There are plenty of great dining locations around state, and NJ.com wanted to find the ones that "no one knows about" - and Point Pleasant Beach made the list!

I think it's kind of odd that they would say no one knows about PPB, but I guess when you compare it to the trendier hipster spots like Asbury Park or Red Bank or Hoboken, Point Pleasant is a bit less well-known.

Here's what they say about Point Beach:

Point Beach' is more than just Jenkinson’s; there are tasty and diverse options in town. First, pick up a sandwich at Joe Leone’s Italian Specialties, one of the state’s best Italian delis. Then order a burger at Frankie’s Bar & Grill. Spano’s Ristorante Italiano was one of ten finalists in our N.J.'s best Italian restaurant showdown. Closer to the beach, the Broadway Bar & Grill, for great wings. For seafood, Red’s Lobster Pot and Spike’s Fish Market & Restaurant. For farm-to-table organic food and juices/smoothies, try Local Urban Kitchen. Can’t forget Hoffman’s, one of the state’s most highly-regarded ice cream shops. Nor The Ark, a popular restaurant/bar where they’ll cook that fish you caught.

Going down that list, I can agree with pretty much everything. Spano's is my favorite restaurant, I love the Lobster Pot and the Ark, and Hoffman's is a fantastic ice cream shop with lines around the building in the summer.

Belmar and Bradley Beach are other Jersey Shore towns that made the "unknown" list, and NJ.com highlights places I love like 10th Ave Burrito and Del Ponte's.
