By the way, I'm not talking about the Texas Roadhouse that's been rumored to be coming to Ocean County for the past few months.

Don't get me wrong though, I'm excited to get my hands on some of those honey cinnamon rolls.

This will be the steak chain's third Jersey Shore location, but it will be the first restaurant that's built in a new style.

The new restaurant is going to take over a building that's stood vacant for some time, so it'll be nice to have something in this location again.

The building the new chain is taking over used to be a Manhattan Steakhouse, and was also Nino's Coal-Fired Pizza at one point in time.

It's a place that's known for its steak and seafood, and I remember as a kid it was one of my dad's favorite places to go.

So much so that when I got my driver's license in high school, we went to this chain for a nice celebration dinner that wouldn't break the bank.

What New Steak Chain Is Opening A New Location At The Jersey Shore?

As I mentioned, there are already two of these places near the Jersey Shore; one off of Hooper Avenue in Brick and another off Route 35 in Middletown.

This new restaurant though will be different than those two.

The chain is testing out a new type of restaurant called a "Joey Prototype".

That means the restaurant is smaller than a traditional one, and features new technology and a larger dedicated spot for take-out and to-go orders.

According to APP, a brand new Outback Steakhouse has gotten approval to open up in Ocean Township!

No word however on an opening date.
