The results are in, and our loyal readers are clear: Toms River just does not have any good places to take the kids.
This week we asked readers to rate the most family-friendly restaurant in the area. Out of 119 votes, 57, or 47 percent, chose "There aren't any good places."
The only area restaurant to get more than a handful of votes was Friendly's, at Hooper Avenue and Route 37. Friendly's 29 votes was good for second place, with third going to "other."
Check back Monday for a new Readers' Choice poll and thanks for voting!

The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results and reviews on Patch Places. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch.
