Wow!! Mama D's is great!! The food is fresh and authentic and the service is wonderful. Mama D's is small, but it's not small on entrees, service or atmosphere. The food is very tasty. There 's a wide variety of dishes offered. It's obvious that people want to eat there. The line goes down the block waiting for a table.... More

We came in with a large party - called a few minutes before arriving - even though they don't take reservations - they anticipated our party of seven and had a table for us fairly quickly. It was around 10:00 pm on a Saturday night - the place was packed and pretty lively - the whole front of the restaurant... More

After a day of shopping and walking around the boardwalk we tried Mama D's for our first time. It is always packed with a wait, which usually indicates great food:) They were sweet enough to hand out rolls and slices of pizza while we waited outside the door. (Which helps with a 3yr old) Anyway, worth the wait- Staff was... More

There is no way you can go to this restaurant and not enjoy it. The food is terrific, the friendly service is spectacular and the atmosphere is just fun! While you are waiting for a table, you'll probably be offered some free appetizers and even more once you're in the restaurant! It has a NYC-vibe and plays lots of 70's... More

This place is small and usually packed, so you may have to wait to be seated. The food is good, servers are friendly and great service. Worth a visit.

Well now it is not the original Mama D's kitchen(I grew up with the original Mama D lol) but the food was soo good. It is small and we had to wait but it was soooo worth the wait. While waiting the staff came out with things to try while we were waiting. Huge bowl of butter garlic rolls-yummy. Ravioli,... More
