–9 pm. Closed Mon and Tues.
Style: Don’t let BBQ throw you—the Shore Points menu features virtually every food group, from omelets, waffles and pancakes to burgers, tacos and, yes, St. Louis-style barbecued ribs and chicken. The family-friendly atmosphere and large portions keep everyone happy.
Don’t Miss: For breakfast, dive into Biscuits and Gravy ($11), house-made sausage gravy over two eggs and fresh-baked biscuits; or the Acapulco Wake Up ($10), two soft tacos topped with eggs, cheese, avocado, bacon and salsa. Pancakes come in many flavors–try oatmeal cookie ($9) or banana nut ($9). At lunch and dinner the pulled-Carolina-pork sandwich ($9) comes with a tart-sweet Carolina-style vinegar sauce. The Points steak sandwich ($12) comes with caramelized onions on brioche, and the chicken-and-waffles sandwich ($12) lays a fried breast on a homemade waffle. Be sure to order Queso Fries ($5), fresh cut and topped with crabmeat, cheese and Old Bay spice. Barbecued ribs (large order, $25), chicken (whole, $24) and wings (24 for $25), come with a choice of eight different sauces.
Heads Up: Breakfast is enormously popular; expect a line on weekends. But turnover is quick, and the food is worth the wait.
The Scoop: Chef Ryan Barnhard opened Shore Points in April, in the downtown Point Pleasant Beach spot occupied by his brother Josh’s restaurant, Coastal Chaos, before Josh moved it to the waterfront in nearby Brick.Click here to leave a comment
