We had had many great years of fun there until the hurricane. They always had great bands playing, Saturday afternoons were the best the place went wild when the Mueller Brothers Band rocked the house. We really miss those days hopefully soon they will find another place to continue on..

Please remove this listing. Harrison's Club was so badly damaged by the hurricane that it was torn down last year. A sad end to a landmark since I was a teenager.

Hurricane Sandy destroyed this place. As per news paper reports the owner did not have the insurance to rebuild. I also heard he is not rebuilding, will be selling the land. Watch some expensive condo's go up. So sad I've been coming here since I was a teen and sneaked in because I was underage to drink.

This great night spot and beach club was completely destroyed in Super Storm Sandy. Very sad, the front is there and the back is completely wiped off the beach.

It had been a crowded, dated place before the storm but being beachfront was the big attraction. Sorry to see the storm do so much damage down the shore. I've been back to the area many times but not to the Surf Club - it's still closed since the storm. I hope the area can recover! Please pray for those... More

I was just down there on Oct 9, 2013. The amount of damage that the fire did was 6 blocks and it was a 10 alarm, even Staten Island came with there special hook and ladder that has the nozzle on the top of the ladder, that's what they needed. A few owners on route 37 leading to Seaside Heights... More

All of Seaside Heights has been destroyed. Be careful but optimistic with your plans for the summer of 2913
