If you’re a foodie and heading to Long Beach Island this summer, Beach Haven’s Chicken or the Egg—affectionately known as “Chegg”—is a must-stop, no matter the time of day. You’ll find yourself in good company, whether you’re seated in the famous dining room (featured on the Food Network!) or ordering through the take-out counter to grab the famous wings, sandwiches or platters to go. The eatery is open 24/7 all summer season. Early in the morning or late at night, Chegg’s friendly atmosphere brings together all generations, one plate at a time.
Take one look at the colorful, generous menu, and you’ll see it gives chowder a place of honor. A champion many times over in LBI’s annual Chowderfest, Chegg’s New England white chowder was the favorite among the festival’s Traveling Tasters last year. The award-winning chowder is filled with applewood-smoked bacon, fresh vegetables and clams.
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.
Ahead of Chowderfest on October 1, add Chegg to your road-trip itinerary anytime throughout September. You can hit the festival’s Chowder Trail and become a Traveling Taster, sampling chowders along the island and, beginning September 3, your vote for your favorites (including Chegg’s!).

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.
