Second review will sound much like my first. This time we went twice on Tuesdays as kids eat for free. You can still run up a pretty large tab as the adults had king crab legs. A couple of points on the kids thing. It's good on Tuesdays 5-8. Get there at 5pm and you will get seated right... read more

My husband and I stumbled upon this great little place. We had the shrimp and scallops which were excellent and plenty of them. Was also nice to have a choice of green beans or baked potato as opposed to fries and coleslaw which many other restaurants offer. The waiter was very pleasant too. Def. going back!!!

The food was good, I had the unlimited snow crab legs (their Thursday special) and my wife had the swordfish. The swordfish was over cooked and tough but the crab legs were good. The only issue is that they must have set the thermostat to the same temperate as the walk in freezer because not only were we cold, but... More

Every July my husband and I vacation for 10 days near Avalon. We go to Oceanside at least twice while we are in the area. The soups(SHE CRAB and NEW ENGLAND CLAM) are to die for. The Flounder Fillet tastes like you just caught it and is not over breaded or overcooked. I am a saltwater fisher woman and I... More

We called to place our order. We asked for the market price and was given a quote. We went to pick the order up and all was not there. In addition to this, the market price on seafood was twice the amount as was originally quoted. Once receiving the goods, we called back the establishment to let them know of... More

Went here on Tuesday night for kids eat free. Both kids had the jumbo shrimp which are normally $12. Their meals were great. I had the broiled platter and the wife had shrimp and pasta both of which were very good. The service was excellent. The place was VERY clean. Would not hesitate to recommend or return!

Had a nice dinner there last night, first Sunday of the season they were opened so not all items available on the menu, but what they had tasted very good with ample portions. Definitely would go back, everything was fresh and tasted very good, with friendly service too!! Can't beat that.

We ate at Oceanside Seafood in 2012 and it was excellent. The seafood was extremely fresh. It's no frills, but nicely seasoned with large portions. We visited in September 2014 and the food was still fresh, no frills, large portions. Will go back again within the next few days.

Tuesday nights, two kids under 12 eat for free from the kids menu between 5-8pm...When I read these words, my wife and I knew we had to try it. Entering around 5:30pm it was a blur of fast moving friendly servers and adults outnumbers by those under 12 years old. This is exactly what I thought parenthood was going to... More
