Behold, the Delaware Avenue Oyster House, a family-owned restaurant and bar in the heart of Long Beach Island.
Focused on the coastal community, Delaware Ave is proud to be a part of LBI’s thriving, locally sustainable restaurant scene.
Under the leadership of chef Britt Rescigno—a winner on Food Network’s Chopped and Beat Bobby Flay—the kitchen is serving up modern tapas-style appetizers alongside oysters and seafood. The fish is caught locally and served fresh daily. For information on the cocktail menu, Oyster House at Home catering option and, of course, in-house dining, visit Delaware Ave’s website.
Delaware Ave is also part of LBI Chowderfest’s Chowder Trail. Their creative Jersey Chowder is a mix of red and white chowders with an added local kick. Tasters will note Jersey clams, Jersey long hot peppers, Jersey tomatoes and even the famous Jersey Pork Roll!
Ahead of Chowderfest on October 1, you can hit the Chowder Trail and become a Traveling Taster, sampling chowders along the island and, beginning September 3, your vote for your favorites. (Delaware Ave is ready for your love!)

LBI’s 34th annual Chowderfest on October 1 will feature live music, chowder for purchase, merchants, wine, seltzer, a variety of beer on tap, and surprise activities. The free event will conclude with an award ceremony announcing the 2022 champions.
Presented by the Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce, which has been serving area businesses and visitors since 1914, LBI’s Chowderfest showcases the barrier island and its bayfront communities. The festival’s focus on locally sourced and sustainable ingredients, unique recipes, and pride of place creates a one-of-a-kind culinary adventure throughout early fall.
