Think about all the foods you associate with LBI, and besides breakfast dishes and a bag of sand-covered potato chips, you can find all of them at Barry’s. This counter-service spot just south of Bay Village in Beach Haven serves burgers, Italian hoagies, meatball parms, and really good cheesesteaks - and those are only four of the 20 different sections on the menu. You really can’t go wrong as long as you remember two key things: get the garlic rolls - a dozen doughy balls that you dip in marinara sauce - and finish up at the ice cream bar. There are a ton of different toppings you can choose for either soft serve or a scoop of ice cream, as well as a whole menu of sundaes and milkshakes.
