The 9th Ave Pier

9th ave pier restaurant

Last summer, The 9th Ave. Pier Restaurant in Belmar opened its doors. It was a great place to sit by the water and enjoy a meal or just have a cocktail – until Hurricane Sandy washed it away. Well last week it reopened, totally rebuilt and better than ever! This is further proof that the Jersey Shore is coming back strong.

Located on the pier next to the party boats, The 9th Ave. Pier has something for everyone. It has a large bar and tables that overlook the Shark River, and this year they even opened up a miniature golf course – something Belmar has been missing since they closed down the rooftop mini golf.

If you have never been there, they have a very different way of ordering your meal. The waitress brings you menus and your beverages and then you go up to the counter where you order and pay. They give you a number to put on your table, and bring your food to you when it is ready. Afterwards, you get a separate check for your drinks. I know – it sounds like a lot of work! But it really isn’t a big deal, and it is actually sort of fun.

Lunch at the 9th ave pier restaurant

The menu has a list of starters a mile long – wings, mozzarella sticks, fries, and even fried pickles. You will have no problems finding something that you will like. They also have a raw bar featuring clams, oysters and shrimp. The 9th Ave Pier Restaurant also has great sandwiches – my personal favorite is the crab cake sandwich, a homemade crab cake with a roasted red pepper sauce served on a soft bun. If you like crab, this is the only way to go. They also have a large selection of fried baskets including shrimp, clams, chicken tenders and crab cakes. If you are looking for some real boardwalk favorites, 9th Ave Pier has that covered also: Cheesesteaks, hot dogs, burgers, and my favorite- sausage and peppers.

The 9th Ave Pier is a kid-friendly place in a great location with a little something for everyone!
