We've had new restaurants opening up or set to open here in Ocean County at a rapid clip lately. And we have another addition that we've actually been expecting for quite some time.

It was all the way back at the beginning of May that we told you about Stewart's coming to the food court at the Ocean County Mall.

At the time, we were expecting a summer opening for the root beer specialists, but it would seem that the schedule got pushed back a bit, as the restaurant started serving customers just within the last few weeks.

Of course, the iconic Toms River Stewart's drive-in location stood before the bridge into Seaside Heights at Fischer Blvd for many years until its demolition in 2014, so with the opening of the Ocean County Mall counter, Stewart's root beer makes its return to Toms River official.
