10 Great Places to Eat in Wildwood New Jersey
Wildwood is one of our favorite places to visit at the Jersey Shore. When visiting the island you will find thousands of different places to eat. You will find mom and pop cafes, non-chain pizza shops, good old-fashioned ice cream parlors, burger joints, Irish pubs, sub shops, seafood restaurants, Asian buffets and so much more! Seriously, you can go totally causal in shorts & flip-flops or get all dressed up and go out for fine dining.

Looking for a few great places to grab something to eat? Well, here are 13 of our favorite casual dining places to visit in no particular order. We started off our list with 10, but over the past few years added a few more places that we absolutely love.
Vegas Diner in Wildwood New Jersey

Doo Wop Diner in Wildwood New Jersey

2. Doo Wop Diner - is located right on the boardwalk at 4010. They offer your classic dinner fare but are really known for having some of the best burgers in town! They can get pretty busy during the lunch & dinner rush so I suggest visiting during the "off peak" hours.

Cool Scoops Ice Cream Parlor in Wildwood New Jersey

5. Cool Scoops Ice Cream Parlor - is located at 1111 New Jersey Avenue and is one of the coolest ice cream parlors that we've ever visited. The entire shop is decorated in a retro 1950's and 60's Doo Wop style! While they don't have the best ice cream I've ever is good!
Lobster Shack in Wildwood New Jersey

Curley's Fries in Wildwood New Jersey

8. Curley's Fries - Curley's Fries is the BEST place on the Wildwood Boardwalk to get French Fries! You can buy a small container or go for the family bucket. In addition to having the best fries, I also feel they have the best fresh-squeezed lemonade in town! You will find 2 locations on the boardwalk.
Munchies in Wildwood New Jersey

13. Duffer's Restaurant & Ice Cream Parlor - is located on Pacific Avenue in Wildwood and is a combination restaurant, ice cream parlor and they have their own miniature golf course & arcade for families to enjoy.
