I called saturday afternoon to see if the happy hour pricing was still on. Vern answered and said yes until six but weather isn't great but you can still sit outside in the tented area it is heated if you want to. He never clarified that the happy hour pricing would not be available in that area, only at the... More

Recently my wife and I visited Klein's on a Saturday around 3:00pm. We were promptly seated and served a chilled bottle of Riesling. We ordered a broiled shrimp appetizer and we both had fish dishes. Everything was cooked as expected and properly served by our pleasant waitress. Excellent food, service and atmosphere. We will visit again soon.

First I ordered the halibut which came out bland and tasteless so I sent it back. Then I ordered the local sea bass...equally bland, tasteless, lacked any seasonings and care of preparation. This was my second time here and remember that my initial impression was similar. Also prices are too high for the obvious lack of attention to their food... More

We dined outside at Klein's recently on a beautiful day. The waitstaff is very friendly, and the menu offers a very large variety of choices, and wonderful seafood. We have never been disappointed there. We will visit again.

3 different lobster dinners with steamer appetizers, potatoes and veggie sides are worth the sometimes long wait. bar is big, friendly. however $12.95 for tito's vodka is more than a bit much. $36 for a 1 1/2 lb. lobster is a the high end. but, when u get your partially split lobster and start on its sweet, fresh meat, all...

We wanted to go to the outdoor river view dining room in the nicer building but a young child and rain made us try the counter style sister eatery across the street. It had TWO tables and we were not expecting much. We were wrong. It was fantastic. We will definitely return on our next NJ shore visit. Delicious, friendly... More

we've been there a few times. Fish is very fresh. last time we went was for Sunday Brunch. it was OK. I think it is overpriced for the regular menu. they need a better chef.

We went to this restaurant on recommendation of a friend who lived near the area. The view of the river was fabulous. However, since there was a 15-20 minute wait, we agreed to sit in the enclosed part of the restaurant with a view of the back deck & the river. The room was freezing ! We asked that the... More

Ate outside with a nice view of the water. Service was good. Took a little while to come over through. Food was ok as well. Decent amount of parking across the street. Definitely a place to go for the view.
