With the Super Bowl just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the best local places to watch the game. Although I personally find no better place for Sunday than on my couch in front of my big TV, here are my Top 5 places in Ocean & Monmouth counties to watch America's most popular game.

    LA's

    635 Route 72, Manahawkin

    For those in Southern Ocean County, LA's is one of the best all around spots for football. Conveniently located on Route 72 just off the parkway, you can watch all of the games at the bar and enjoy a wide variety of food and drink from their Happy Hour menu.

    The Spot Pizza Grill

    1426 Route 9, Toms River

    Located right next door to Spirits, "the Spot" is a hidden gem in Toms River. You can watch the game with a big group at the bar - or with a smaller group at a booth - as each booth comes equipped with its own private TV! Don't forget to try the pizza!

    Boston's

    1356 Fischer Blvd, Toms River

    More than just great pizza, Boston's offers fantastic dining and bar seating options. With locations in both Toms River and on Route 66 in Neptune, Boston's is ideal for both Ocean and Monmouth County residents!

    Tiffany's

    Route 37 West, Toms River

    Tiffany's is the one-stop shop for burgers, brews and ball. Located on Route 37 in Toms River, Tiffany's offers a large bar, plenty of seating and several TVs for your viewing, eating and drinking pleasure.

    Moore's Tavern

    402 West Main Street, Freehold

    This place has it all. Looking for a relaxing, intimate atmosphere? Enter to the left and sit at their smaller, quieter dining area. Feeling charged up and want everyone to know it? Take a right and jump into the oversized bar area. The historic Moore's offers HDTV's aplenty and even a big screen on the back wall. This is the place for Sunday Night Football.
