Need casual/cafe rec for Spring Lake on a Tuesday evening

There is the Green Planet in Manasquan if its just coffee. Interesting coffee drinks and pastries. It's around the corner from Squan Tavern. If you want something "harder", I like Harrigans more than the Porch. A lot of places ate closed Mondays & Tuesdays until late June. Also try the Union Landing in Brielle. Outside seating with a view if the marina and river.

Great Eats in Fort Lauderdale.....

Based on where you are staying, don't overlook the Bahia Cabana at the Days Inn. I wouldn't stay there. But the food is "dive bar" great and very reasonable. Great views of the intracoastal. Music on Weekend afternoons. You can't eat at Johnny Vs for every meal. :-)

minyon & kosher food for vacation

I grew up in the Deal-Spring Lake area. If you are going to be there for shabbos, Spring Lake probably isn't option. Deal is just under 10 miles from Spring Lake - the Irish Riviera. There no Kosher restaurants in town. However, the Shop Rite in Wall would be your best shopping bet to buy Kosher food.

minyon & kosher food for vacation

I work at an Orthodox company in Manhattan and often have to find Minyan locations for employees working out of town. Checkout godaven.com for services locations. This may help you in deciding where you want to vacation.

Best burger in Mon/OC?

I would agree with most of the suggestions so far, barnacle bills, frankies, harpoon willies (though I hear they are remodeling, not sure that they are open). For a fast food type alternative, try The Windmill in Brick (or even better the original in Long Branch). Great Califonia cheeseburger and gotta love the cheese fries.

Where to go for steak in central NJ?

I've heard good things about brennan's in neptune city on route 35 and bay point prime in point pleasant (summer only). As for Arthur's you can always get the north jersey coast line train into hoboken. Its only a couple of blocks from the station. That way you can also enjoy the beer. :)

Point Bay Prime

Another steakhouse is brennans on Route 35 in Neptune, not far from the bridge into Belmar and Kelly's bar. I've never been but it gets good reviews.

Restaurants on N. Ft. Lauderdale Blvd

I had several meals at Trina, Spuma (restaurant by the pool) and also from room service. All were very good. I highly recommend the potato ravioli, the lamb pizza, and the tuna carpaccio. The hamburger was the only disappointment. For $15, I'd expect something better than I can get in a NJ diner or the Circus Drive Inn in Wall, NJ. Breakfast selections were good as well.

I enjoyed Grapes Wine Bar on Las Olas. You could eat as little or as much as you wanted and the bartenders were knowledgeable about pairing wine and food. Only disappointment was the lack of Pinot Noirs on the night I was there.

Olive Garden to Replace Jersey Freeze in Freehold?

By all that is good, please tell me NOOOOOO. With all the good local mom and pop Italian restaurants, why would anyone eat at Olive Garden.

Jersey Freeze is an institution, maybe not on the scale of the Windmill or Max's or the Circus Drive In in Wall. Home made fast food, that is well priced.

Capt Ed's - Point Pleasant -

Capt Eds is great and now that Summer is gone, the crowds will thin out. Though even in the winter, Capt Eds will have a wait on the weekends. Another place to try before it closes for the winter is Red's Lobster Pot on the beach. Eat inside, the food is better and less expensive than outside.

Moderately priced party resto near Long Branch?

What about the Lincroft Inn? Its well priced, the food is consistent. You can also get an area to yourself. What time of day does your cousin want to have the party?

Restaurants on N. Ft. Lauderdale Blvd

I will be traveling to Ft. Lauderdale next for an overdue vacation. I will be staying near The Atlantic and will not have a car. I'm looking for restaurant recommendations, preferably places that a single diner will be comfortable having a meal and maybe drinks. All cuisines welcome.
