Delicious seafood

Normally I can't eat a lot of seafood, but after eating here twice I would absolutely go back again. If you sit outside on the river (even in the off-season), it's nice and it doesn't smell fishy like you'd think it would. In the summer it's comfortable and breezy, but the sun doesn't shine in your... read more

My last review if Kleins was negative however, when I see a change I want to share the information. Friends from out of town wanted to go so I reluctantly agreed. This visit we had a terrific waiter and the food was actually very good. We had calamari which was cooked perfectly and friends had clams that they said were... More

I came here with friends for an early New Year's Eve dinner. The staff was A+ and very professional. My friend and I ordered Shrimp Francaise and it was outstanding. My other friend ordered the crab cakes and said she wasn't thrilled. She tasted too much breading. Another friend ordered scallops and loved it. I would only return during a... More

Previously enjoyed dining here for lunch,& dinner but recently enjoyed a holiday Brunch. Delicious food, varied choices including sushi and top quality shell fish. Service was impeccable. The waitress was very involved and went the extra mile to insure we had a great experience.There was child friendly activities and lots of attention to toddlers which enhanced everyone's day.

Although I have lived in the area most of my life, I have never eaten at Klein's. My husband and I went to Klein's for dinner with two other couples. The setting was lovely with many windows and nice view of the water. I was disappointed with the food. I am sure that the fish was fresh but it needed... More

I have eaten here before but this time it was very good. It was not crowded which May have helped but the service and the food was very good. Get a good seat by making a reservation and get a view of the Marina.

Great seafood at this established restaurant on the inlet and a great view too! I have never had a bad meal here. Appetizers and main courses are great portions!

Liked the hand carved beef and turkey. Service was slow at first but then picked up. Nice eggs to order

This place is huge so seating shouldn't be a problem, but reservations are recommended in the high season. It sits on a marina so outside dining is pleasant and they have a large deck area to dine at. Food and service are both good. The usual standard seafood menu but the fish is fresh and made good.

Since discovering Klein's in 2008, I never eat dinner anywhere else while at the Jersey shore. It's perfect for singles, couples, and especially families with children. The drinks are generous and the seafood is top quality and totally fresh. I get a lobster dinner at least once and the second night something else, maybe salmon, tuna, but always with waffle...
