Highly priced, small portions, gross taste!! $186 spent on takeout that we did not enjoy. I was embarrassed to even serve it to our house guests!

Excellent. From the food to the service, eating at this place is a must. We had the lobster rolls with fried calamari and clams. Everything was fresh and cooked to perfection. It was very easy to order and we received a call when the food...was ready. Very nice experience. I look forward to next time I eat here.More

We decided to try this place based on the ratings and reviews but unfortunately we were disappointed with our meals and would not return.

This is a true hidden gem. It is a family operated business. You can see it in the owner sitting behind the counter to his mom helping out in the kitchen to the grandson cleaning the tables. The food was fresh and delicious. Some reviews...complained about paying a high price and then giving you plastic silverware. To that I say do you care more about how the food tastes or the silverware? At the end of the day the food tasted great. It was well worth the money. I visited here for the first time with my wife. She started out with the white clam chowder and we shared a dozen little neck steamers. Let me tell you while the chowder was awesome the butter sauce with the steamers is what true happiness is. They should bottle this sauce and sell that on its own. My wife got the broiled fish and crab cake & I got the broiled seafood combo. Both were delicious. This is hands down the best meal of our trip. Will definitely come back when we come down the shore again.More

The clams, crabs, shrimp and fried fish was amazing. Our server Lilly was sweet as pie and the owner is our new best friend. We will eat here evertime we visit wildwood.

Absolutely loved this “hole in the wall”! Food was outstanding, prices were fair, and the atmosphere made us feel like family. Had the mussels- possibly the best I’ve EVER had!!

This is one of our go-to restaurants when we go to Wildwood. Not only is the food delicious, there is an outdoor bar and entertainment as well. It is a fantastic dining experience for all ages.

We purchased 2 lobster rolls and they were terrible. The sandwich did not have a good taster and we order 2/one came with fries to the tune of $47. Not worth it

Awesome seafood takeout dinner! Fried flounder and stuffed flounder platters perfectly made with baked potatoes, French fries and the “best ever” homemade coleslaw! Must call ahead for the best seafood you’ve ever eaten!
