I am based in the Toms River just now. The issue you face is primarily your draft, but you can still get by with care.
First off, you can try the waterfront restaurant just south of Good Luck Point on the Bay. I don't know the current
name, but it's hard to miss since there are quite a few moorings just out from the piers attached to this property. The restaurant also has some sort of launch service
, but maybe only on weekends. I have not been in there for some time and am not current
On Toms River itself, one possibility is the cove just east of the Toms River YC (roughly 39-56.7/74-09.9), from which you can take the dink to the Island Heights pier on the north shore of the river and perhaps find an eatery in this nice little town. You might also wander into our cove on the south side of the river just above Long Point (roughly 39-56.0/74-08.9) and if you look halfway presentable (smile), one of our curmudgeons could perhaps arrange a lift
to an eatery of local repute. No guarantees, but there's a chance.
