Restaurant Review

Godmother's restaurant is a family friendly, BYOB restaurant: A popular spot for vacationers looking for good southern Italian traditional cooking at a reasonable price.

The Kitchen is run by chef Hubert who is also the owner and Exec Chef of Black Duck Restaurant On Sunse. Chef Hubert is committed to using fresh, local Jersey produce, and locally caught seafood. Godmothers menu offers a wide selection of traditional and non- traditional Italian dishes, seafood, and steaks, home baked desserts, pasta and more.

The staff is friendly and attentive, though service can be rushed, especially during the summer months.

Come early as they tend to have a long wait during the summer peak months.

They offer early bird dinner specials 5:00 and 5:30 PM, nightly.

There is on street parking close by, though limited during summer months.
