Great location on Shark River!

Our family made a return trip to Klein's as we were in the area. We ate at the Waterside Cafe. We found the food to be very good yet a little pricey. Serving sizes off the lunch menu were of good size. What we really enjoy about Klein's is the wonderful service and the great ambiance sitting next... read more

Klein's is our favorite "go to" restaurant in Belmar.. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. The service is excellent as the servers are very friendly and knowledgeable and you can opt to sit outside either in the protected area or under the sky, both with water views. Love the drinks and our new favorite, the "boom boom shrimp" appetizer.... More

I was disappointed in the food at Kleins. My wife and I ordered fish sandwiches and they were both extremely plain and bland. Each sandwich was $18 and came with waffle fries, which happened to be the best part of the meal. But for that price I would expect a tasty sandwich, instead ours were dry and lacking seasoning or...

Food was good. Menu had all the typical dishes you would expect in a shore restaurant. Staff was young and friendly. Really enjoyed the Fried Calamari and the Shrimps with Scallops. My only complaint was the cost of my drink. I had a Grey Goose on the rocks and it cost $15.95. I thought that was way over the top... More

My boyfriend and I were looking for something quick with a reasonable price . He's not a huge seafood fan but we both got what we were looking for. Definitely would go again

This location was selected by a family member who is a shore local. Quite a long wait, but we were able to pass the time at the outside tables. Seated in a table with a water views, but not outside, allowing us to watch the water, but was also abut busy as it was right by the only restroom in... More

Enjoy an all-you-can-eat Sundy brunch while watching the party boats navigate the Shark River inlet. Brunch has all the staples for breakfast including made to order omelets, but the Ollie Klein's speciality is the fresh sushi, crab clusters and fish of the day on the buffet. Caution: don't overeat the fresh bread and hot carvery, because around the corner there... More

I used to frequent Klein's years ago. Time has not served them well. The cuts served were obviously cheap. The filet mignon was a gristly mess. The wings were so poor on meat you could see the bones before taking a bite! The seafood was so-so. Add on indifferent service and a beer selection just a notch better than frat... More

Klein's is consistently good for great fish. The staff is attentive and kind. My kids love their fish and chips. Request a seat outback. Beautiful views. Really good value for their early bird special.

We went to the lunch area, which was right on the water, with drawbridges entertaining us both ways we were seated. The food was delicious. Wish there had been more fried oysters on the fried oyster platter. What we had was super great. Could have eaten more. Very family-friendly and great environment for us after a fun day on the...
