Amazing view of shark River.

We went for lunch basically to observe the service and see the menus. If you are an easy going relaxed person who wants to sit on the deck and be mesmerized by the water and passing boats this is the place! My salad was delicious! The server was friendly and did a superb job. The lunch menu is... read more

Stopped here for lunch and while it was somewhat nice sitting next to the water although the view consists of the underside of a highway and a rusty railroad bridge. I had the shrimp cocktail, a beer and a cod sandwich - the bill was $40. While I don't mind paying for good food I thought it was very average,... More

Our large group all enjoyed their meals. We sat in a covered space outside and for a nice evening experience. Good service.

My family and I had a very good meal outside along the River. It was so pleasant and the food was good. I had a perfect Caesar Salad and Crab Cakes with a Baked Potato. (Nice that you can get Crab Cakes either fried or broiled.) Some in our group had the Sea Bass special, Lobster Roll and for the... More

Seafood always taste better when you are sitting next the water. The friendly staff served a delightful seafood meal while enjoying the views. Come early for discounts on food and drinks.

Kleins has been known locally to have the freshest fish around. The restaurant has been preparing that fish with locally grown ingredients as well combining them into a wonderful meal. We had dinner there on a Saturday, early evening for my wifes birthday and we were delighted with the meal and the service. We had a reservation and were seated... More

I have written a review about Klein's and that review still stands. A great place for good food and friends after a day soaking up the sun and ocean. Friendly and efficient service, relaxing atmosphere. But I wouldn't recommend the brunch. We came with two friends and could have ordered the sit-down lunch, but my husband was interested in trying... More

We took full advantage of the lobster specials in October as well as the clams appetizer. Really this would be a 4.5 - I would have liked a little garlic in the "butter" but did appreciate that it was olive oil and not 100% butter. The lobster was steamed to perfection. This place knows how to do seafood, with bibs... More

The four of us came here for dinner on Sunday. The location is awesome and view of the inlet is great. Service was good, but the plates that came out for appetizers were dirty, with food stuck to them and grease on the edges. After the plates were changed, the appetizers came and tasted great. We ordered two king crab... More
