Of all of life’s events, your wedding celebration may be the most personal. We want it to be as unique as you are, to reflect your love and forever live in your memory. Parker’s Garage and Oyster Saloon offer a certain blend of authenticity and elegance. Our restaurants have long been known for quality and attention to detail, and we extend that to any special event you may have with our venue and catering services.
By the early 1900s, Beach Haven was a geographical embodiment of the good life; that mix of hard work on the bay and beach town relaxation. Ellis Parker opened a restaurant/houseboat rental operation, and later boat engine repair shop. We think of it as a golden age of Long Beach Island – the fishermen, the hotel guests, decoy carvers, barkeeps, kids rowing dinghies, the bootleggers, and baymen.
Today, Parker’s Garage is a celebration of all that. From our boat slips to our oyster saloon, we want to bring back that era. And we invite your family to be part of it.
Picture the perfect dress, a customized menu, strings of soft lights and your favorite music, all with a laid-back beach style. We can accommodate up to 180 of your friends and family – even the ones who don’t eat oysters (yet.).
Remember that neighborhood bar when you were growing up? It was simple, local, a couple of beer signs and a friendly barkeep. The Black Whale is Beach Haven’s corner bar, from Fred’s Beer Can Stash to crafted cocktails, that just happens to also be one of the best fish houses on LBI.
Folks come from far and wide for fantastic fresh seafood and other dishes, from the traditional to creative.
People gather at the Black Whale because of its intimacy. Our newly renovated event space is the perfect place for smaller gatherings. We can accommodate up to 50 of your friends and family, the perfect spot for showers, birthdays, company functions and rehearsal dinners.
