Klee’s Bar has been an important player in the Seaside Heights bar and restaurant scene since the early 1930s and is one of those rare places “where everybody knows your name.” Original owners, Ursula and Daniel Klee, arrived in town from Philadelphia in 1913. Sons Andrew and Henry assumed management of the business after they completed military service during World War II. Andrew retired in the late 1960s, but Henry continued to operate the business until about 1978. Present owners have made many improvements to the building over the years and have successfully maintained the restaurant’s family atmosphere. It is a Seaside Heights gem. I can remember that “400 Cases Cold Beer” sign as a kid, and asking myself, does somebody really count them?
I’m thinking the 1980s.
