8 Places Locals Recommend For Juicy Prime Rib On The Jersey Shore

April 24th is National Prime Rib Day.

Most diehard carnivores will tell you that every day is National Prime Rib Day in their world.

Who Has The Best Prime Rib On The Jersey Shore?

I will tell you ahead of time that one place in Monmouth County was the overwhelming choice for the best prime rib according to the locals.

According to my sources which include numerous food pages on social media, thousands of people recommended this old-school place, and it takes the crown for the best prime rib in Monmouth & Ocean County.

That place is Four Winds Restaurant on Jefferson Avenue in Manasquan.

According to Only In Your State, The prime rib is the star of the show. You can go for the 20 oz. or opt for something larger…32 ounces of perfection. And it’s not just big, it’s fantastic! Four Winds only uses Sterling Silver Premium Beef – the top 12% of beef available. It’s hand-selected with a strict aging requirement of 21 days. If you’d like, it can be grilled upon request.

My friend, Mike has been here twice in the last month because the prime rib is that good. He ordered the 20-ounce cut and said it was so huge that he couldn’t imagine being able to even make a dent in the larger cowboy cut.

In this article, I’m trying to stay away from traditional steakhouses like Char, Prime 13, Sinners, and Flames because most of them have excellent prime rib, and I don’t want to create a steakhouse listicle.

I’m also staying away from chain restaurants like Texas Roadhouse because I want the focus to be on locally-owned restaurants in our area.

I think if you’re in the mood to have a slab of beef, you should have options aside from the obvious, steakhouses which tend to be a bit more costly than let’s say your local diner or café.
Let’s look at where the locals go for a juicy piece of prime rib on or near the Jersey Shore.

  • Four Winds Restaurant - 1316 Jefferson Ave, Manasquan, NJ 08736

    This was without a doubt the #1 choice for prime rib among those who weighed in. If you’re not hungry enough for a slab of their famous prime rib, feel free to order from the lunch menu. Try the prime rib dip, 12 ounces of thinly sliced prime rib on an Italian roll accompanied by a cup of au jus.
    They also offer an open-faced prime rib sandwich, 12 ounces of thinly sliced prime rib piled high on garlic bread topped with frizzled onions and melted mozzarella cheese.
