Natural Feature
“LBI, as Long Beach Island is known in the local lingo, is a beach lover’s paradise. Even at the widest point of this 18-mile-long island strewn with small shore towns and long stretches of white sand, you’re never more than half a mile from the other side.”

“Mud City has been serving fresh seafood for 20 years in the area. They are the quintessential seafood house with offerings ranging from blue claw crabs to fresh fish; they are known for their Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes. Also, they provide options for non-seafood lovers, such as a filet mignon, roasted chicken and a few others. They do not take reservations nor call-ahead seating. There is an outside patio, where you can order apps and drinks while you wait. It is a BYOB restaurant with the pleasure of offering a limited bar menu, too. ”
