Who we are

Bum Rogers, spanning five decades, has been a unique, specialty house restaurant and the communal, spirit-lifting watering hole of the indigenous and migrating young and young-at-heart.


We, the Bum Rogers Family and staff, continue to be dedicated to the proposition that you came to this place to have a good time, eat heartily, and depart feeling better than before.



Our History

Four friends came together, with a shared love of the Jersey shore and Bum Rogers. Finally, in March of 2013, we were able to realize our dream and purchase the restaurant, with the goal of restoring Bum Rogers to its glory and doing our part to help the Restore the Shore.


You'll still get our world famous garlic crabs and ice cold beer when you come off the beach or out of Island Beach State Park, but it will be in an updated restaurant with a renovated interior, remodeled bathrooms, and passionate staff. Come back to Bums and hang out with us all summer and throughout the year!
