You're saying a lot when you say a restaurant has the best seafood in New Jersey. We are a state well known for its fresh, amazing seafood.

A study just came out yesterday naming the best seafood restaurant in each state, so New Jersey seems to have gotten brand new seafood royalty.

If you're wondering if bragging rights in our state belong to North or South Jersey, you will be happy if you're a North Jersey kind of person.

The titles are being handed out this time by 24/7 Tempo, and the fine folks there are laser-focused on the town of Newark.

Their choice for the best seafood restaurant in the Garden State is a well-known Portuguese Restaurant in the Ironbound that is widely considered the best in Essex County.

Before we announce the restaurant that got the honor in this report, we do want to pay tribute to all the great seafood restaurants in this state, especially the amazing ones at the Jersey Shore. We love you all.

Now on to the best seafood restaurant in the state according to 24/7 Tempo. A huge congratulations to Sol Mar in Newark, an absolute New Jersey favorite.

We took a quick look at the incredible Sol Mar menu, and we wish you good luck deciding between the Paella, Grilled Lobster, or the Jumbo Shrimp. I'd go with the Paella, but that's just me.

We have a new restaurant to add to our bucket list and the longer that list gets, the better.
