Restaurant Review

Brandl is one of Belmar's top restaurants serving contemporary American creative, well prepared dishes using fresh local, seasonal ingredients.


Owner and chef Chris Brandl is a graduate of Johnson and Wales University - Culinary School, He later honed his skills at Redington's Seafood restaurant in Point Pleasant and The Mahogany Grille in Manasquan before opening Brandl in 2002.


Chris Brandl is adept at creating imaginative dishes using the freshest ingredients from local sources.


The interior is attractive with a rustic, yet trendy look with dark earth toned walls, dark wood flooring and wood tables set with linen napkins. The lighting is soft with ceilings have double old waterfront oversized gas street lamps and tropical fans. Walls are adorned with oversized shell food and farm produce artwork


Except for the colder winter months, there is outside dining on the plastic/canvas enclosed front patio.


Not recommended for children.


Brandl's is open year round, six days/week for dinner from Tuesday - Sunday, 5pm-10pm
