Hey guys new to boating, docked in Toms River. Was wandering if there are any good restaurants in the water, you pull up to for lunch a a couple of drinks.

Waters Edge. Come out of Toms River, head south, compass reading 210. One marker past Lucky Point Marina, on the west side of the bay. You will see white mooring bouys which I recommend you tie up to rather than the dock.
Be careful, it gets slushy in the area of the bouys, when its windy. Also, gets crowded with alot of discourteous, ignorant, assholes, that think nothing of out running you for a mooring. A bay boat will pick you up and take you to the resturant.
Come out of Toms River, go north under the bridge, at marker #27, head east and follow the nun & can markers until the end, nun #18. Head slightly right to Ocean Beach Mairina, after you pass marker #18. Once in the Marina stay to your right, plenty of water. Pass the gas dock & go to the back & tie up at the Channel Marker Resturant. Just opened last year.
Both places are about the same distance, from where you will come out of Toms River.

There is waterstreet also. Haven't been there since it changed, used to be Jack Bakers Lobster Shanty. It's at the very end of Toms River. You head west on the river just south of the 35 bridge and follow it all the way to the end in downtown TR. They have limited slip space last time I was there.

Head south and go to Forked River, Captains inn and Latitides. Both are pretty easy to dock at.

Jack Baker's Waterstreet is pretty good. All the way up the river. Nice outdoor bar.
Waters Edge is now Martells Tiki Bar, fun place but like Art said, lots of ignorant a-holes tend to gather, not to mention the white trash by-car-crowd. Although the live reggae bands and eye candy is usually fun to watch. That part of the bay kicks up in the afternoon with a steady southerly wind + all of the boat traffic, so the advice to stay clear of the dock was right on.

When I go to Martells I prefer to drop my own hook. Unless it's a very calm day boats can get beat at the dock. I've also seen a mooring line break and watched at boat drift inshore through the fleet to the rocks.
I saw it break free and told the cop at the entrance. You should have seen how many people ran when they announced "will the owner of the white boat" over the PA.
There was only 1 black and 1 yellow boat there, guess how many were white.
It can take a while to get picked up and dropped back off however.

Thanks guys, this will give me plenty of homework reading the charts, and practice out in the water. ReelNauti, is it frowned upon if I use my own dinghy to get to the docks, meaning am I taking up dock space and piss people off, if I anchor up and use my dinghy, or should I just wait to get picked up?

If you're in TR you should just try out Waterstreet, Waters Edge is around the corner. Both have bars the Channel Market is just food, I personally prefer a sandwhich I bring for 6 bucks at Wawa or a bar.
