Wally’s has been a family-owned and operated Surf City breakfast and lunch landmark for over 40 years–and that tradition continues with the recent change in ownership. The Tomkos and their extended family have been enjoying their summer home and Surf City’s beach for over a decade. The idea of some day owning and operating Wally’s (previously known as Wally Mitchell’s) was bandied about for many years while sitting on the beach at the end of 8th Street. In October 2014, the stars aligned and it became a reality!

With a seasonal location in Surf City, and a year-round restaurant in Barnegat, Shore Fire Grille’s menu offers something for everyone. Gluten-free options such as their crabcakes also are available. It doesn’t require a special occasion to dine at Shore Fire Grille. All you need is a couple bucks in your pocket and excitement about a good meal. Popular starters such as potato planks, fried pickles and the nacho platter. But their main focus is burgers.
Burgers at Shore Fire Grille are not only made from beef. Salmon patties are made from fresh salmon and fresh dill, crab cakes are homemade and tuna caught right off of Long Beach Island is used in another burger. Scallops, shrimp and Mahi-mahi are all possible choices.
Wings also are a huge seller.
Sides such as onion rings are made from fresh, sliced, white onions, hand-dipped in beer batter; baked apples from fresh apple; and steak fries are hand-cut then baked and grilled to order, not fried, so they are never greasy. Mac and cheese and cornbread are perennial favorites.
Cole slaw is made with a “cool sauce,” a mayonnaise-less, cilantro-lime-cream sauce, also served with their smoked poppers and items on the burger bar.
BBQ is done differently, too. It begins as the “low and slow” traditional dry rub made with seven to 14 ingredients, an array of different flavors to go with different meats, cooked as tender as can be, yet flavorful, too
Shore Fire Grille features an open kitchen, a product of the layout of a former Chinese restaurant and the inclination of the chef.
With everything so clean and fresh and basically done to order, it’s great that you can look in the kitchen and actually see your meal being made.
