LONGBRANCH, N.J. – Jack’s Goal Line Stand is a delicious bar and restaurant owned by Nick and Tim for over 10 years located at 149 Brighton Ave, Long Branch, serving all Americans favorite foods from ribs and burgers to Mexican food while broadcasting sports on over 60 TVs. 

Owners Tim and Nick are lifelong friends that started their career at Jack’s Goal Line Stand by bartending in mid 1996 and in 2007 the two were given the restaurant by the old owner turning the dive bar into a sports bar thriving more than they ever thought possible. 

Jack’s is a family friendly establishment that allows people of all ages to enjoy their amazing food and collection of arcade and classic games. There are also three different bar areas so you will never miss your favorite game while hanging out with friends and family. Additionally, Jack’s has 60 beers on tap making them have the largest selection of draft beers on the Jersey Shore and a kitchen open until 11:30 p.m. every night. 

Many of the staff are friendly and pleasant to ensure that your night out is worthwhile. 

If that wasn’t enough to convince you that this is one of the best bars in South Jersey, they also have happy hour Monday- Thursday, 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. serving $1 off all beers, wines, and cocktails while having a happy hour food menu. 

Tim expresses that his favorite item on his menu is the delicious goal line sandwich. His laidback restaurant is only getting better with adding a second location in Fair Haven and continuously having customers praising their food and liquor they have to offer. 

The restaurant also sells packaged goods to go, catering options, and is able to host events. Food is available until 10 p.m. and beer and wine until 2 a.m for packaged items.
