Brigantine is filled with delicious restaurants and quick grab-and-go bites for the beach! Below is a brief summary of a few of our favorites. Don’t forget, we are only five minutes from Atlantic City! A few of our favorite AC restaurants include Dock’s Oyster House, Angelo’s and the Fork and Knife. Of course you can’t go wrong with the HUGE variety of restaurants inside the casinos as well!
Cordivari’s: Full of Italian favorites, Cordivari’s opened within the past three years. Although new to the island, the food top notch!
Cellar32: Local’s spot, often visited to meet up with friends or host large family gathers. Diverse menu with everything from flatbread, to steak, to burgers! Oh, and arguably the best quesedillas!
Tiki Taco: New to the island, Tiki Taco is just a few short blocks from the condo. Think Salad Works ordering style but Mexican food! So amazing! (We eat here nearly every weekend.)
In order to stay efficient, the do not offer call-ahead ordering (nor do they have a phone number).
Yianni’s: Excellent for breakfast or lunch (not open for dinner) you can grab traditional favorites or unique Yianni’s originals.
Get there early for breakfast (wait times can be lengthy). Shore Favorite Breakfast sandwich and Avocado Benedict are a few favorites, but everything is exceptional! Grab a flavored coffee to go!
Pirate’s Den: Head to this relaxing beach side restaurant on the North End prior to sunset and enjoy a walk on the beach after dinner. Also great for breakfast!
The early bird specials are amazing! Perfect time to visit with low crowds.
Aunt B’s Ice Cream: Traditional shore spot for arguably the best ice cream at the Jersey Shore. Within walking distance from Coastal Haven (enough to burn a few calories to boot!)
Lines can be long but don’t let that discourage you! They move fast and the wait is worth it!
Soulberri: A five minute drive to the north end takes you to Soulberri for smoothies and bowls.
Lines can be long but move fast. This is a great spot to grab a picnic table and let your kids play Connect Four or take a selfie on the surfboard.
Ernest and Son: Grab sandwiches from Ernest and Son and head for the beach! Choose your own roll in front of the counter and place your order! The home-made beef jerky is also awesome!
Primo’s Pizza: Primo’s has arguably the best pizza on the island!
Brigantine Bistro: Always something for everyone with consistently great food!
Laguna: Drinks on the beach! A perfect spot for happy hour. Check out their entertainment schedule.
Crab Shack: The place for fresh seafood including blue claw crabs. Be sure to order the Lobster Roll!
Mission Cafe: Newer to the island and right across from Ace Hardware, Mission Cafe has amazing smoothies, açaí bowls and many healthy lunch and brunch options! My favorite is the Coffee Date Smoothie!
Sushi: For sushi and Chinese food, head to Yuki Hana (they also deliver). They’ve recently created a website https://www.yukihanabrig.com
Kook Burger: New to the island, Kook burger serves a variety of burgers and shakes. Prefer a veggie burger (like me)? That’s on the menu, too!
Andre’s Wine Bar & Grill: Classic Italian food. Check them out on Facebook for their daily specials!
