South Jersey is filled with great restaurants and it's more than just at the casinos.

As we have chronicled, Atlantic City has so many great choices and now one is getting national recognition.

According to Readers Digest, the Knife and Fork Inn was just named the best traditional restaurant in New Jersey.

They say a traditional restaurant is one that is, "serving dishes that reflect the locale, iconic establishments and places locals rave about" -- a place that is fancy enough for special occasions, has a casual environment, and has people that you know eating there.

The Knife and Fork Inn fits that bill.

Let’s just say more than a few barriers have been busted in the century since. The Ladies Lounge welcomes all who care to take in those gorgeous views of the Atlantic Ocean, while the main dining room warmly invites guests (yes, women as well) to a feast of sustainable surf and turf surrounded by decor that evokes yesteryear. After the meal, take a stroll along one of the best beach boardwalks in America.

Located at 3600 Atlantic Ave. in Atlantic City, it's a landmark building that has been a staple in Atlantic City since 1912.

It has a very unique look on the outside with the knives and forks situated all over the outside of the white building.

If you haven't been to this legendary Atlantic City establishment, stop by for their happy hour, every day from 4 to 6 PM at the bar with half-priced appetizers. It's one of the best in the city.
