I've taken my pooch on weekend trips to Michigan and elsewhere, but Wildwood doesn't seem to be the right place for a dog. Can't take him to the beach until October, the boardwalk seems like a no-go and the car is too hot. I love my dog, but a vacation to the Jersey Shore doesn't seem fair to him or me.

I agree its not when we go on Vacation it is like Vacation from the dogs too you know like your children....You still love your children but when they go back to school after a long Summer Break you are happy they are back but you do still love them.....My Dog Margaret she is the diabetic dog she can't take the heat either it can be 65,75 etcetra the sun being strong even when you have a cool breeze bothers her and Tootie the other dog if she hears a wave she will run she is a little scaredy dog LOl

 My one complaint about Wildwood is  that it's not dog-friendly. In Miami you can bring your dog to almost any restaurant with outdoor seating and on Hollywood Beach they have a section set aside for dogs on weekends from mid-afternoon to sundown. I guess I see the obvious problem with dogs on the boardwalk...but I don't know why you can't bring small dogs if they're in a doggie stroller (My husband said if I took our shih tzu out in a stroller he'd walk 50 feet behind and pretend he didn't know me..but I'd still do it Wink)
Where can you take dogs on the beach in October?
Also, just because a hotel allows dogs, don't assume it's not nice. I've stayed in some beautiful luxury hotels that even provided dog pillows and fresh-baked treats.

I imagine a lot of motels are worried about the barking... not that a bunch of screaming kids or loud drunks talking outside the rooms are any better.

The "pet" issue isn't one I've thought about much, admittedly. I don't own a dog and we wouldn't bother bringing out two cats on vacation with us. But, I can see where it would be a concern for people who would want to take their pets on vacation with them.
 
I'm taking kind of an "outsider's" look at this thing, but it seems to me that Wildwood is a lot more pet friendly than it has been in recent years. Again, maybe it's just me, but more and more motels seem to admitting pets. Or, again, maybe it's just that it's something I've never really paid attention to in the past.
 
Anyway, it's nice to hear good things about a place like the Red Horse. Prior to recently, that was one of the motels it seemed we never heard much of anything about...

Is Russo's Italian Restaurant in North Wildwood still open?


Does anyone remember Maggio's Italian Market on Pacific Ave?

I know that it is long gone, but they had the best Italian coldcuts and rolls in all of the Wildwoods.

Russo's Italian Restaurant on Park is fantastic.  I make sure I go there at least once when I'm in Wildwood.  I'll also stop there if I'm in Atlantic City too.

Probably anywhere, "allowed" or not.  At peak, when lifeguard patrol during the day, once 5:30pm passes and the guards leave, dogs come out.  They tend to stay close to the water while their owners walk with them.  When I was in Wildwood last week, there were no lifeguards at all, relatively quieter beaches, and some dogs at different times thru the day.

Your right! Wildwood is def not a pet friendly town. Yes, Some places have tried to change but for the most part they are still way behind with the times when it comes to animals.

Red Horse seems to fall through the cracks becuase its on the bay side. Always looked like a nice little place and the deli across the street is pretty good.

I honestly am not sure of who owns Marcellas.  If I find out, I'll be sure to post the info.


Jersey Girl:

Thank you for your interest.

Thread Resurrection:  
 
Between it being Taylor's and Marcella's it was the Polonez Deli.  
Was a cross between a Polish restaurant/buffet and Polish Deli.
First time me and my family went I saw a friend from colleges car in the driveway.
Turned out her family owned the place at that time.
Being a Ukrainian family we loved the place.
Sadly after a few years it may have became too much work for them and they sold.
Even though the place was relatively new the closure of it kinda pushed Wildwood from a definate trip to a "eh whenever trip" to my parents.
 
 
I loved getting a sandwich for the beach from Taylors when it was around.  
 
Just filling in the piece of history between Marcellas and Taylor.

I remember the Polonez Deli and am pretty sure I have a picture of the Polish flag that was on the side of the building.  Russo's in NWW was a favorite haunt in my NWW/Silver Sands/ Chateau Bleu days. Always loved the smell of that place... yummy cold cuts!
