Belmont Brewing Co.
Opened in 1990, the Belmont Brewing Co. (known locally as the BBC) is the OG. Located at the foot of the Belmont Pier, the restaurant's menu has evolved over the years. Favorites, like the classic Lobster Bisque, are joined by new flavors like the Hawaiian-style Poke and Charred Brussels Sprouts. Pair any meal with a BBC original brew (the dark and decadent Long Beach Crude is a local favorite), glass of wine or handcrafted cocktail. Enjoy the ocean views for weekend brunch, lunch or dinner.
Husband and wife team, Ray and Lynn Lasher, are at the helm of this popular dining destination in Belmont Shore. Featuring a menu of classic dishes with contemporary twists, as well as some favorite signature items from the original Lasher's (including the famed meatloaf, fried green tomatoes and creamy clam chowder), Lasher's Kitchen is open Tuesday-Sunday for dinner and offers brunch on the weekends. The thoughtful wine and beer list, coupled with Lynn and Ray's hospitality, have made this a go-to place for locals and visitors alike.
