This week’s featured mixologist is a North Wildwood native with 30 years’ experience bartending in the area. Meet Brenda Freeman, our bartender of the week and everyone’s favorite bartender at Owen’s Pub in North Wildwood!
Brenda started as a waitress in Wildwood, but the restaurant was in search of a bartender and Brenda seemed like a good fit for the job. The manager taught her the tricks of the trade and 30 years later, you can still find Brenda serving drinks in her hometown! Brenda has been working at Owen’s Pub for the past nine years, but she also works at The Lobster House, where she’s been bartending for 26 years.
Brenda’s favorite parts about her job at Owen’s Pub are the great owners, awesome employees, and friendly customers. She loves to chat with her regulars and the summer vacationers, who continue to come back to Owen’s year after year! If you’re looking for a drink recommendation, Brenda says her regulars come in just for her Lemon Drop Shots, which you can also order as a martini.
Brenda has always loved the Wildwoods, so the choice to stay down here was an easy one. Most of her family still lives around town and her mother still lives in the same house she grew up in! When she’s not working, Brenda enjoys going to the beach with her grandson and always looks forward to visiting her daughter in Florida during the cold Jersey winters.
Owen’s Pub is open daily from 11:30 a.m., serving unbeatable food and drinks at unbeatable prices. Enjoy food specials most days of the week, including $2.95 Cheese Steaks on Mondays and 39 cent wings on Wednesdays, or stop by the bar Monday through Friday from 3-6 p.m. for $5 appetizer specials. Next time you’re in North Wildwood, stop by Owen’s Pub to visit Brenda and try one of her famous Lemon Drop Shots!
