Ellis Parker, who came from a lineage of baymen, built a restaurant and boat rental facility next to the storied Beach Haven Yacht Club. It was a hub of activity for the fishing, sailing, bay harvesting, and beach lifestyle. At long last, we are very excited to announce our new take, Parker’ Garage and Oyster Saloon on the bayfront in Beach Haven will combine our signature seafood with a deep feeling of Beach Haven’s bygone era. We open late May.
Last year, we bought the former Boathouse Restaurant at 116 Northwest Avenue, on the water in Beach Haven and we’re thrilled to open the new establishment as both restaurant and event hall,
The new incarnation of Parker’s Garage will open in May, building on the culinary tradition that you’ve come to appreciate at Mud City Crab House, the Black Whale Bar & Fish House, Ship Bottom Shellfish and Old Causeway Steak & Oyster House with a focus on creative dishes and local seafood. We’re also pretty excited to have own boat slips.
We’re also going to take our relationship with the Barnegat Bay to the next level by investing in an oyster co-op, where a new generation of local oyster farmers will raise the shellfish that will be offloaded and served right at the Oyster Saloon.
The building, which has been owned and operated successfully as The Boathouse by Baldino family, of Beach Haven since 1995, will see mostly cosmetic renovations to revive historic details and atmosphere of Parker’s Garage. It will also remain a wedding venue for receptions of up to 180 guests.
We’re really looking forward to you checking out the new spot, tying up at our dock, and slurping down some local oysters. Follow us on social media and let us know what you think.
