At $3.75 for a small cone and $6.50 for a milk shake, Carlson’s Corner is not inexpensive, but its location at the picturesque Manasquan Inlet is hard to beat. Summer at the Jersey Shore is not complete without a visit to Carlson’s – and the...More

The food is always good at Carlson's. I figured out that a five dollar burger where you add onion, tomato and lettuce at 25 cents each is cheaper than ordering a California burger. It's the same thing, but the CA burger goes for 6.25. I...More

Carlson's was the beach burger and fries shack of my childhood. So - to me it is a perfect place. Outside picnic tables overlooking the inlet and the fishermen. Little White House with red trim - walk-up ordering - fries, burgers and now fish sandwich...More
