Restaurant Review


The Inlet Cafe is a casual sea food restaurant located along the inlet that connects to Sandy Hook Bay featuring awesome waterfront views of the dock and NYC Skyline.


The restaurant is best enjoyed during the warmer summer months when you dine on the outdoor deck taking in the waterfront ambiance for an authentic Jersey Shore experience. This is especially a good place for meeting up with friends to relax with steamers and a beer.


The kitchen is run Chef Alex Rogers, a graduate of the Academy of Culinary Arts.


While the meal preparation is not exotic or in a category of fine dining, it's fresh and offers popular dishes typical of the numerous Jersey Shore restaurants.


Their signature dish is their steamers, harvested in Maine and shipped in.


Closed during the Winter


The inlet Cafe has both indoor and outdoor seating and is Child Friendly
