Jenkinson’s Oceanside Dining is a full-service dining room located one of the most popular seaside destinations on the Jersey Shore. Jenkinson’s has been family owned and operated for over 90 years, and you will be treated like family! 

There is always something going on at Jenkinson’s restaurant, with the beach views to the east, and our popular aquarium and indoor arcade next door there is plenty to keep the families entertained.  Jenkinson’s is also known for our live entertainment that will be taking place daily in the restaurant  We have live music, DJ’s and national talents to bring in the crowds. The high-volume, 200 seat dining room is located right on the beach with full views of the Atlantic Ocean.  For the 2020 season, we will be debuting our brand new Oceanside Bistro which will allow guests to now dine completely outdoors surrounded by palm trees for the full beach experience.  
Jenkinson’s menu is a well-rounded menu, with typical boardwalk favorites as well as plenty of seafood items.  We have a great afternoon business with our beach-going guests opting to order lighter fare; salads, wraps and tacos. By expanding into the bistro area n for dining next summer, we will be able to continue serving dinner well into the nightclub hours.  You will learn how to prepare a variety of popular dishes at a very quick pace.
