Charlie's Bar


Charlie’s is one of the restaurants participating in Somers Point’s Restaurant Week.

1. Dine around town

Think of all those times you’ve looked up a place to eat and been overwhelmed by all the options here in South Jersey. Chances are, quite a few of them were in the small, but flavorful bayside town of Somers Point. Why not seize the opportunity to give 16 of the town’s finest eateries a try during its 8th annual dine-around event for 10 days from Friday through Sunday, Nov. 3 to 12. Each location will offer a prix-fixed menu for lunch, dinner or both, at affordable prices.
