Back in the day Bud’s Bait Box, Dairy Joy Ice Cream, Harry’s General Store, Madelyn’s Restaurant, Surfside Restaurant and The Waverly Inn were just some of the favorite local businesses. The area became more year round in the early 1970’s and the commercial businesses that once thrived and flourished in Indian Neck slowly shut down and the landmark Waverly Inn burned to the ground.

Today there is a wonderful selection of restaurants in Indian Neck to create a wonderful dining experience no matter what your cuisine.
