Why You Need to Visit the Asbury Oyster Bar

1. Unique Atmosphere

Did you know that Asbury Oyster Bar is located within the Convention Hall? Built between 1928 and 1930, the hall is one of the most historic venues in New Jersey. It’s located right on the Asbury Park Boardwalk and hosts sporting events, concerts, and programs throughout the year. Spend some time exploring the facility, then make your way to the restaurant for beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean. The interior is sparse and clean, with a few high tops and bar seating.

2. Full Menu

Asbury Oyster Bar is known for serving scrumptious light bites and refreshing libations. Head to the raw bar and indulge in juicy oysters, clams, peel-and-eat shrimp, and chilled snow crab claws. Or, order something off the main menu. Staples include the Caribbean crab cakes with mango salsa and the lobster BLT with avocado aioli.

Of course, no meal at the Jersey Shore is complete without a great beverage. Choose from a wide range of unique cocktails (we love the Mediterranean Mule with fig vodka, ginger beer, and fresh lime juice) or opt for a glass of wine.

3. Awesome Happy Hour

Visitors can stop in for happy hour every Friday from 3 to 7 p.m. Take advantage of food and drink specials like $1 clams, $2 Virginia oysters, and $5 select drinks. Cheers!
