I absolutely love this place. I had my 30th Birthday dinner here and it was amazing. My sister brought a cake and they were so accommodating. The sushi is so good. I loved the view of the water.

Went to eat at Klein's on Saturday, and from start to finish we were very disappointed. At check in, no one seemed to be in charge, there wa sunorganized milling around. When our party of 4 were seated, we waited a good 10-15 minutes before being acknowledged. We were 3/4's of the way through dinner when someone shoved an arm... More

You know that correlation about people and opinions: "When food and service are deemed to be good, you will hear no complaints"....when it's not good, well,.....you hear it to high heaven. After two hours wait, leaving the restaurant without my wife having a bite prompted me to write these few words to remind people, especially resturant owners, that no matter... More

We were very disappointed with our first and certainly last trip here. They were understaffed, the cafe section was closed and the waitress in the tiki bar as well as the take out staff seemed like they had other things to do than assist customers. An order of fries came out as FOUR waffle fries in a large take out... More

Disappointing meal last night. Service was poor, maybe worse than usual. We live in the area and much prefer Bahr's Landing for seafood, but Klein's is closer and more convenient. It's in a nice spot on the water. The food has been acceptable in the past, and while the service is never good last night was atrocious. Our server did... More

Average food, ok service. We had flounder,fish and chips and shrimp which were ok. Setting is nicer in the summer but spring they keep plastic drapes and use heat lamps on the deck to keep out the cold. Summer most likely you will have to wait to get a table yesterday walked right in. Decor typical fishery, plastic chairs and... More

You can get breaded crabcakes at a million restaurants. Here, they're very good tempura crabcakes. The broiled local sea bass was perfectly cooked, slightly flaky without being dried out, and the baked potato was just right. To see what's going to be on the menu and be fresh, walk through the seafood market right beside.

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 face and make it... 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
