    I guess there's everything here to do that can fill your day at the beach. Food, games, souvineers, you name it. It's just a big long boardwalk on the edge of the beach where the dunes ought to be. But when I go to the beach, I'd much rather relax.... so it wasn't really my cup of tea... although it did look like a lot of fun for kids!!!

    Enjoying my frozen drink 4 more images

    After spending some time walking the boardwalk here at Point Pleasant Beach (Jenkinson) we decided it was time to grab something to eat. We stumbled upon this place and it looked like a nice to grab something to eat before heading off to our next destination.

    I will say that the restaurant is really nice, it has an area where you can just ordered from the counter and well as two sit down areas, one upstairs (where the wait was over 1/2 hour) and the downstairs (where we decied to eat).

    The waitress asked if we wanted to sit outside (was the back of the restaurant with a view of the street) or inside. It was a nice day and we decided to eat out doors.

    We were handed our menus and I definitely wanted some seafood since we were near the beach. Ferni doesn't eat seafood and decided on a burger. But first, I wanted a nice cold drink (I can't exactly recall the name of this frosty drink), Ferni was driving and decided on a coke for his meal.

    The food was brought out quite quickly. My shrimp were fresh but the batter was a bit thick and a bit on the bland side, Ferni said his burger was BLAH!!

    The prices are a bit overpriced for what you get here as well and I don't think we would bother to come here for food, maybe just drinks!!

    We d

    Favorite Dish: I ordered the shrimp and chips which were okay and Ferni had the burger (which looked like it had been frozen) and said it was BLAH!!

    Jenks is a big club on the Point Pleasant Boardwalk. One of my cousins, who works for the Coors Light Distributor for most of the Jersey Shore, sometimes manages promotional events here. On July 8, 2007, I attended the "Ice Cold Daze" party at Jenks -- and some of the Coors Light girls insisted that I take a photo with them! :)

Point Pleasant Tourist Traps

  • by Mo_the_writer Written Jun 23, 2006

    The boardwalk itself is a tourist trap in the summer... the prices are pretty high and the parking is a whole other story--$20?! If you really want to see Point Pleasant at its finest, go before tourist season--there is no trash on the beach from rude visitors or aluminum cans all over the jetty.

    Unique Suggestions: - The mini golf was really fun--you can't miss it
    - The Jenk's Aquarium is an awesome place to stop for the kids
    - The waffle sundae sandwich is to die for
    - Movie nights on the beach take place on Sundays

    There is so much wildlife and beautiful landscape in the back bays.

    Many times of the year the best fishing is behind the islands.
