Restaurants are about so much more than just food, especially here at the shore. Restaurants enhance the Shore experience.
They tell the story of survival, reinvention and resilience, not because they wanted to, but because they had to!
Many of our local businesses have been faced with challenges over the last year. Businesses all around the shore are prepping and ready to face the 2021 summer season.
Join us in strengthening our community, one restaurant at a time! There are several ways to show support to local restaurants.
Many local restaurants have their own line of merchandise. Now is a great time to buy a few items and proudly Do The Shore wearing shirts from your favorite spots.
Purchase Gift Certificates
Most restaurants sell gift certificates which can be enjoyed anytime. What a wonderful gift for any occasion- especially this year when so many people are looking to get back to their favorite places.
Take-Out and Delivery
Take-out and delivery remain available options and make a quick, easy and delicious dining experience.
Spread some kindness and optimism. Tell others about what you most enjoy your favorite restaurant and eateries!
