Teresa's South is one of my favorite places to go when I'm in Bay Head. I usually stay at the Bentley Inn, which is right down the block from this restaurant. Their food is delicious every single time I come here.
To me, it's one of the nicer places in the Bay Head/ Point Pleasant area that doesn't fail to impress. You always hear about pricey, classy places to go and eat- however, they usually fail to impress when it comes to food quality. A lot of places down the shore can charge a lot for seafood and dishes just because they're by the water and it's a vacation spot. And although this place is a bit pricey (not terribly) it never ever fails on good food or service. They make simple dishes, and perfect them. One of my favorite things to get is the Penne with vodka sauce. It sounds simple, but they add their own touch by putting in prosciutto and peas. I also love to get their fried calamari dish. They make it with a delicious dipping sauce that I haven't had anywhere else. I've also gotten a chicken dish another time coming here, and have tried a balsamic glazed pork dish that my mother got while I was with her. Everything is always delicious, and the presentation is always beautiful.
Keep in mind that it is a B.Y.O.B. -- However! They have a liquor store, literally, right next door.
The inside is beautiful, cozy, and classy- but to have a really nice night, I'd recommend eating outside in the front. Of course not a very cold night, but even if it's a little chilly and you wear the right clothing; hearing the ocean and just being outside in that quiet, beach-y, and quaint atmosphere that is Bay Head, it will really amp your experience.
To put into perspective how good I think this restaurant really is. I live 1 1/2 hours away from the shore-- however, if I'm in the mood, will make the trip with my family just to eat here.
