Restaurant Review

The Jersey Girl Kitchen is one of the few restaurants in Wildwood that is a departure from many of the cookie cutter family " touristy restaurants" in Wildwood.

Located at the foot of Morey's Pier and Mariner's Landing, one block from the beach, its casual, upbeat, friendly, contemporary atmosphere is unique among the many other restaurants in Wildwood.

It's a great place to come for drinks, live music, good casual food, and a warm neighborhood vibe without breaking the bank.

Jersey Girl Kitchen is owned and operated by brothers George Mallous and Executive Chef, Argie Mallous. Prior to taking over Jersey Girl, the brothers owned and operated the Pier House restaurant in Cape May --- in its glory days --- before it closed for renovation and reopened under new management. Chef Argie received his formal culinary training at the Johnson & Whales Culinary Institute, while brother George attended the prestigious Culinary Institute of America.

Jersey Girl Kitchen has recently downgraded their menu from having a larger variety of creative, well executed Seafood & Meat entrees, to now having a downsized menu of a variety of salads, soups, sandwiches, and desserts with a few entrees. Nonetheless, the preparation of items is well executed and creatively presented.

They are family friendly with a kid’s menu.

The interior of both the bar and dining room have an attractive contemporary decor. There is live music in the bar area.

The staff, and especially the bar tenders, are friendly and upbeat.

Jersey Girl has recently expanded its attractive outdoor dining patio.

Jersey Girl takes reservations.

Open during the summer season for beginning on Memorial Day weekend for 7 days/week, Breakfast 8am – 1pm, Dinner 5pm - 10pm, Bar is open 4pm – 11pm
