LAKEHURST, NJ – If you’re looking for a great night out, but without the crowds of these huge downtown al-fresco dining malls, you might want to check out Luigis in Lakehurst. Luigis is a great off-the-beaten-path restaurant located just west of Toms River the little downtown area of Lakehurst, between Lake Horicon and the Joint Base. They have about a dozen outside tables under the cabana and with live entertainment each week. The best part about Luigi’s outdoor dining is that it has always been there. It wasn’t just thrown together over the past two weeks, it’s a nice, permanent outdoor dining space.
Friday night was live music and did we mention, they have full bar service for guests?
The food at Luigis is exceptional and I can’t remember ever having a bad meal at this place. The staff was kind, courteous and masked up. Everything about the outdoor space was clean and fresh and with the quiet downtown ambience it’s a nice place to have a nice quiet family dinner out.
Across the street, you can get desert from Mrs. Walker’s Ice Cream. If you want to walk it off afterwards, Lake Horicon is right around the corner. So, get out there and support to great local Jersey Shore businesses in downtown Lakehurst.
