Stick to appetizers, had a bunch, they were all excellent, the mains were disappointing. Peanut butter bar was a great desert.

Tomahawk was really hopping! Is it the busiest place in town these days? We got a couple of appetizers and no main (we had already eaten), food was really good. A little pricey though.

Interesting article about liquor licenses in Lakewood.

https://www.app.com/story/news/local/2022/07/19/restaurant-bar-liquor-license-nj-lakewood/65373306007/
Wow

What an onerous cost to gate-keep new restaurants out. If anything, they should charge the tax as a rolling percentage without the prepayment...
