Good food, good atmosphere

I had the spicy shrimp, which were good, although the pasta was a bit overcooked. We had a calamari salad, and the squid was very tender. Service was pretty good, the wait for the table was short but the wait for our food was close to 40 minutes. Location is a bit out of the way, but the... read more

Been here before and food always good (except the pasta is always overcooked) but service needs to improve. First they need to get rid of the rude hostess who got our reservation day wrong and then acted like it was our fault when we arrived with small children. Second they should promote the food runner girl to manager. She was... More

Our favorite seafood restaurant in the Spring Lake - Belmar area. Make sure you reserve, particularly during summer months. This place fill quickly. Very popular with locals and visitors alike. A fish market in front, you can see what's fresh. Menu changes to reflect that daily catch. Save room for desserts, they come from a local source and are excellent.... More

Surprisingly nice setting for a restaurant that is also a fish market. Clean, light wood setting. The fish is fresh, lightly cooked and service is cheerful. Beware, your meal is cooked to order and the kitchen can only accommodate one party at a time. Eating unfashionably early helps. Make reservations. Fried shrimp, clams, steamers.

Awesome Ipswich clams in a fluffy batter! We ordered ours with double vegetables instead of a veg and a starch (rice, potatoes). Their chowders are marvelous. the conch fritters are lovely and spicy. The staff is attentive. BYOB. Two large rooms and a seafood market. Everything looked fresh! Parking in front and two handicapped spots, too.

I live down the street and at least once a week I get fresh fish to bring home and grill. I have never had anything but the freshest seafood around. Shrimp, scallops, oysters, salmon, sea bass, etc. They will also steam anything if you want. I highly recommend it.

The seafood is good and fresh. It is very casual and you can go in your shorts from the beach or a little more formal. The wait staff Iis pleasant and attentive.

They have a byob policy, which is great if you know ahead of time. So grab your wine and beer! The place was busy even for a Tuesday evening. I enjoyed my side dishes more than my entree. The coleslaw, mashed potatoes and vegetables were all delicious. The stuffed shrimp was good but not great, a little dry. My husband... More

Had lunch here - they have a 6.99 lunch menu which is quite reasonable. Many fried fish sandwiches, lots of fresh fish plus raw clams and oysters- atmosphere is clean and bright - it is a byob too. From one of the locals, it is very crowded at night but they do take reservations. Our party of four were all... More
