Relax Concierge Recommends... (Ocean City, NJ)


Many vacationers at the Jersey Shore already know Relax Concierge for their egyptian cotton linens rentals, luxurious towel rentals and beach item rentals. What you may not know is we provide free recommendations to area restaurants, stores and local area attractions. 

Relax Concierge wants to provide you with the customer oriented assistance you would receive if staying at a fine hotel. Feel free to call us and ask for assistance. If we don't know we'd be happy to look it into your request in more detail. 

The following are just a few recommendations in Ocean City, NJ.Just remember - Ocean City is a dry town. Alcohol (including BYO) is not allowed.


701 Mosaic
701 E.4th St 
Good jerk chicken and specialty alcohol free drinks. Carribbean food.

Aunt Betty’s Ice Cream
2100 Asbury Ave
Very cool ice cream spot perfect for the family. The Rocky Road is sooo good. The line may be out the door but it gives you a chance to decide what to get. It is especially great if you can walk there from your vacation spot . However, but street parking is available. Aunt Betty's has 2 locations. We prefer the vibe the listed location. 

Crazy Susan Cookies 
1345 West Ave and on the Boardwalk
(609) 391-1919 
Cookies are soooo good! Priced about the same as a cupcake or an ice cream and totally worth it. We like to bring these when visiting friends on the island. 

Emily's Ocean Room Cafe at the Flanders
19 E. 11th Street
(609) 398-5700
We like Emily's because its a little different from other Ocean City options.The Flanders is a great spot to walk around and check out the historic and haunted hotel and Cape May-esque gift shops. If walking around - check out the ballroom level where events are held.

Hula Grill
940 Boardwalk
Finally a great spot for healthy eating on the boardwalk. We like their coconut shrimp (did we say healthy ?). It comes with awesome sticky rice and a side salad with delicious dressing. 

Jon and Patty’s
637 Asbury Avenue 
Great spot for breakfast and lunch. One of the few coffee shops in town. We enjoy sitting outside on Asbury while enjoying coffee and the veggie bomb omelettes. Free wifi.

Mallon's Sticky Buns
1340 Bay Avenue 
(609) 399-5531 
The smell is so wonderful when you pull up to the front of the store. The taste is even better especially after warming up for a bit. We dream of 'em. 

1258 West Ave 
Good spot for brick oven pizza and pasta. We love their pasta dishes. They give you more than enough for 1 person. We don’t suggest eating there since it is usually packed. They deliver and do take out. They do not take credit cards so bring cash or plan to stop at the bank machine at Wawa next door.

Positively 4th Street Cafe
400 Atlantic Avenue 
(609) 399-8400
Stop on buy for a cup of coffee. We prefer to bike there. 

955 Asbury Ave
(609) 391-1111
Often recommended by locals. If nice out- grab an outside table.

Who's on First
100 Asbury Avenue
Enjoy a scone while checking out the funky local art. 

Surf Cafe 
715 E 8th St 
Great breakfast spot. Relax and watch the surfing videos in their cool restaurant. Reminiscent of a day in Key West. 

If you are so inclined to leave Ocean City to check out dining options in other towns, check out our listings for Somers Point and Margate.


Animal House
705 Asbury Ave.

Take it from our pup - this is the best pet store around.  Awesome collars.  The owner is very helpful when it comes to the best nutrition options for your pet.
Kidz Creations

Looking for a rainy day activity in Ocean City? Here's a good spot to bring the kids for science, cooking and art workshops rain or shine.
