It is always a delight to stroll the boardwalk in Asbury Park. Plenty of good restaurants and great people watching!

“High priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

Unfortunately I grew up in this area so I remember what the boardwalk used to be. It was affordable for everyone. Even though I am happy that they fixed some of it up, it's a lot of high end restaurants and expensive stores. It's not a "real" boardwalk with the rides and some a variety of places to eat anymore. As for just strolling, the beach is beautiful, love Convention Hall, in the summer there's fireworks every Wed and after hit the little club on the south side of Convention Hall(outdoors) for music and a $5.00 drink. Asbury is a lively area and pretty safe. They have plenty of police patrolling. I am hoping they are going to continue the restoration process so that we can enjoy it even more.

“A lovely place to walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

Not the boardwalk of my childhood, teeming with rides and attractions, Asbury Park is now a good destination for a pleasant walk. There are usually lots of people around so it is fun for people- watching, there are entertainers performing, and a variety of places to eat and drink, although most are pricey. There are a few shops with shore- related merchandise, especially the ones inside Convention Hall. You have to pay for parking, which is a nuisance, so park in Ocean Grove, which is free, and walk to Asbury Park on the boardwalk from there. If you love the smell of the salt water and the sound of the surf, a visit to Asbury Park's boardwalk is heavenly.

“Old-fashioned, NJ boardwalk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2013

Dined at Tim McCloone's Supper Club on the boardwalk. Lovely view of the ocean, great food and service. Quiet crowd, relaxing ambiance! Great day trip to the NJ shore, easily reached from greater Philadelphia area!

“Kind of cool if you're in the area”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

There are overpriced restaurants, a couple of bars, some ok shops, a mix of people, of course there's Springsteen lore, and a kiddy splash park. I'm glad I went, but it's just ok.
