Klee’s Bar & Grill

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?

  This is from the 1960s.










I’m thinking the 1980s.

This is a video of scenes from the annual St. Patrick’s Parade held in Seaside Heights yesterday (March 12, 2011). The video starts with pre-parade activities at Station 44 and then video shot from inside Ladder 4401 along the parade route. The final 15 minutes of the video shows parade highlights shot from Hancock Avenue and the Boulevard. Give your mouse a left click over the photo to get the video rolling.
