The high bidder for a liquor license being sold by Brick Township is a marina on Mantoloking Road, officials said.

The license was put out to bid in November at a minimum of $500,000. Mayor John Ducey said Wednesday that the winning bid was $611,000 by Barnegat Bayside Services, the company that now owns the former Hinckley Yacht Services site on Mantoloking Road, across from Traders Cove Marina and Park. The facility will be known as Barnegat Bay Marina in the future.

The marina is under construction and is expected to open for business during the spring of 2017. Most of the docks have been built, and a fuel dock will be operational when the facility opens. Ducey said no plans for the site have been formally submitted to the township, though preliminary plans are for a full service marina and a waterfront bar and restaurant. In the future, a small number of condominiums may be proposed for the westernmost portion of the site, he said.

“We always felt from the beginning that itโ€™s a great location for a restaurant, year-round,” said Tony Ferreira, one of the two partners in the business, during a previous interview with Shorebeat.

The restaurant, once completed, will likely be one of two new waterfront establishments in Brick. A bar and restaurant is also slated to be constructed at the Traders Cove site for the 2017 summer season. The new license includes a restriction on it that mandates the establishment must have at least 100 seats set aside as a restaurant section.

    Busy only 5 months and a ghost town after

  • Smokin

    I don’t understand the importance of a restaurant in that location what’s the plans to keep it busy 12 months a year ..It may do ok during spring and summer months but traffic will be just terrible it’s not the greatest now ..So maybe 2 or 3 years another failed business empty building in Brick…Who is going to benifit from this mad decision.

    • Glenn

      If the restaurant is good, people will come. Look at Outback, Brick House and others. If it sucks, well look at Joe’s Crab Shack, Red Robin(?), Ciao, etc.

      • Smokin

        The restaurants you mention above are established business and on main busy roads not at the end of mataloking road..a quiet road in off season not the same good or bad food it’s going to suffer

        Like I said, if a restaurant is good, people will come. Ever try to find a parking space at Denino’s on a Friday, or virtually any other night? Perhaps Denino’s should move to the marina w/more parking and now a liquor license!!!

      • Smokin

        Deninos outstanding food agreed but there in a busy location ..I’d love to see a place do well and may even give them a try but at the end of mantoloking in off season is a quiet area…Hope for the best for who ever tries ..
