Celebrate Summer at Surf City on Jersey City’s Waterfront

Jersey Bites received a complimentary invitation to attend this event.

The time is now to visit Surf City, the expansive American bar and restaurant on the waterfront in Jersey City. It’s a total summer happening with a top-notch selection of food and drink along with great views of the Hudson River and New York City.

The venue has seating options for everyone’s styles. Whether you want to relax at the spacious bar, gather around a glowing firepit, take a seat on the sandy beach area, or dine at a comfortable table and watch the boats cruise the area, there’s a spot waiting for you. Go solo, plan a date night, have a friends gathering, or bring the family. Surf City is a great place to celebrate a special event.

We stopped by early on a warm, sunny weeknight evening. Getting there is easy. Surf City is very close to the Bergen Light Rail and there’s plenty of free parking adjacent to the venue.

Executive Chef Franco Robazetti has created a menu with summer specialties to suit many tastes. Appetizers like crispy calamari, guacamole and artichoke-spinach dip are great for sharing. Entrees include seafood and landlubbers favorites. You won’t find better lobster rolls anywhere in the area. Full of tender, fresh lobster meat on a buttered potato roll, it’s a sandwich that defines the season. Fresh seafood dishes like the salmon or grilled Mayan shrimp are served with a medley of steamed vegetables. Sandwiches include a variety of burgers can be paired with a tasty side like their salads, corn on the cob, or spicy fries, and the kids’ menu includes classic crowd pleasers for the little ones, including burgers, chicken tenders, and mac and cheese.

Cheers to summer. Relax and refresh as you enjoy the view. Frozen cocktails that include the Surf City Sunrise, Lava Flow, or a Strawberry Rita are total thirst quenchers. White, red, and rose wine is served by the glass or bottle and there’s a nice selection of beer with some local favorites in half-liter mugs or by the pitcher.

Gather your group and stop by after work. Surf City features a happy hour on weekdays from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. with special pricing on beer, wine, and cocktails.

Don’t miss your chance to visit this Jersey City hotspot. Summer goes by quickly and a trip to Surf City will be a memorable part of the season’s pleasures.
