The Jersey Girl Bar and Restaurant is one of the few upscale restaurants in Wildwood. It's 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, It's upscale, contemporary atmosphere is unique among the many other restaurants in Wildwood.
In 2018, Jersey Girl came under new management. It is now owned and operated by brothers George Mallous and Executive Chef, Argie Mallous. Prior to taking over Jersey Girl, the brothers owned and operated the closed, popular Pier House restaurant in Cape May. Chef Argie received his formal culinary training at the Johnson & Whales Culinary Institute, while brother George attended the prestigious Culinary Institute of America.
The menu at Jersey Girl has a decidedly "Old Pier House" touch to it, consisting mostly of well prepared Seafood & Meats. You would be hard pressed to find a pasta dish on the menu.
The interior of both the bar and dining room have an attractive contemporary decor. There is live music in the bar area.
Jersey Girl has outdoor patio dining and validated complimentary parking across the street.
Jersey Girl takes reservations.
Open during the summer season for dinner beginning on Memorial Day weekend for 7 days/week, 5 PM to 10pm

New Jersey Leisure Guide strives to provide analytic restaurant reviews .
The methodology used is research, analysis driven --- as opposed to that of a single restaurant critic or a viewer comment posting board.
Data is gathered from our viewers e-mail restaurant comments, Internet research, and professional restaurant critics. The data is sorted, (weeding out the obvious biased, "bone to pick", and out of consensus comments), analyzed, and the review is created.
