North Wildwood Treasures
Jan 20th, 2011, 1:22pm
 
Ooooooh, look at what I found recently! Menus from Garrabrant's Seafood Restaurant and Hollywood Ice Cream formerly in North Wildwood! Both of these have to be from the 70s. I have many fond memories of Hollywood especially! Thanks Heavens my Mom is a "saver"!...

Intersting, I would not have thought chicken nuggets would on menus until the mid 1980's.

Hulk: Which menu are you seeing Chicken nuggets?
 
I do like the parental warning on the Garrabrant's menu! Heh! Wink
 
Martin: Hollywood Ice Cream would have been across the street from the Roman Holiday. If you use Bing Map search, it's the pink house behind the motel.

wow.. Great stuff. I do not remember either... I would have figured I would have remembered Garrabrant's Seafood cause we loved to eat out as a kid and we were there every year through about 78 or so.. .. But then again I think we were mostly cresters back then.. Was Garrabrant's Seafood where Sunburgs seafood was after?

I'm not familiar with Sunburgs, Flyin, so I can't say.
 
These brochures were such an awesome find for me. Especially the ice cream shop. I remember trying to get back to the Ocean Spray with it before the summer heat melted it! LOL!

The chicken nuggets are on the Garrabrant's TOO menu, front page.  One of their "features" for take out, I suppose haha.  Great stuff.  Never heard of these places, but again, mostly a crestie, and this was definitely before my time. Smiley

WOW, what awesome finds. Thanks, SA!  Cheesy
 
Frank, I'm fairly sure that Sundberg's was located at 2nd & NY Ave., so chances are it and Garrabrant's were the same place.

I always thought the chicken nuggets thing started with mcdonald's around 1981. How old is the first menu?

Garrabrant's then Sunberg's then finally Captain Mac's. I think the people that ran it at the end are now affialated with JoJo's on Old NJ Ave across from Keenen's.

Ahhhh! Ok I see it now!
 
It's quite feasible that the menu was from either 1981 or 1982 as I know our family was down those years.

The chicken nugget concept began years before the 1980s McDonalds McNugget. My younger sister used to order chicken nuggets at a Wetson's near Elizabeth NJ back around 1974 when they called them "Chick-n-littles." They were not available at all the Wetson's restaurants and didn't last more than a year on their menu - and neither did Wetson's since they seemed to disappear about a year later.

"The Oscar" was $9.95? My dad balked at spending $1.35 for unleaded on the Turnpike in the 1980s.

Interesting, but I think "nugget"  was used first by mcdonalds.
