Bahrs Landing Is Still Standing | Highlands, New Jersey

Bahrs Landing is a New Jersey legend


Bahrs Landing is 97 years old this year, and it amazing because it sustained considerable damage in October 2012 from Hurricane “Superstorm” Sandy, which destroyed many other businesses in the area. 

It is open year-round, and the owners were determined to re-open quickly: 



But somehow it survived, and it will celebrate its 100th Birthday in 2017! 

 

We love eating there, and staring out at the water and Sandy Hook! 

 

I love the food, especially my favorite, Peach Melba! It is so delicious. 😋

 

My husband heartily recommends the crab cakes.  They were named the best crab cakes in New Jersey.

 

Right next to Bahr’s is Moby’s Lobster Deck, serving seafood and ice cream! They are open from May to October with 100% outdoor dining!

 

You can even take a ferry from New York City to visit and have a great meal!

Fort Hancock at Sandy Hook

Fort Hancock

 

Fort Hancock in Sandy Hook was a military fort which operated from 1895 until 1974. 

 

The fort played an important part in defending New York harbor and New Jersey, especially during World War II and the Cold War.

 

The fort is on the Sandy Hook Bay side of the barrier spit of Sandy Hook, surrounding the iconic Sandy Hook Lighthouse.
