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

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

Price was reasonable and food was great. We had a party of 10 and they were very accommodating. We had a very short wait time. Would definitely return.

Tried Oceanside seafood last summer for my birthday and let me tell you I couldn't be more pleased! Michelle was so welcoming right off the bat. The waitress was very friendly, and went above and beyond to make sure our experience was the best. I had the all you can eat snow crabs and they were delicious. I highly recommend... More

Food was good. Prices were OK for the area and the service was good as well. I will return again. We found that our waiter was friendly and helpful. He made some recommendations that my wife went with and she was happy with the choice.

Went there for the first time and it was horrible. Our waitress was hard to find and had to ask another one to find her. Order was messed up, I was served dressing that expired 4 months ago. The water tasted nasty. They were out of milk. When I said something to the waitress, she got very rude and said,... More

Not a bad place. Our waitress was friendly enough. They were out of quite a few things on their menu so my husband and I went with the crabcake. They were good. Nothing spectacular. Fries were good. My husband's green beans were steamed with absolutely no seasoning of any kind on them. Out of all the places we tried during... More

Was in south jersey the week of 9-23-13. Ate here on our last night. For four of us bill was 126 dollars! Three fried combos, two cups of soup, an order of calamari, and brother in law got order of fifty clams for his dinner. Although he said they were okay the rest of us thought we could have gotten...
