Located in downtown Belmar, Brandl serves up the finest innovative American cuisine. Chef/owner Chris Brandl, a Johnson and Wales graduate, opened the doors to his namesake restaurant in December 2002 creating a unique dining experience. He has accomplished just that with distinctive dishes such as wild boar chops, Bone-In filet mignon, Hawaiian Spearfish “Nairagi” and grilled Caesar salad, as well as his signature crab cakes. Meals come to a happy ending with delectable desserts concocted by Brandl’s on premise pastry chef. Enjoy your meal in Brandl’s deep-hued dining room, or out on the patio overlooking a courtyard and waterfall. Brandl also does on/off premise catering for any size party. Live jazz is performed on Friday nights and other events are regularly listed on Brandl’s website. Among the best the Jersey Shore has to offer, Brandl lives up to its expectations.
