Stripers features local seafood on the water with a sunset view of the river and ocean, private beach, and a waterside bar. Have a drink and an appetizer in one of our adirondack chairs on our lawn, or come inside for a great meal, with plenty of options for those who would prefer an alternative to seafood.

We just had drinks here one late afternoon, and the location was perfect. The service is prompt and professional, there is a huge choice of cocktails and wines, and small or large bites to eat. It is a quieter place for happy hour it seemed, a lot of couples, if you are looking for crazy music or are a wild... More

Reserved a pleasant water view table for lobster special dinner. Nearby table had inattentive adults with very noisy 3-year old plus an infant. Bellowing continued thruout our meal. Manager offered free dessert but we couldn't wait to pay and exit. Why not restrict dining room to young children after 6pm and save everyone else this embarrassment?

The food is good, but the service is terrible. Most restaurants understand the basic principle that the starter comes before the main/entree. I had mussels as a starter. A dish of mussels in their shells takes 15-20 minutes to eat. So we didn't expect to get the mains while I was still eating the mussels. The waitress blamed the kitchen... More

We had an awful dinner at Stripers. I started with a very watery lobster chowder. My husband had a Caesar salad that was highly overdressed with a mediocre dressing. My husband had the fish and chips. The fish was heavily battered and greasy. His fries were lousy frozen fries. I had the lazy lobster (lobster out of the shell). It... More

This is my first Trip Advisor review. All I can say is that given good food this restaurant would be wonderful but high prices for bad food is a miss, particularly for a party of summer locals like us. My last time at this restaurant was a few years ago, and the food was terrible then. Our friends assured us... More

Fabulous service, extraordinary tastes, lots of passion. Started with the Seabreeze cocktail, made with real grapefruit juice - lived it. The Caesar salad was beyond belief. I am hoping to be able to recreate that taste at home. As for the lobster pot pie (which I tasted), the pastry was outstanding and the sweet sherry was not overbearing and just... More

My friends and I had a mixed dinner here. The service was good. Both the bread and my entree, the redfish, were much too salty for me. The redfish was also quite dry. The cranberry, quinoa, kale salad was excellent. My friend had the tuna, another excellent dish. Another friend ordered the pound and a half lobster--definitely not a pound... More

Had a wonderful evening with excellent food and a beautiful ocean view. Although we were a little disappointed that we could not drink a special bottle of wine we brought (house rules), the dinner was memorable and the waitress was especially enthusiastic. Would go again and again.
