Good Food, Good View

We tried Klein's for the first time and sat on the deck. Waiter was friendly and kept the waters refilled on a hot day. We tried the new england clam chowder, personally it was a bit thicker than we like, but I think its a personal preference. It was pretty good though. We had a fried clam... read more

Had dinner on the deck this past week. Horrible experience from the moment we arrived. Unprofessional staff, kitchen messed up husband's order. Klein's was great when it was smaller. Now it seems unmanageable, chaotic and worst of all, management doesn't seem to care. We won't be back!

Been there a few times and the outdoor patio is nice but the view over looks 35 and train, nice to watch all the boats though. The food is hit and miss and a little over priced. The wait staff is mostly good. The parking is a disaster if you go there at happy hour and on the weekends. I... More

AMAZING food - I got fish and chips and my boyfriend got the lobster salad sandwich - but shockingly small portions. We left hungry!

Have been going for years; used to be reasonably priced and consistent quality. No longer. Kleins has become inconsistent, higher prices than ever. A small piece of scrod - tasteless; my wife sent back an order of broiled scallops that were rubbery, and appear to have been re-heated. The replacement dishl, also scallops, was fresher but substandard. For the money,... More

Great view of shark river, decent atmosphere with accoustic guitar player most nights in the summer. Food is mediocre and you are best to keep it simple, don't challenge the kitchen with any thing other than broiled or fried. Decent happy hour at the bar.

Have been here many times before but this time was a huge disappointment. My mom had the broiled scallops served with baked potato and vegatables. As we were eating I spotted a LARGE BLACK HAIR in her carrots. I called the waitress over and she saw exactly what I was talking about. She asked if I wanted to see the... More

Love this restaurant. The service is good and the food is great. Unless you call and make reservations, the wait can be long especially in the summer months
