Bar glass from the famous Zaberers Restaurant (steak house) which was located just outside of Atlantic City , NJ from 1961 until the early 1980’s. It was owned by Charlie Zaberer and his wife Rita. Brother Ed Zaberer owned his own restaurant in Wildwood, NJ.

This unique, thick, heavy glass has no chips or cracks. Its’ black logo on the front is in nice condition, as well as the race horse picture on the back side. Race horse because the restaurant was located one mile east of the race course (track). Glass measures 8” tall and 5” wide and weighs over 3 pounds. I’m told it was used at the bar to serve patrons crackers, as well as for customers to leave their tips.

Please review the photos included with the listing to be sure you are comfortable with the condition and quality before buying. Photos are considered part of the description.

An internet search reveals many articles and comments from people who loved going to Zaberers, have great memories and even worked t, so I don’t have to tell you how special this glass is to many. I did not go to this one, but did enjoy Ed’s in Wildwood. I remember the Tiffany lamps were beautiful.

History:

Charlie and his brother Ed started the famous Zaberers restaurants. Ed opened Zaberers in Wildwood in 1960, followed by Charlie opening outside of Atlantic City in 1961.

The Gables Inn located on the Black Horse Pike and Delilah Road was a popular eatery back in 1929. In 1960, Charlie and Rita Zaberer purchased the inn, renovated and changed its’ name to Zaberers and opened for business on June 12, 1961. Over the years many rooms and a gift shop were added. The restaurant became a huge success with its’ motto, “Just Minutes Away” on signs as far away as Pennsylvania . Zaberers seated 1,200 patrons and employed 160 waitresses, 50 bartenders and 30 car jockey’s. He offered themed dining rooms and animated characters. Adult diners could enjoy “Zaberized” cocktails and live music while their children entertained themselves in the game room. Charlie died in 1971 and the words “Minutes Away” is on his tombstone. Rita continued Zaberers and serving its' famous dinners and “Zaberized” (king-sized) cocktails until the early 1980’s when the opening of casinos in Atlantic City took away its’ business. The property was later sold and building demolished.
