Chill at the Bar!


"Voted One of the Top 21 Best Beach Bars in America..."

At Donovan's Reef we're proud of this review, but it's nothing new to us.  Since originally opening in 1976, Donovan's has been a favorite spot on Jersey Shore.  Our newly rebuilt oceanfront bar with private, lifeguarded beach easily separates us from the crowd.   And what a great crowd we get; filled with locals, students and beachgoers of all ages.  Plus Donovan's is one of the only bars in NJ that serves cocktails in the sand.  So chill out at our beachfront Tiki Bar, or overlook the Atlantic on our outdoor decks.  Come inside to catch a band or just relax and watch a game.  It's a party, so grab your friends and see for yourself why Donovan's Reef has been named "one of the top 21 best beach bars in America!"
