The next day I awoke feeling refreshed after a delicious sleep at Daddy O. Our group reconvened and we headed to LBI institution, Tuckers Tavern. It’s an understatement to say that Tuckers is absolutely large and spacious – I truly can’t envision a better beach town restaurant/bar. We took a tour of the restaurant, which is impeccably decorated and evokes a British gastro-pub atmosphere. Think England meets New England, but with a Jersey Shore twist.
We then made our way upstairs to the colorful Buoy Bar rooftop. There we were treated to several appetizers. Now, there are two appetizers I forgot to take photos of, but they were out of this world delectable. One dish was wanton nachos with braised beef, and the other were chicken nachos. I wish I could provide more of a description of both, but wow they were something else. We also had the Buoy Sampler, which consisted of East coast oysters, local clams, peel & eat shrimp, tuna tartar, jumbo shrimp.
