Clark's Landing Dockside Grill, is a limited menu, dockside eatery located on the Manasquan River. This is a place to go for an inexpensive quick bit to eat --- as an alternative to the many expensive fine dining, waterfront restaurants along the Jersey Shore.
This is a small restaurant with limited window seating, When the weather cooperates, there is additional outdoor seating. However, dockside dining with a waterfront view is a bit of a misnomer. The waterfront views are partially obstructed by the parking lot set adjacent to the restaurant.
This restaurant can be accessed by both car and boat.
In recent years they have downsized the the restaurant in favor of the upstairs banquet hall.
The food is fair, typical jersey shore seafood and American selections.
The service is friendly but inconsistent, especially during the peak summer months.
Clark's Landing Dockside Grill is closed during the winter months.
