There's just something about dining out at a waterfront restaurant. Especially when your view overlooks the beach and/or ocean. Throw in an amazing sunset and you have the recipe for a perfect summer night!

Here's a list of 5 restaurants with amazing views of the ocean from New Jersey Monthly.   I love eating and drinking  at a restaurant with an waterfront view. It's so relaxing and simply the best!

    Fin at Tropicana - Atlantic City

    I love eating at Fin, especially on the patio. The view of the ocean is spectacular and so is the fresh seafood!

    The Schooner American - Cape May

    A fixture of Fisherman's Wharf in Cape May since 1965. What a way to enjoy lunch or dinner aboard the 130-foot Grand Banks schooner. The views of Cape May Harbor are just incredible especially at sunset.

    Laguna Grill & Rum Bar - Brigantine

    A favorite place to visit right on the beach in Brigantine. The seafood bar and their signature drinks always puts me in a great mood!

    Smitty’s Clam Bar - Somers Point

    This is a great place to relax and unwind while enjoying a spectacular view of the Great Egg Harbor Bay. A must visit for clam lovers too!

    Harpoon Henry’s - North Cape May

    Located right on the Delaware Bay in North Cape May. You can choose from well over 250 frozen drinks while enjoying a picturesque striking sunset. You can also sit at one of their umbrella tables with your four-legged best friend.
