Morey’s Piers has opened a brand-new contemporary boardwalk family restaurant known as Joe's Fish Co. at Morey’s Surfside Pier, located at 25th Street in North Wildwood.
Joe's Fish Co. is named after the late eatery entrepreneur, Joe Marchiano – the founder of Curley’s Fries. The new boardwalk eatery, under the direction of Executive Chef Wally Jurusz, expands upon the Curley’s Fries location in front of Morey’s Surfside Pier in North Wildwood and offers a wide selection of menu options for hungry boardwalk patrons.
“Joe's will serve locally caught fish, locally grown produce, by our local Executive Chef Wally Jurusz,” notes Executive Vice President, Jack Morey, “but the beer, wine, and tequila for our specialty margaritas will all be international.”
Jurusz intends to emphasize local and regional finfish and shellfish, and will also offer a variety of non-seafood items. Entrées will include brick oven pizzas, hearty salads, sharable appetizers and Morey’s famous "Curley Fries." In addition, sandwiches like panini, burgers and wraps will be served. Joe's Fish Co. will also offer a variety of drink options. Besides a selection of sodas and the boardwalk's celebrated "Lemon Shake Up,” there will be bottled and draft beers, wine by the glass and bottle, and Joe's Fish Co.'s signature drink, the Margarita.
Notes Morey’s Executive Vice President, Jack Morey, “Joe's is designed to celebrate both the Shore and the Boardwalk in a fresh and re-inventive manner. Our goal is to make the boardwalk a destination for great amusement attractions and great food.”

On the ECC’s next visit to the Wildwoods, it may be enjoying a new, state-of-the-art roller coaster. The company is in the last stages of planning an elaborate coaster that would start on Surfside Pier, near the Nor’easter, and work its way across that pier, the adjoining beach, and a portion of Hunts Pier before returning to Surfside.
Interviewed some months ago, when the plan was winding its way through local approvals, Mike Porch, who was then Executive Director of Main Street, praised the new attraction. “This will help surrounding businesses, and will help maintain the Wildwoods as a first-class tourist designation,” Porch said. “It may even spearhead us through the present economic crisis. “There's a lot of competition out there – what’s the best, hottest new roller coaster, and some people actually plan their trips around these rides.”
According to the Morey Organization’s Clark Doran, the company enjoyed “smooth sailing” in obtaining local approvals from North Wildwood’s planning board approval and Wildwood’s zoning board, and now is awaiting a CAFRA permit. “We’re optimistic about that last approval,” he said. “We’re very excited about the project, and boardwalk merchants are thrilled.” Doran said that the multimillion-dollar project will take approximately a year “in fabrication,” and a year of on-site construction.
