Spike’s Seafood Market opens at 8 a.m., and the restaurant starts serving at 11:30 a.m.

Restaurant staff and even some customers helped clean and repair the 86-year-old Jersey Shore hotspot for reopening.

The entire restaurant was not damaged by the storm, according to owner Steve Weinstein.

However, Sandy did destroy appliances, damage floors and push 50-foot boats up to the back door.

“We have never seen a storm like this and Spike’s has been through plenty of storms in 86 years,” he said. “We threw a lot out, including our inventory food.”

Weinstein says the restaurant looks exactly the same.

“Because of my amazing staff, we were able to reopen quickly,” he said.

Known for fresh seafood at the Jersey Shore, Spikes was originally owned by Spike Stengel, brother of Yankee great Casey Stengel. The fish market opened its doors in 1926.
