Had this place recommended to me by a fellow "foodie" (someone willing to travel a significant distance for good food). I was NOT disappointed. Telling the waitress it was our first time there, she promptly recommended the antipasto salad and the thin crust sausage and peppers pizza. Both were home runs. We also ordered sides of sausage and meatballs and... More

Vic's is a classic at the shore. Just celebrated 70 years. The pizza's are good but the Chicken Marsala is to die for.

Feels like it's still the 1960's in this wood-paneled family place, in a genuine not kitschy way. It is a local institution, known mostly for the very good pizza. Expect a short wait at peak times, but you can go to the bar at the far end. We went with friends and had a good time, and the many tables... More

We were taken here by a local and they praised the pizzas here a lot. Parking is easy and there is ample seating inside. We were a group of 5 people and got seated right away. The garlic bread without cheese was just amazing! We ordered 2 large pizzas, one with Italian sausage and one veggie with mushrooms and onions.... More

Omg. The pizza at Vic's is amazing. Whenever my husband and I go to Jersey, we always try to go out of our way to make it to Vic's. The sauce is hands down, the best and I love how thin the pizza is. I've had pizza in Chicago...and Brooklyn, and all across the US, but I'd always vote that... More

One of my favorite pizzas of all time. Unique thin crust pizza with tasty sauce. Start with the antipasto salad for a perfect meal. First visited Vic's since 1975 and still as good as ever.

My husband and I have driven by this place countless times while at the shore so we finally stopped in for lunch this Saturday. The decor was definitely your classic old school family oriented Italian restaurant very cool. We ordered a chopped antipasto with no meat for starters. Let me tell you it was a HUGE bowl of lettuce, roasted... More

Vic's continues to be one of the Jersey shore's quintessential restaurants. Their chopped antipasto salad is still killer, and yesterday's sausage pie was perfect. Service is pleasant and efficient. Highly recommended!!

For more than 4 generations Vic’s Bar & Restaurant has been serving the most authentic and sought after Italian food at the Jersey Shore.
Vittorio “Vic” Giunco opened Vic’s Tap Room shortly after prohibition was repealed in 1933. In 1947 Vic and his son John added our now famous thin crust tomato pie “pizza” to the menu.
Vic’s is a family restaurant that has combined authentic Italian dishes and thin crust pizza, in a casual setting.
All those who have visited Vic’s and enjoyed our homemade Italian specialties & dining experience know why Vic’s is the longest standing family owned tradition at the Jersey Shore.
