Went to try it during restaurant week and loved it. There were 4 of us so we tasted lots and enjoyed all. Apps included lamb chops (our least favorite of the night), fried cauliflower, and pork belly bites, all delectable. The Ribeye steak was so tender, the ribs delicious, I had a sampler of three meats that were amazing. Go... More

My husband ordered babyback ribs and was very disappointed. He was served the narrow end of the ribs and they were very dry. My niece ordered baby back ribs but they brought her St. Louis ribs instead! She was pleased with the way they tasted though. I will say that the service was very good!

We are locals and visit Jersey Shore BBQ at least every other month. Food is consistently delicious. Our favorites include Jersey Shore's meatballs, wings, sausage sampler, The Steve, The Longhorn and Cowboy Dip sandwiches. Homemade sauces are amazing! Service is usually good to very good, but last night we had a "new" waitress who ignored us much of the time.... More

Casual restaurant off the main street, behind local brewery. Plentiful portions. BBQ App was 3 ribs of St. Louis ribs and 3 of baby back ribs. Tasty, plenty, more than enough, could be an entree. Large sliced brisket sandwich and sides (2 sides/$2 - very reasonable). also good. Coleslaw was excellent, fresh, cold. French Fries were zesty. This is barbecue... More

I had the two meat barbecue, with cole slaw and sweet potato fries. So good I could not stop. Finally packed up what I could not finish and couldn't wait for lunch the next day. Great little BYOP place. Excellent food.

My husband enjoyed a nice quiet lunch here yesterday. Good atmosphere (lots of interesting stuff on the walls!), very gracious server, and dependably delicious barbeque. Pulled pork, cole slaw, and mac&cheese were awesome!

We try to get here once or twice a year. Servers could not be friendlier. Food is very good. Tried the half chicken for the first time. White meat was a little dry, which happens. The rib/pulled pork combo was excellent. Sides were very good as well. It's a small location but we were pleasantly surprised that we got right... More

The place is very simple and it's good for a quick meal. The service is good and the food is decent, but not outstanding. Given the very high rating on Trip Advisor and looking at all the prizes they have on their front window, I was expecting more and that is probably the reason I was a bit disappointed. Nothing...

Good smokey BBQ, easy to pull apart and very tasty. Mac n cheese balls and the brisket are to die for. Not a fan of the chicken, but not everyone can like everything. Very small place and usually crowded. Best to call ahead or arrive before you start feeling hungry because there is usually a wait.

I have been returning to this restaurant every year since the store opened. It is great BBQ. The St Louis ribs are awesome. I am from St Louis and I know BBQ. Also try the brisket, oh just try both on the Belmar duo plate.
