Most of these spectacular restaurants I have been to. Some of these restaurants have fireplaces. They are inviting, especially in the winter. Cozy to me reminds me of that warm feeling when you walk into a place.

There are a couple of different food groups that make you think of spring or summer and winter. Seafood is usually a spring and summer thing, especially in New Jersey. But, for me, delicious scallops are what exactly I need to warm up in the winter. I can eat them year-round.

My husband would always choose steak. Yes, steak screams winter, and cozy, and the extras like mashed potatoes or baked potatoes. We can't forget about the warm soups that are perfect for the winter months.

Some of these restaurants are pricey and some are not. Most are family-owned restaurants that are just unbelievably delicious. You will not be disappointed with these nine fabulous New Jersey restaurants. Most are very unique and truly loved in their communities.

There is one extra cozy restaurant that I love that's in Monmouth County in Keyport. Drew's Bayshore Bistro.

The coziest and the warmest atmosphere is what you'll find at these 9 restaurants in Ocean and Monmouth County here at the Jersey Shore, in my opinion.

Heading out to a nice restaurant with family is something you just might need right now. Why not make it a cozy restaurant that you will love?

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
