Kim Marie’s Eat ‘n Drink Away in Asbury Park was named to the top 20 list of Dives We Dig list in New Jersey Monthly’s latest issue.
The criteria for Dives (affordable places to eat and drink) named in the article include: having a big heart, even if it’s a small place; that its allure increases with the setting sun and it must have the three B’s – bartenders, burgers and bands.
“A dive won’t bust your budget. Most all, you leave wanting to come back.”
Kim Marie’s was called a “curio-filled Irish pub” in the listing.
The magazine also noted the restaurant’s “substantial” menu especially the deep-fried Irish egg rolls and the fact that draft beers are served in Mason jars.
Its proximity of one block to the ocean, outside seating and accommodation of dogs were also noted.
