Morrison’s Restaurant was a classic LBI restaurant. It had been serving great seafood since the 1940’s. It’s position adjacent to the intercoastal waterway and large windows provided a parade of boats for diners. The volume of boats dropped off significantly as time progressed. In the earlier days, you would see a continuous procession of everything from well worn garveys to expensive sport fishermen while you enjoyed great seafood.
If you were in a boat coming back from a trip offshore, Morrison’s was a landmark. It wasn’t just the sight of the restaurant and hitting the first slow speed zone on the way home, but it was the aroma of seafood and the faces of the diner’s watching the boats.
Morrison’s was one of the few restaurants on Long Beach Island that offered waterfront dining and restaurants you could visit by boat.
Unfortunately in 2005, the landmark suffered a fire and has not been rebuilt as of 2017.
