Bielat Santore & Company - Eye on the Shore

Share Article

The resurrection of Donovan's "By the Sea" Reef has been approved for summer 2014.

All hands were raised in favor of the reconstruction of the popular beachfront tiki bar, Donovan’s Reef from the Borough of Sea Bright planning board. When Hurricane Sandy demolished the Sea Bright restaurant and bar in October 2012, fans lost hope that it would ever return. Operating out of a temporary location during construction of the main building, the comeback could be as soon as May 15th, just in time for Memorial Day weekend crowds.

Highlights of the venue’s success are: performances from New Jersey natives and music sensations Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi; the largest bar website on the Jersey Shore, and the only shore bar with its own private lifeguarded beach. The new Donovan’s Reef will be built 36 feet above sea level and have a larger bar area accommodating 36 guests. Open every day for lunch and dinner, guests get a view of the beach, volleyball court, tiki bar and outdoor deck.
