Website Thrillist.com has released a list of the best beach bars in America, and on that list is a Jersey Shore favorite - Donovan's Reef in Sea Bright.

"To be recognized as one of the top bars in the country, we're among some stellar company on that list" Donovan's Reef General Manager Michael Norris said.

The iconic spot, which opened in 1976, was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy in 2012, and did not fully reopen until May of this year, making their appearance on the list even more impressive.

Visitors to the bar say that seeing the business rebuild after Hurricane Sandy meant a great deal to them, along with praising their live music and well priced food and drinks.
