We usually come to Kleins several times during the summer. We love the location and atmosphere, as well as the tiki bar with live music. Until this visit, we also enjoyed the food. This time we were very disappointed. I ordered the soft shell crabs which were covered in a sauce that was too rich and I couldn't even chew... More

Well it had been awhile since my first experience at Kleins and now I know why I hadn't been there in several years.We sat outside on the deck that was nice. We started with soup,(manhattan and shrimp bisque)that was average. nothing special. My wife and I both had grilled fish. Grouper and halibut. They were tasteless, bland and dry. Very... More

I realized by the time we sat that there was a Tiki bar to the far left of the restaurant that would've been nice to hang out at instead of the benches on the sidewalk. They didn't really mention it. I would recommend sitting on the outdoor deck portion. We were just inside it which was fine, but it was... More

We went to Klein's for a birthday lunch and were very disappointed. The atmosphere is lovely, right on the water. Expecting the same wonderful food and service we experienced on a previous visit a few years back, we looked forward to this meal. It definitely was not the same restaurant we knew. It took the waiter about 10 minutes to... More

Sitting on the dock watching the boats and trains go by was great. The food... Only fair to average. Service was good, the waitress pleasant and attentive. If you eat there on a hot day, try to get a table that has a big umbrella. The table tops get really hot if not in the shade. Would probably not choose... More

Annie, our waitress was very nice and certainly tried hard. My grilled flounder was mediocre at best. My mom ordered lobster which was grilled far too long. It couldn't be cut even with a steak knife. The chopped salad was good but one expects far more from the entrees at a waterside seafood restaurant with an attached fish market.

We were here for lunch yesterday and the food colntinues to be delicious. We had the local blue fish platter and the clam chowder. The fries are memorable. The cole slaw is delicious and the fish is terrific. We had some really good steamers for an appetizer. The service is always good. Try to get a table on the deck... More

For years my family has gone to Klein's- either for lunch, an afternoon snack/drink, or dinner. Those days are officially over. Our waitress was not attentive, did not give correct information regarding food, drinks, and prices, and was flat-out not friendly. We ordered a half dozen clams, and a half dozen oysters. The quality of the food was poor at... More

The only unpleasant element of eating on the shore is the appalling traffic to get there. Klein's is a favourite with visitors and locals. Located near the bridge on the Shark river it is a perfect spot to sit and watch the world go by. One can also watch with admiration the boats tying up at the dock. The valet... More
