SOMERS POINT - For years, we have been fascinated by the red brick and wood structure located at 800 Bay Ave. in Somers Point. Something about the building with its many interesting architectural details demands your immediate attention. Maybe its the wrap-around porch that leads to the comfortable foyer, or maybe the sweeping vistas extending out to the barrier islands, but the building definitely has a personality all its own. Several restaurateurs have tried and eventually failed at making a go of it in this very same spot. Hard to believe, since the location has so much going for it. Restaurant concepts are much more fleeting than sturdy structures. Through several semi-successful concepts, the now simply named 800 Bay Restaurant & Bar, may prove to be the one that finally succeeds.
