HOUSED IN THE FAMOUS 5TH AVENUE PAVILION

The Iron Whale is a new up-scale seafood restaurant, located in the soon to be completed Fifth Avenue Pavilion on the famous Asbury Park Boardwalk. Run by Executive Chef Michael Dolan, this rustic yet contemporary beachfront restaurant features outdoor dining with a view of the ocean, an open kitchen that can be seen from the bar, and décor that includes reclaimed wood, rope and an attractive fireplace.

CONTEMPORARY DESIGN

The new eatery is located next to Tim McLoone’s Supper Club, and the redesigned Robinson Ale House. Finishing touches are also in progress for the famous exterior bandshell, which will feature stadium seating, a raised stage and dance floor. The adjacent rooftop restaurant and bar will offer unique floor to ceiling windows, that will lend themselves to that special outdoor feel.
