Let's Explore Aberdeen

Restaurants, Coffee Shops and More

For a town that’s not that HUGE, there are some yummy options for eating.  There really is something for everyone located within the Matawan / Aberdeen Borders.  Court Jester, is a casual restaurant & bar offering classic American fare, beers on tap & wines by the glass.  Located in what those of us who grew up here as the “Strathmore Shopping Center”, this is a popular place to stop by for a quick meal, a night out with family and friends and a place to catch a sports game!  Mahzu is another VERY VERY popular location also in the “Strathmore Shopping Center”. It’s a Japanese BYOB spot with sushi staples & chefs putting on hibachi shows in family-friendly digs.  We have spent many family occasions there celebrating, and I can tell you the food and atmosphere is fantastic!  Let me clarify.  To most of us who have been here for a long time, we call the “shopping strip on Hwy 34” the Strathmore Shopping Center.  However, this specific area is truly called the Aberdeen Town Square Shopping Center.  There are wonderful places to eat right in this one area.  Deninos is another favorite specializing in crispy thin-crust pies.  I will tell you, it gets crazy crazy crowded on Fri and Sat nights, so give yourself time when you head over, even if it’s for pick up!  Below Is a list of some of the other options in the area.  Check out my blog article naming the Best Places to Eat in Aberdeen and Matawan.  Keep in mind, this info was gathered by the “local” in the community!

Hi Everyone.  My name is Cori Dunphy and I am a  full-time real estate agent living in, loving, and serving the fabulous county of Monmouth, New Jersey, and specializing in Marlboro / Morganville Township.   I love working with buyers and sellers all around our fabulous county. I have been living in Monmouth County for 48 years and selling Real Estate for close to 18 years!  I’m the wife to an elementary school principal and simply an amazing guy,  and the mom to 2 Fabulous boys, Max and Jake.

I have loved real estate for as long as I can remember.  I didn’t originally start in this profession.  After graduating from the University of Rhode Island I worked in the Men’s Garment District for years, and then owned a textile company with my dad!  I knew the traveling would have to stop when I wanted to start a family, so FINALLY, I got to dive right into the career I always knew I loved!  If I’m not out and about selling real estate you can find me on a soccer field. I am a ⚽ soccer mom  ⚽, in every sense of the word!

I love traveling, anything beach-related, sports and just having a good time with family and friends.  I look forward to helping you along your real estate journey!
