Attorney General: Seaside Park’s Sawmill Could Have Liquor License Suspended for Serving Alcohol During Pandemic

SEASIDE PARK, NJ – The Sawmill in Seaside Heights was one of 20 bars, restaurants and breweries targeted this week by the New Jersey Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control.  New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said the restaurant could face at least a 10-day suspension of its liquor license for violating the executive order and serving alcohol inside the bar during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The violation was part of a statewide operation by undercover agents visiting bars and trying to order service inside.  No further details were given by the AOG’s office regarding the Sawmill incident, but the bar was not issued a monetary fine for their violation.

“Under executive orders issued by Governor Murphy, businesses licensed to sell alcohol in the state are permitted to remain open during the COVID-19 state-of-emergency, but only for take-out or delivery services of food and alcohol,” Grewal said.  “No table or bar service is permitted, on premise alcohol consumption is prohibited, and alcoholic beverages “to go” must be in sealed original containers.”
