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...

Unless you're the parent of a horde of hungry noisy active kids, do not under any circumstances go on a Tuesday. You won't be able to concentrate enough to remember what you ate or drank. Your head will ring as you stagger outside, and all you'll be able to think of is to get home and watch a Phils game... More

The cost was reasonable, the food was decent. BYOB with no corkage fee and ice and bucket service. If you have kids you won't be self-conscious if they make a little noise. Given the costs of most of the restaurants on the seashore, this would be considered very family friendly. I believe they have one night of kids eat free.

good eats for a casual family atmosphere. all the food was fresh and tasty. The New England clam chowder was nice and a little different, a little sweet, compared to the local recipes here in New England.

Ahi Tuna was cooked as requested with a very good taste & seasonings. Also had haddock & scallops. Scallops were one of thes best that we have had. Average atmosphere but a good price for the area compared to others. Definitely could take families. Service was very good & our waiter was engaged & very attentive. When we come back... More

We ordered takeout for our group of 12, including 6 kids. The ordering process was very well organized, and we picked everything up on time. The lump crabmeat cakes were nicely done, but rather bland. The clam strips were okay. A pasta with white clam sauce was average, again a little bland. A little attention to spices would make everything... More

Umm, blackened salmon, not too salty. Will return. The restaurant is very low key, and serves fresh, great seafood.

We went here for Tuesday night kids eat free.. 6 adults and 5 small children. It took over an hour to get our food. Crab cakes were average at best, salmon was tasteless and penne was greasy and gross. Plus,they do not have a changing table for kids. How do you market kids eat free to attract families and don't...

The place was clean, neat, but nothing special. The server was an order taker, not someone that would engage the diner. He didn't offer any suggestions or describe any of the dishes or make a suggestion...all he offered was, the veggie tonight is green beans (did described if they were steamed, sautéed, or raw). She started with a bowl of... More
